The Leadership Role

The leadership role at my Youth unit has been opened up.  I have requested an application form.

I am probably mad for even considering taking on such a big role while still doing my degree.  I’ve already led a unit once, I’m also probably mad for wanting to do it again.

Oh yes, and by applying for the role, I feeling like I’m stabbing one of my friends, NurseryMan, in the back.  Which is always good.

So now, I have the application form sitting in my inbox.  I’ll be honest, I haven’t even looked at it yet.  I don’t have very long to fill it out, in fact I only have until the end of the week.  I suspect that if I applied, and didn’t completely cock-up the form, I’ll get the position (assuming someone better doesn’t come along, I’ve been pretty much told this).  Our bosses are not overly pleased with how NurseryMan is doing the job.  To be honest, neither am I.

More importantly, it looks like he might not be applying.  So, if I apply, I won’t be betraying him, not really, right?

Somehow, my conscience doesn’t quite see it that way.

Arrggghh!  I thought deciding to apply was supposed to be the easy bit…

About The WalkingPlasterDispenser

So who is the Walking Plaster Dispenser? Well, I'm a volunteer First Aider, working with a well-known First Aid charity to help out random people I've never met before (or, more usually, when) they hurt themselves. This typically involves walking briskly (never run...) around after people who are silly enough to do sports or some other suitably daft activity in their free time. In my spare time, I am a graduate engineer, working my way through a graduate scheme with a big engineering company.
