"Being poor is knowing exactly how much everything costs"

John Scalzi's latest post is one that resonates, that hits the nail on the head in so many ways.

Being Poor

(excerpts)

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 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 stopping the car to take a lamp from a stranger's trash.
Being poor is people wondering why you didn't leave.
