More Proof Kids Are The Future
I'm working the coffee trailer at this elementary school fundraiser, when this cute little blond boy walks up who's got to be no more than 7 years old. When I say hello, he very politely asks if we have smoothies. I tell him yes and point to our menu, which he slowly scans with a crinkled forehead, sounding out each word.
"Excuse me," he says. "But can you mix the smoothies?"
"Yes," I say. "Which flavors would you like to mix?"
"I would like to mix the mango and the peach, please."
"A small one of those would be four dollars," I tell him.
This is when he pulls a folded five-dollar bill out of his pocket and holds it out to me.
"I would like one dollar in change, please," he says.
