I'm curious what you would accept as evidence of being "pretty poor"?
No running water or flush toilet. No vehicle. Burning clothes (rejects from thrift stores) to heat your home. That's life on Pine Ridge Reservation; that's poor. You have never been even remotely acquainted with being poor.

Wearing hand me downs and goodwill clothes? Check. One black and white TV in the house until sometime around 1990? Check. Parent working multiple jobs and long hours? Check. Cabbage and hot dog slices a common meal? Check. I'm honestly curious at what point someone is acceptably "pretty poor" in your eyes?

You're going to have to do better than that, I'm afraid. I can cross all those off my list, and we were middle class, at worst.

Last week, I saw a guy with an eyepatch and a gold monocle and pointed him out to Flea as one of the most awesome things I've seen, ever. If I had an eyepatch and a gold monocle, I'd always dress up as Mr. Peanut but with a hook hand and a parrot.
