Girl Guide and Girl Scout Leaders do hard work and we should recognize their effort with badges that they too can work towards throughout the year.
Work colleagues refer to you by your guide leader name
It is hard to be sure how these things happen. Perhaps you got a call at work from a fellow leader and they had to go through reception and ask for you. Maybe they slipped and asked for you by your guiding name instead of by your actual name. Maybe you and another leader or perhaps a parent of one of the girls in your group work in the same office. One way or another your secret identity gets revealed and before you know it, people are calling you Brown Owl at the office.
Lost your phone in the river during a hike
It is so easy to carry a phone with you on a hike, much easier than that big DSLR camera of yours. You can take pictures along the way to share with parents and the girls in your group. Of course it also offers the advantage of being able to call for help when the kid leading the way gets you lost because they don't really know how to use a compass and a topographical map. One of those times you pull out your phone to take pictures - nothing else - you are on a nature hike after all. Then just as you are casting your vote for what dress colour you see, you trip on a tree root and the phone flies out of your hand and into the river alongside the trail.
Forgot to hang food in the tree
Everyone knows that when you are camping, you hang your food pack in a tree so that the bears and badgers and wombats can't sneak up in the night and steal your food. Sometimes things get forgotten. Sometimes you are so exhausted from a full day of hiking and building rope bridges. Sometimes you crawl into your sleeping bag after a rowdy night of camp songs around the fire and drunk on smores that you forget to hang the food. Then you get up in the morning and discover you have nothing left other than juice crystals and graham crackers - not a marshmallow or piece of chocolate to be found.
Wore the same clothes for a week of camp and no one noticed
Sometimes when you are in charge of the logistics for a camp full of kids, you get all the details right for everyone else and forget to pack clothes for yourself. It is a small price to pay for ensuring there is enough toilet paper for everyone. Fortunately everyone gets dirty during camps and everyone is so busy with activities and trying to avoid outhouses, that nobody pays a lot of attention to fashion at these things. Congratulations on making it through the week without a single comment on wearing the same clothes every day for the duration of camp. No point cleaning it, just toss it in the campfire on the way out.
Attracted the most mosquitos at camp
We all know people who attract more mosquitos than the rest of us. We appreciate people like you. Your mosquito magnetism protects the rest of us, unless of course we are standing too close to you and become collateral damage. Please excuse me while I step over here to the other side of the camp fire. You are my hero and I appreciate your role in the ecosystem.
