Parents: Listen I'll just buy you a hat if I don't have to deal with this.
@Nekozombie, but I already asked for 14 boxes of chocolates that I need to sell in one week!
@Nekozombie, literally me as a parent
@Nekozombie, My parents who both have business degrees sat me down when my school tried this and showed me prices of all the prizes to explain how stupid it was
@TriangleTesticles, That was nice of them :)
@Nekozombie, me standing outside selling girl scout cookies in 20 degree weather for 30 hours so my daughter gets a free pen.
@CrazyRightWinger, I was a girl scout for about a year when I was 15 or 16. Biggest rip off ever. We sold cookies and home made jewelry for my 'friend' only for her and her mom to get all the credit and money
@Nekozombie, the reason so many girls join the boy scouts now is that the boys actually go camping and do stuff.
@CrazyRightWinger, No lie. I asked at one point when we were going to do any of that stuff instead of just selling stuff at festivals and the wheelchair bound overweight scout master just kinda 'Nah we don't do that kinda stuff' what's the points then
FREE HAT! FREE HAT! FREE HAT!

They are all bulk cheap Chinese items!
Get them into pyramid schemes while they’re young
The sad thing is that once you enter corporate America? It doesn’t get much better
But it's free! I can do a bunch of work to get free stuff
Raffles are the dryer lint of any childhood
Well, to be fair, it is a pretty nice hat...
Free hat!? Not just lunch with the principal? What a deal!
I have an idea, let’s just tax all the homeowners and use that money for the school.... oh wait.
