Hey guys, I'm 17 years old and in need of money. Now before you say "go get a job" well there are a few problems. I don't have a car yet and both my parents work Monday - Friday. I don't know of any job that would allow me to work only on Saturdays or Sunday. I am a shoe collector and I trade and sell shoes but that doesn't make me enough money to pay for my paintball gear. I just don't know what to do...

Get something close to you so you can walk. Only way to get money(legally) is to get a job.

I could do that but I would have to find a path through the woods. Which is my only option as of right now.

Well, being unemployed at that age of 17 means that you cannot afford two expensive hobbies. You're either going to have to make something happen as far as employment, or make a decision as to which hobby you plan on keeping.

 

If you want a job bad enough, you'd have one. You would find a way to make it happen. The woods don't mean shit if there's a paycheck on the other side.

bike?


The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

And yes, Gordon is the sexiest manifestation of "to the front."

both of you beat me too this.

 

The only way you can find out if the place you are trying to work, has hours they need people to work on the weekends, is by going into that place and asking them. When you apply, tell them you would only be able to work weekends. Other than that I would say try to bike to a job.

I think roller skates are a much better option, more controll, less storage space equals more mobile. They generally cost less than a bike, and you can have alot more fun on your feet than on two wheels, if thats your style. You could ask around the neighborhood if anybody has a job to be done, or if they know someone who does. Otherwise there really is not much you can do.

roller skates or roller blades are kinda impractical. you can only really use them on a sidewalk or a path. they wont work if you have to break trail and they certainly wont work in the winter if theres snow. 

 

bikes on the other hand are far more versatile. they're also much faster. and you can get a cheap bike that'll work for $200-$300

You can pick up a cheap bike for WAY less than $200-$300. That's the price for pretty decent brand new bikes. If you buy locally, you can probably find a pretty decent bike for $100

I sold most of them like two weeks ago and now I have some good money for gear.
