Farmyard antics the last straw

I really love my job, but the endless “team-building events” that our new boss makes us undertake are really wearing me down.

I don’t mind problem-solving exercises, the odd game or telling stories, but I find forced “oddball antics” (as our boss calls it) unbearable.

Two weeks ago we all had to dress up as a farm animal and explain why it “aligned with one of our company values”. It was just about the last straw. Should I move to a more mundane but less “whacky” place of work?
