“So, I’m indulging at Happy Hour, and this poor kid runs my large Dr. Pepper out, and is sweating like crazy. I notice he is the ONLY car hop they have and this place is packed. It’s not more than 75 out, and it’s pretty overcast, so I know it’s not just from all the heat.
As I take my drink, I make light conversation and say, ‘They really have you working today, huh?’
He replies, ‘Yes ma’am! I got off from one of my jobs at 1 this afternoon, and I go into another job at 5, but they asked me if I could come in and work for a few hours because they had some call ins, so it’s just me.’
Left a little speechless, I was like, ‘So, you work 3 jobs?’
He said, ‘yes ma’am.’
I said, ‘Wow, that’s impressive.’
He replied, ‘Well, I will be a senior next year and with my parents getting me a new car, helping with all of my sports, and getting ready to send me to college, I know it’s a lot on them, so I want to help them out even though they said I don’t have to and even though it may not be much. I just want them to know I appreciate it.’
I tipped the young man and told him the world needs more kids with that mind frame. Hell, more adults! The kid is 17 and working 3 jobs!!!! Not just sitting back with his hand out allowing his parents or whoever to provide everything for him. I know some grown ass people who could really learn some valuable lessons from this kid!
To say I was highly impressed with this young man doesn’t even begin to cover it! His parents have done one hell of a job!”
