Giving back. It’s something we should all do. Money, time, whatever.
I volunteer for a variety of things, but mostly my kids’ school related stuff. Volunteering makes me feel good. Warms the cockles of my heart, though I’m not sure what a cockle is, exactly.
I’m a can do kind of gal. Give me a job, any project, and not only will it get done, I’ll take it to the next level. Ratchet it up a notch. Ok, maybe 10 notches.
But without the drama. It will just get done.
So here’s the problem – once you show your stuff, you are toast. You make it look too easy, so clearly you need more to do.
The General: ” Hey, you seem to have that Food Bank project under control, how’s about heading up the March Fundraiser?”
Me: “What about Marjorie?”
The General: “Well, Marjorie is in charge of the Teacher Box Identification Progam. She already has soooo much on her plate. (Yeah, running that label maker can be a real drain.)
Me: (Thinking) “Marjorie is an idiot. All she does is whine and moan. ”
Bingo! So who’s the idiot?
So to hell with the cockles. Less efficiency, more bitchin’ and moanin’. Thanks Marjorie. You are the smart one.
