I took my 3 boys to register for cub scouts today. They were excited about it. Of course right away I got the sheets to sell the overpriced popcorn. The leader was talking about personal goals and such. So I asked how much the kids usually sell. He replied "about $1200" My jaw dropped and I asked if it was each or the entire group. He said that is the average sales per child!!!!!! Holy crap!!! Am I supposed to sell $3600 in over priced pop corn? I told him that we have absolutely no family in this area and 3 other moms there work at the same place as I do! I hate paying $15 for something I can get at WalMart for $3!!! I guess everyone is getting popcorn for Christmas from us this year!
