As the "unofficial section leader", I'm supposed to distribute parts for a song for a while until my band director selects parts for people. As this process can take a while, I'm often caught in the middle of arguments over who gets what part. I do my best to be fair but inevitably upset someone. Help?

After you remind everyone that your assignments are likely to be temporary, just do your best and accept that some will be unhappy. It goes with the territory.

I remind them that it's temporary and they still argue with each other. What do you mean when you say "It goes with the territory."?

Basically, someone is bound to be upset every time. It happens no matter what.
