That IS rude. What do you think they meant by it?

It was a little cheeky and maybe rude. However the use of the word enjoyment in the context of work when many people are just there to earn a living might have been a bit annoying to this person.

I don't understand and I don't like to speculate. I hate when people say things like that. It could be 2 things, a positive or negative statement. If it's uncertain, typically people view comments in a negative perspective. Even if it wasn't.

You should ask, what do you mean by that? It's good when working in a group to mesh evenly. You don't want to overachieve or underachieve in a group setting. Great teamwork is when everyone pulls their weight evenly.
