Eight Ways To Avoid Being Asked To Volunteer At School

It happens every year. Your kids’ school needs volunteers and somehow someway you always get sucked in to doing so much more than you mean to.  It’s just that you have so much trouble saying no! Well, stop being a pussy! The people who do the organizing can smell your fear of confrontation and need to please from a country mile and if you don’t do something about it,  you will find yourself heading up the annual giving committee, personally snapping every yearbook photo, answering phones in the office and bringing home  the class pets. And that will just be Monday.  Don’t worry, as usual, I’ve got a solution. Here are eight ways to avoid even being asked, let alone forced to volunteer.
