His team likes to laugh so they came up with a game that allowed words or phrases to be banned by the team and then use of those words/phrases cost the individual a one dollar fine. The process is pretty simple – individuals present the word/phrase and the team votes. New words are added an others are taken off the list. As he told me the stories the joy was overflowing. I was laughing uncontrollably.
So far, here are a sample of the words that have been banned: brutal, very nice, baby, and whatever.
Any other simple ways to create a little laughter in the workplace?
