You Can't Please Everybody
There is an old saying out there that says something about no good deed goes unpunished. That certainly has felt true today.
Each year, we provide a really nice meal for the faculty (at no cost to them). Since my husband has a catering service, I've been able to get him to sell us the food at cost and donate his time to cook, set up, serve, and clean. We don't have a lot of money in this hellish economy so our options are limited.
For the same price, I could serve the faculty sub sandwiches or chicken nuggets with chips instead of the fancier menu of chicken cordon bleu, garlic mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls, tea, and raspberry trifle.
Today, I received an anonymous complaint about the school using my husband's catering service.
Is it wrong of me to want to just cancel the whole damn luncheon?
