Kids selling things == EVIL HORRIBLE
Man, I hate it when schools ask kids to go door-to-door selling stuff like candy bars. Half the damn time, the parents just hit up the office for it (which pisses me off even more). When I was a kid, when we had to do one of those stupid fund-raisers, I usually wound up buying the stuff myself out of my spending money just to get it over with: I hated hated HATED accosting my neighbors for money. →
As far as I'm concerned, it's just a huge scheme to get kids used to working retail before they can legally work, and my wife and I have already determined that our kid is never going to sell a god damned thing door-to-door for /any/ school-related cause.
