You Shouldn’t Shake Teenagers… You Shouldn’t Shake Teenagers…

, , , , | Right | December 9, 2020

I’m taking drive-thru orders when a vanload of teenagers pull up to the speaker.

Teen #1: “How many shakes can we get for $10?”

Me: “For $10, we can do three.”

Teen #2: *Weird sly tone* “How many shakes can we get for eleven dollars?” 

Me: “Still just three. How many shakes were you hoping to get?” 

Teen #1: “Uh, four.”

Me: “Four shakes would come to [total]. Is that okay?” 

[Teen #1] asks around the car for change.

Teen #1: “Uh, yeah that’s fine.” 

I get the four shakes ready as they come to the window. 

Teen #1: “Yeah, we only have [$1 less than total]; can you take a shake off?” 

Me: *Internally screaming* “Sure. So, three shakes come to [total].”

They pay, and as I’m handing out their shakes…

Teen #3: “I found another dollar! Can we get that last shake?”
