I don't like parents that force themselves into their kids sports (I'm an expert, I have to coach...), I went through my son's many years of football, soccer & wrestling in the stands watching. I also have two daughters, I have never forced myself into any of their activities either.
One is in 8th grade and in Ski Club all of middle school, I have signed up for chaperone and never called. last year I asked someone I know that has been to every one; why haven't I been called, he responded "They like to see someone who is available for all trips" - which I am.
I have signed up for every trip, he goes to all, I never get called.
Can't say anything or I'll get the lecture "Complaining only takes away from your child's experience".
The bottom of sign-up form reads in bold "Don't assume you are automatically a chaperone". WTF DOES THAT MEAN????????
It's to late now, she is on her last trip right now.
1. Cry like a baby to myself and do nothing.
2. Smear the program of arrogant jerks.
3. Egg that mother f...ers house.
