Tuesday Trifles

Happy 14th Birthday, #1 Son! It seems like just yesterday you were a tiny tidbit in my arms. Now, you are a tall, dark, and handsome 8th grader. You've come a long way, baby!!

In other news:

The Ladybug has resigned her post as newsletter editor of the Newcomers' Club! I got a call from Da President yesterday. She informed me that my duties had changed - basically she told me that I was to type the newsletter and send it to her to be edited. She would then send it to Iggy to be made into a PDF and then Iggy would send it out. I told her I had to think about whether or not I would continue doing the newsletter. I thought about it - very briefly - I am nobody's typist!!

I wrote the following letter (with Mr. Bug's help):

To the Members of The Board,

This afternoon I received a call from Da President informing me of a major change in the newsletter publishing process approved at the last Board meeting. Based on these new rules and regulations, I find that the position of Editor has been significantly diminished. Since is this is not what I signed up for, I am compelled to resign effective immediately.

I heard from a couple of members shortly after I sent it. They were not surprised. They told me that the board meeting I'd missed last week was horrendous and that I would have walked out. They are probably correct. Now I don't have to go to the board meetings, but I can. :-) I just might show up at the next one. I have nothing to lose and I can speak my mind. Da President would poop a brick! It might be fun!

So, who is doing the newsletter? Hmm... well, I got this from Da President:

I AM VERY SAD TO LOOSE Ladybug AS NEWSLETTER EDITOR. I KNOW WE ALL APPRECIATED HER HARD WORK AND EFFORT IN PREPARING AND SENDING THE NEWSLETTER OUT FOR US AND WILL MISS HER AT THE BOARD MEETINGS.

SINCE Ladybug's RESIGNATION IS IMMEDIATE PLEASE SEND ME THIS MONTH'S ARTICLES AND I WILL COMPILE THE INFORMATION FOR THE NEWSLETTER THIS MONTH. I WILL SEND THE NEWSLETTER TO IGGY TO CONVERT IT TO THE PDF FORMAT AND WE WILL SEND IT BY E-MAIL AS PLANNED. OCTOBER 25TH IS THE DEADLINE.

Ladybug, I HOPE TO SEE YOU AT MANY OF THE NEWCOMERS ACTIVITIES!

THANK YOU,

DA PRESIDENT

Yes, there is a typo. She is NOT perfect as she claims! Hahahaha! (She said I'm loose! Loose does not equal Lose.) Yes, she types in all caps. Yes, I've told her that when you do that you are yelling. She cares not. It's all about her, you know...

Did you notice that she will be doing the newsletter? Hmmm... do you think that's what she really wanted anyway? She's a total control freak! I'll be sending her notes regarding her typos, thankyouverymuch!

I'm all done. Ahhh... it is a good thing.

Have a good day!

Well done! Its such a good feeling to let go of an anchor eh? I bet they'll ultimately be kicking themselves. You rock Ladybug!

OMG..... Is there absolutely nothing worse than an unpaid volunteer job with a total control freak who is anal retentive to boot??? The answer to that job is, "I quit" and you said it so eloquently! Congratulations!

maybe it's the way that you edited the letter, but it seems to me that DA President wants you to still type the newsletter so she can edit it...just like she wanted, even though you quit.

I sincerely hope that isn't the case. I'm glad that you finally found your inner b, (saw your post on Suburban Turmoil).

I think you did the right thing - sometimes it is just time to say enough is enough!

Hope you have a great day!
