But I think it's unfair that swimming lessons and such carry, the same wieght as cruises, Hawaii, Europe and a tennis court etc.

I that sort of thing just shows how canted towards teenagers this quiz is. I mean, having your own phone line when you're 14? Big deal. When you're 40? Not so much.

I think you shouldn't even have to count swimming lessons. Riding lessons, sure... (which I confess, I did have). But swimming - not so much with the 'spoiled' idea.

I think I would also only count your 'own phone line' if you have an EXTRA one that you don't have to share, or something. Having a phone is pretty much basic functioning in most budgeting schemas. (even though, yes, i know there are people who don't have one)
