What is wrong with this world?

o.k So my daughters sat outside today in the hot sun for an hour and a half doing a punch & popcorn sale to try and earn money for an upcoming trip. Not ONE car stopped. What is wrong with people today. i stop for every little kid out there selling lemonade or whatever it is they are selling. how can we teach our future leaders the importance of hard work and earning their own money if we do not help them.
I was furious. i gave them each a dollar and told them I was sorry. I watched an Oprah a few years back and she said the same thing. She stops every time. it only takes a minute out of your day to make a little child smile. Come on people it is only a quarter. Really.

So sorry that I didn't need to go down there today. I bought some last week from Shar's grandson. It was yummy.

I woulda stopped.

You should advertise that jazz on your blog. Or go to a new development to set up shop.

Madi did a lemonade/rice krispy stand during the construction of our neighborhood, and she made serious bank! Those construction guys get parched and they'll pay anything for a nice cold glass of lemonade!

I wish I could have bought one! I know what is wrong with people these days! The worst is when I am in a big hurry and want to stop but can't i feel so guilty! Tell your girls to keep up the good work!

Sounds like you need a new neighborhood, lol...Keep trying! Don't give up! :) I'm thinking around 5pm when people start getting off work? Hopefully they have better luck next time.

I thought this looked fun and was curious to see who would acually do it. So, even if I do not know you, sign the guestbook
