Kids are so funny. My daughter begged and begged for a paper route. She hadn't begged for something this much since she begged for a puppy.
Well, just like the puppy I bought for her, the paper route was abandoned as well. I took the route over since it put a few extra bucks in the family bill pot. It also provides an opportunity to write off some expenses associated with the route.
What is funny is that about half the other carriers I see every morning say their kids did the same thing. All were glad they were introduced to paper routes though. Many express the best part being the people the meet and the tax write offs.
