She just started working as a gymnastics coach, and just got her first paycheck- $50 gross, $43ish net.

She didn't notice the taxes, SS, Medicare taken out. I asked if she saw how much was taken out for Federal tax. No, she said.

Me: About 10%
Girl: Wat?

Me: Did you see they took money out for Social Security, and Medicare?
Girl: Wat? That's for old geezers, why am I paying for that?

Me: Well, you're paying for those who are on it now.
Girl: I guess this is why everyone hates the government, because they're taking our money. Is why you old guys are into politics.

Me: Yep.

Good job dad, my daughter takes after her mother and ignores it as much as possible.

I wish I could've posted the avatar, that one of our members has, that has a fat lady saying "Wat" after each of my girl's responses. It was priceless.

Ironically your 14 year old is now "the rich" and is in the top 40% of wage earners.

Since she has never had any income before this job, she definitely thinks she's rich.
