I need some advice on how to handle a situation with my boss.
I work in our business development group which consists of 4 men and me. We have a fall meeting every year, and it was suggested that we do a physical activity that will count towards the fitness challenge we are doing at the office. (I started the fitness challenge back in January).
My boss suggests that we do a 90 mile bike ride, collecting donations for every mile our team does. In his email he says..."Jennifer can be the driver and drive along the trail next to us. Unless she wants to ride with us...but it is 90 miles".
So, first he points out that I'm not as fit as the rest of them, and therefore wouldn't be able to do the ride. Secondly, he basically alienates me from our team.
I want to stand up for myself and say something to him. But I don't know how to address it. Am I over-reacting? Anyone have any thoughts on how to address this with him?”
