Cookie Nazzi

So my youngest daughter, who is 5, is a daisy scout in the Girl Scouts.  She loves participating and has made some very nice friends.  All of the other moms are really friendly and down to earth ( believe me, this isn’t common in Norther Virginia. But that’s a whole other blog ).  The girls have been selling cookies and tonight was the night to turn the cookie orders in.  There is one mom who is in charge of the cookies. She takes this job very seriously. She reminds  all of the other moms on a weekly basis how important she is.   We got the lecture about the correct procedures to sell cookies. We got the lecture on the importance of selling cookies. Blah. Blah. Blah.  She really took the fun out of it for most of us.

As I said, this was the night to turn the cookie orders in.  Now being the very unorganized person that I am, ( I admit it. My friends will confirm it ) I didn’t have the order form to turn in.  The cookie mom went bonkers on me. It was so scary.  I tried to appease her by telling her that I could turn it into the leader the next morning ( her son rides my bus).   She looked at me in utter horror and said “NO!  That just won’t do!  I am the cookie mom!  I am in charge of the cookies!!!!!”   I couldn’t help myself.  I tried so hard. But I just couldn’t help it….I laughed.  It was the most ridiculous thing ever!!!

How do you react to someone like this?  I mean, I really  want feedback from you!  I just didn’t even know what to say to this ranting lunatic.

I don’t know about you, but being the tired mom that I am, I don’t have the  time or patience to deal with people and their ego trips.  I. am. too. tired.

It left me wondering…when it’s not Girl Scout cookie season, what does she do with her time?  Oh I know…she’s president of her HOA.   🙂
