10 Year-Old Summering In The Hamptons With Full-Time Nanny, Filet Mignon Dinners, Private Jet Rides Doesn't Think Doubling His Allowance Is Too Much To Ask

What’s your allowance? It’s $350 a month, but if I run out, I’ve memorized my mom’s credit card number so I’m covered. What do you spend it on? Lunch, Starbucks, gadgets. I also do Postmates three times a week in the city. My mom never knows it’s coming until it arrives. In the Hamptons, I like Surf Shop, but I don’t know how to surf. What do you think your allowance should be? About $700 a month seems fair. You have a credit card. What kind? I have a Gold AmEx. Sometimes at stores they question me, like when I was buying chocolate recently, and they looked to my nanny to see if she was going to pay, but I gave them my credit card and they said, “Aren’t you a little young for this?” Do you pay your credit card bill yourself? My mom does. I don’t even look at it. I am too young for that. [FWD]
