What’s the point?

I was over on a message board I lurk on (because it’s just not worth my time to post there. The train wrecks are all lovey lovey with each other, and don’t see the flaws in their own plans 90% of the time, even in hindsight.), and I read a post all about one parent who sent her child to Boy Scout Camp.

The first thing she said is “Yes, I broke the rules and sent him with a cell phone and he called me from his tent crying that he wants to come home.”

 

Yeah, right. Here is a parent knowingly breaking the rules and then posting that the leaders are doing NOTHING to help her child. Can’t she truly see her child is WORKING HER?  You send your child with a cell phone, text him (as she also admitted in a later post) and tell him how much you miss him and expect him NOT to call crying?

 

WHAT IS THE POINT OF YOU SENDING YOUR CHILD TO CAMP IF YOU ARE ONLY GOING TO BREAK THE RULES YOURSELF AND BLAME THE CAMP FOR THE CONSEQUENCES?

 

Seriously.

    Blargh.

    I was IM’ing with one of my former CITs who remembers showing up at the staff tent in the middle of the night because they had mice in their tent. Apparently I looked up, said “guess you should get rid of the candy, huh?” and went back to sleep.

    If she didn’t trust those leaders with her child’s safety, why did she send him? And if she doesn’t think he’s getting the help he needs, why not go get him??

    Idiots.
