The Pathology of Mandatory Fun

Your article ("Can We Stop Having Fun Yet?" Digital Dispatch, May 15) hit a chord.

You touched on one of the formative factors driving the "need" to have fun--employees' age. I see another--company size. At a small company, "fun happens." As it grows it loses that intimacy and management starts planning fun.

Planning fun. It's like making an appointment to have sex with your husband. I don't get it.
