We got rid of most of those laws in the 70's, I thought you Nordic people were supposed to be ahead of us .

LOL. There are still blue laws in many states. In Texas, car dealerships must close on one weekend day and the dealership can decide if it will be Saturday or Sunday. Before 2008, they had to close on Sunday.

Yeah, I know some counties still had them.

I think the idea was supposed to be to make sure even lowly shop-workers got sufficient time off. Only a few years ago they couldn't be open on Sundays at all except for during the summer and the month before Christmas.

No sign of her troop leader or a parent in that picture though. GS requires an adult at all booth sales.

Also, 117 boxes in an hour is not much more than what we sell at grocery stores. We have 2 hour shifts and often sell 200 to 300 boxes on a good day.

I was more excited over the fact it was outside a marijuana dispensary than anything . I will say that some of the GS tables in my area don't seem to have adults at the table. I imagine not all troops take the rules on that that serious.

The adult does not have to stand at the table, but has to be present in the area of the booth. This girl from the uniform was probably either a cadette (7th, 8th grade) or senior (9th, 10th grade) or ambassador (11th, 12th grade) so old enough to do most of the selling on her own.
