Ping pong

There's a ping pong table at work. I'm pretty bad at ping pong but I played some at school because one of my grad school colleagues was super into it and would no shit every week browbeat us into going. That being said, I don't take ping pong seriously but it's a load of fun to just dick around with.

I see a good amount of people at working taking ping pong quite seriously. Like fairly good technique and such. Stuff I couldn't dream of pulling off with any success.

But a lot of the time what happens is they'll be playing, with some skill, and someone does this outrageous slam. Most of the time it goes way off the table or into the net or some other bad outcome. And yet I see this all the time as I'm going to the break room to get my lunch or water. Again and again.

Competent.
Overconfident.

Why?
