Where is my Prize?

We people do love to join contest because of those tempting and wonderful prizes.  Prizes boost our confidence to win and grab those prizes for us to have.  As an effort being appreciated for joining games, prizes is there.  It is like a package deal, when there is games then there is prizes.  Who will want to join games without prizes?

Last night we are having our high school reunion.  It was good because many are participating and give some of their time to be there.  They are collecting some contributions for the prizes in games.  Games makes everybody awake and enjoy.  And because of those contributions, all are excited to join and win.  One of my friends won, she was so happy because she will getting a reward.  To her surprised, when the party is almost over there is no prizes been given.  She was asking for it because that is her right as they won the games.  I can see it in her eyes that she really mean it.  She wants her and her group efforts being rewarded.  No matter how noisy she is telling everybody where is their prize, no one listens to her.  Where did the contributions go?  I am so sad for her because their efforts go for nothing.  Someone said it is for fun.  If it is for fun, they should not have collecting contributions for the prizes.  I try to calm her down to the point of grabbing my dress down.  I understand that she is a little drunk, but her mind is fully awake.  She wanted her prizes badly. 

Where did the contributions go?  Where is their word of honor?  Are they credible enough if ever they will be conducting games again?  I just wish that the organizer of the event/games knows and understand what they are saying.  I am not angry, just upset because of the trust issue and the promised.  Promises are made to be broken as they say, but those promise need not to be broken because everybody knows there is prizes for games.  And everyone deserves to be rewarded after the effort.  God bless everyone!

    There may have been a misunderstanding but it is the fault of the organizing committee if there was one. They should have explained fully that the contest were just for fun and no prizes were at stake. But if they announced that there were indeed prizes for the contests, they should dutifully give the prizes to the winners. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.
