Tough to get a license, tougher to find a job
When I was younger, I used to always look forward to being a year older for a different reason (for example, at age 5 I started school, age 11 I started middle school, age 13 I could go to PG-13 movies, etc.).
There isn't a lot of perks to being 16 years old (besides not having to support myself completely), but the one thing I looked forward to was being able to get my driver's license.
