This is the whole reason I’ve never understood the whole obsession with girls wanting to be in the Boy Scouts.
Girl Scouts teaches you how to make mad bank.
@I Are Lebo, Because it's a disgusting organization that cares more about making money than teaching people practical skills besides how to shill a product. I say this as a former girl scout who made records in my area.
@Papyru, I didn't make any records but I sure as heck stood outside in the cold selling them to MAYBE earn enough for the troop to go on a trip to a water park? Meanwhile me asking if we could learn shooting or at least the archery GS allow(or anything actually scouty or fun) was met with "No"
@Nekozombie, To be fair it wasn't hard to make local records around here, but yeah, they threatened to shut down our troop multiple times because we weren't making enough sales, and we'd only be a few boxes off. We paid our dues and everything, but they don't care about anything but money. I didn't understand why girls wanted to be in boy scouts until I was in girl scouts
@Papyru, Yeah my troop leader(or whatever she's called
I didn't stay long once I realized the fun stuff we did do was few and far between.) was an obese woman in a wheel chair, so I guess I shouldn't have expected as much. Plus her daughter was queen bee so if you weren't in her clique it sucked even more(I was in the clique and it still sucked bawls)
@I Are Lebo, they get taught how to be door to door sales men and future housewives that sell tupperware door to door. Lol not really but they arent nearly as cool as boy scouts in terms of the outdoorsy stuff.
@Papyru, from everything that I’ve heard about Girl Scouts, all you have to do to succeed is surrender your soul and submit to the Dark Lord Satan.
And then sell him cookies.
@Runnin with scissors, I did door to door sales for a while as an adult, and I genuinely don’t think there’s a more unpleasant occupation. You get treated like shït while working like a dog, you make terrible money (yet there’s always somehow someone else there who is raking in the cash), and when the weather gets bad the job is just miserable.
@I Are Lebo, I’ve heard his favorites are the Dosidos
@Papyru, as the brother of a Girl Scout who made more sells than the whole Girl Scout group/unit whatever they are I can honestly say fvck skills those cookies are great
@I Are Lebo, and that's how so many get caught up in pyramid schemes
@I Are Lebo, I mean its more of training them to be part of mlms
@Papyru, if you think about it from a business standpoint it's basically free child labor. Whoever runs the scouts is probably mad rich
@Anonymous3301, Hard disagree, they're no better than the generic alternative/Keebler versions. The Benton's brand thin mints are better imo. There's almost no mint in the original.
@Anonymous3301, as someone who realized this long ago, compare GS cookies to the Keebler Elves stuff on store shelves. The difference is negligible for taste, and a lot less expensive off the shelf
So in other words; all highly successful saleswomen is former Girl Scouts?
Girl scouts of America teaching at a young age that women will be exploited.
@ThePandaPool , it's more amazing the girl scouts don't have their own knife fighting ring.
I’ve watched a man buy all the thin mints at a stand outside a Walmart.
@BigJohnson86, I was hoping not to be seen cheating on my diet. You caught me at a weak moment.
One of my professors has a daughter that has become my drug deal- I mean -s’more dealer
Girl Scouts is a corrupt and gross organization and the generic (Benton's) cookies are better. I said what I said.
Girl Scouts selling cookies are contributing to the delinquency of adults
