As brilliant as he is when it comes to academics, but he has no ideas about how to handle money. He read about it, but never really learned about money.
I found he had no qualms about buying things that weren't necessary and paying for his friends when they went out to Waikiki.
So we decided to cut out all the free money we've been giving him. He applied to 15 positions from cashier, note taker for the disabled students, stocking person, and even greeter at Walmart.
He couldn't understand why he hasn't received a call yet
. And after calculating his earnings, he said, "I need to work an hour to buy lunch!"
I said, "Welcome to the real world!"
