I just got off the phone with the incoming president of a board I've been on.
Dig the past tense, baby. Because when she said "I hope this doesn't mean you're thinking of resigning from the board," I felt it was my cue to say "Actually, it does."
So I launched into my departure speech, where the phrase "I don't believe in rewarding bad behavior" came up. Also something about the meetings being "tedious," the organization's general director being "socially inept," and the past-president being a "depressed and depressing burn-out case."
And now I can cross that organization off my to-do list. Yay me!
