You live a quiet life, and nothing can surprise you anymore. You wish! Do you think you know everything about being a Scout Leader?
Here’s 21 things that proves you’re a Scout Leader when…
You do a very complicated knot to tie your shoe laces
Sarcasm is the first line of defence…
You smell like bacon and campfire on Monday morning at work
Your car is full of stuff that could indicate intentions of murder… rope, tarp, axe, saw and fire starters
Sitting around a campfire is the best feeling- everyone else is in bed and quiet and you’re just watching the fire die down enjoying the quiet
The contents of your car’s boot/back seat is several pairs of walking boots, two roll mats, a first aid kit, a whistle, a couple of footballs, several patches of dried mud etc ….
You are convinced your hair smells of campfire even though you haven’t been near one for 3 months.
Somebody tells you to “just tie it in a bow” and you have to stop yourself scowling.
You have absolutely no comprehension why someone would not want to sit round a campfire roasting marshmallows. I mean . . . what could be better?
You have amassed enough camping equipment to shelter a small army
You wait for camp dates before arranging family holidays.
Buying 20 pumpkins in October seems the normal thing to do.
You can hear young campers’ eyes open at a range of 100 metres at 05:00am.
You start conversations with… “This one time, on Scout camp…”
You don’t have a problem drinking tea either when it’s just boiled or stone cold.
You drink tea out of a jam jar, because you lent your cup to a scout last camp, & even though you got your cup back, it seems a waste to stop using the jar.
Any new vehicle purchase is dependant on whether it has a tow bar fitted or not
You can’t go shopping and at least one time think “I can use that at scouts or would this be suitable for scouts.
All your clothing is scouting related.
You keep teaching people at work campfire songs or wander round singing them and getting odd looks.
