Heard: Eat Fresh ... Fast

I'll admit, I'm a Hilltern this Summer. However, I'm a little older than most and I've been reading this blog for some time now, so I'm well aware that my red badge means absolutely nothing. Earlier today, while enjoying a nice Subway sandwich on my lunch break, I overheard the following conversation in response to the long line:

Kid 1: "We should just flash our staff IDs and cut in front of this line"
Kid 2: "Do you think that would work?"
Kid 1: "Yea, we'll just make sure we find some tourists and cut in front of them."
Girl: "John, I doubt anyone will care about your badge."
Kid 1: "They should! I work for Senator X from the state of Y! I shouldn't have to wait like this."

He was completely serious.
