Default My least favorite time of the year

Trying to collect fees for softball. Almost impossible.

My mens team had the least issues. There's always one or two guys who wait until the very last minute. I now tell everyone "I need to know if you're playing this season by the end of the week, if I don't hear from you, I'll go to the next guy waiting." Had minor issues.

With my coed team, 3/4s of the team hasn't got back to me. I've had to basically recast almost the whole team and now have a new generation of people who don't return emails and don't understand what "due date" means.

On my company team, a good portion of the people who wanted to play decided they weren't going to play but didn't think I needed to know. So like a moron I'm sitting here waiting for people to pay me and now it appears we may be short. Deciding if I'm going to cancel this team altogether.

Next year I think I'm just doing one team.

You will need it.

It's hard to get grown men and women to understand what the word "deadline" means.

I just wonder how these people pay their bills. They all must have really awful credit.

Btw, I am heading out for a steak dinner in my new car, buying some $100 per pair jeans, some $400 sunglasses, and buying a bunch of liqueur but you will have to wait for payday since I can't afford $35 right now.

They are just counting on your forgetting about it or mixing it up with those that did pay. With one of our managers I could probably get away with it if these damn principles didn't get in the way.

haha. So true.

Not just in softball but in life.

"What about the goddamned $150 shirt you just bought you were showing me yesterday?"
