Best answer: Actually, you can get a job at 14. Lots of skaters do. When I was 12 I was coaching the baby CanSkaters at my rink in exchange for ice time, but other girls that did it chose to get paid instead. Though with your poor attitude, I doubt you'd be able to keep one. Why not offer to mow neighbours lawns/shovel... show moreBest answer: Actually, you can get a job at 14. Lots of skaters do. When I was 12 I was coaching the baby CanSkaters at my rink in exchange for ice time, but other girls that did it chose to get paid instead. Though with your poor attitude, I doubt you'd be able to keep one. Why not offer to mow neighbours lawns/shovel their driveways (depending on your current weather)? Walk dogs? You could even ask your parents if they have any jobs that need to be done that they'd pay you for (i.e. cleaning out the garage/attic). If you're willing to go out and look, you'll find lots of opportunities.

In the meantime, if your skates are breaking down, you can use skate tape (or duct tape, I've heard that works too though I never tried it myself) to add support to your skates. But if they still fit and haven't broken down, I wouldn't panic just yet about new skates. You can also buy lightly used second-hand skates for far less than brand new skates.

Edit: unfortunately, being 'hot blooded' doesn't fly in the world of employers, especially as a young adult. I can be a bit of a diva myself, but when you're young and working, you have to stick a smile on your face and just deal with it. If you realise you have a poor attitude, it's something that's easy to work on! Start by not taking insults so personally; there's nothing to be gained from it.
