Brian and the Hard Sell

The Hard Sell
by
DB

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.".

"Why?"

"SIT!"

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."
