Selling Popcorn, Year Two

Unfortunately, this year he was in front of Sunflower (farmer's market store). Not only were fewer people in the mood for popcorn (than last year's Walmart), many people were outright rude to the kids!

Several people just ignored them, some snapped no, a couple said, "You already asked me on the way in!" I was pretty disappointed. I mean, I'm not a kid person, but I'm never rude to kids--especially those who have been on their feet, trying to sell popcorn for hours.

Anyhow, the boys got burned out with the whole thing, as a result:

After three hours, we called it a day. They had only sold maybe five popcorn tins and were upset. Alex's dad bought them ice cream bars to cheer them up.
