Sorry Schmunkee

A little post for some Schmunkee love whilst I'm eating my sandwich....

I know sometimes people think she's a bit brusque but when you're trying to juggle a job, children, a life and your voluntary roles you sometimes feel a bit stretched.  This means that your soft skills can drop to the wayside and you become more instructional in your requests.  That doesn't mean you're not still lovely and fluffy underneath, it just means you're busy and you're trying to get stuff done as quickly and efficiently as possible.

A big thanks for doing this job, I know it's really hard work.

To reinforce re Mouse's comment...
Having coordinated kit orders myself, I know how much time this takes bearing in mind it's a voluntary role.  When I did it, there was no way near as many people ordering kit as there are now and not as many kit items being ordered. Schmunks has streamlined the process to make sure everyone is updated with what's going on, what's expected etc and to make it easier to coordinate a large order.
I am on the order list and I have seen the emails Schmunks has been sending, if they seem brusque its only in terms of explaining a clear process.  In each email she provides the spreadsheet as well as link to to it on dropbox. From what I can see, she is trying to give people the tools to help themselves rather than having to hand-hold people all the way through, I really can't see why some people can't follow the clear instructions that she gives.   

In the past its not been uncommon for Schumks to end up having to chase people and respond to questions across 4/5 types of media, this can cause misunderstandings to happen, this is exactly what Schmunks wants to avoid and why assertive instructions could seem blunt.  Individually you may think a one off facebook post or text message isn’t significant but its often many people thinking like that, from Schmunks side, these well intentioned (yet multiple) messages can cause difficulties.


Please remember this is being done on a voluntary basis and so speed and efficiency is key; yes, you may get a one sentence reply to an e-mail, but that's because there is no doubt another 10 people wanting an email response.
As has been mentioned many times, you have asked for kit and therefore you should be keeping an eye on progress.  I know she can be an old dragon and can nag but she does it because she cares about the kit order and wants to ensure no-one misses out on the kit they want. 
Remember, she is doing this for your benefit, so it's only fair to try and lighten her load by using the information she gives to help yourself.

Thank you

Though I have to say, that is the cuuuuuuutest dragon I have ever seen.

A fantastic response to yesterday's email with 12 further people paying.  Thank you very much

This is a 3rd and final reminder for the 19 people remaining

 The people in the screen dump above are in danger of falling from the kit order if payment and sizing is not forthcoming by the end of tomorrow.
