Today I had a long "to do" list that involved trips to many places where currency is exchanged for goods or services. It seems like every store I approach these days have young entrepreneurs sitting outside. They all ask the same question..."Would you like to buy some cookies?" Bless their hearts, I know they have good intentions and its for a good cause, but for crying out loud, quit harassing me over some cookies!
At every cookie marketing hub, there is always a parent teaching their child and their friends that its perfectly acceptable randomly ask people if they would like to buy what they are selling. This sort of real-life spam just really annoyed me today.
I can see your vests. I can see your merit badges. I can see the boxes of cookies. I know what your selling. If I want some cookies, I'm familiar with the process of how to go about buying them. STOP ASKING! At the very least, remember that I didn't want any when I walked in the door, so don't ask me again as I walk out. Pretty please?
