Girl Scouts: Just Say No To E-Commerce
from the but-can't-stay-away-from-eBay dept
Okay. I'll admit that I fell for the nostalgia factor - remembering how much I used to like Girl Scout cookies when I was a kid. It's been years, though, so last month when some Girl Scouts stopped by trying to sell cookies I ended up with five boxes. Now I have them, and I'm really not a cookie eating person, so I'm trying to figure out what to do with them. I even thought of trying to put them up on eBay, but it sounds like plenty of other people are already doing so - despite the fact that this is (just as it was last year) a big no-no in the Girl Scout's official rules. You can sell the cookies by email, but you cannot, under any circumstance sell them on the web. I still can't figure out why this is. If the idea is to teach young girls about "personal responsibility and how to manage money", using the web doesn't seem to go against those goals. In the meantime, anyone want some Girl Scout cookies?
