A mother has been blasted online after revealing she made a roadblock to force drivers to stop at her children’s lemonade stand after multiple people drove straight past.
A screenshot of the mother’s post has been doing the rounds on the internet, with people branding the woman ‘entitled’ due to her actions.
In the initial post, the woman said how her children had set up a lemonade stand and were trying to sell their wares – but cars were driving straight past the stall.
The mother then took matters into her own hands and created a ‘barricade’ in the road – which meant the drivers had to stop by the stand.
The initial post read: “Thank you to all who showed support for the twins today! As a general rule of etiquette for those who don’t know: when you see children out having a lemonade stand, you stop.
“The lemonade most likely sucks and it’s probably warm (possibly a bug floating in the ice), but you stop anyway because the children are cute and they don’t understand why you aren’t stopping when they are clearly asking you to stop!
“At one point I had to put up a barricade, forcing drivers to pull over and acknowledge my children. It should never have to come to this! Be a better citizen!”
A screenshot of the Facebook post has been shared on Reddit, where internet users were quick to question the woman’s actions.
One user said: “Pretty much the only time I wouldn’t stop for a kid’s free lemonade stand is if their crazy mother had the nerve to block off traffic and try to force me to – I’m also pretty sure that’s illegal.”
While a second added: “I’m sorry, she barricaded the street to force cars to stop next to her kids’ lemonade stand and expected a good reaction?”
“I’d be very likely to stop at a kids lemonade stand” a third person commented. “But I would absolutely expect the lemonade be at least cool, preferably cold and absolutely not have a bug in it.”
