(WTSP)   If you're 13 years old, it's great to make a few bucks selling hot dogs on the side of the road. It's even better to be bought out for $2500   (wtsp.com) divider line 11

This whole scenario reeks of the south.

Kid wants to sell food in a public area but does ZERO research about the legality of selling food.
Parents allow him to throw this whole stupid thing together and either...
A) Do not tell him that there are laws about selling food.
B) Somehow made it through life in America with understanding a single thing about food safety.
Lands a wedding gig, for a hot dog cart run and served by a 13 year old kid with no permits to sell food.

Again, the parents allowed their minor child to spend "thousands" of dollars, which were saved for college, on a food cart to sell food in public with no idea that there are laws against this.

So stupid, they must be Teapartypublicans.

Sergeant Grumbles: GoldDude: Did several people write individual sentences as part of this article then threw them all together with no editing?
Let me recap: the boy "originally saved up thousands of dollars to buy the cart", then sold it to the packing company for $2500, which was "a lot more than Duszynski paid for it".
The only way I figure that makes sense is that the kid saved up thousands of dollars, then found out he only needed about $2k to buy one. Dumbass.

"Originally saved up thousands of dollars"?
You mean his parents gave him Christmas birthday money?
I admire the kid's spirit, but I hope to go he doesn't grow up thinking he worked harder than everyone else simply because he had a good opportunity and well-off parents.

/Christmas was $200 max except when Dad got laid off
//Birthday was $25 max
///despises those born on third base thinking they hit a triple


A whole lot of this. It isn't so much that I care that they have money, it's just that they usually don't seem to grasp that it isn't normal for grandma to give everyone in the room $500 at major holidays. It really gets bad when they start with the "... and I paid for it all myself without anyone's help."

While I agree that it was irresponsible of the parents to let him go that far without informing him of the food permits, etc, that would be needed - Think about this: How many people over the age of 25 don't know that you need a busking permit usually to sell on the side of the street? I imagine quite a few, if not the majority. Now, apply that to a 13 year old boy and you'll understand why the kid probably just didn't see the various steps that he'd need to go through. At an age when most kids are thumbing through an anarchist's cookbook to find something to do, this kid should be commended for trying to be motivated. And, if his greatest sin is not seeking a permit, he's still angelic compared to most investment bankers on wall street, who are rewarded for their vapidness and ethical breaches with 6-figure salaries..

This, except for the part where Sgt. Grumbles sour-grapes the fact that his parents are losers, and thus he was born not on 3rd base, but instead in the back of a pick-up in the parking lot of 7-11 across from the stadium.

mr lawson: err...his parents are poor and sick, which is why he was doing this in the first place to help out with medical bills. Don't think they gave him the money.


Where did he get the money, then?
It's not like he earned it working in the coal mines. Some relative had to have given him money. I just take issue with the way the article says he saved it up, as if he were working for it. Mowing lawns doesn't net you that kind of scratch unless you've got a wide repeat client base, and even THAT takes the kind of family support my 13 old self didn't have.

Gonna go with people who just graduated from college and need something to keep their drunk friends fed on the cheap for the reception.

A packaging company heard about the boy's troubles and bought the truck for 25-hundred dollars.

WTF writes like this. Jesus Christ.
