i missed my calling in life

apparently, i should've been a professional girl scout cookie seller. my boss' admin is out today so he asked me to do him a favor and sell some cookies for him... his daughter. whatever.

i sold over 130 boxes. i lost count after that. shit, i was selling to people i didn't even know.

he should pay me some commission or something... hehe. he asked me if i was "hocking my wares." hehehe....

i can't wait until they come in. i'm going to eat all of mine. and i'm not sharing...

several people asked me how old my girl was... DAMN IT! apparently, i look old enough to have a girl scout aged daughter. son of a bitch! girl scout age better be two! fuckers!

one lady got all upset with me saying how i should have my daughter sell them door to door on her own and how my daughter wasn't going to learn anything... and how she wasn't going to buy any because she bought some from a girl who was going door to door.

yeah, whatever, bitch. if you're not going to buy stop wasting my time with your jibber jabber. sheesh.


sweet! someone just walked by my desk and i had them buy 4 more boxes. selling girl scout cookies is easy. but, god, what a freakin' rip off. $4 per box. rat bastards.

it's been so long since my last girl scout cookie hit, i think i went a little nuts. they freeze well, though. apparently. that's what it says on the order form.

i hate being this busy. i don't have time to catch up on blogs or write anything. it sucks.

and every month it gets worse. selling girl scout cookies is way more fun than working... :P

Was that the same bitch that wouldn't let you have water for your tea? My little sister is selling cookies too...maybe you could share selling secrets. Well, maybe not...she's only 10. Hehe.

$4 a pop? Thats nothing. Its TOTALLY worth it.

Also, if I send you the money, can you get me some of those lemon cookies? mm delicious.

Im being dead serious. I fucking love them. And by college, there aren't many girls who are still involved in the girl scouts. You can see my dilemma

I too whored myself out for my little neice. I did pretty damn good too. I even sold some to my little eleven year-old boyfriend. I felt bad, he probably used his allowance for them. I just wanted to buy them for him after that.

Maybe we should go into the professional girl scout cookie business together. I can't sew, so you're in charge of sewing the "fuck your little girl and her cookies" patch on our sashes. Hrmmm....I wonder what other patches we could earn....:P

I also wanted to note that Dreyer's ice cream has Samoa and Thin Mint flavored ice cream. I get the light because I still want to fit into the uniform...:)

was that the same lady who wanted you to pay for water???

you're blocking me from your page, aren't you? it's because i am old isn't it? :P if i can't post comments then cl shouldnt be able to either since she's older than me! nyaa!

"one lady got all upset with me saying how i should have my daughter sell them door to door on her own and how my daughter wasn't going to learn anything"
Is this really the point of selling GS cookies? Isn't it about the prizes?

And where the hell does this lady live that kids can just go door to door?!?!? Must be in the OC somewhere...There's no door to door going in the LBC, that's for darn sure!

And for the record, I have to go to the grocery store or the bank to buy my GS cookies. They camp out there. Pretty genius to be outside of the bank. It's hard to pull the "no money" excuse when they are there. Sneaky little a-holes!

Since when are life-lessons learned by selling girl scout cookies?? I can tell you from personal experience I learned waaaay more about life when I was getting stoned and eating girl scout cookies. Oh, but those days are long gone. I too am in college and don't have access to a girl scout cookie connection. I need a fix. I will glady pay $4 for one fucking Samoa. Yum.

Never having lived in any country that practices the religion of Girl Scout Cookie Selling, I can't really venture an opinion. Except I once watched an episode of Everybody Loves Raymond where they did the Girl Scouts Cookie thing, and it was funny. So I'm assuming that Girl Scouts are amusing. I'd pay $4 for one.

How did I miss this post? How??? You know, of course, that it's not the cookies they're after. They want inside info about YOU because you're such a mystic.

by the way... here's a little cookie factoid.. up until a few years ago you could only get TWO flavours of cookie in canada! chocolate & vanilla. in the last 5 years or so they have introduced the thin mint ones. so now we have three kinds.

i had no clue there was such a variety available in the US until i met a friend from ct and her mom sold them. oh, the plethora of yumminess!

Gracie, I love your style.

I am Noonan McKane, and am responsible for 'Cottage Hospital Bulletin'. I noticed you'd visited, when I saw you on my 'site-meter', so I returned the compliment and visited yours.

It knocked my eye out. You're cool.

Hope you see fit to visit my blog again, as I shall be a regular visitor to yours!

Stay real, sister.
