It's cookie time! I don't know about you, but I love Girl Scout cookies — despite the expense. I buy my Thin Mints from the adorable troop posted outside of my Safeway (even on the coldest of days!), but many people buy their boxes from co-workers on cookie duty for their kids.
Some parents lug the boxes to work because their kids are too busy to go door-to-door, while others say it isn't safe for their daughters to sell boxes by knocking around the neighborhood. According to CNN, there are some co-workers who don't appreciate the pattern of parents doing the cookie pushing because they don't want to be bothered or they think it's unethical for the parents to make sales that determine which girls get prizes.
