Quotable Quote: Leave Me Be, Girl Scouts

I’ll be the one to say it. Girl Scout cookies suck. I know it’s for a good cause — little money grubbers out in cute green outfits and pig tails — but they’re just not as good as everyone makes them out to be. I hate this time of year. They all sit outside of every store I want to go into … waiting, lurking, ready to pounce. They are the wildcats stalking their prey; I am the innocent just-want-to-buy-some-freaking-Band-Aids-at-Winco bystander. Leave me be, Girl Scouts. I don’t want your stinking cookies/Christina Lords/UI Argonaut ("Off the Cuff")

Question: Do you mind being approached for donations at the entrance to stores by Girl Scouts or other charitable organizations?
