Recalcitrant parents at DS Saturday Sport
I have a little dilemma concerning my DS's sport matches on Saturday mornings.
The game he plays is cricket, so there are 12 boys, and associated parents. My issue is with scoring, as I am the one that usually scores, with another mum. This is quite an arduous procedure, as the game goes for 3 hours, and every ball has to be recorded, so it is very draining, and easy to get distracted.
My beef is that when I mention that perhaps other people should do the scoring occasionally, every parent seems to come up with an excuse, as to why they cant.
I would like some creative solution to this situation, so I can sit back and watch the game,( or even stay at home in bed ! )and share the scoring with other parents. I am getting increasingly annoyed about this predicament, and feel that the scoring load needs to shared around.
BTW my DH coaches the team.
Lots of suggestions so I can implement them on Saturday, would be GREATLY appreciated.
