oh i was always picked last in sports.
the times I was put in as leader was usually by adults who didn’t want to do the job so they gave it to me and walked off
Putting an 8th grader in charge of 5th graders at church? because they didn’t have enough adult teachers.
Make a 5th grader a tutor of 3rd graders? because the teachers weren’t tutoring them
Put a 14 year old in full charge of 12 year olds? So the adult scout leaders could slack off. During camping trips they’d drive off – probably to get beer for themselves – had beer on their breath. Twice I remember.
