What To Do

A dilemma presented itself to me at our district OA dinner last week
and I hope someone out there can give me some advise.
When waiting for dinner, a topic of conversation among some of the
boys was how many place settings they had from various OA trips. In
the center of the conversation was one of the OA advisors. He seemed
to be having fun talking about this topic. Later, when desert was
served, he stated that he didn't have any glasses like these and sure
would like some.
I am sure the advisor was kidding, but I really feel his involvement
in this discussion supported the acts. Maybe I am way off base, but
I feel this is theft and totally inappropriate for the boys to be
joking about and even more inappropriate for an adult advisor to be
laughing and joking about. I am sure his last comment was made in
fun....but what an example.
What should I do. It seems that when I have brought up issues like
this in the past it only let to problems for me....scouts don't want
to hear it. Any advise???
