Some People Seek Power for All the Wrong Reasons

Here is the transcript of an IM conversation between my wife and me. Edited portions are bracketed in parentheses and italicized.

wife 5/4/2007 11:29:31 AM) : (our older daughter) is still in a mood.
me (5/4/2007 11:29:39 AM) : What set her off?
wife (5/4/2007 11:34:36 AM): i want (well sort of) to go to the mall to see if applebees, fridays, etc will give donation but I am not sure if i want to go with (our older daughter)
me (5/4/2007 11:35:11 AM): Do you not have enough prizes for the (preschool co-op fundraiser)?
wife (5/4/2007 11:35:17 AM): i don't know what set her off
wife (5/4/2007 11:35:28 AM): we have a decent amount. i just wanted more
me (5/4/2007 11:35:58 AM): Look at it from this standpoint...
me (5/4/2007 11:36:53 AM): Would getting donations from any of those places result in an elevation of proceeds from the fundraiser itself? That is, do you think you would get more raffle tickets or higher attendance if you did?
wife (5/4/2007 11:37:14 AM): no i was just hoping to win more
me (5/4/2007 11:37:28 AM): Ah.
