I have only two more concession stands for this school year - whew... I had a Booster meeting and sort of lost my temper. I am sick and tired of listening to parents boo hoo and whine about how busy they are and how they just can't donate three freakin hours of their time - YET - they complain when there is no money in the budget for their child to get the swanky-do warm-ups provided by the school (for example). HELLO? Where do you think the money comes from?
I had surgery last Wednesday - supposed to have bed rest for five days. Saturday - bright and early - I am opening the stupid stand for an all day basketball tourney. I check the cashbox on Sunday - $400. What??? Did they give food away??? We didn't even come close to covering the stock! Monday - the nichols/turpin family is working the stand by ourselves - we cleared $500 in 4 hours. Tuesday - I'm working completely alone and grab whatever students I can snag as they leave practices - we clear $350 in 3 hours. Kiel even played on Tuesday and I didn't get to watch since no parents volunteered AGAIN!
So I was a bit bitter on Wednesday night for the meeting. Coaches want money - parents want money - but no one wants to put forth effort to make the money. Concessions tonight and Friday night. And after my temper tantrum, I do have some help both nights!
They are just forcing me to be a giant b*tch...
Anyway - Friday is the last one untill next school year!!! My back will be soooo happy!
