same here. but lately i've been putting my checks from work into the bank for college so between checks i occasionally ask my mom for $10 or$20 to cover the off weeks. (almost 18 btw).
don't sweat it man i'm 22 and unemployed during a recession. it's either take money from moms duke and pops or hustle till I get a job. Im reallynot tryina go the 2nd route unless it was my absolutely last resort, cuz I'm not tryina go to the bing. But I rather do that then be homeless
16.. had my first job plus reselling sneakers.... When i feel i need to ask i let something go. sneakers,car parts etc. Since i recently was let go from my jobive been selling most of my car parts
had to let go of some fully pollished Enkei 92's 15x7 +20 offset. It hurt man.. but i still don't ask..reselling sneakers isn't really doing well right now so i just sell what i can until i can get a job. If your going to school i thinks its all good situation is a bit different since my stepfather is the breadmaker... i don't feel right asking my mom for money.. even if its for school..
18 stopped taking money from them, but I dont pay rent and still eat my Moms food. still borrow some money from here and there when i haven't cashed mycheck yet.

i never understood how someone has never had a job...even if your parents have money...unless you're a superstar athlete makes no sense to me...
My mom gives me money sometimes when I don't even need it, she's just like "have a good time."
I'll never stop [Puff Daddy]Eh, eh[/Puff Daddy] even when I'm rich and well off. I'll take money from anyone who's just giving it to me. Why?Cuz money comes and money goes, it's all this player knows.

EDIT - Now that I think about it my mother still takes money from my grandmother, they're not setting a good example if they're trying to ween me offof them financially.
I'll never stop. The fact that they are loaded makes me feel guiltless. Also the fact that I would rather see the joy in their face upon helping me outwith a few bucks now, as opposed to me getting rich with inheritance money.
I work with a lady who is about 55 and she has never moved out of her parents house, her dad just bought her a new whip
