Two Roads For The Old-Timer
The founders of many groups ultimately divide into two classes known in A.A. slang as “elder statesmen” and “bleeding deacons.” The elder statesmen sees the wisdom of the group’s decision to run itself and holds no resentment over his reduced status.

The bleeding deacon is just as surely convinced that the group cannot get along without him. He constantly connives for re-election to office and continues to be consumed with self-pity.
