Have Girl Scout cookies gotten so expensive that people have resorted to cheating and stealing to get them? Or maybe the recession is so bad that there’s no money left for Girl Scout cookies after purchasing a tank of gas. Whatever the case may be, please folks! Don’t start robbing the girl scouts with fake money. By the way, where do you get counterfeit money in a recession? People are so broke counterfeit money has dried up too.
But, obviously not in the area of Newnan, Ga. Three little girl scouts were standing outside a Food Lion grocery store selling their cookies when a woman walked up and bought $24 worth of cookies. (Which must’ve been something like 3 boxes. Have you seen the price of those cookies lately?) She paid with a $50. The girls were raising money for a local charity called One Roof, which is an organization for needy families in Newnan.
But then tragedy struck as one of the girl scout mothers went to deposit the money at the bank. The bank teller had to give the unfortunate news that the $50 was indeed a counterfeit bill. The girls were devastated that someone would do this. Both the mayor and the bank were happy to give donations. Check out the story. (Note: Also check out the girls’ teeth. It looks like they’ve been eating their fair share of the cookies too.)
