First World Problems

It’s time for the next installment of my latest series, wherein I complain about first world problems — AKA things I should be grateful I have access to but annoy me anyway.

Remember those Girl Scout cookies I was so obsessed with just two days ago? Well, we’ve hit a snag.

Not only is the serving size ridiculous, fooling you into thinking they’re “not that bad,” (Two cookies? How rude.) but they also greatly vary the amount of cookies in each box.

Yeah, right.

Why do I get a mountain of Thin Mints and a molehill of the others? It’s just not fair. Honey Boo Boo can’t promote autographed cookie boxes, and I go through my favorite cookies twice as fast as the so-called most popular.

I’m all for Thin Mints; I get why they’re all the rage. But you can’t tell me Peanut Butter Patties (Tagalongs, for the rest of the world) and Caramel deLites (Samoas) aren’t worthy of some well-deserved praise too.

This just doesn’t add up in my book.

It’s not an issue of money, because I’m happy to support the organization that gave me so much while growing up. And I’m no mathematician, but I’m pretty sure one variety shouldn’t have 40 in a box while another has 15. Boo, hiss.

Thankfully, this blogger found a solution for the in-between months of Girl Scout cookie season. I just hope the bakeries will get it together and level the playing field for us cookie monsters.
