For those of you who don't know I am the Guild Master and the Raid Leader of my guild, Three Score. Although I find it hard to believe that you read my blog and don't know this, but that is beside the point. Anyways, once a month I am not on for a raid and to deal with general guild stuff. Now I have officers that I trust, and no doubt in their abilities to take care of things for a night. Sometimes when I am gone things go perfectly everyone shows up and does their thing without a hitch. Other times things happen like last night. People find a way to pick a fight over the stupid and most retarded things possible. Things they would never think about doing if I was around.
Now this gets me thinking. Do they not do these things because they respect me, because they are scared, or just the need to be an asshat when I am not there. Now if they are scared that is really not what I want my guild members to think towards me. Now if they respect me I would think they should respect those I put in charge when I am not there. I have been doing this for a long time, but honestly need a way to break this substitute teacher attitude that comes out.
Maybe it is sort of an accomplishment that I am everybody's glue. I don't expect anyone to be me when I am not there, but I do expect people to act the same as they do when I am. I am also curious if this is an isolated thing with my guild or if it is something which happens all around. Is it actually that it is a Tale of Two Guilds.
