Lemonade Stand

August 5, 2010

Note the sign, labeling spilled juice marks as examples!

This was a few weeks ago, on an especially sunny day. Bennie and her neighbor-girl gang really hustled, biking and scootering up and down the street calling to all the neighbors and dog walkers. In their busy afternoon they made $15, at their sliding scale of  “free – .50cents a cup”.

Then the juice and cups started running low, (due to their frequent tasting of their own wares). The new policy became  asking that their customers to drink their juice there and return their cups for washing.  They also started seriously watering down their juice. And telling people their juice was watered down.

I overheard them telling customers, “There was a fly in the juice, but we fished it out. Don’t tell anyone.”

Their sweet honesty garnered them a few repeat customers, though, including the man collecting cans, and a few neighbor dogs.
