Ok, the most recent advertising agenda by the Girl Scouts has me really shaking my head at the hypocrisy. This started with a billboard in my area that says something like 'i learn a lifetime of experiences from selling cookies'.I can't find that exact billboard on line, but I did find a news article that says this.."The Girl Scout cookie box is getting a major makeover — for the first time in more than a dozen years — to better tell the story of what girls learn from selling cookies."http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/11/business/media/girl-scouts...I can't remember the last time I actually bought a box of cookies from a Girl Scout. I can definitely say that the last few times I did actually buy a box, it was at work or out of an ice cream display at supermarket.So...what are girls learning from selling cookies?-- My mother will sell my cookies for me-- I won't have to do anything to sell cookies because my mom does the book keeping too-- I will get all the kudos for work I never didThat's what I see. Maybe there are some kids out there actually selling, but I can tell you they are the EXTREME minority and they are most likely losing out in the 'battle for sales supremecy' within the troops.This is rediculous.
