I think that "team player" is used in the work environment to avoid competition between employees. They're just trying to convince everyone to work together, as a team, rather than competing against each other. :)


One of the reasons I was removed from my position last year was because I was not a "team player." Essentially, I provide Government oversight for the safety of the Naval Self-Defense Weapon System I am assigned. I had identified some safety requirements that my system was not meeting. Since I would not sweep this fact under the rug like the Program Office people wanted me to, I was let go.

Then didn't they give you two conflicting sets of instructions? I don't understand how anyone could manage safety while at the same time keeping things unsafe. And why wouldn't they want to fix the errors?

Might want to think twice about sitting on it or it might get angry and scratch you.

"""Might want to think twice about sitting on it or it might get angry and scratch you.""

Everytime i walk by a paw slams into my leg :)
She`s 8 years old and acts more and more
like a kitten. Never scratches me, just grabs
and hits :) she`s a very funny cat, and a lonely
child, her mother got one kitten! thats not usual.
And she`s a mom, she has a son that lives on a
boat and travel the oceans :) he loves the water

Very playful cat, it is interesting knowing that animals can have so interesting personality.
