I live in the UK so I don't think this rule applies to me, but I can't help but join in. I'm 16, been working on the family farm since I was 10. I get up at 5 in the morning to milk the cows. I've been up to 1am hauling silage. I've hauled little bales of straw and hay, by hand - manual labour at it's best - since I was 11.
Honestly, compared to the others my age I would say I'm much better set for the future - I have lots of hard earned cash,I have 6 years experience - and counting - in agriculture. I get good grades at school. I'm fit and healthy, because of all the fresh air and exercise I get.
And, lets face it, I'm a favourite with all the boys round by me - I'm set to inherit a large dairy farm, I have a fair bit of money and I'm fit and attractive, and willing to sit in a tractor all day.
What's wrong with a bit of manual labour?! Perhaps if more 16 year olds worked on farms, obesity levels would decrease?
