A Minor Rant…

I like Girl Scout cookies and even though they are pricey buying them has always had a “feel good” factor involved because you know you are helping a decent organization.

However, I have been getting miffed of late and I have now instituted a firm new policy.

From now on I will ONLY buy Girl Scout Cookies from real live Girl Scouts!

No more will I buy from parents of Girl Scouts in the office. I mean a big part of the Girl Scouts selling cookies was to get them out there and off their butts and SELL. Do something! Earn something! It’s not supposed to be about Mommy and Daddy running yet another errand for baby darling while she watches TV.

Nope, I hereby vow that I will never turn down an actual Girl Scout but at the same time I will never again buy from parents of Girls Scouts. (if their parents are just escorting them, watching over them that is fine)

I also believe that if you really care about Girl Scouts that you should make the same vow as well.

Thus concludes Rob's bizarre rant of the day. :)

I'm with you brother. I only buy them from the girls that make the effort to set up in front of Walmart. We don't get much door to door sales out here in the boondocks.

I only eat the kind that are made with real Girl Scouts.

Rant away. I have a sign by my front door that says no soliciting unless you're selling girl scout cookies. Do you know how pissed off I am if I get someone selling something other than cookies??

Jinksto- Well if they were *really* dedicated they would work the boonies! :)

Maria- So do real GS cookies taste like chicken or pork? Inquiring minds, ya know?

Tammy- Ooooooo I LOVE that sign!
