    well im freaking 14 dont have my working papers yet and wont be getting a job till the summer (mom said sooo). And i NEED a way to earn money to get GH3 and I also want RE4 (or 5 if it comes out when i have money and anyone have the date btw thanks). So my neighborhood is dead and like doesnt have people rake leaves so thats out of the question i really dunno what to do the only thing i can think of is like when i go to the movies or w/e with my gf just pocket the money i get from my parents. I get no allowance anymore for some reason :mad5: so idk what to do any REALISTIC suggestions?

    EDIT:Sorry if this was in the wrong place lol i didnt know what to put it in move if needed thanks

    ah I was in that pickle for a while. I :shocked: cant get a job right now either (I'm 16) because my parents said no due to bad grades (I have 4 As and 2 Bs?).:sick: I got out of it over the summer by going up to this town north of me for a few weeks during summer where my Aunt and Uncle own a coffee shop, and I made enough there for a DS w/ MPH and MKDS, plus enough for a Wii+TP. but for you? If you have ANY family members that own a business, try there. If any of your neighbors have dogs, try picking up the poop for them (I live in AZ where its 105 degrees at midnight during summer, so people were more than willing for me to pick it up for them). Try mowing the lawn also, I made a fortune when my neighbors moved away and couldnt sell their house and paid me to take care of it.

    start like a lemonade stand or something. or better yet, when it starts to snow(if it snows in your area) go to peoples houses and ask if they want their sidewalks shoveled. thats a good way to make some money.

    i still say you beg.

    i know this kid who got a speeding ticket, took a red plastic cup, wrote "pay my speeding ticket" in sharpie on it, and within 2 weeks he had a 75 dollar speeding ticket payed off. just from walking around school, people thought it was funny, i threw in a dollar myself. i felt bad cause the kid was unemployed.

    I only work summers, but i work 40 hours a week ALL SUMMER, and use that money to get through the school year. But during the rest of the year, most of my revenue comes from Poker games.


    The only logical answer I see here is to sell organs. You know you really don't need both your kidneys, right?

    sell your body to 40 year old men, this seems to be the only option, no?
