I had a....

slight verbal altercation with Garrin's soccer coach this morning.
Seriously.  He had it comin'.

Couple things.
Don't tell the kids to arrive at the soccer field on game day - 1/2 hour before the game
if you don't plan on getting your ass there until 5 minutes before the game.
On the day you DO get there "on time", don't talk and text on your cell phone and ignore
the kids that actually did show up to play, until 5 minutes before the game.  You could
have just stayed home, come late, and NOT pissed me off watching you.
Don't ask Garrin "Is your Dad here."  Be a man, and come over to me yourself,
and ask me.  He is five and I don't bite.  Unless you already knew that by that time, you'd ticked me
off big time.  Don't say "defense", "offense", "pass the ball to your teammate", assuming
that 5 year olds already know what those things mean, since you havent' even broached
those subjects or concepts at practice.  They have no idea what you are talking about. 
Oh and speaking of practice, nice job
sending your equally unorganized assistant coach to fill in for you, and asking US if we
brought our goals......so you could borrow them, because apparently it's not on your list
of bring along items WHEN YOU VOLUNTEERED TO BE THE COACH.
And good job with the one liner email saying "I won't be at practice but the assistant will be and we
will be on the opposite field of whatever one we were on last week."  Which pretty
much left all the parents, picking up chairs and gear to move all around the fields,
once someone from the league showed up to let us know we are usually on the wrong field
and pointed us in the direction of the correct one.  And I won't even talk about the snack
schedule, or shall I say LACK OF.  Perfect for you going on what you said was the word of
my husband, who was not present to defend himself, that WE were on for snacks this week.
Which was a lie.  I was already getting up out of my chair to head toward you to
"discuss" the LACK OF COMMUNICATION about the snacks, when you muttered -
"Well your husband didn't have very nice things to say about me.........."
Really?  Because I am pretty confident that he was only stating facts.
YOU ARE UNORGANIZED.
THE KIDS GET OUT ON THE FIELD AND ARE RUNNING AROUND IN SWARMS
BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO DIRECTION.
ALL YOU CARE ABOUT IS YOUR KID SCORING GOALS.
Period.
Don't dog my husband when he is not there.
You brought out the bitch in me, buddy.
Truth hurts - hence your apology to me later......

We paid good money.
We have no problem entrusting our kids into the hand of a coach.
One who cares and commits.
One who volunteers his time for ALL kids present.
One who would have the best support system of parents who
care, if he actually got off his goddamn cell phone
and communicated with us.
I know I would help out what ever way needed,
and am pretty sure everyone else would too.
