I am a long-time member of a bowling league. The long-time secretary/treasurer is leaving after this season to take a well-deserved break (she's been doing it for 15 years straight). The owner of the bowling alley asked me yesterday if I would be willing to take over as secretary/treasurer next season. I said yes.
I came home and was excited to tell hubby about it and he expressed disappointment that I had accepted it without first discussing it with him. It's an elected position but with the owner nominating me, I'm pretty much a shoo-in. It really only involves collecting money from league members each week and turning it in before I've left for the evening and running a short introductory meeting at the beginning of the season and a closing/payout meeting at the end of the season. It won't take any time away from my family obligations at all.
Would you have told the owner you needed to discuss it with your spouse before accepting? Honestly it didn't even cross my mind to do so!
