Stranger Buys Up Entire Stock Of Girl Scouts' Cookies So They Can Get Out Of The Cold

UPDATE: Stranger Buys Up Entire Stock Of Girl Scouts' Cookies So They Can Get Out Of The Cold

UPDATE: In a bizarre twist, DEA agents raided the home of 46-year-old Detric McGowan in Laurens County, South Carolina. Agents confiscated cash and “other assets”, according to WSPA News,

There was no mention of DEA agents finding boxes of unopened Girl Scout cookies.

McGowan’s indictment contains multiple charges related to conspiring to manufacture and distribute heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl. And since McGowan paid for those Girl Scout cookies in cold hard cash, those bills very likely came from the illegal drug trade.

A stranger bought up a pair of Girl Scouts' entire stock of Girl Scout cookies so that they could get out of the cold South Carolina weather.

In the name of the almighty green, Girl Scouts will sell cookies in almost any weather. They’re sort of like mail carriers, only they deliver sugary snacks instead of bills and advertisements from local businesses.

And when a man found two Girl Scouts shivering in the cold outside of a grocery store in Greenville, South Carolina, he made the noblest sacrifice any of us could make: he bought all their cookies so they could go home.

According to CNN, the man first walked up and purchased a reasonable 7 boxes of cookies -y'know, just the right amount to get you through a hard workday. Then, after walking away, he turned back and announced he was buying all the cookies. Every. Last. One.

"Pack all of your cookies,” the man said. “I'm taking them all so y'all can get out of this cold."

Okay, so it’s not like he laid down his life or anything. He’s out $540 bucks, but he’s also the proud new owner of 121 boxes of cookies. There is some sacrifice going on with consuming 121 boxes of Girl Scout cookies (especially in the waistline department), but one that most of us would gladly make in order to get a pair of shivering Girl Scouts out of 34-degree weather.

Proud Girl Scout manager Kayla Dillard shared the moment on her Facebook account, which was shared thousands of times before eventually being taken down.
