the overly aggressive girl scout moms who pimp out those damned cookies EVERY WHERE
Both my girls were girl scouts and we did the door to door thing and the site sales. I always told my girls to be polite, not to pressure, and to ALWAYS be respectful of the no. We never had issue with the door to door sales, and would call the other brownies on the block and go as a group so as not to inundate the neighbours. Each girl would take a turn selling her cookies.
But now that the girls get the cookies ahead of time I see moms having the kids sell at high school games, out side the schools at pick up, at parties, etc. Im so discussed with the whole thing.
This is our last year of girl scouts.Answer Question

I kind like that they are sold outside stores and through people at work instead of people coming to my door. I hate the door to door thing, (I am a sucker either way and always buy whatever anyone is selling) but I rather be bothered coming out of a store or at work than while I am at home.

It's suppose to be about the girls selling the cookies NOT THE MOMS seeing how much attention they can get! So that is why I now refuse to buy any and just flat out tell them NO if they are set up some place in public! They love to compete so they can have bragging rights to their so called other Mommy friends! I am happy that there are others that have picked up on this as well!!

We're on an Army Post so the Girl scouts are only selling at two locations and they are very sweet, so no I'm not sick of them. And today is their last day. But I can see how it would get annoying in the situation you're describing.
