My Boss had decided to take the whole team on a jolly next week on Wed/Thur. He is taking us all to our corporate hospitality centre (They bought a posh hotel and did it up!) to have our team brief, stay over and enjoy the grub!!!.

Problem is this place is famous for its food, tis mental. All you can eat breakfasts, sweets and fresh muffins in all rooms, 3 course lunch and 5 course dinner!!!!

I dont think I can go, cos of all the food and I dont want work colleagues thinking I odd by refusing to eat with them as its team bonding time!!!!

If I can think of a good excuse I could stay in office and man the fort :p.

Any excuses gratfully received.

OMG -- flips sake what a nightmare - I think you should go and speak to your boss in private and be straight up with him about your reasons.

Any boss wants staff who are self motivated and holds themselves to high standards, discipline, will power and determination are all very commendable attributes. Your boss will respect you for it I am sure and will understand... tell him once you get to your goal you would love to participate in team events. Maybe there are team events organised during the day that you could go to but not stay over????

^^^ What the mad Irish gambler said....

Honesty is always the best policy in my book :)

I can't lie to save my life I just go bright red lol :eek: *

* = (apart from.... jumping trains without a ticket & being quizzed by the guards.... trying it on in shops.... when I'm on the phone negotiating... blah blah blah)

hmmmm its really a toughie, you can either:

(a) come clean and tell your boss
(b) go, say nothing and test out your will power
(c) go, and when if it gets tough say you have the runs and go chill in the jacuzzi :D

Came clean and talked to my boss and lo and behold he was a star!!!!

Still going to jolly but now he knows he will make sure temptation is kept to minimum and will do his best to support me.

First off he will ensure we aint sitting together at meals so no one notices i aint eating :p

He was ace, honesty is THE best policy.

Thx all x
