If you ever let your child go out and sell some cold water to help people cool off on a hot day, you might want to be prepared for some challenges. Erin Austin didn’t see them coming until a woman called the police over her 8-year-old daughter. The video of this incident has already been viewed almost 10 million times!
The mother decided to capture Alison Ettel, who was allegedly on the phone with the police because the girl didn’t have a permit to sell water. Therefore, Erin dubbed the woman #PermitPatty. In the video, shared by the girl's cousin, you can clearly see that the woman ducks when she realizes she's being recorded:
Jordan Rodgers, the daughter, doesn’t understand why would anyone call the police, as she was trying to raise money for a family trip to Disneyland. The mother confesses she has just lost her job, so she can't afford the vacation. That’s why her daughter volunteered to help. Luckily, this video has been seen by a generous person, who bought 4 tickets for Jordan's family so that they could go to Disneyland together!
Another side of the coin
First off, Alison 'PermitPatty' Ettel, asked the little girl and her mother to move around the corner, as she couldn’t work because of them yelling. Reportedly, Austin reacted pretty aggressively and told her to call the police, which was exactly what Ettel did, but not to report them. According to GMA, the woman simply wanted to know if the activity was legal.
People’s reaction can be very harsh
Now, Allison Ettel, the CEO of Treat Well, a company that sells medical cannabis for pets, is receiving death threats and all sorts of negative comments.
If you can call the police on kids selling water, kids mowing a piece of your lawn, and people bbq’ing in the Park.. sweet baby Jesus why cant you call the police on people popping firecrackers on July the damn 9th!? This is the true crime! 😂😭 priorities people! #permitpatty ?— Elizabeth 💫 (@naturally_ee) July 10, 2018
There have been hundreds of other comments as well. Here are some of the most noteworthy:
Good Lord! It's the equivalent of a child's lemonade stand. In my community, it's practically against the (unwritten) law to pass by without buying whatever a child is selling.— PerSisters (@PERSlSTERS) June 23, 2018
As a mailman I wish I could find people selling water in the streets instead of going to the stores.— Carlos Escobar (@CarlosE12815033) June 25, 2018
What do you think of this case? Would you buy some cold water for $2 from little Jordan? Did we forget the lemonade stands from back in the days?
