But the funny thing is, the secretary[a MOM which I might add >>], was supposed to leave the check at the local tack store.
I never got it. All of the other members going to state did, but I didn't.
So I called up the secretary, leaving a message. Later that night, I got a VERY nasty voicemail from the secretary, saying she left the check there yadayadaya and that the tack store had it.
So the next morning, I had my friend go to pick up the check from the tack store. It wasn't there.
I called the secretary again and she said that it was absolutely there.
I called the tack store and the tack store owner said that it wasn't there.
Finally my family and I gave up, and we went to state, paying for gas with our own money.
Several months later, after state and after I contacted my president, telling him of our predicament...
The secretary just yesterday got in contact with us and honestly bitched me out right before I ran my barrels, asking me all kinds of questions about the check. I ignored her, because I didn't want to get psyched out before my run. She got mad at me for ignoring her and went to my mom, complaining her out instead.
What I don't get is why it is so impossible to simply write us a new check. It disappeared, end of story. Make a new check. It's not like anyone could spend that check on anything anyway since it was addressed to me.
I also believe that a member should be a secretary, NOT a mom who doesn't even have a kid in the rodeo club!
I would even take it up even though I'm horrible at math.
I'm considering quitting the club. As I said before, I joined and worked to have my gas paid for since state is no where close to my home town.
Being in a club shouldn't be this frustrating. Thank you for listening to my trouble.
