Hopefully, you are never in a position where such an option appears the only solution. In the meantime keep the personal remarks out of what is a somewhat emotional thread.
what personal remarks?
yes, I think a grown man who got upset and left the team because a few of his teammates pulled an innocent prank on him is enough for me to call it a hissy fit.
I think he thought you were telling me to grow up, but i didnt take it that way, so no harm no foul. But you are seriously downplaying the chain of events that lead to Martin leaving the team. It was not one cafeteria prank gone bad. Put yourself in his shoes. You go through this stuff for over a year, it hasnt gotten better, it has progressively gotten worse, but you still show up to work and attempt to eat with you teammates. Putting myself into Martins shoes i could easily see why the cafeteria prank was the last straw for Martin.
