Did you have to do anything for the allowance, or what were the stipulations of you receiving the allowance? How much was it?
This question brought to you by my boss joking about how her son only ever calls her when he needs money. He called her today and she was saying "Why can't he wait until Saturday? That's when he gets his allownace every week." This shocked the hell out of me (well, it shouldn't. They baby him SO much). Her son is 20, and still gets an allowance. He has a part-time job and goes to community college. And has an allowance. Oy vey.
