Anyone else have this same problem?
I'm 16 almost 17, and it used to be that I would go work with my dad for money. But ever since I've told my family my plans for getting a motorcycle, they've stopped supporting me in saving money because they are convinced that doing so would be the equivalant of assisting me in suicide. They wont even take me for my liscensing, however they've said "sure, if you can ever save up enough money for a bike then we'll see", thinking that I will never be able to save up enough money. Of course being as stubborn as I am (and a little bit out of spite I suppose), I've restrained myself from spending at all this past month. I had my resume all typed up and my friend was offering me a part-time job at this bodyshop he used to work at, though he asked me "why do you need money so bad?". Well I told him about my plans for buying a motorcycle by next season, and he started talking like my mom..."you're gonna kill yourself!". So there goes the job. I still have $600 from my...well, original $600 after not spending, nor earning this month.
*sigh* so I've been scrounging for a full-time summer job, or a long term part-time job all this time and I've came up with nothing. McDonalds wont even take me. Anyone else been through this problem of having unsupportive friends/family while trying to get a sportbike? I could really use some motivation right now
