It certainly felt like yesterday was the first day of summer. I ventured out to Dairy Queen for the first time this year. It was chaos. The poor kids working there were swamped. Unlike other Dairy Queens that I see in other places, the one in Trenton is open year round, and I'm sure that the employees had no idea what was going to hit them when they opened the doors yesterday morning. They kept order as best they could in a scene that resembled a line up for food in a camp in Bangladesh.
I'm always amazed at how ill natured some people can be and how they can be rude to teenagers working at minimum wage jobs. How would they feel if people talked like that to their kids? If I could get away with it, sometimes I'd like to punch people in the mouth. Despite the few beligerent jerks customers these kids handled the stress very gracefully and kept things going as smoothly as they could.
Feeling a little guilty I scooped up my treat and abandoned them to their fate.
