  • Make her make payments, that should help.

    We see this all the time, they never have money for the important things, but they have money for smokes, beers, tattoos, fake nails $$, People are just spoil, and they want everyone else to pay.

  • I can't believe she asked for it to be waived, if she can't afford the fee why not make it in payments?

  • It doesn't cost $50 to join cub scouts. The registration fee was raised in 2009, from $10 per calendar year to $15 per calendar year.

  • Our Reg fee has been $50 for the last few years... wonder if we are talking about 2 different things... to top it off this woman did nothing to help her son do popcorn sales which that money really helps the pack! GRRRRRR

  • It is frustrating when someone tried to play the poor me card. Did you tell someone in charge what her real situation is?
