How every race organiser feels

Aaaaaaah hahahahahaaha. Hilarious.

The best part "I thought I had honorary lifetime club membership."

It could do without the swearing - doesn't add anything to the humor, but this is great.

Painfully familiar. I work in theatre and I have been in pretty much the exact conversation on many occasions, though it must be said I thought rather than spoke.

"I'll let you know fifteen minutes before the start." Hilariously, dreadfully familiar.

This is excellent - I had it emailed to me last week, well done for posting it Sproket!
...."No problem,I always do my bit for the Club"...

It reminds me of a race I was lead car driver at - and as a matter of courtesy I called a 'Club Member' who had volunteered to marshal a corner to let him know that we were 2 miles from him.
He sounded rather out of breath and stressed but said "ok" and promptly hung up. Moments later he overtook me (having overtaken the bunch & cavalcade!) .... But he was at the corner before the race!
