You Just Can't Win Them All

Jobs are funny.  No matter what you do, or how well you do it, there will always be someone that won't like it.  I met this woman today.

I was at the grocery store and saw one of the students from my school.  She came up to me, said hi, and introduced me to her mom.  We talked for a minute or two, and then the student asked about a Scholarship Prep Night I am hosting later this week.  At this point, her mother chimed in.

"I'm not going to sit through another hour that is a waste of time."

Supposedly the Scholarship Night I hosted in January had been a waste of time.  Tell that to the seniors I worked with this year, who followed my "boring" advice.  They were awarded a total of $390,899 in scholarships.  I responded.

"I'm sorry you feel it is a waste of an hour to help your daughter with her future.  What I have to say is important, and I'm sorry you feel differently." 

I turned and walked away, because you just can't win them all.
