Teenager's Frugal Lesson
DJ's high school has a Walgreens next to it. They moved from across the street into a new building at least a year ago. I'm still mad at them and haven't been back since a coupon incident. Well, it wasn't one big incident, it was few. They are rude and coupon-haters. So I decided that they didn't deserve anymore of my money. As you can tell, they have suffered tremendously.
DJ stays after school quite often for tech(lighting for plays and other functions). The kids often walk over to Walgreens and buy drinks. DJ informed me that he would be saving a ton of money if he had a Balance card. He told me to "take one for the team" and get one for him because it's a sin to waste money.
So should I take one for the team or tell him you only have to be 13 to get a Balance card? He's either money conscious and uninformed or a lazy bastard and cheap. Oh and all junk food/drinks comes out of his money not mine.
I'll probably get one just so I can accumulate all of the points and use them for some free stuff around the house but it hurts my heart a little to do it. The only bonus to getting the card for DJ is that he would probably pass the card out to all of his friends so they could get there food at a discount too. That would be one slutty Balance card.
