Uh, Girl Scouts, Isn’t This Form a Little Harsh?
December 23, 2014
This is the form handed out at the troop my friend sends her daughter to:
Girl Scouts may only be released to persons authorized for their care. It is necessary as a parent/guardian of a Girl Scout to complete this form and return it to the responsible Girl Scout adult before or at the time of the next Girl Scout meeting. As the parent/guardian of the minor noted below, you are responsible for her transportation to and from her Girl Scout activities or the bus when a trip is involved. This should be done in a timely manner. If a girl is not picked up within 15 minutes after the end of a program, a phone call will be made to the girl’s emergency contact number. After 30 minutes, the police will be called and the child will be reported as abandoned.
Hmm. I was a Scout and remember the oath:
The Girl Scout Promise
On my honor, I will try: To serve God and my country, To help people at all times, And to live by the Girl Scout Law.
But I guess helping people at all times stops after half an hour. – L.
