#26 When you grow up poor…

… your Dad decides to cut down every pine tree in your back yard because “if we have another storm like last night one of them is sure to fall straight through the roof”.

Instead of hiring someone to do it he’ll just cut them down himself because “they’re just trees” and as he chops he’ll make you push the tree trunk to make it fall away from the house.

Then the tree will fall on your house.

And then you’re grounded for a month to think about why you should have kept that pine tree from falling on your house.
