I think some of you nurgas could learn a thing or two from this...

The quick and easy

 

5) You develop a taste for shitty food

 

4) Extra money has to be spent right goddamn now!!

 

3) You want to go overboard on gift giving

 

2) You become an excessive bean-counter

 

1) You think with the short term in mind

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.

Empty cool whip container = Tupperware

Empty juice jugs = Flavor-aid jug (too poor for Cool-aid)

Recycle bins @ office park by house = endless supply of 1 sided drawing paper

Milk crates = furniture

 

I'm sure there is more but it's early.

An offensive comment about how awesome not being poor in the first place is?

 

A prideful remark about how much being poor sucks, but how it made me realer?

 

Which one will get me more props???

Yeah, I've always thought going overboard with the gift giving on Christmas is a white trash trait.
