Blogfest - Who's In Charge

Who's In Charge

Blogfest 2012  #4 Hosted by Stuart Fish 

I have taken “charge”, I have been in “charge”, I have called “charge”, and I have asked if I could “charge”.  These different phrases hold differing meanings.  

I have taken “charge”.  I was the Center Manager for a UPS center.  I was responsible for 138 people.  I was responsible for the equitable transfer of work to each individual based on their job training and wage scale.  I was responsible when I took charge.

I have called “charge”.  During certain war games, while urging your co-partners forward, calling charge bolsters the resolve to attain goals and best the other teams. 

Asking if I could charge is an attempt to delay the responsibility of my actions.  Payment later….”I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today” as Wimpy might say. 

Charge holds different meanings based upon the verbiages surrounding it.   Of the three types of charge, I most definitely prefer taking charge. 


  1. Love the post--I also like being in Charge...and I like charging--at people. Okay, Okay--no--that last one was a joke :) You know I didn't see this link before tonight. I'm glad I found it :) Cheers, Jenn

  2. As I watch the Cardinal beat the Nationals, I'm reminded of the old battle cry I heard as a child in Busch Stadium.

    Bum, bum, bum, bum, ba, ba.... CHARGE!
