Attitude Adjustment: The PUG life

So, i like to run PUGs, for many reasons.  One of which being i am not in a huge guild, another being PUGs for the most part can accommodate to my playtime, or lack thereof.  If it comes down to it and life calls, i can drop a pug and not feel guilty, as they will get a replacement quite quickly.  So last night, the wife and I registered for the dungeon finder, and get a group.  Tank runs in with no cc, and after the first group is down, i am at 50% mana (i’m the healer).  So i say, um, don’t believe in cc?   He literally says no.  I am now a sad panda 😦
