    been said, but shoplifting to eat.

    selling drugs to make the rent payment.
    a lot of times ending up more fucked financially because of it.

    robbery.
    not proud of it now.

    growing up i didnt get nice shit, so when i finally was old enough to make money i became ocd as fuck about keeping any gear i had purchased in tip top shape.
    still do this to this day, constantly cleaning kicks, no matter what vehicle i own any little scrape or mark bothers me for weeks afterward.

    turning the oven on when the furnace fucks up in the winter in an apartment.
    not sure about some of you southern cats, but up north that shit gets real.
    shit goes hand in hand with the 5 blankets thing.





    thankfully, im at a point in my life now where this shit is no longer an occurrence.

    i dont forget though.

    Yo, I didn't grow grow up up poor poor
    But once you get grown and out on your own
    Bills upon bills upon bills is what you have
    Before you get your check then you've already spent half
    See I make money, money doesn't make me
    I'm a reflection of my section and my section's 8


    I had the opposite experience where I grew up (lower)middle class, but as the years passed, the scrub of my step dad began dragging the family down with him.
    He taught me how to be a poor man's rich man.
    Going to high end resale/estate shops, and dumpster/alley diving in the rich areas of Chicagoland.
    I'll give him credit for getting Brooks Brothers suits for $10, and antique furniture for almost nothing.

    He fucked up a few get rich quick deals where he ended up putting our familly a million in debt. Lost the house, cars, dignity, basically everything.
    Repo men, harassed by bill collectors, shit was beat.

    My mom had to change her name, declare bankruptcy and support the family on a catholic school teacher's salary.. that was getting garnished.
    I still to this day don't know exactly what he did, and I never want to know. He's still a scrub leeching off my mom.

    hahaha. just calling it as i seent it. i feel like people on ch 0 feel a constant need to prove how hard they are, chill. it's channel 0.

    anyways,
    i was raised thrifty, not necessarily poor.

    never stole shit to support anyone but myself. stole to support vandalism and a nasty drinking habit.

    never sold drugs.

    i AM guilty of keeping things clean as fuck. friends think im anal but if i pay $100 for a pair of sneakers, please believe im not walking on the grass with 'em. i only beat up shoes that cost less than $40-50. you can usually find me at discount stores, and please believe i clip coupons especially for back to school shit/business formalwear. my prom tuxedo cost around $45, original price? $250.

    i dont own designer shit with the exception of nikes, never really had polo or any shit like that unless it was a hand me down. I had some crazy hand me downs in the mid 90s that i didnt save, sadly ... cross colors and a starter jacket or two.

    a ton of my clothes are blank/plain color because i cant be bothered to pay extra for brands.
