#34 When you grow up poor…

… you tend to skimp on things you buy.

“No you can’t have a cheeseburger. We have cheese at home. Order a hamburger and you can put cheese on it when we get there.”

“Any Drinks with that?”

“Yes, five waters and one Coke please.” Then you commence to all take turns filling up at the soda machine from the same cup.

Sometimes, you’ll take your glasses off, put on a hat and a jacket, just so you can go to the same sample cart more than once when you’re at the grocery store on Saturdays.
