We was so poor, we didn't have mice. In fact, if they were passing through, they had to pack a lunch. :P

Lots of them here too. Most are snobby housewives that are looking for a easy score with some old bachelor or widower. While the funeral is taking place they swoop in and take anything of value or get things turned over (property) while the fellow is on his deathbed. I know one that took a family heirloom rocking chair from an apartment (very ornate, hand carved, 100+ years old) - it had been promised to a family relative, but that didn't matter to the vulture woman, she took anything of value. They are, by far, the type of people I hate the most.

There's a big difference between being poor and low class. I was supposedly raised poor but had respect for people and myself, or I got my but beat.

We ate cereal with a fork, to conserve on milk.

There definitely is a difference between poor and classless.

Louis CK sums up being broke pretty well

We fought over the crumbs in the bottom of the toaster when we could afford the electricity to run the toaster.
Brother turned the toaster on high one morning and the whole county went dark.

He uses the sentence enhancers correctly.. unlike that thread we had a while back that dropped F bombs everywhere just to sound cool, or something. He has the content to back it up at least :)

That’s true. I don’t know if this will come out like I intend it to, but I’m from KY, and things have changed in past decades.

When my grandparents and parents were young, it was common around here to be poor; most everybody was poor. There was no industry here and farming was moreso for survival and not making a great living. So, being that everybody was poor, there were plenty of fine, upstanding people in the mix.

Today, however, things have changed. Even though we act as though the economy is worse than ever, people actually have opportunity to make a decent living if they would just do it.
I’m not saying it would be easy for everyone to be filthy rich, but they have opportunity to do better than previous generations.

Most people I know in my area of KY that are poor are poor basically because they are too lazy to work or too dumb to manage the free check they get every month. They are happy driving a car that breaks down every other day and wearing clothes that look like they robbed a hobo as long as they have money for cigarettes and Cheetos.

I’m not saying that’s how it is anywhere else, just in my local area.
