Are You Here to Help or Complain About Helping?
I was reading on social media about someone complaining about a charity event where she volunteered to help, where it cost her $40 for gas, and she charged them for her raw materials (balloons), and had to walk across the street to use a rest room. “Never again,” she says, as do many others chiming in on such cruel abuses!
If you’re going to volunteer for anything, be prepared to spend money; to persevere no matter what the environment; and inure yourself to the fact that you won’t be treated like the Queen of England (or, perhaps, even the Court Jester). And consider what it would be like to be one of the people in need of that charity, gratefully being helped by it.
These self-absorbed complaints are a sign of the times. They’re the people who trip over their own two feet and want to sue the shoe company.
