I helped her with that as much as I could before rushing off to Scout meeting, because I had promised to bring my video projector. Turned out that the Scout who was doing the video had brought his own projector. There were several Scout families there: the Scout had evaporated when he hit high school, and now that he was six months from his 18th birthday he was back to 'finish up' his Eagle. All the years we needed our older Scouts, and they were nowhere, and now they want us to put in extra hours to help them make their Eagles, and once they get them, they will never be seen again.
I decided to go home before I punched out the next parent who wanted the next three evenings and two weekends of my life so Biffy can 'earn' his Eagle. If Biffy had EARNED his Eagle, he wouldn't have been AWOL for three years. The next "I haven't seen you in so long!" smile was going to go home crosswise, so I came home instead.
Not my best day.
