    Re: How did you make money as a kid?

    I worked on construction sites when I was 16 and 17 during the summer holidays. I got about 10DM per hour (about 6USD) but since it was illegal employment it was all tax free. Sometimes I got 2.000DM in a month which was a huge amount of money for a 16 year old kid.

    Spent it all on stupid things (beer, bought stuff for girls, and drugs and PC games) and was broke again at the end of the summer.

    Great days.
