my family is well off. my dad used to be gone 5 days a week to support my family. now he and my mom are working to build up our family espresso company. When I turned 16, I got a weekly allowance and have paid for all of my fun times since. I work my ass off during the school year, 3.8 GPA etc., and will be going to a great university so I can continue to live a financial stress-free life. I'd like to graduate from college and go and work with my parents in the business.
the funny thing is how most of the people that live around here used to give me crap once in a while for being a "rich kid" and for driving my bimmer. Little do they know what my parents have sacrificied over the years, the hard work, and my hard work to help and pay for that bimmer. I appreciate every second my parents spent to support our family and want to do the same.
