They have struck again. Those ladies who decide for everyone else. Forcing gift giving where ever they go. They who don't participate themselves. Yes, a milestone birthday has arrived for one in our group. I overheard the conversation of two of them deciding what to do. Expensive speciality cake? Check. "Forced" chipping in? Check. Mandatory group meeting to "decide" what to do? Check.
I don't mind participating, I've said it before. What I mind is the forcing. What I mind is announcing the decided plan, then asking for input, as an afterthought.
I need a chill pill on a daily basis with these women.
