A couple of officials are talking at an association meeting. "Did you hear about
Chuck?" says one. "He's going to state."
"You've got to be kidding me," complains the other. " That guy is worthless."
"You're telling me? You should have seen him work the south game last week.
Meanwhile, Chuck ambles up to join the conversation. "Hi fellas. What's new?"
"We heard about your state assignment," comes the reply. "Congratulations, pal.
You deserveit, buddy!"
You'll see infighting in lots of different ways. Guys will get the cold shoulder for
no good reason. It might mean nitpicking on small things or it could mean petty
arguments over something insignificant.
You can want the same successes a fellow offical enjoys, but it's something else
entirely ─ to want it and resent your colleague for having it. Sure, you can be
disappointed, but when you turn that disappointment into hostility toward others
you've crossed the line.
