A lot of millionares gets there by penny pinching. I was reading an article on a millionare and she still cuts out coupons and lives in a normal size house. Just because you have money does not mean you need to blow it on wasting power and gas.

Plus saving electricity is good for the enviroment,lol.

HAHAHAHAHAAH sorry i just find the thought of having to pay your dad to pick you up very funny. If I had to do that I would laugh hysterically (and then cry as I cough up the cash)...

I called him a spoiled brat because he is complaing he was to turn on his computer. I wasn't calling him a spoiled brat in the sence he has lots of things but in the sence he must be waited on hand and foot if pushing a button and waiting a 1min is something to complain about.

Well it matters how far he has to walk. if he lives within walking distnace then he should pay his dad to be picked up. i know people that walk almost an hour to get to school.
