Okay. I have two things on my mind.
1. It took me almost three hours to get home from work today!!!!!! I left work at 3:50, and arrived at my house at 6:36. WTF. It’s snowing, and people were driving like morons, but there are a million traffic lights between here and school, so it was a mess. THREE HOURS!!! NPR started repeating itself!!!
2. This is serious. I’ve been the fundraising chair for the rugby team for the past year, and to be honest I did a crap job. I tried — no one on the team was interested in helping…so I sort of gave up. It’s a two year position, and this Sunday they’re going to do a vote of “no confidence” for me. I’m supposed to go to the meeting, but I don’t want to go. I have no desire to continue in the position, and am hoping they’ll vote me out. But…should I send a resignation letter? Or just let it slide? It will have no impact on my future except for being friends with some of the people on the team…but honestly, I only liked a few of them, and kinda had a crush on one girl…so it’s probably best I don’t pursue those friendships. =)

Traffic: Wow, that’s insane.
Regarding the Rugby thing, I would try to make as graceful an exit as possible. It’s one thing to suck at something (it happens) but it’s another to look generally unreliable. I suggest that you talk to whoever is in charge (coach or captain or whoever is hosting the meeting) and express that you know you sucked at the job and you’ll cooperatively step down, and as him/her how to do so.

@peachacid: I think I would write a resignation letter. If it has no impact on your future, I guess it doesn’t really matter but I would feel better about quitting than being fired.

@peachacid: Send in a resignation letter. It keeps them from having to have an awkward vote.

E-mail the resignation letter.
BTW… sorry you had to deal with this traffic. It took Mr. LK 90 minutes to do his normal 35 minute drive. But that’s still better than the day it took him 9 hours to get from his old office in Foggy Bottom to our old house in Columbia. 9 hours. He literally walked the last 1.5 miles to get home.

I think the club rules say a vote has to take place regardless. I really want to write in the letter, “Due to members’ lack of interest in the success of this club”…but I won’t. UGH. I really shouldn’t have accepted the nomination in the first place.

@lovekiss: There is this one hill right before our road, and I thought I wasn’t going to make it up. My tires were like, “FUCK this, we’re DONE!” I was going to leave my car on the side of the road and walk. But then…my tires were like, “DON’T LEAVE US!!!” so I kept driving.
It was nuts. Really the problem was that at every intersection people were going even when the light was yellow and there was nowhere to go. So they were blocking the intersection…it was a nightmare.

@peachacid: I agree with sending a letter and skipping the meeting. But I wouldn’t put blame around. I’d say something like, “This hasn’t worked out and I think it’s in everyone’s best interest if I step down…”.
