When I was a young man, I really wanted an expensive fishing reel really bad but did not have any money. So I asked some my neighbors if they needed help(with my parents’ permission) ; and cut their grass, raked leaves and even painted a fence, I also asked my dad if he had any special projects I could work at for some pay. Before I knew it, I had money not just for my reel, but a new rod and tackle box!

This path will help reach your goal much faster, and is much more rewarding than begging

good luck

My dad worked in a coal mine when he was 4, for twelve cents an hour. He was too young to haul or hammer anything, so he was used as a shovel.

Dad stories rule.

Now my post may have sounded like a motivational Urban Dad story, but it’s very true; and that philosophy carried me very well through life. In recent days I see more and more folks with their hand out, expecting a hand-out. I never had my hand out for nothing; well, …except to my wife when I want a new plant. :roll:

lol ya im the same way mostly because i would have never gotten anything anyways

but ya my girlfriend is buying me some plant stuff for valintines, im completly obsessed about my plants now, kinda woried she might even be a little jellous :lol:

but anyways its much better to work for the things you want, that way if you destroy them it directly affects you, instead of just looking for another hand out you have to learn what you did wrong, work for the money to do it again and do it right
