Ooh more in the spirit of evening threads I have an AITA question and poll!!
At work we have a ping pong table and it’s become very popular. When there are more than 4 people playing we play this run around the table game where you have 3 lives and lose a life each time you lose a point. I’m extremely bad at the basics of it BUT a good portion of the shots I successfully hit are winners - powerful smashes, usually diagonal.
Despite being literally the worst player (I am usually first out), my ‘ruthless’ approach to hitting shots has caused some of my colleagues - who I consider to be friends - to moan loads and accuse me of ruining the game. I’m not consciously making a decision to hit those shots, it’s just an instinct thing. And half the time I don’t even hit the table anyway!!
I’m fairly sure I know the answer but I want the validation… AITA?
- Yes, you should not play a competitive format in an instinctively competitive way
- No, your colleagues need to get better not bitter
