It's the faces on the box, itself, in many cases. This is identical to the packaging that greeted me at work:



It's like happiness in a box. It's awfully difficult to say no to that.

In terms of "helping the children," I'm all for that, but what are they doing exactly with these "funds"? Are they really helping the community? I've been dreading going outside today, because I face a mountain of snow in my path. The funny thing is, I don't see a Girl Guide in sight (and I have a very good view of the street).

The place that I bought them from said the money is going to fund that troop's trip to New York.

I really don't care where the money is going as long as I get my chocolate covered peanut butter cookie, damn it (the box is already gone - I knew I should have gotten more than one )

Just an update for everyone on my earlier post. Not long after I made those remarks, an amazing thing happened: The girls showed up, started shovelling, and started restoring my faith in the Guiding (Scouting in the US) movement.





Pretty great teamwork.


However, just when things were going great, there was a sudden shift in attitude once I started asking questions about the necessity of trans fats in the cookies:



They ran away, laughing, with one of them shouting "Maybe you can sponsor us to plant a little tree in the Spring!"
