I Had To Hand It To Him

There once was a guy named Kenny who was a forklift driver who worked for me at Coca-Cola back in the day when I was in management. He was a being a little bit combative and uncooperative and so I had no choice but to hit him with that age old line... You know, Kenny. There's no 'I' in TEAM." There was a short pause and then he responded quite emphatically. "You know, there's no WE in team either!" I had to hand it to him. He was right.

I just used an old saying. He made a new one for me. I think he won.

In his own way, yes. He gave me a pause and I had to rethink everything.

@sharon6345 He definitely did not get in trouble with me that day. It was just too good of a line for me to get mad about it.

That was a witty comeback that you probably wish you had a respond to but didn't.

If that's a true story, Kenny's pretty sharp.

It's a narcissistic world out there, few people care what the others are or could be doing, they just want to get paid preferably for doing as little as possible. If you find people that really care about others they're usually volunteers for some worthy cause or another

ROFL! Good one! My favorite comeback for that is, "Yes, but there is in Winning Team" :~)
