I have this slight obsession with Grape Fanta Zero. Yes, I am well aware that soda isn't the best for you, but we all have our weaknesses.

Typically at least once a week I would go to Burger King and get a large grape Fanta Zero. Something about those fountain drinks. But I have been incredibly sad the last couple of weeks because when I pull up...disappointment rains over my soul.

This is the first sign I see in the drive-through:

Ok, so it's closed...I can clearly see that, but then I pull around and see THIS sign:

So it is temporary? Or is it like closed for good? HELP! I mean seeing businesses in town with short hours or being closed on random days has become the new normal, especially in our area. BUT I just need to know if I need to break up with grape Fanta.

I did find this, but then the signs should be changed? Or no?

As I make my tear-filled exit from the "kinda closed" Burger King, I see the sign for hiring and starting wages.

Which makes me think even more thoughts. If I was a 15-year-old and could only work a few hours a week because of school and extracurricular activities, I would think $18-$20 per hour would be GREAT!

You don't pay rent, you don't pay health coverage, and most likely your parents either drop you at work or have bought you the vehicle you take to get there. So what is the deal? Are teens just not working these days? No judgment, just seriously baffled.

I babysat when I was young and then got my first "real job" at a pet store when I was 15. I was making an incredible $5.85 per hour. Let me tell you, I was RICH. Ok not really, but it was a good job, and they worked with my school schedule.

So to think if I was 15 years old now, and someone said, "want to make $18 an hour?" I would jump all over that!

Ok, so is Burger King closed FOR-EV-ER, or is it temporary?
