Another great idea: A Lady Scouter told me her daughter needed some patches
on her uniform, and didn't mention it until ten minutes before the meeting.
The mother grabbed a stapler and put the patches on the uniform. When the
meeting was over she stitched around the patches and removed the staples. It
worked so well that she does all of them that way now.
I never could get those darn pins in without moving the patches. ;^)
My first Sargent used to hand out promotions after work at 4:00 pm. If the
new stripes were not on your Class A uniform when you went to retreat at 6:00
pm, he made a point of asking you, in front of the whole company, if you
really wanted the promotion. Most of us took the hint and had them on ASAP,
we dod not take them home for mother to sew on.
