Girl's Divisive Method To Make More Pocket Money Goes Viral

A girl's ballsy method for making more pocket money has gone viral - dividing social media users in the process.

Eric Hulse took to Twitter to explain how his daughter had made $110 (£79) on her lemonade stand in just an hour.

He wrote: "My daughter made $110 on her lemonade stand today, in like an hour.

"Turned out people were handing her $5s and $10s and she was just assertively saying thank you for the tip, and not offering change."

Now, if you were running a bona fide business of the grown-up variety, this sort of strategy wouldn't get you far.

But when you're a child with an entrepreneurial attitude, it's a little different.

Indeed, many people heaped praise on the wheeler-dealer.

One person wrote: "If you hand a $10 to a child at a lemonade stand and just assume they have the cash to give you change ... you don't deserve change. Good for her."

Another said: "She should change her last name from Hulse to Hustle."

A third added: "The grown a** adults in these replies crying that kids are manipulating them has me in tears, they probably just don't know how change works and as a grown a** adult if y'all let a child bully you into keeping your change then they earned it."

However, others didn't think her business model should be applauded.

One person said: "This is an example of No Good Deed Goes Unpunished.

"Here, nice folks wanted to do the kid a favour, and they were manipulated out of their own hard- earned dollars.

"Dad needs a moral compass to teach the kid. This is nothing to be proud of."

Another commented: "...Where does ripping people off usually land one in the long term?"

A third agreed: "By not offering change really puts pressure on people that can't afford to not get change.

"Forcing them to ask makes it hard on them and the person collecting the money. Change should be given without assuming it's a tip."

Come on guys - when life gives you lemons, make lemonade (and overcharge for it).
