"Mister would you like to buy some cookies?" No little girl, I would not. Besides, other than the lemon chalet cremes, they all pretty much suck.
Anywhoo, I knew that there was a reason that I didn't like the little female youth group:
"ATLANTA (AP) -- An Atlanta-area mother has filed a lawsuit against a Girl Scouts organization alleging that her twin daughters were expelled from their troop after they gave a presentation on their family's involvement in the civil rights movement.
Angela Johnson filed the suit last week in Gwinnett County State Court, claiming intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence. The suit says the troop leaders knew an expulsion would cause the girls harm and that the organization had a responsibility to repair the situation.
In a statement, the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta says the girls weren't expelled and calls the incident a "disagreement between well-intentioned moms," referring to Johnson and the troop leaders.
The 8-year-old twins gave a presentation in March for their "family heritage project" that centered on their family's involvement in the civil rights movement in Mississippi, and they were distraught when they received a cool response from the audience and troop leaders, the lawsuit says.
"The only applause they received was from the other two African American girls and one Indian girl in attendance," the suit says." [Article]
I sure hope that they weren't expelled. And, if they were, it had better be because they didn't sell enough cookies.
