Okay, everyone. Most of you know that I have 8 year old twin boys, in scouts for the first time this year. We have participated in each of the activities so far, and even stepped in as leader for two of the meetings when our leader could not be there for a family emergency. In fact, the leader has been absent for more meetings and events than present due to the family illness that she is dealing with. No complaints from me, I understand that family comes first, and these things happen. What my complaint is, is that her husband is incredibly rude and unfriendly towards me. The final straw for me in this situation was yesterday afternoon at the Pinewood Derby where he looked straight at me and my husband, and did not acknowledge us. Now, I have actually spoken to this man before, once at the Junior Ranger hike, and once when I bumped into him at the mall during the holidays. He does not smile, answers in monotone when you speak to him, and will not really look at you during the "conversation". In the past, I simply attributed it to him being "backwards". However, yesterday, we passed each other in the bathroom hallway at the mall, and I smiled and said hello to him, and he only stared at me with a rude look, then looked away! Now, I am wondering if he is a weirdo, a butthead, or does not like me for some reason. The scout meeting is at the leaders house this Thursday, and I really do not want to go because of her husband. Do I just ignore the man and go, or ask should I mention something to the leader, or should I approach the man directly? I am not comfortable at the thought of going to this man's house, but I feel badly about making the twins miss scouts. Any help? Suggestions? :sad: :crying: Thanks for listening.
