Remembered something last night -then forgot- from something I witnessed over the weekend when son worked late.
There was a backpack left outside, and it was long after the last custumer had left. Brought it to the counter and bellowed out for someone and an employee (after a good interval) took procession of it. Now 15 minutes or so later, a big SUV pulls in in a hurry and 3 kids quickly pile out along with father and they immediately begin to look, for as it turned out, the backpack. I tell them its being held for them in the back, raise the shutters and bellow for son, twice. In the meantime I look at the kids closer and notice one of them is actually a girl, maybe 11 or 12.
Son finally comes out from the back, annoyed and tells me I did not have to shout out twice; he heard me already. To which the girl pipes up "Then why didn't you come out the first time?!"
At that young an age…………………………………….
