Well i’m just not sure what to do… It’s 1:00 AM Friday morning and I’m sitting in my cube at work. I was given a large project Monday morning and was told it had to be completed the following Monday by 5:00. I mean HAD to be completed. DUE. SUBMITTED by 5:00 PM sharp in complete, final form or else don’t bother… So I’ve been working overtime all week trying to get it done by the end of the week, but it’s not gonna happen.
So it looks like I’ll have to work over the weekend.
But wait! I’ve already committed myself to go camping with the Scouts Friday night. and Mel and I and some friends had plans to go camping again Saturday night! eek! I can’t do all three. If I go on both campouts I will for sure not have the project done Monday by 5:00 and then work peeps will be very angry.
So which campout do I drop? I feel like I’m more obligated to show up to the scout campout, but I also feel completely unnecessary there as well. There will probably be 4-5 boys and probably as many adults, so the scout campout will hardly suffer without my presence. But it also seems pretty selfish to work through the scout campout so I can go camping with my wife instead. Of course, I happen to like my wife a lot more than I like the scouts and would rather spend time with her than scouts anyday.
What would you do? Does it make a difference if you knew that “camping with the scouts” is actually “sleeping in tents in a backyard in a very affluent part of the cities?”
