Dalek Member Oct 25, 2017 15,478 Feb 22, 2020 #1 Just wanted to air a grievance. My daughter is 11 and this is our 5th year selling Girl Scout cookies. The girls work hard to set up a booth, usually do a 3 hour booth and try to earn money - one month out of the year. They get excited, take it seriously and it helps to build confidence for the girls. They money they earn can be used to do projects like donations for animal shelters, maybe a camping or archery trip etc. The girls are taught to be polite - simply ask “Would you like any Girl Scout Cookies?” If someone says “No thank you.” It’s not a big deal if someone says no. They will then say “Thank you-have a nice day!” It’s not a big deal if someone says no- it’s all about the experience and being positive. This year however I’m seeing more and more people just straight up being rude to the girls. They’ll walk by, stop when asked-make direct eye contact-say nothing and keep walking. I thought at first maybe it was just people who didn’t speak English-but there’a just no way at this point. It’s weird and bizarre. They clearly hear the girls-and don’t say anything in response and keep walking. Just say “No thanks!” or “Good luck!” But to say nothing is just odd. The Girl Scouts is a wonderful organization and my daughter has done a lot and learned a lot. I just feel they deserve to be respected more than they’re getting currently.
