The kids band has a great opportunity to play in NYC. It's not a cheap trip, since they are staying overnight. So they are fundraising. Doing the same successful one as last year - put the word out that if parents had another idea or want to head up more than this one to raise their hands....no one & that's fine - not everyone has time or desire.
I spent the last 2 days getting my ass chewed out because - a parent didn't read the paperwork and was unhappy.
Hello?! not my fault they didn't read it. It was sent home with the kid and emailed to all parents. So I'm the bad guy? I didn't make the rules, school business office did. I'm just trying to help out so lots if kids can go.
Never yell at a volunteer - we won't always stick around to help your kids out when you won't/can't/don't do it yourself. Especially if you aren't willing to help unless yours is a beneficiary.
