'Team players' & process servers

"There's no 'I' in team," says the Team Player. "And if you say that again," says the Rational Boss there'll be no 'U' in it either."

Oswald Bastable has some observations on "those who wank on about the virtues of being a 'team player'." And talking of people you really do want to avoid, David Slack remembers his time working as a process server, and therein some tips for avoiding such a person.

Ugh. And I hate the way schools try to train kids to be "team players" by stuffing them in groups with incompetent, lazy kids and then everyone's grade goes down. Of course you can't mention to the teacher that this is why your project sucked cuz that wouldn't be TEAMLIKE!
