I am a volunteer-er.
I just am.
I raise my hand.
I host political get togethers.
I donate stuff.
I say I'm not going to, and then I do. I end up in the girl's classroom, on the PTA, running programs, organizing events for attorneys, being a big part of the community.
Usually, I'm o.k. with it. Usually, I like that feeling of giving and helping.
I have, however, had enough.
I got stuck putting together what I consider the most stupid-ass stupid bullshit stupid thing in the world. Something that I think is a massive waste of time and energy. Something that is pointless and egregiously annoying - the end of the school year party.
I got stuck because no one stepped up to chair this. And because I am a person who picks up when others are slacking, I am CONSTANTLY getting emails like this:
"Yeah, I said I'd help, but it looks like you've got it under control, and I'm busy, and there are plenty of other people who will help, and maybe I could do something, but you seem to have it under control, so I'll just not do anything. Ok? Great."
And what I want to reply is:
"Listen you stupid fucking twat, not that I want your help because obviously you are completely fucking useless and should be hidden away so that your douchiness doesn't cause some kind of black hole of fuckitude and suck the world inside out, but DO NOT offer to help and then say you are TOO BUSY to help. EVERYONE IS TOO BUSY, you fucking cunt bag! EVERYONE! I AM! But I'm doing this, because I SAID I WOULD. TWAT!"
God. What is WRONG with people? How are they so fucking self-involved that they think an email telling me that they are too important to do something they said they'd do would be fine?
I fucking hate people. I swear to god. I really, really do.
But not you. I LOVE you.
