Walk Your Talk or Shut Up


If you know me, then you know I own my words and don't say anything I don't mean. I will also not leave you hanging either. Nothing bothers me more than someone who runs their mouth and gives nothing but empty promises, then runs their mouth again like no one noticed that you dropped every ball you were holding.

What is wrong with being honest? Is it that hard to be honest? Maybe it has nothing to do with honesty and everything to do with self confidence. It could simply be you want to be what you can't be and you don't know how to deal with it, so you lie.

What's pissing me off so much?? My son's Cub Scout leader! No it's not earth shaking or that important in the grand scheme of things, but it does get old having to deal with his lack of follow through. He pestered my husband to step down (after 7 years) so he could be leader. For what? He schedules zero meeting, unless you count the ones he attempts to throw together without warning the day he gets the bug up his ass to have one. He is a no show for most of the important things and we are losing scouts because of his attitude regarding his poor performance.

He left me hanging tonight, looking unprepared ( I was, because he doesn't communicate) and stupid at the pack meeting tonight. My son's den had responsiblities tonight and we failed. If this wasn't such a reoccuring thing, then I would be less upset. Now I plan your demise. I don't have time to fit that in my hectic life, but I guess I can shift a few things to make room. It shall be quick and clean, which you won't understand or appreciate since you are so slow and messy. Consider it your parting gift.

I feel better.

Oh, I hate people like that. I bet it's a confidence issue though - he needs to have a position of leadership or authority to make himself feel important, but sadly doesn't have what it takes to make a success of it. Sad really ...

Can't you smack him or something? You don't even need to explain it - it's not like he would understand why anyway.
