15 Word Whine

I busted my tail planning the neighborhood party this weekend. One person said thank you.

If you want, I'll call up my friends and we'll rearrange their lawn ornaments. We used to do that back in our high school days after drinking late at night.

What you fail to realize is that they just figure that's part of your job. And why thank anyone for doing their job?

Pass it off to someone else next time, swoop in and save his/her ass at the last minute, and you'll have a little more gratitude.

Maybe.

I wish you lived in my neighborhood. I attempted to plan one, organized meetings, held them at my house, served home made treats, made signs for the big day. I had a few individuals show interest at the meetings, a couple were happy to send emails informing everyone. The day of the big event... 1 person, ONE!!! showed up, toting her granddaughter, so two I guess, but the granddaughter didn't really live in the neighborhood if you want to be technical. Long story short, I would not only have thanked you, I would have contributed and helped you clean up. You rock!!

I used to do this sort of thing and then I just said F.T.S. Now when I want something fun to happen, I just set up some large brightly colored objects in my front yard, and a couple of tables. The gawker reflex does the rest -- people will stop by, leave and bring back whatever they have, its amazing. Food, chairs, music, grills, horshoes and badminton.
And if you're lucky, beer.
