I wanted to go anon on this, but you'd think I was a troll. Do you know any women that dip skoal?

I shit you not, my dd's new girl scout leader dips. She's spitting it out on the ground, in empty soda bottles, etc.

I nearly fell over when I witnessed this at our meeting yesterday. Then I nearly puked. Wtf kind of message is this for these girls? Am I being judgmental? I haven't had a chance to talk with any other mom's yet...don't even know if I should bring it up. I don't want to sound like a judgmental bitch, ya know.

Thoughts?

Don't know what categoryto put this in.....

  • Disgusting. She should at least refrain from using it when she's around the troop.

    It's gross when anyone does it, but in a position of authority and leadership she needs to lead by example.

  • Lol Prissy! I told my mother and she said its no difference then the last scout leader that smoked. She kinda has a point....maybe but the leader never smoked around the girls,...that I know of.

  • Ughhh..I hate that and I hate when people talk to me with it in their mouth or just their breath in general. I did know a few women in the navy who dipped. Gagging at the memory.
