No names, no pack drill, but Outsider has heard tell of a recent financial services company off-site (love-in) which ended with two participants being tended to in the emergency department.
Now, of course, Outsider would never attend an off-site on the basis that anything he needs to achieve can generally be achieved on-site – his comfy chair in the man cave not far from the big screen TV.
So, if Outsider had been asked to go mountain biking as part of an off-site bonding session then he would have politely declined and retreated to the Jason Recliner and his comforting bottle of single malt. Young folk are rarely so wise.
Thus, as Outsider hears it, one off-site participant found himself flying over the handle-bars – something which resulted in stitches, while another female participant was last seen hobbling out on crutches.
Outsider’s advice is that for your next off-site you should consider full contact tiddlywinks or Jason Recliner bonding sessions. Then, too, just a cup of tea, a Bex and a good lie down would probably work.
Outsider intends remaining firmly on-site.
