What Would You Do if Approached by a Minor in Front of a Liquor Store?


And then our actors were met with the most passionate response of the day.

"Excuse me sir, I was wondering if you could do me a huge favor," said our actor.

The local restaurateur was wary from the start.

"You're not asking me for money, are you?" he asked.

"No, I'm not asking for money. I was wondering if you could go in and just get us a 12-pack," the actor said.

The situation quickly turned into every teenager's nightmare as the man began to grill our actors like an interrogator.

"You have a mother and father?" he asked. "Why don't you ask your mother and father? How old are you? What is the law to drink?"

The man demanded the actor's phone number, then threatened to call the police.

"You abused the law," he said.

When we met the local business owner later, he told us that when he saw our actors he was reminded of his own son. We told him that during the course of the day there were some people who had no problem helping out our teens.

His response, "Shame. You don't have to get drunk to have a good time… I don't need alcohol…I need a good friend.""

Overall, the "teens" approached nearly 25 people. Five of them took their money and agreed to buy them beer.

But what would happen when we switched the three male actors with three female ones?

Watch the scenario unfold on "What Would You Do?" Friday at 9 p.m. ET.
