In the last two weeks we have been overrun with Girl Scouts selling these boxes of cookies. I’m telling you, I’ve shelled out over $30 in support of the Girl Scouts. But no mater how much I buy, the next day there is a whole new batch of girls in front of my local store. Now they are even in front of the video store. Not only that, but my doorbell rings every night with some neighborhood kid selling cookies. Then at work, my co-workers bring in boxes to sell from their own kids. I just got on the scale, I’VE GAINED 4 POUNDS!!!! I’ve got a tennis tournament in two weeks! These girls are ruining my game! My garbage can is full of empty cookie boxes!
Does anyone out there have creative ways to avoid the “Cookie Monsters” in front of the stores? My first try failed miserably; I tossed a tennis ball ahead of me as I was leaving the store. I figured the girls would be distracted long enough for me to “slide” on past.
WRONG. They stopped me in the parking lot to return the ball and requested I buy a box of Samoas cookies as a reward. What could I do? Another $3 donation.

Help me, Help me.

Robert,

There was a "Johnny Bravo" cartoon about this very topic. In the end there was no escaping them. Sorry, you are doomed. Of course some players (like Agassi) play as least as well if not sometimes better when slightly over weight and out of shape.

At the elementary school where I teach, I hate fund raisers. Guess who gets asked by every current and former student to buy candy bars, cookies, wrapping paper etc etc etc etc. . . . . . AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!! But then again, I would rather see kids selling cookies that other stuff. And, it's for a good cause. Unfortunatly, my body chemistry is changing in my old age(?) and I cant have extra sweets anymore. Blood sugar problems really stink! But it makes a good excuse not to buy Girl Scout Cookies.

I was at Lowe's this past weekend and ended up buying two boxes of the mint cookies(my favorites). By the time I got home(20 minutes in mall traffic to go 2 miles) I had gone through an entire package(1/2 the box) by myself. This was on Saturday, those cookies are long gone, I think I finished them on my way to school this morning. Good thing I never gain weight. Forever stuck at 160.

Resistance is futile!
Actually, whenever kids are trying to sell stuff (cookies, band candy, whatever), that I don't want, or already have a closet full of, I'll sometimes just ask them if they'll accept a donation. I'll give them a dollar, or so. Not gonna break the bank, even if the kid just stuffs it in his pocket and spends it. (But I'm *really* not that cynical.)

56,

Mu-ah-ha-ha-ha (Sinister laugh)... I used to be able to say the same thing just a year ago. Cherish that trait while you have it.

56,

The last time I weighed 160, I was 13 years old. My right leg probably weighs 120. Constant battle.

It's evil, it really is. The put those sweet little girls up there in front of the stores, asking you to buy cookies all nice and sweet and ****. It's like they are going to cry if you don't buy their cookies. Who wouldn't cave in? Those girls could sell a ketchup popsicle to a guy in a white tuxedo.

Girl scouts with their cookies are just like the women they will become. You have to be strong and learn to say NO because that is what they will be saying to all those single men out there when they get out of school!

As a matter of fact, you don't have to be single to experience the no part from a woman. I know all you married guys have heard that word more than once....a day. LOL!

WT III--Wasn't it Agassi that married (briefly) Brooke Shields? How did a guy like him get a girl like her? (And what was that thing between Julia Roberts and that weird looking guy?)

Cooter--Join the diabetic club. Yes. It's a b****.

Drew--I hate you! (Just kidding. I'd love to be stuck at 160! Actually, anything under 240 would be nice! )

BENGAL4--I feel your pain!

b_b_a_d--It's 6am and I've already heard that today!!

I really like Girl Scout cookies but don't eat them anymore...what I did last year was tell the little girl that came to the door that I'd pay her for five boxes but that she could keep the cookies.

You could tell by the look in her eyes that she didn't know what to do as I had deviated from the script. So she goes out to the car and talks to Mom for a few minutes and then Mom comes to the door. Mom didn't know what to do so I took the damn cookies and had my wife take them to work.

They must actually teach that honesty crap in Girl Scouts (LOL).

Back when I was in elementary school, I used to love it when the girl scouts were selling cookies.. all these cute girls would come to my door and talk to me.. heh.. sure I ended up with a bit less money, but I got to talk to girls I liked (strangely enough they didn't talk to me at school...) AND I got some cookies.

Julia Roberts was going with Lyle Lovett. I don't know what they are up to now. Lyle is da man! Of course I listen to his music, but besides that, he has this KICK ASS Ducati Monster (motorcycle, for those of us that are confused if something has less than 4 wheels)

were very dark terminator type sunglasses, even at night. grow a burly goaty or better yet just the bottom part on your chin (cut the mustache off at the corners of your mouth), wear an old harley jacket w/chains & stuff then walk w/a serious attitude.... not only do the girl scouts/boy scouts/bellringers etc not ask u for anything (except maybe mercy), their parents grab them & move them out of your way.

wow, u must live in the hood or sumthin where kids arnt scared of much or your harley jacket has fringes instead of chains.
i think its probably in your walk though. u have to walk w/authority. john travolta said the most important thing he does when developing a charachter is his walk. get a book, put it on your head, walk down the.... sorry wrong walk.


i dunno, u ever meet a guy that wears an airbrushed harley jacket & jeans that rides rice rockets?

You guys aren’t going to believe this. I just got back from an emergence run to the local store for some Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia ice cream (for the wife mind you, she’s feeling poorly, flu or something). Ran the gauntlet from the girl scouts on the way in, then in the Ice Cream section I discovered a local ice cream maker is producing “Girl Scout Ice Cream”, with real Girl Scout cookies inside. What next, Girl Scout Bagels? I’m telling you, there is no escape!!!
