  • Girl Guiding

    Our Girl Guide Pack Leader was moody. If the night didn’t go as she wanted, she would retreat to the stage and give us the cold shoulder treatment. The rest of the evening was spent in silence and we were left just sitting around. If we were all looking forward to a particular night, she would go out of her way to destroy that night. We were reduced to tears, made to march around the hall. One night I took the initiative and ran the night myself. We had a great time, she just sat on the stage and glared at us. Another leader joined and things became better.
