now only do it occasionally - perhaps what I need is too difficult for them
or not interesting but to me it has mainly been a waste of time because
after I explain everything to them which takes at least 2 hours of my time
there has been almost no reward. Almost all forget they have volunteered,
and there is no response. It taught me a lot though - its much better to
have paid workers than volunteers. Even for very short needs like twice a
month 2 - 3 hours at our shop or helping with the jumble sale doesn't work
out with volunteers.
