Word of the Day: Voluntold

Voluntold refers to those moments when someone is “assigned” a project due to their absence or by a supervisor to their subordinate. Voluntolding someone is an easy solution to a recruiting problem but it is often frustrating to be on the other end of a voluntolding situation. Voluntolding is also a great way to “punish” someone for not attending or leaving a meeting early.

  1. Ahhh…but maybe the punishment was needed! lol

    And by the way, I’ve assigned you the task of selecting my student ministry model for the fall. And I’ll need a 10 page report containing the pros and cons of that model.

    And you should cut my grass.

    Wow…voluntolding is fun!
