    Not how it will be presented. And you know it.

    From Kreton's POV, the "need" is for him to retain his position so he can get a good recommendation from the city when he applies for a paid coaching position.

    I think what Sangha is saying is that if his goal is to succeed in coaching then whether this woman is right or wrong is immaterial. He just needs to deal with her in a way that protects himself from any further damage and, possibly, changes her mind about him. If I've got that more or less correct then Sangha is 100% correct in his recommendation. Kreton is in a situation he can't win so his best option is to simply survive long enough that the bitch gets bored and goes on to find another fight.

    The poor kid. She'll never be able to have a fun stress free activity if this is how her parents approach everything she does. What a selfish bitch to make this event about her instead of her daughter. You did nothing wrong dude. Don't sweat it.

    Fair enough. It has the potential to be a no-win situation then.

    Aside from the notion that this is a no-win situation, Luther was correct

    Kreton now has the opportunity, thanks to this woman, to demonstrate to the city that he's the kind of person who can deal with a difficult parent.

    And that is what is so galling about these situations. Obviously the lesbian couple came into the activity with the intention of making a political statement and looking for a fight. To use their 'daughter' in this manner is hateful, repugnant, cruel, and should be acceptable to nobody, most especially the gay and lesbian community. But is it a lose lose situation for the targeted person who just wants everybody to have a good time and who wants politics to be left out of it? The way the courts have been ruling lately, probably. And that is a damn shame for everybody concerned.

    my regard for the city/park & rec staff is almost as low as that held for the lesbian couple, based on the account provided
    he was sandbagged
    the city scheduled a meeting with him without advising that the lesbian couple would be there to confront him
    they made him apologize. for what remains unclear
    they rewarded the couple with free participation fees for multiple sports, giving the distinct appearance that something was owed to the couple
    and then, when the woman wanted to become the coach of the team, they made her the assistant to the fellow she reported for wrongdoing when there was no wrongdoing

    after three years, the coach has earned his letter of good standing. he should stand there while they wrote and signed it and not let the door hit his ass on the way out

    fortunately, for his daughter, and the other kids he coaches, he is more level than i and will continue to put up with such bull****

    To (hopefully) avoid a lawsuit, I'm sure.

    You did the right thing and try to bring as many of the other parents with you as possible to back up your story of the woman being way out of line.

    Sound like she is looking for a payday using her daughter. That is a scumbag move for sure.
