The Blame Game

It started with a Post-It Note:

Things Not Megan's Fault:
1. ?

Chris thought it was hilarious. He stuck it up next to my name card, and all the passersby either saw it on their own or else Chris pointed it out to them.

Then Kurt put together a spreadsheet of all the things that needed to get changed. When he was finished he thought about the Post It and he added a column to the spreadsheet: Blame. Notice that he didn't say it was anyone's fault, just that he was blaming one specific person for each thing.

And can you guess whose name went into each and every column? Yep. Mine. Then he made sure that everyone saw and commented on the column. He said it was "calling a spade a spade." Bah!
