Wow this thread is old! LOL.

But I will take the time to note that few things irk me as much as the misnomer 'Webelo' used in reference to a single Scout who should, in fact, be called a 'Webelos Scout." There is no such thing as a 'Webelo!'

Drives me bonkers every time I hear it. Enough to keep it in my signature, lol. 🤪

Inaction.  I am throwing around in my head if a "Scout is Kind" if I message our Den Leaders and ask then to video fogging a mirror so I can see if they are still alive.  🤬

Reading 3 pages of a thread only to realize I'd commented on it 17 years ago.  Since my comment, my MIL has passed, and my wife has lost her 50 year old brother and 52 year old sister to smoking.  Tobacco kills hundreds of thousands per year, yet we shut down the country and destroy the economy over a virus.

"The Good Idea Fairy" (TGIF)

TGIF: "We really oughta do this idea I have!"

Me: "That's a great idea!  Get started, and let us know if you need any help or funds to make it happen!"

TGIF: "Oh, I don't really have time to do that.  I was just suggesting it for the Troop to do.  But it would be easy, and a great thing to do!"

Me: 👿

@InquisitiveScouter , I'm laughing out loud.

Prospective Parent: Is ___ in your crew?

Me: Yes, ___ is our CC.

Parent: Then my kids aren't joining it!

Me: Well, would you like to be CC?

Parent: No!!!!!!

Me to Myself: (Dodged a bullet with that one.)

Smug, condescending scouters.  It's one of the biggest reasons I don't like camporees.  That and the troops at camporees who decide cooking breakfast in their troop starts at 4:30am.
