Now these are really basic questions
Do you have chores that you must do every week?
Do you get paid for doing them?

Yes, currently I have chores that must be done everyday. Mine consist of cleaning the living room, kitchen, my room, my laundry, and feeding my dogs. Every week I get $25-$50 depending on how well the chores were done. If I didn't clean something fully I get $25 and when the house smells and feels good I get $50.

I don't have any set chores, just that me and my brother have to rotate feeding the dogs. Besides that I just have to do stuff when they ask me too like mowing the lawn or shovleing the driveway.
Instead of an allowance I just get money's for movies and stuff when I need it.

I have to feed my budgey, or how most of you say it, "parakeet", I also have to do the dishes every day, that's a bit common, and I have to go to my mom's store every day to help out at the cash register, and then I can take anything for free...
I don't have much work given from my parents, but it's because of school that messes all of my relaxation time... :(

The only "chores" I have are setting/clearing the table, doing dishes, and taking care of my birds and such. And vacuuming, occasionally.

I just clean whatever needs to be cleaned really, and same here I dont get paid getting paid to do chores sounds childish.

My mom leaves a short little list of things my brothers and I have to do after school each day. We don't get paid, but they only take about 10 minutes anyway.

I've never been given chores, most of the stuff the maid does. My parents will occasionally ask me to do little things like clear the plates etc but they're not fixed.
I do get an allowance every month though(For doing nothing, what could be better? XD).

Well thats a bad attitude because when you get older your boss is going to tell you to work extra sometimes and you will no iv'e done my time.

cleaning up the kitchen, feeding wee-frog, walking dog, cleaning room, ironing and sweeping the floors
and i get ten dollars a week for that

Laundry is my job. XD I do it for everybody in the family, and then fold it and deliver it to respective rooms..
I usually just turn up some loud music while doing it, and it isn't that bad. :B
Don't get paid or anything, it's just one of those "responsibility nag nag nag" things. >:[

I have to do anything my dad tells me. Make him drink, feed dogs, hoovering and plenty of other things.
I don't get a single thing for it. He won't give me money when I go out. I have to use my own birthday money on it. He even lets my mum buy all my school clothes and anything to do with clothes. (They are seperated)

I have alot of jobs 8D
Like washing dishes, Cleaning up the rooms, putting away clothes etc.
But i never get paid *sigh*

I get chores every week, but I get money every 2 weeks. Mostly what I have to do is wash and dry the clothes with the dryer. The only cleaning I do is cleaning up my room and stuff because my brothers are such pigs -.-"

Every week, except for the week after I cook, I'm given a duty I have to do Monday-Saturday (or Sunday). In our kitchen, there's bathroom duty, then cleaning the computer and recycling rooms, and the maid duty (kitchen cleaning duty), then cook (cooking the food for our kitchen for a week). Most duties take twenty minutes at the most, minus cooking, which takes hours. On Friday or Saturday, I also do a weekend duty, which is more intense cleaning.
I don't get paid, per se; I don't see any cash from it, but I only pay half of what other dorm students pay because I do chores. That's the beauty of living in a cooperative dorm. :)

I have to dust/vacuum my room every week, do the dishes, take out the recycling bin, vacuum out the car, rake, mow, and shovel snow. and I don't get paid.
I have a single mom working at McDonalds to pay the bills, so I've never gotten an allowance

Do you have chores that you must do every week? Yes
Do you get paid for doing them? No
Reason: 1) I use the stuff - why should my grandma clean up after me? 2) My grandma is in debt, I need to give her money for my keep. 3) I just feel lazy if I dont do it.

I used to get a nice allowance for doing chores around the house like vacuuming, dusting, feeding the dog, washing dishes, mowing, etc... But now I don't have to do much of anything since I'm excused because of homework. Brother is getting my money now nuu. D:
