Re: Rather sad

My experience was that most MGs were great to work with and be around.
The latin names don't make me think of snooty. It is other behavior. I
understand about closing down your nursery; you may feel differently
once you've had some time off. I have had three years in a row of
medical problems that have cut out my ability to volunteer for MG work.
:( missing those I worked with. Right now, I still have to get help to
keep my gardens under control so am not able to do much but give advice
and plants to neighbors. Maybe some day, I'll be back into it. Have you
thought about working with Junior Master Gardeners?

This is just me, not indicative of anything else... 

I took my MG training in1999 and started in immediately before the course 
was done on several projects. So it's been 10 yrs. I've met some lovely 
people as well as some who like to stir up trouble. I might seem a little 
snooty because I use Latin names and because I've always had a lot I needed 
to get done and I have little patience for someone who volunteers and then 
walks around gabbing for 4 hours doing absolutely nothing. 

I was actually, secretly glad to close down the nursery. I was tired of 
begging, cajoling people to work. I will miss it, but not all the hassles. 
So I suppose I could do something else there, contribute in some other way - 
But I just no longer feel like it. I'm tired of manipulators, backstabbers, 
two-faced truth-benders, lazy slobs, whiners, and those people who 
"volunteer", but think it's just a social thing. And I'd like to get 
something done at home for a change. 

I'll probably find a way to turn in minimum hours to keep my certification, 
but otherwise, I'm taking a breather.
