Here’s a shocker for you: sometimes life ain’t fair. Sometimes your best laid plans are not gonna work out, and all of your hard work will be ignored. Sometimes you’re the windshield, and sometimes you’re the bug.

I had one of those weeks, just last week.  A combination of disrespect, petty behaviour, chintziness and general meanspiritedness made what should have been a fun volunteer experience into something more akin to a shift at a Chinese iPhone factory. Ok, clearly not quite as gruelling, but I approached each of the three days with a similar feeling of dread and fear.
