It is so hard for me to wrap my head around someone that would do this to those girls. How do they sleep? As far as the council not taking checks, wow, that would really make things difficult for me. But I understand why they're doing it. I know several women who have written bad checks to the council. One of those things that makes you scratch your head and go, hum...... :-(

My Council does not accept personal checks anymore (and neither does my troop). If a parent decides to accept a check they must cash it and give cash (or money order) to the troop.

I want to get to a healthy weight and stay there forever. I don't have to make huge changes all at once, just small ones consistently.

Makes me wonder why the adult in charge took the bill if it looked and felt wrong. I remember when I owned a gift shop I had one of those special pens that marked black on a bad bill. I think I got it at Staples for a couple of bucks.
Another reminder to have check made payable to your Council rather than to your troop. That way you have the Council on your side if you get a bad check. (At least that's how we do it in Vermont)

That is absolutely disgusting! I can't imagine what goes through these people's minds. It makes you not want to accept anything above 50.

I am having my first booth sale tomorrow. Do you grt this kind of money often?

Always be yourself -because the people who mind don't matter, and the people who matter don't mind. :)

Love ya!

Tiffany
