"Jeremy went on to explain, "It's the supply chain! OMFG! My lemon transport guy was at the port 16 hours! The lemons ended up 2 days late and I had to source lemons in the meantime from eBay.  $12 each, plush shipping!  I had to overnight them, so it was another $35 for that!  Then my juicer called out sick with the Covid, and now Code Enforcement wants me to add 2 handicap parking spaces and a ramp!  I tell ya, they've really got me by the coullions!"

It takes an especially despicable type of criminal to steal from an 11 year old. I hope he gets caught passing bad bills, they link it to this crime, and the guys on his cell block find out.

The video has more information - the boy was also selling sodas, cotton candy, and popcorn. The reporter says the total was about $20. I'm guessing the article writer didn't bother watching it to make sure the story was correct.

These aren't 5 year olds with cups of lemonade on the lawn selling to the neighbors while mom watches from the background -- it looks like they're just reselling bottles of stuff you'd pay like $1.50 or $2 in a store.   What I don't get is that they're standing, without exaggeration, directly in front of a gas station convenience store, along a large, busy street near a highway entrance.  Who is buying from them instead of just going into the store for the exact same stuff?  Besides, apparently, people looking to pass counterfeit bills easily.

Just yesterday, I saw some guy selling "sausages" from a grill in a parking lot of a place that has been abandoned for years, and this was in a relatively rural area. No customers were there, and not a lot of cars driving by. $7 each, I think, which might be a good price I guess?
Who knows if they really have permission to be there.
I don't think it's anything new. I guess people buy from them because they view it as charity and better than straight begging.

Unpopular opinion...but these sh*ts are beneficial. Showing people, with example, of how easy it is to screw someone over is a valuable life lesson. And done over trivial things, while dickish in nature, results in minimal serious harm.

For $.10 or whatever, you learned that...

1 - Some people are dicks
2 - The honor system of collecting payment is flawed
3 - Running a business has unexpected overheads, like theft and failure to pay

And it made you far less likely to fall victim to a similar crime in the future.

This assumes he knows it was counterfeit. Money changes hands an average of 6 times before it makes it to a bank, and it's generally not checked anywhere in the chain. I can pretty much guarantee that at some point in your life, you've received a counterfeit bill, not recognized it as such, and spent it elsewhere.

The guy you need to go after is the one who actually made the funny money. This -may- be the same guy, but likely isn't.

No. Trying is selling ice cold bottled water in the parking lot of a just finished concert.

These kids a scumbags.  Glad they ran into some as scummy as them.
Damn shame they didn't get busted Trying to pass it.
Next time.

fark all people who resell crap with no explanation for the price gouge.

[Our ice cold water was only a dollar, in a parking lot. It's going to take 15 minutes to get out. You just left a hot concert.  This is definitely something people want and the price is a fair deal .  Not a rip off.  fark people who support ripping off consumers]

Who stops to buy a $15 lemonade with $100 bill to get change when you could just go buy a pack of cigarettes for $15 at the convenience store?   Oh yeah, the convenience store is going to pull out one of those pens and realize it's counterfeit.

Some kids had a lemonade stand in my neighborhood recently and I was tempted to stop just to make them smile by buying something, but I didn't really want a lemonade and I didn't really feel like stopping. If they had been charging $15 I think I would have just gotten back in my car and made them frown. I have no idea what they were charging.

And if I had nothing smaller than a $100 bill I would not have bothered because I wouldn't expect them to have change.

If they were charging more than $5 for a lemonade it had better be to raise money for a good cause or at least really good lemonade.

The next time you see a kid selling lemonade on the street you should walk up, kick over the stand, and drink all the lemonade.  It's an indoctrination of the capitalist regime and all children should know how evil and exploitative it is.

How dare they mark up the lemonade?  Climate change profiteers.
