Girls

Posted on Monday, March 26th, 2012

Dave!Yesterday on the way home from The Coast, I stopped at the grocery store because my cupboards were bare. On the way in, I noticed a table stacked with Girl Scout cookies being attended by sweet, smiling Girl Scouts. "Hello!" they said cheerfully as I walked by. After shopping, I went to pay for my groceries and realized I forgot my wallet in the car. "Hello!" said the Girl Scouts once again as I rushed out to my car. I grabbed my wallet and dashed back into the store. "Hello!" said the Girl Scouts as I ran past.

After finally paying for my groceries, I was pushing my cart out to the parking lot when the smiling Girl Scouts once again gave me a cheery "Hello!" as I rolled past. "OKAY! I'LL BUY A BOX OF COOKIES!" I bellowed.

It was then that I noticed the Girl Scouts were wearing jeans and T-shirts. "Hey! Where are your Girl Scout uniforms?" I asked. I was then shown that the girls were wearing an official "Girl Scouts Pin" and told that uniforms are now optional. "Optional?!? Then how can I tell you're real Girl Scouts? Maybe you mugged some Girl Scouts and stole those cookies! This got me some nervous laughter, but apparently they didn't care about my being a smart-ass so long as I was buying their cookies. That's just good business sense, I suppose...

Lil' Dave and Bad Monkey sell Girl Scout Cookies!

It's probably only a matter of time before other uniforms go the way of the dodo bird. But so long as that police officer is wearing his official "Police Force Pin," he still has a license to shoot people and drive really fast with his lights flashing... even if they're wearing a pair of Hawaiian board shorts and a lime green tank top.

Oh well. I guess we'll still get to see uniforms on Halloween...

30 DAYS DRAWING CHALLENGE: Draw Something You Don't Like...

Santorum Poster in a Pile of Shit.

And I'm liking Rick "Piece of Shit" Santorum less and less every day. That being said, he would be hysterical opponent for President Obama in a debate. The entertainment value would be so amazing that I'm almost tempted to donate to his campaign.

  1. i am quite sad that they don’t at least wear the uniform to sell cookies. way to jack up my morning!

    For every person like you who hassles them for not wearing the traditional uniform, there’s two people who get all weird and creepy because they ARE wearing the traditional uniform, which has unfortunately been fetishized (as is seen in your choice of ‘Halloween Costume’ photos).

    Seriously, the number of guys who get all creepy when they find out I’m a lifetime Girl Scout and start asking about my uniform is significant— and I’m an adult! Imagine how that feels when you’re a teenager.

  3. Sybil Law says:

    They should TOTALLY be wearing the uniforms! Lame! Eh – I’m not some crazed fan of the cookies, anyway. Even though I bought some.

  4. martymankins says:

    The Girl Scouts at my local grocery store last week were in full uniform. We bought 2 boxes.

    Of course if I saw one like the one pictured above in her outfit, I’d buy 10 boxes.

  5. the muskrat says:

    A cookie, even if bought from a non-uniformed vendor, is just as sweet.

  6. Sarah says:

    I’m sad that they don’t have to wear the uniforms anymore. My Mom probably still has my old girl scout uniform.

  7. Stacey says:

    We don’t have a grocery store in my town so the Girl Scouts sell their cookies outside the liquor store (I’m not sure if this is sad or brilliant). I don’t think they wore uniforms, but they did have their vests or sashes or whatever on.

  8. Patty says:

    I’m gettin me some thin mints too from a friend’s daughter. Why do men find all these dress up outifts sexy? Ha! dumb question. Just the way ya are wired I suppose.

    I would like to point something out to everyone. As a current Girl Scout (Senior Scout, going into my ninth year) I can confirm that the Girl Scout uniform, a vest or tunic for Daisy Scouts or a vest or sash for Brownies through Ambassadors, is in fact optional. They can be quite expensive, the Cadette/Senior/Ambassador sash costs $12-15 dollars, while my vest cost $25. Many families these days cannot afford the uniform and “scouterships” as they are called are limited to one or two girls per council. The pins are however required when ever we are officially representing the Girl Scouts. According to the GSUSA the only time the full uniform of white collared shirt, khaki pants or skirt, and vest/sash/tunic, is if a girl is participating in an event such as a flag ceremony, or at a Girl Scout Sunday/Sabbath ceremony. Personally, if I am not at one of these ceremonies, I wear I nice pair of jeans and a shirt that does not have words on it. Living in Indiana, if it is the summer time, I will wear a pair of shorts, but I have a specific pair that I use. The only time I have ever made an exception to the official uniform was this past Girl Scout Monday, when I wore a black polo in honor of two boys from my school who had been killed in a car accident the Saturday before.
