Time for a little humor?

I've been reading everyones thoughts on ADD and want to share what
happened last night at our Troop Meeting. We have one scout Jeff
who is on medication for ADD or something. I do know he has a terrible
temper. All the other leaders had gone upstairs to discuss a major
problem and left me in charge. No problem just 10 minutes left.
Had our closing and I told the boys I would see them next week as
everyone else is leaving I noticed two brothers in the corner
yelling at each other. Of course one was Jeff. I make my way
over to them again say time to go boys. Older brother is yelling
time to go Jeff, and Jeff starts laughing. Older brother is near
tears, yelling lets go and Jeff just keeps sitting there laughing.
Again I say time to go and Jeff finally stops laughing long enough
to say I can't. Sure enough he couldn't. He had tied his legs
together with his neckerchief scarf. He starts laughing and I join
in. So now 2 of us are laughing and older brother is still yelling.
Older brother could not get the knots undone so I started to work
on them finally after 5 minutes of working on them (both of us
laughing and older brother still yelling) I have him free. I
put his scarf around his neck telling him it looks better there and
that he would win first place in a knot tying contest. As we are
leaving he looks at me and says "do you know what else they do in
old cowboy movies" after I replied no he says "they hit each other
over the head with chairs!!"
Boy am I glad he chose to tie his own legs together I don't think
I could have handled the bar room scene.
