Scoutaholic
 

You might be a Scoutaholic if:

You have stayed up through the entire night preparing for a scouting activity to be held the next morning.

There are ten or more merit badges that you have instructed so many times that you have all your supplies and materials ready to teach them at a moments notice, and you have the requirements memorized for all of them.

The only t-shirts in your drawer have camp or scouting logos on them.

You change into your uniform in the car because you don't have time to go back up to your office, and you have to go straight to a scouting meeting, or you wear your uniform to work all day.

You say 'The Hill', 'Gilwell', or 'Philmont' without mentioning cities, states, or countries and you expect everyone to know what you are talking about.

You know what SM, ASM, CM, MC, DL, MBC, SPL, ASPL, PL, APL, DC, JASM, VC, TC, SL, TG, PLC, RT, VH, WB, YPT, BALOO, OLS, COH, BOR, POR, and ESLSP all stand for.

You've actually said things like, "It's OK I'm an Eagle Scout", or "I know what I'm doing, I'm an Eagle Scout".

Directions to your 'house' include phrases like: 'Turn off the pavement at milepost 27', 'just after the 3rd stream crossing', 'leave your car at the trailhead', 'past the waterfall', 'around the lake', 'Under the oak tree', ...

You know every dent and ding in your car, and you know on which dirt-road the dent/ding was acquired. You can even remember which dirt-road each of your mismatched hubcaps came from.

You are 4th on a waiting list for the state to issue the 'SCT MSTR' or 'SCOUTER' license plate, and you know all three people who are ahead of you on the list.
