If you are in this situation...to get even or not?

I knew a person who had a sorry experience with her organization. After their election of officers she was not happy of the chosen one, the elected president approached her and asked her to be the treasurer and this was an appointed position. Naturally, she refused but upon the president's persuasion and for the sake of unity she agreed. But weeks before the oath taking the president approached her again withdrawing his offer. He said his council outvoted his choice. She survived the insult after much prayer. But now it's oath taking time and guess what? The president has not yet found a willing treasurer from the members. Would you believe he had the nerve to ask her again? If you were in her situation, would you still accept the offer again?

If her name was outvoted at the first time, I'm sure she will have a hard time getting along and working well in the future if she accepts his offer. No, I'd rather refuse, not because I want to take revenge, but because I know I would not want to be under any president who is so hopeless. If we want to gain experience and knowledge, we should be working under a strong leader.

The president seems so powerless. He make a decision only to get outvoted. And since his council already outvoted his choice, thus won't he be slapping his own face if he approached her again. Anyway, I won't accept if I were her. Cos in the very first place, she already wasn't keen in taking the position but due to the "persuasion" of the "powerless" president then she agreed. But he retracted his offer. How will one find trust in working with such a person whom has no integrity in making decision? My two cents of thoughts
