I'm just fuming right now...
I'm part of a group with 7 members, all really lovely ladies and we have been a group for 10 years. Over the years a few members have come and gone, but the current members have been steady for the last 5 years. Reading and getting together this past year have been tough, but we did have 2 back yard and two or three skype visits last year.
My issue is the wishy -washy "let's change the meeting to next week since I haven't finished the book' attitude. I am on an afternoon shift and took the evening off work tomorrow in order to join in, since reading is important to me and I love discussing books with the group. I am not taking a vacation day or banked time, this is a day off without pay. Then I get a text after I had already booked the day off (and replacement organized) with above message.
So far 5 members said 'no problem, lets do it next week' when I finally saw the text. I did text back to the group that I had booked the day off to join in, but would send in a report instead. Now I can see there is some back-tracking to see who has finished, etc, but I am not joining into the discussion without seeming petulant.
Honestly, we have one book a month, and the meeting is set for the third Thursday. We came to this decision years ago when there was one member that we were always having to work around because she had so many commitments. I also understand these are tough times and not everyone has the concentration to read. But don't change the meeting the day before!
I'm ticked off at the disorganization. Am I wrong?
by the way, the book is Shuggie Bain which was my pick for the group; I got the recommendation here. I am looking forward to discussing it, so am really disappointed.
