I never buy anything from people come up to my door, but it's really hard to say no to kids selling girls scout cookies.
Do you also tell people you can't answer the door because your mom is in the shower?this might seem sort of obivious, but
can you not answer the door?
I never answer the door for anyone unless I know them. No point in coming to my dwelling for any other reason.
nothing good comes from strangers knocking on your door. think about it.Do you also tell people you can't answer the door because your mom is in the shower?
These kids don't come to my door. I have bought them from the market. Each year I get a box of thin mints and a box of those coconut carmel delightful yummies. To me those are the only two worth buying as the shortbreads can be had from Walker's at the same premium.
As a former girl scout I can't really say one way or another if I was offended when people didn't buy them. I wanted that cheap ass prize they offered for selling the most and my parents were always there to help me get it.
Here in Canada a box of Girl Scout cookies costs $4. Of that, I assume a fair chunk has to go toward paying for the cookies themselves, and a chunk to subsidize the cost of the prizes the kids are going for as motivation to sell the cookies. I don't have any figures, but I would hope that the Scouting organization itself would get at least 25% to 40%. I'd be interested to see if anyone has actual numbers.I can't recall the exact amount, but the money that actually goes to the Girl Scouts from one box of cookies sold is shamefully minuscule.
I'm proud to be un-American then. I usually ask the girls if they're being fairly compensated for their time and effort in pushing over priced cookies. The usual answer is they get nothing!Refusing to buy Girl Scout cookies in un-American. Just sayin'.
