Default Being in charge

I don't know what it is but, I always seem to wind up in charge. I'm a mild mannered guy by nature but, it sure sure seems likes I end up giving direction to people. I'm like WTF???

How do I end up in charge all of the time?????

YES!!!! I get this too!!!!

I don't know what it is but people ALWAYS want my opinion on things and I always end up in charge of things that I have ZERO interest in being in charge of.....

I think it's because I speak well and have a deep voice with a lot of inflection and expression so people just listen to me when I have something to say.....

I don't really ask for it. I'm kind of mellow and reserved and would usually rather be told what to do than tell people what to do, but this still happens.....

Maybe that shows that most people like you. Generally, we put those in charge that we like.

Either that, or you are hanging around a bunch of complete imbeciles that can't find their way out of a paper bag.

I'm a quiet man be nature, I guess I wind up in charge at work because I have a lot of experience, I've been in the same industry for 18 yrs.

I'm just not a natural leader, it is just funny because, I always seem to end up in that role. Oh well, there are worse things.

Oh, I guess that's where similarities end.... For me it's everything outside of work and (in case ya'll haven't noticed) I'm not a quiet person....
