#148 - Free Mother's Day Flowers

As we were driving around yesterday, we saw all sorts of people/stands selling flowers. We then drove by one corner, and there was a little girl with a bucket of flowers (picked from a bush next to her house). We turned around, we had to buy flowers from her. I'm a big supporter of kid entrepreneurs. As a kid I sold apples in front of our house and not one person stopped to buy one. I then started selling candy, that's where the money was. Back to my story >>>

As we pulled up, we noticed the sign said, "Free Flowers Happy Mother's Day".

Me (double checking I wasn't going blind), "How much are they?"

Little girl, "They're free, which color do you want?"

Me, "Either, you pick."

Little girl, "How 'bout both?"

As she handed me the flowers, I said, "Can I pay you anyway?"

She said, "Sure".

What a smart business woman!

How sweet! Nice of you to offer to pay, though! It is hard to turn down kids selling anything!
