Mandatory Volunteering

What is it called when you are told that your are going to volunteer?

Nothing like starting the week out right, with the attitudes of resentment and resistance. The very first email I read this morning told me how I was going to get tomorrow morning off. Good. However, the email also explained that I needed to show up at 8:00 AM tomorrow morning in hard labor attire to volunteer my time at a building project. The email went on to explain what I needed to wear...and where I was going to take a shower after I finished doing the time.

I need someone to explain this volunteer concept to me. Is it something new?

I think "mandatory volunteering" is an oxymoron. Kinda like "quiet children"

Yep, that would have cranked me too, but think of the muscles you'll build swinging that hammer, or shovel, or whatever you'll be swinging.

"Always look on the bright side of your life..."
Now you'll be singing that all day-you're welcome.
