Cut the cancer in your team.

Ten years abroad leaves you with a big gap of what's going on back home. I left Canada 3 months after the Y2K flop and came back weeks after the Vancouver 2010 olympics. There's a lot in between there to miss. One thing I totally missed was the birth of the reality show. They are everywhere. Some are fantastic some not so much. After 10 years of Nihon Televison I'm kind of bingeing on English T.V.

I've already professed my love for Til Debt Do U$ Part and I've grown to like the Millionaire Matchmaker because that lady's insight into the millionaires is amazing. I stumbled across one called Salon Takeover for the first time the other day.

Some Chicago salon was in danger of closing the stylists with the help of Tabatha Coffey. The show I watched the team really pulled together and made huge changes but one stylist. She fought it every which way. She swore, backstabbed and threw tantrums. Why? She had worked there five years and had some commitment to the salon. Her co-workers called her a cancer in the team.

I hazard it's her Upper Limit Problem or maybe she's one of the crabs in the barrel trying to keep the escapees down. Whatever it was she was let go and left in tears.

Like it or not these people can be in your team and I mean at work or at home. They are the first to say "It can't be done!" and do everything in their power to make sure it isn't - maybe sub-consciously. I've seen it in action and luckily have gotten rid of a lot of the "crabs" in my life but it's not over yet they always manage to come back!
