    you think eating at applebees or the olive garden is living the highlife

    you eat ramen for every meal even though you know it will eventually lead to you having a massive stroke

    no A/C so you use a spray bottle to cool yourself down in the summer.

    no running water? no problem, steal it from your neighbors hose.

    lock on the door is busted and you are too broke to have it fixed, send your kids through the window so they can unlock it from the inside.

    not really habits, but whatever. i know i wasn't the only one doing this.

    daily life without a full understanding of the quadrivium

    ingestion of poison food all throughout

    becoming a victim of constant mind control

    being trapped into a cycle of economic fear

    dealing with routine traumas, many of which develop into a neurosis during later years

    This should be retitled to

    The 5 Stupidest Habits You Develop Growing Up Poor In The Developed World

    In the under-developed world it would be more like:

    Bathe once a month if you can find water without visible life forms swimming in it

    Eat food that has been cooked in oil that has been recycled and used for the last 18 months, which you bought on the street from some one with even less money than you

    Eat food with cardboard mixed in to it to stop the pain in your stomach for a few hours

    develop bladder infections that you can't afford medicine for after using underwear that was worn by three people before yourself

    Die in winter.

    I've witnessed all of these things and I fucking hate it because now I can't bring myself to laugh at poverty any more. Stupid poor people, ruin everything.
