    hi,
    Due to being in full time education and other comittments i do not have a job which is fine as i still live at home.Instead of asking my parents for money as i want to be some what responsible and if i do ask them i tend to get some slack for it -I sell clothes that i no longer wear or do not like on eBay, this way i get to have money that i need without having to ask my parents or ''scrounge'' off them;


    I am able to buy new clothes and get rid of them when the is no longer interest in them - I have enough clothes...I can't understand why my parents thinks im greedy in always wanting to have money when this is my only income available to pay for:clothes,nights out and everyday essentials otherwise i have 0 balance in account which is not cool

    I think thats a far better option then asking for hand outs. They need to stop being so judgey.

    thanks, it's annoying to being constantly judged and it makes you feel bad when your doing something nothing wrong...It's best to brush it off than bother
