When you realize half of the people who filled in their online contribution forms wrote things like “ninja” and “businessman” for their occupations.

When your fundraiser drops off a huge stack of checks...

When your reconciliation is unexpectedly off by $11.92.

When you correct some discrepancies and it's still off by $3.98.

Now it's somehow off by $1.73. You start wonder if this is the right career for you.

When it’s April 9th and [insert candidate, board member, or top fundraiser name here] hands you a check he/she found in a jacket pocket from an event back in March.
