As a 10 year old currently selling lemonade in my neighborhood, I'm really getting a kick out of these replies!
 
2013-07-03 01:29:43 PM
What the hell is it with the lemonade stands lately? My neighborhood is thick with them - I see 2 or 3 a week easy - and I've lived there 8 years so it's not like it's just a quirk of the area.

Is it like a hipster thing? Did Oprah recommend some lemonade stand book? Did Mortimer and Randolph sell all their frozen lemonade concentrate holdings, driving down the price?

Well that's the usual good judgment we've all come to expect from our local police forces. Do they stop people with triple-digit IQs and common sense from applying to enter the force?

SpectroBoy: For the busy-body


So then it is cool if I send my kids and all their friends to stand outside of your house and scream for a couple hours?  After all, they're just children playing.  If you object to that, you are obviously a filthy communist.

TheGreatGazoo: I have a nephew who is autistic.  His voice is either at 0 or up to 11.  There isn't much in between.

I'd hate to have someone like that yelling outside my window if I had to work the night shift or something.


And of course ALL autistic kids are EXACTLY like your nephew.  No in-between.

gfid: olapbill: kid needs to learn when to STFU.   Want to sell vaguely lemony water? great.  Your neighbours don't want to hear your ass all day trying  to sell it.

"journalist" needs to learn the difference between balling and bawling , sicced and sicked.

No shiat.  The education system in this country is farked.  And apparently Canadian education isn't much better.

FFS, I have a degree in engineering.  I took ONE literature class in college and I know the right words to use.  How the fark does someone with a job as a journalist not know the farking language?


Sun News is the Fox News of Canada.

Sounds like my neighborhood every day when the weather is nice. I just turn my music up and drown them out.

No shiat, Sherlock.  But there is a big difference between kids talking and giggling with the occasional scream versus kids screaming at every car that goes by for hours on end, several days in a row.

If you cannot tell the difference, please do the world a favor and don't have children.

Well, right as we speak, I have a guy power washing his house on one side and five teenage girls on the other singing to Miley Cyrus (badly). It's pretty much par for the course. They put up with me playing metal and loud house guests, I return the favour.

Sure, if your kids are special needs kids (seems likely) and they do it once a year, in the afternoon, and for a real charity then sure, send em over. I would even buy some.

You see, my house has an amazing space-age feature. It has WINDOWS and they close!

"Corbin and his sisters have been running a lemonade stand on July 1 for the past three years."

If you cannot read the article, please do Fark a favor and don't post a comment.

Yeah, I joked about having someone come down and close up the lemonade stand when my oldest (8) wanted to sell lemonade and the Harry Potter wands he'd carved himself earlier this summer.

We even made a profit.

"No shiat"? If it's so obvious, then why did you ask? It's a pretty universal thing that kids will be loud when outside and playing.

If you can't handle some loud kids for a couple hours, perhaps you should purchase a fainting couch for you nerves.

As a matter of fact Autistic persons DO have particularly loud, penetrating screams.  See "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" or "Rain Man" for examples.  Or maybe you could voluteer at a special needs event.

Not to mention the constantly running lawn mowers and weed whackers.

Can not wait till our house is built and I can move back out to the country.

Burning_Monk: f you can't handle some loud kids for a couple hours


It really depends on how loud they are.

I have two families with young children as neighbors and they often have pool parties.  The kids yell and scream once in a while.  Usually doesn't last more than an hour.  No big deal.

That is NOT the same as having kids yelling at every car that goes by.  And as somebody else in the thread noted, kids with Downs can sometimes lack a volume control.  I have a friend with a mosaic Downs daughter and I can attest to that.  When she gets excited, her internal volume knob goes to 11.
 
2013-07-03 02:03:14 PM
Sgt. Nancy van Rooy disagrees with the account of the parents/kids and subby's headline. Since the police generally have no problem shrugging and saying "just enforcing the law..." and since no cops appear to be in danger of a lawsuit, disciplinary action, or prosecution here, I tend to believe the cops in this case.

I must have missed something in the article, because I didn't see anything about the kid playing basketball.

Mimic_Octopus: Brittabot: According to TFA, the kids do this every year on Canada Day to raise money for a hospital.

I could see a neighbor getting annoyed if they were doing this daily what with the noise and running around and everything, but FFS, they're kids, selling lemonade, on a holiday, for a good cause.

Dear neighbor lady: Why dont you go back in your house, wash the sand out of your vagina, put on some music to drown out the sounds of happy children, and maybe reevaluate your life if this is something for which you'd seriously consider calling EMERGENCY SERVICES.

fark your happy children. sell that shiat in front of your own house and do it without screaming. every farking craft project your douche bag  offspring wants to perpetrate is not a protected event.  just shut up and go home.  and the lady did go out multiple times and tell him to stop yelling before calling teh cops


Perhaps YOU are the one that needs to go wash some sand out.

Of course all autistic kids are different.  I'm just saying we may not have all of the facts.  If you have some kid outside your window yelling at every car going past at voice level 11, that can get really old really quick.

And yes, my house has windows that close.  They are single pane/lousy windows.  They don't block much.

If it's an hour, you can run to the grocery store or something.  If it is all day then it gets really obnoxious really fast.

I think it's fascinating how this has gone from being an autistic kid hosting a lemonade stand for one afternoon to a child with Downs syndrome standing outside for several days screaming nonstop.  Its like a game of telephone!

Yeah, not gonna click it. Won't ever forget it and was one of the reasons that line stuck out to me.

This time the thought of that older story was occumpanied with the mental imagine of a little 9 year old autistic kid crying and holding a melon baller in each of his little clenched fists getting ready to 'ball his eyes out'......

Got to be honest, not one of the happiest of thoughts.

He should have the book thrown at him and do hard time. He defied The Rule of Law! He should have gone through all of the proper channels, as it is he is just a scumbag criminal. Where will it stop? Can just anybody decide to open a lemonade stand now? This is crazy, laws were clearly broken, no one is above the law! Anybody who says otherwise is a filthy apologist for the worst kind of lawless criminal attention whoring pukes!

I'll play devils advocate. Honestly, there are food and safety regulations for a reason. If some kid had a lemonade stand and people became violently ill for whatever reason (the kid sprinkled moms drugs in the lemonade or let it grow bacteria in a jar in the closet for a month) people would be angry. It's only when a kid is cute or developmentally challenged that people give them a free pass. You don't get to break the law because you're a child. Right is right and wrong is wrong.

That picture reminds me of a pr0n I once watched with my ex. The guy was supposed to be a priest -
he had the whole black coat  and pants, clerical collar, etc... He was getting a knobber from some
chick up at the pulpit and as it went on, horns started growing from his forehead. The more the chick
gobbled, the bigger the horns got.

Really bad effects and the Catholic in me was more than a little disturbed.
