Ian's budgeting idea



Ian: "Dad, I need a haircut."

Me: "Then go get one. You have a bike."

Ian: "I need money. Oh, I have an idea! How about you just leave a bunch of twenties on the fridge and then if I, I mean if you, need something I can just grab a twenty and go get it."

Me: "What is a bunch?"

Ian: "Like seven or ten. Whatever is easier."

Me: "I have a better idea. Lets keep the twenties in your wallet and just use the ones you earn."

Ian: "I like my idea better..."

Yeah, it's cute how teenagers think the world's monetary system revolves around their hearts desire.
