Working the midway

It seems like all over certain parts of the country, teenagers participate in a Summer ritual of working a stand or trailer at the local or county fair. It builds memories and character and sometimes gets you a free damaged Spongebob Squarepants stuffed creature made by borderline slave labor in tiny towns in some Godforsaken part of China.
