Today's Blind Items - Door To Door

There is an A/A- list mostly television actor who has been on a hit network show for several years. It has spawned at least one spinoff. Our actor is known in his neighborhood as the person to go to when you are selling Girl Scout cookies or candy or whatnot. You are probably thinking to yourself this should be a kindness, but is so far from being that. Our actor has been previously accused of improper behavior and it doesn't seem as if he has changed his ways. If you are female and a certain age and a certain look, he invites you inside while he gets his wallet. If a parent is there he invites them inside too. He puts on that charm offensive so the next time, maybe the girl comes in by herself or the parent doesn't feel as if they need to chaperone. They need to because our actor will always touch or hug or grope. So far that is all that anyone has reported. There have been three that jointly had a meeting with the actor and their parents and he insisted it was all a big misunderstanding. It has not gone beyond that. Yet.

If it hasn't gone "beyond that" and the police are not involved then what's the blind concerned about?

Because he's allegedly groping children, J?

Mark Harmon only has kindness blinds written about him here. Also no public allegations of sexual assault. Anthony Anderson has several accusations, but is usually listed as "alliterate" mostly tv actor. Enty has talked about Wilmer's hooking up with underage actresses, but he's usually listed as "former" mostly tv actor.

I really hope it's not Mark Harmon. This is so creepy.

He's a perv and things can escalate from there.

Frankly, anybody that comes to my door with candy or cookies gets a hug.

Even 10+ years ago when the school I worked at had fundraisers, the company would encourage students to give the form to the parents to take to work or have the parents talk to family and friends. I thought the reason for the change was depressing, but would also chuckle to myself bc back in my day, we considered those kids the cheaters. Selling those chocolate bars and/or cheese and sausage sets required time, blood, sweat and tears, darn it! Now, I'm surprised this rite of passage still exists in ANY variation.

Im not sure who our overly friendly customer is, but it seems alarming that he's still taking the risk of these interactions if there has already been a "discussion."

You don't want to get on that Girl Scout 'No Fly List'....takes years to get off of it. Also, has anyone else noticed the rise in Girl Scout-related deaths lately? Seems like ex-GSs and ex-leaders have been turning up dead all over the place. Scary times.

@Vita: Nothing pisses me off more than when someone brings their kid’s ‘form’ to work. For whatever they’re selling. Because you feel obligated to purchase something (especially if the person is more senior than you.) I have 5 nieces & nephews & most of my friends have kids, so I don’t need to buy stuff from some kid who I’ve never met whose lazy parent leaves their kid’s form in the coffee room. (Can you tell that I consistently got the award for selling the most cookies when I was a Brownie? I take this quite seriously.)

Times have definitely changed, so let the parents accompany their kids door-to-door (every time) or let the KIDS call their relatives & friends. Having the parent do it defeats the purpose. BTW, I’m the easiest customer. I don’t even want the cookies so I donate them to the military & just mail a check.

All that crap is overpriced. Doesn't matter. Cookies, pizza, wreaths, popcorn, annuals for the garden. All overpriced crap.

That was a story about Bill Clinton in Little Rock for a long time but he would always come back when the husbands were working and the kids were at school to collect "money" from the hot moms.

Vita said...

Aquagirl-- Ha! They nail you with guilt! At home, you can hide and pretend you didnt hear the door...but, at work? Doomed! And how do you say no? Genius and generous to donate...unfortunately, i never think of that. Instead, I wind up with $15 wrapping paper and $35 bag of popcorn. Bless the choir selling the $2 chocolate bars...they keep shrinking, but they are dangerously delicious and affordable!😁

Opposite prob here. Can't FIND anyone selling Girl Scout cookies. I think it's a sign of the times. They do not go door to door. A group will set up a table at a shopping plaza instead and people have to find them.

It's 2019 they need to sell online. Can't safely go door to door. I don't think people who work with the parents should feel obligated to buy. Teach the kids to make their own websites, how to code, make the badge for that instead of being a junior salesgirl.

Always worked hard to sell and did well selling. No one was pressured. I barely could begin the speech before they'd want to know how many they can buy.

Used to get sent stuff by family and would try to buy 2-3 things off that list, catalog, whatever...Just to help out. I'm not sure why schools feel OK with this, it's child labor.

A neighbor kid used to come around selling wrapping paper and such but she must have outgrown it? Dunno. It wasn't a big deal and can always find a use for wrap and bows.

Vita, those chocolate bars are the best ones I agree. (Best deal/quality.) Maybe they quit selling those because of all the peanut allergies now. Never used to hear of that ... now every third kid can't even smell peanuts, without risk to life, let alone be in a school that asks kids to sell candy bars made in a factory that also processes peanuts.

I do not trust the "Girl Scouts". I was a girl scout for five years.
The stories I could tell. Injured on a runaway horse. Lost in the woods at nine years old. Sent out the front door with an order form, to sell cookies, by myself, on streets I didn't know at all. There was actual danger in being a Girl Scout. I am not exaggerating at all.

I had a friend with a much worse 'scouting story' than mine.

Being a boy scout was about the same until the scout master has a few Bourbons.

lilactor said...

Bs it’s not Anthony or mark or the girl scouts
