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.


OCD: If this is rediculous, what was it the first time?

I don't know, but it pales in comparison to sales supremecy. : )

Girl Scout cookies became forbidden at our house when we "learned" that the group has separate merit badges for having and performing abortions (in addition to the one for being a lesbian), and that the cookies are actually made from communist fetal tissue. (only partly kidding... http://gawker.com/5887002/politician-girl-scouts-sell-cookie... )

So, yes, I just buy a few from co-workers to enjoy at work and help their kid out. It's low-key, though... almost always just a signup form on the fridge in the break room, and I don't ask them to chip in when my kid's doing some crappy fundraiser.

-n8 (like now, for example. Anyone want a $25 "Holiday Wreath"? Didn't think so.)
