Bees and hornets

So when you take a hose to a bee's hive you know something BAD is going to come out of it. Tonight I was the bee who got the hose to him. I was madder than a wet hornet.

I am a very nice and giving person most of the time. I will do almost anything for anyone. and today I took off work. 1st mistake. 8 hours worth of pay down the drain. But I took it off to help with the STAKE Relief Society Broadcast Dinner. Here is where the hose get to the bee hive.
I missed a day of work to HELP!!!! I will repeat this over and over and over. I could have worked today.

I was asked to do the flowers for the tables. I had about $200 dollars to do the tables. HERE is where the water hit the hive. they set up 30 tables. I only did 15. NO ONE, NO ONE, NO ONE told me how many tables to do.

What do you say. what do you do. spend more money, drive 30 minutes to get more dish gardens. REALLY what would you do?

SO I went in to help, I saw my old Bishop Hall and was talking to him for a minute and said I was here to help when someone said we have it covered. REALLY, REALLY do you. It was just like I was not to be there. YEAH that is where the WATER hit the HORNET and I got wet. WET and MAD.

I went out of my way to make sure that the 15 planters were there. and then they said they dont need my help and that we had 30 tables... REALLY REALLY..... I think there was a LACK of communation... REALLY

I was a wet hornet ready to dive bomb! I went with the knowledge I had and what they wanted from me. BUT could they have said there was 30 tables. could I have asked how many tables. BUT when you have one email. asking me to do one thing. I do not think that this was how I was to spend my day.

I'm sorry scotty....its really difficult when things like that don't work out at all like we planned, and our efforts are not appreciated.

I think this is what it means to "endure to the end." Keep at it, Scott.

That's how I feel when I don't get what I need, Scott; but just let it go! Love, Tim
