Amazing! Before I met Mrs. pallis I went with a girl whose daddy had multiple millions, and she was as broke as I was. We worked at the same low paying job. I never heard her complain, or ask her father for anything, and I always respected her for it.
The poor little rich girl in the story should have banked half the allowance and she could still have owned a very nice home outright.
Whatever you buy with money someone gives you is yours.
