    How About A Sample Of Maturity

    | Paintsville, KY, USA |

    Me: “Hello! What would you like today?”

    Customer: “My son would like to try a root beer shaved ice!”

    (I make a root beer in a sample cup, but the customer takes the cup instead and tries it herself.)

    Customer: “EWWW! This is GROSS!”

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am.”

    Customer: “This tastes like CLOVES! Ewwww! I don’t like CLOVES! This is GROSS!”

    Me: “Would you like to try another flavor?”

    Customer: “My son would like to try s’mores.”

    (I make a s’mores flavor in a sample cup, and just like last time, the customer tries it instead of her son trying it.)

    Customer: “EWWW! This is GROSS! I don’t like this!!”

    (A few minutes later…)

    Customer: “He’ll take a medium lemon-lime wedding cake flavored shaved ice. Oh, can we get a straw too?”

    Me: “Sure thing!”

    (I hand the customer a plastic bendy straw, who sticks it in her son’s shaved ice and takes a sip.)

    Customer: “EWWW! This is gross!! This straw tastes funny!”

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am. How does it taste funny?”

    Customer: “It… it tastes like PLASTIC!! Ewww!”
