    Like a lot of teenagers, I'm broke. And I'm at the stage where I'm sick of leeching off of my parents every time I want to buy something, or do something. So I'm starting to sell candy/gum/food in and out of school. So the question is, if you were at school what would you want?

    Chocolate bar black market is really popular at my school, and the sellers make loads of money from it so probably that! They buy 4 packs for £1 and sell them for 50p each doubling what they spent

    I read on one forum this kid was making $300 every two WEEK. It's amazingly ridiculous. Did he get punished for it?

    His mum got a phone call, she wasn't concerned though because turned out she was buying most of the chocolate for him to sell XD
