Brothers Wanted Drinks But The Store Was Empty - What They Did Is A Lesson For All Parents

Two brothers went out shopping one day to grab some drinks, but when they got to the store the shopkeeper wasn't there.

Instead of turning around and going home, the boys went and got their drinks — and in doing so, they went viral.


Why? Because of the integrity and respect they showed the shop owner.

Two teas, please

In a video posted by South China Morning Post, two boys walked into the store and telegraphed to the security camera the 20 yuan ($3) banknote they had to pay for their drinks.

Then, they went and got their drinks — a couple of teas — before the older boy headed back to the cash register to take his change.

The boy was so polite that he even shut the fence on the way out.

Commenters applauded the boys and their parents

The YouTube video now has more than 6 million views.

In the comments, users applauded the boys and their parents.

One wrote: "They're responsible citizens even at such a young age. One day they'll grow out to be hard working and honest adults hope they'll achieve great success and happiness in their life. So proud of them.♡"

Another said: "Credit goes to their parents for upbringing sensible kids <3."

"wow.. respect to their parents. they really know how to raise kids," wrote another commenter.

Doing the right thing deserves applause

Being a good parent doesn't necessarily translate to having good, responsible kids, but teaching them to be respectful can certainly help.

Still, all the credit goes to these boys. They could have easily run in and out with the drinks while covering their faces from the security camera. But they did the right thing, which is sometimes harder to do than the wrong thing.

High school is either one of the best times or one of the worst times of your life, depending on how you lived it. You might have nostalgia for the “good old days,” or you might want to leave that part of your life far, far behind.

For famous country star Jelly Roll, the high school years were especially dramatic. In fact, he’s been quite open in the past about those years of drug addiction and legal battles. Things got so bad that he was actually kicked out of his high school in Nashville, Tennessee.
