Gotta go do a few things - VA, HHS, church, knocking on doors for a Democratic candidate, but I just found this posting by John Scalzi from 2005 that is just too true…

Being Poor
SEPTEMBER 3, 2005 JOHN SCALZI 571 COMMENTS
Being poor is knowing exactly how much everything costs.

Being poor is getting angry at your kids for asking for all the crap they see on TV.

Being poor is having to keep buying $800 cars because they’re what you can afford, and then having the cars break down on you, because there’s not an $800 car in America that’s worth a damn.

Being poor is hoping the toothache goes away.

Being poor is knowing your kid goes to friends’ houses but never has friends over to yours.

Being poor is going to the restroom before you get in the school lunch line so your friends will be ahead of you and won’t hear you say “I get free lunch” when you get to the cashier.

and ever so much more…
