what would you do?

At our Roundtable this month, I wore the uniform with several mistakes in it.
I wanted to see 1.) if anyone noticed 2.) if they would feel "acutally" say
anything to me.
Well, I hadn't been there 10 minutes before a few people starting asking
"What's up with the uniform?", or "What's wrong with your shirt?".
It led into a pretty good discussion about service stars, about boy awards
being *boy* awards.
This month at our pack inspection (which I emphasize, no one fails, I know
you're proud and I want to help you wear your uniform to look even *more*
sharp, etc..) an adult scouter, was wearing red tabs. Every year (for three
years), I tell him he is in Cub Scouts. Every year, he grins at me and says
he knows. He is an Eagle Scout and has done well with his den. Besides,
with those red tabs, I can find him pretty easily at a crowded pack meeting.
I do want people to correct me if I'm wrong. No, I don't want to be
embarrassed, but I would like to be right in what I do.
I would probably have said something to the adult scouter if I could find
her at some break. If she acted like she knew, I'd change the subject
quick. Am I the uniform police? No, I don't think so. *I* did not correct
any of the people who had the World Friendship patch on. That one always
seems to end up every place on the left side of the shirt, but at least
it's on the correct side!
