This is What You Do When You Couldn’t Get Teens in Front of Your Store to Turn Down Their Music.
Description
One teen asked...."You mean we can order anything we want?"
I replied "why not."

Berry Accius posted this about what happened when he couldn’t get some teens in front of his store to turn down their music.

I thought what he did was brilliant.
Here’s what he wrote:

Random Acts of Real......
You don't need to know them to show them some love.....

Seen a group of 15 youngin from my Hidden Gems Thrift Store in the parking lot acting like some young teens do.

I 1st approached them about the noise level and the rock throwing in the parking lot.
They listened but I could see they didn't fully grasp what I had to say.

20mins later my landlord is now talking to them.
He trying to explain the errors of their current behavior.

I soon joined him in the discussion as we both pointed out the greatness each individual possessed.

Still hammering the message this is a business incubator not a playground.

I then told everyone give me 20mins I will get you all McDonald's!

Now we really talking they're language.

One teen asked...."you mean we can order anything we want?"
I replied "why not."

With a puzzled stare he said thank you.
I replied "Your welcome I got your back!"

If we are to be this village that we seek.
These challenging moments don't become a challenge they become a part of the build.....

The Thank you is enough for my generosity.....

Countine to show these youngin you care.....
I don't have to know you to show you
