    I hope you're only working part time, because you should be in school!

    (Part-time) labour (building, general labour etc) at 14 is bloody hard...Which I am now. <IMG SRC="mad.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> Worth it though when the cash comes in.

    I'm just praying it gets easier, I'm sure it will, especially as I'm not going to be a builder past 18 years old. <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Well why don't you just go to school and work hard so you have a chance of getting a decent job. You probably find it hard because there is no minimum wage. I used to do a paper round in all weather, every morning and evening, with a damn heavy bag, for 3 years. For £15 a week. Seems mad now!

    if anything its as easy now for you as it'll ever be

    I'll have to stand by Eb and support this very strong, it does get harder with age. You get into this concept that if you earn't a bit more then you'd be sweet and when you do your budget goes up and so this goes in a vicious cycle.

    Pay while your young is crap, thats just fact unfortuantly. The one thing that is important is education so you can get a decent job when your older which pays better.

    It does get harder once you leave home and have to budget your house, food, transport, future clothing, going out and leave enough just incase things go 'tits up' and you never have enough money... the joy of stress.. lol!

    Again the main thing is that your working (part time I hope too) and have experienced work outside of school.. <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">
