Thin Mints, Samoas, and Tagalongs, Oh my!

The other day I got some girl scout cookies I had ordered. On the box it has the words "courage," "confidence," and "character." I can't help but wonder how the girls develop those traits. Is it "the courage to ask your parents to do all the selling for you," "the confidence of knowing your mother will emotionally blackmail anyone you know who doesn't buy some," and "the character you build by learning to pawn off your responsibilities on others"?
Don't get me wrong. I love the cookies, and those certainly are important things to learn. Still, I don't think I've ever seen a girl scout selling cookies in person, with or without adult supervision.
