Scoutaholic
 

You might be a Scoutaholic if:

You need a new truck, with an extended cab and a full size bed so you can carry the scouts and the gear. (Oh, and maybe occasionally use it for your family.)

Your first priority when reading your email is the scouting emails, you have a special email folder for filing your scouting emails, and/or after reading a scouting email you mark it as 'unread' to remind you to come back and read it again.

You've spent years going to every training weekend they offer, but still spend 3 weekends a month doing leadership training.

Your computer is used mostly for a) scout advancement tracking software, b) scout finances, c) writing your scout unit newsletter, d) visiting the council website, and/or e) visiting Scoutaholic.com

Every time you go to the scout shop you a) answer another customers question, b) spend at least $30, c) tell the shop staff where to find something, and/or d) take at least 30 minutes to browse the same shelf you memorized last time you were in.

You spend more time doing scout paperwork, than balancing your checkbook.

You know the birthdays of everyone in your scout troop, but can't remember your mother-in-laws birthday.

You ignore the family newsletter when it arrives, but you read the Scouting magazine and/or Boys Life cover-to-cover every month.

Monthly Pack meeting conflicts with your weekly troop meeting, and you have to decide which to attend. After all, you are in charge of both.

You know the council and scout shop staff on a first name basis.
