Brian and the Hard Sell

The Hard Sell

Brian was walking to work at his new job when he made a shortcut through a tough neighborhood, Suddenly two very young teenage girls stopped him. One stood in front of him. The other stood behind him with a large sack. The one in front pointed to a bench nearby and said "Sit down, Mister.".



Brian sat.

"Gimme your wallet" she said.

"Are you trying to rob me?"

"No. Gimme your wallet." She held our her hand in a gimme gesture. Brian handed her his wallet. She opened it, took out just a few bills then handed it back to him. The other girl reached into her sack and took out a brown paper bag which she dropped in his lap. Then, without a word, they walked away.

Brian carefully opened the paper bag and saw two thin boxes.

"Ah ha" he said. "I see. I just bought my girl scout cookies."

The End
