Things Only Poor Teens Understand About Poverty
up poor for me meant having one pair of shoes per school year, eating
no frills food made from the same staple ingredients, and earning my own
money to buy toys my friends got from their parents for "being good". My
family wasn't so poor we went hungry, and we could afford basic
electronics and electricity so we weren't bored, but I had a few friends
who were so poor their lifestyle seemed bizarre to me.
Which is why I appreciated and enjoyed reading this article revealing 5 Things Only Poor People Understand About Poverty by Cracked's John Cheese, a guy who understands there's broke and then there's BROKE.
discusses issues only people living in poverty truly understand, like
how cleanliness becomes a luxury you sometimes can't afford, haircuts
are done at home and fads can make it hard to afford new clothes.
