What did you do for money when you were a teenager?

Recommended Posts

You know what I'm talking about, that age where you're too young for a job but too old to have your parents buy you everything, when you were that old how did you get your money?

Well, I am a teen. So stuff I do is like:

 

  • Mow the Lawn
  • Shovel

And that's pretty much it.

Uhh, I came here to look for ideas, hahaha. First thing I can do is sell some video games(jesus christ). Unfortunately in 2014 everything cool just had to come. Freakin Godzilla movie, RWBY figures, conventions, cosplay materials that I will possibly need, and some other games/consoles. God, this year has too much stuff coming out

I didn't :D My parents bought what I needed for me until I could get a job. Key word: NEEDED

 

Never anything I wanted. X3 Just the necessities.

 

However, I guess doing some minor chores for a movie ticket might count?

When i was an earlier teen I worked at McDonald's for 3 years, it's the literal worst. And from 18-19 I worked at a factory, which sounds not so good, but it is great and I got great money.

I worked with my parents such as recycling and part time to at least earn a living.

 

As of now, I'm awaiting my ID for a better and more financed job.

Right now, at the age of 17, I'm sweeping floors and keep an autoshop organized, sometimes getting to do an occasional tire rotation or oil change.

 

Today, though, I had to move my bosses' old weight-lifting set into storage...

 

...yeahh, was a looonnnngggg day, and I'm sore af :(

Last summer I worked on a corn field.

Getting up to reach the first bus to reach the bus that takes you to the next county where you walk among crops for ~6 hours is.....well, actually it was more fun than it sounds :D

There is always someone to talk with and you get a nice salary. (well, at least among other teens' slaraies, that is)

I mowed lawns.... 30 bucks a lawn per week, and 7 lawns netted me 210 a week during the ten weeks of summer.

 

Spent it all on weed, video games, and the ice cream truck.

Sigh. I am a teenager. Just one year and 4 months until I can legally work. It seems like forever. My parents expect me to do a lot of things, and the only thing I get paid for is babysitting.

I'm still a teenager and I do chores and odd jobs around the house for money.

Got part-time work and was in a relationship where the guy gave me money for anything I wanted.

(No, I wasn't using him. He offered me money and I almost always declined his offers. We're long since broken up).

I had a paper route for a while before I could get a "real" job.  I worked at Burger King, then for a place that delivered those advertising flyers that you find on your door (yeah, I was "that" person... cluttering up your yard, getting bitten by dogs... good times, good times), then I worked at McDonald's, then I tried telemarketing (it was horrible and I was not at ALL good at it).

 

My parents never gave me an allowance or let me do chores for money (I had a metric f*ckton of chores, but didn't get paid for them) so I got pretty good at making birthday and Christmas money from my grandparents last.

Last summer I worked on a corn field.
