4. Thanks, pinboy. See my suggestion above.
Sometimes I think we "love" people too much in one respect, and we aren't really helping her as I know from personal experience that she hates making these errors. A course that I had designed for a study group and worked very hard to pull together, requiring hours of research for a subject dear to my heart, has probably been wrecked due to her mis-entry in the course catalog, scheduling it for the wrong dates. But this was not the first episode, it was after several that I know about, leading to other volunteer's being upset and worried.

A similar experience of my husband's on a local Democratic Ward was pretty upsetting to the other Ward members a few years back. In that instance, the volunteer eventually had to go into the Special Care Unit in Assisted Living for elderly people with dementia, a very sad outcome...
