(I’m training a new volunteer, explaining everything she needs to know about the clothing tents.)

Me: “Try to keep everything presentable, image is crucial. The clothes are all old, but look much nicer if they are folded instead of lying in heaps.”

Volunteer: “Are you sure that’s necessary? In clothing stores, I never fold anything, that’s what the people working there are getting paid for!”

Me: “You are aware that in this scenario both of us are the salespeople cleaning up after a person like you?”

Volunteer: “That’s no fun at all! You need to have more fun things to do for volunteers!”

(She played a potted plant for the rest of the afternoon, while I worked two tents at the same time.)
