Ok ok just thinking over being poor.
A little bit of funny humor that may be offensive!
You know you are poor when your dog goes to church with you because you can not afford a fence! Worse yet between the walk from church to the house the dog stops at the fishermans house and rolls in his pile of discards then goes and sits near the pastor while she is trying to preach at the front of the church.
You know you are poor when you think your neighbors pigs stink or maybe you need a septic tank and are truly not sure if both are not correct.
You know you are poor when all of your English students notebooks fly away because they only had a few pages anyways and you have class outside on a table because your trailer has no space!
You know you are poor when you go to turn on the water and then think it does not come out because you did not pay the bill or because there is no water supply today!
You know you are poor when you think rice and beans is a complete meal when you put chilis and onions for vegetables!
You know you are poor when the radio is too expensive to plug in so you listen to an ipod mini that you can charge while online at the internet café!
You know you are poor when you look for 50 cents on the ground to pay your 30 minutes on the internet!
You know you are poor when the discussion every few days is how to heat bath water and which is more expensive! Gas, Electric or going to find fire wood (gas in a car).
You know you are poor when you take your son to the zoo which is actually a walk to look at the neighbors ostrich and saint bernards!
You know you are rich when every kid in the neighborhood wants to eat at your house because you eat two meals a day and better yet they just want to be there because Jesus lives in and through you!
