You know you're poor when...

You know you are a poor college student when you ________
  • are willing to camp outside of Chic-Fil-A in 30 degree weather just to get a couple of free sandwiches
  • refuse to go to a frat party because they are charging a ridiculous entrance fee of $1
  • let yourself be poked and prodded for 3 hours and finally get to have a straw size needle shoved into your vein for a solid 45 minutes just to make 20 bucks
  • start to see how many things you can squish on one paper so you can save money at the printing station
  • become a registered "delinquent" on the libraries registry because you don't ever pay for your over due books
  • you start wondering if you should flirt with more boys so you can get a free meal
  • Ramen noodles becomes your greatest technique for satiation
  • only shop at Walmart
  • let previously disgusting things slide by... a little mold on the bread eh, milk that expired three days ago, no biggie
  • start price checking fast food restaurants
  • drive slower than the elderly because you can't risk getting a ticket, and shot coasting saves gas
  • start contemplating if stealing an enormous roll of one ply toilet paper from the schools bathroom is too risky 
  • become grateful for as many babysitting opportunities as possible
  • start making a list of things you want to buy for the day when you have money

I must say I have done all of these things. Except the frat party one.

Oh . . . I wish you could afford some frozen peas to spice up your ramen. Would you like to have one of our hens? Then you'll at least add one free egg a day to your diet!

I love ramen noodles haha I have it more often than I should admit.
If there was free sandwiches, I would be waiting too! I just got a free taco at Taco Bell last week-heck ya!
