Great photo's. Gee lemonade at a kids stand is now
Didn't end up going to Venice where all the real freaky stuff is. These are just a few shots from today at the So Cal beaches plus the spider from work.
The real reason I'm sharing these is for the little kid. He and his brother were adorable!!! Their dad had them stationed at the juncture where the bike/skate path ends and goes down into the boardwalk at the beach (down below). The other brother had a sign that said "Lemonade 50 cents" and the reverse side said "Cookie and a Starburst candy for 50 cents." This young man had a sign offering "Psychiatric Help 5 cents."
Their dad was very serious about teaching them the ways of business. When my husband and I stopped for a lemonade, my husband gave the boy $2. The boy explained that was too much, and my husband told him it was a tip. He didn't know what a tip was, so I told him he got to keep it because he gave us good service. His dad went on to explain in detail to him and his brother (both listening avidly), that they do not JUST serve products. Theirs is a "customer-relations based" business, where serving and pleasing the customer comes first. They not only have to do it right, but do it in such a way that the customer comes away feeling good about the purchase. It's good for business.
If the dad has his way, look for this young man to be the next Donald Trump in another 20 years!
BTW, the young man really tried to earn his money, since my husband had leaned over before I pulled up on my bike) and had told the young man that he would take two lemonades, and "why don't you give the lady here the psychiatric help?!" I'll get even with the husband later. . .LOL
