I had some dreams ... they were klowns in my koffee.

(With apologies to Carly Simon)

This is my journey through job transition from a toxic environment to a better life. Join me for a few thoughts and a few laughs along the way.
What are "klowns in my koffee"? They are the factors large and small that make you less than you are. A "klown" can be a grossly incompetent boss,
a short-sighted policy or a moronic coworker. They won't kill you, at least not immediately, but they abrade the soul
as you scrape past them to get through the day. Sometimes it's best to dump them out of the cup.


Day 201 - Scout Badges

Daily Kup (My Life as a Volunteer)
As a momentary break from the endless housepainting project, I worked on preparing for Saturday's first Daisy Girl Scout meeting, As a break from that, I attended the monthly Cub Scout pack meeting where parents were trained on "youth protection." Youth protection is basically a set of rules to be followed to make it less likely that some perv scoutmaster is going to molest your child. Or, other side of the coin, that some kid isn't going to make up a lie and ruin an adult's life.

I'm glad that the Boy Scouts are facing this head on. It starts to walk the talk when the parents are trained along with the leaders. As an odd coincidence, I sent in my Girl Scout background check information today. It's a rare day when multiple groups want to verify that I'm not dangerous.
