This conversation took place between Stef and I in the car:
Stef: Could you pay me $20 if I don't whine for a week?
Me: What if instead you helped mom around the house?
Stef: What about $10?
Me: I'm sure if I stood by the TV when it's time for bed, I'd win the bet. I'd rather you help mom out around the house; I'll give you an allowance.
Stef: Yeah, but I'll get like 25 cents a day just to set the table; it'll take me 4 days just to get one dollar.
Me: Maybe, but when I was a kid I didn't get an allowance at all.
Stef: Yeah, I don't get one either.
