    when you dine and dash at big boy even though the waitress was hitting on you. when your toe is missing half its skin and you keep telling yourself its alright and not going to the doctor. when you dont think of it as stealing anymore, its just going to the store to pick somthing up.

    I realize poverty is all in perspective for certain folks and college students, but I thought this story was a good way to sober up sometimes. One of my professors was talking about how he hears kids talk about how poor they are all day long. Now he understands the joke the same as I do, but he used to do social work so he says,

    [paraphrased]

    You want to know what poor is? Y'all haven't even seen poor in your life! I mean you can bitch and moan about how you don't have enough money for a slice of pizza, but that ain't nothing. I was talking with a woman...Hispanic, she lived in the South Bronx. This woman had five kids...you ever seen a single mother with five kids? It's like...you ever met someone that just looked tired? I mean dog tired, and you know they got that look all day long, like they just wake up tired? So because of a few misunderstandings, the school thought the daughter was being abused, and after further understandings, they took her away. Well mom had to go to court to get her back. They assigned her to the court in Borough Hall (southern tip of manhattan). So I tell her that she has to be there by 8am and please please don't be late. I show up at 8 and here she comes.........holding with two toddlers in her arms. I'm like shit......so I ask her how she is and I come to find out that she didn't have enough money for train fare ($1.50) and couldnt get a baby sitter...so she made sure that she got up early enough, and the woman walked...This woman walked from the South Bronx to the lowest point in Manhattan, with two toddlers. Now that my children, is poor.
