The store owner marked out a hopscotch board in multi-colored tape leading to the sales window. When the girl returned, she immediately began using the new store hopscotch board.

Once the board was in place, the proprietor noticed an amazing thing happening in the store. It started with a grown man looking a little nervous and glancing around the store. The owner thought he might be checking for cameras to steal something. What he did next shocked the owner. The man started jumping along the hopscotch board!

With total disregard for “how it looked,” the grown man hopped along the hopscotch squares like a seasoned pro! And he smiled! But that was just the beginning of the surprise for the store owner. As more people entered the store, more and more of the adult customers took the opportunity to hop to the cash register.
