I grew up poor and then evolved into a Jew. Now I buy generics and still wear the same stuff on rotation until I have use my clothes to 100% usefulness and have to throw them away. I save so much money and spend that money on my Glorious Master Race PC! Glory be to lord Gaben may his sales be high and his games cheap.





Join the Jews you know you want to.

I don't really notice/ pay attention to that at all, and even if I did it would be silly of my to look down on them considering I wore a jacket for years that my mom said made me look like a homeless child.

If I notice a kid with same clothes again and again, then rather pointing out I would help the poor kid by giving him clothes. The joy of giving is something that cannot be explained I guess. A few months ago one of my friends went on tourisme solidaire ( http://www.mission-humanitaire-afrique.org/tourisme-solidaire-voyage-humanitaire/ ) to Africa and there they helped poor children in educating them and to hear the laughter of a child you have just made happy. After hearing his experience I have also decided to contribute to the child welfare and make smiles on children face.

Get the child protection service or something. Either way if people are poor it means they are just lazy and just aren't trying hard enough, and want money and change and beg and crap. There's a welfare system too so they have no excuse to be poluting the streets with rags to be honest.

I'm not poor, I just don't believe in buying a set of clothes every week to make myself poor.

I mean the logic in that should be good enough.

Eh...? That doesn't exactly mean that someone is poor.

I personally ignore it since i grew up.. i wouldn't say poor but ALWAYS broke and living off very little money for basic food, water and housing requirements. Kids are cruel but all kids grow up eventually (most).

I wouldn't look down on poor people. If they look very bad i do feel sorry for them. I cannot imagine laughing at them or their misery. Life deals you a random card and you have to deal with it. You could've been born handicapped, poor, rich, male, female. But whatever the case you have to paddle with the boat that has been given to you in life. Since others are also subjected to the same amount of randomness, i couldn't imagine myself laughing at them. I think only people who cannot put themselves in another persons shoes would do that.

Kids should all have to wear a uniform to school, like they do here. Same color shirts, same color pants. That way, you have none of that petty shit with designer clothes and such.

I prefer to wear the same clothes often--but it's not because I'm poor.

Exactly. Some people like to wear the same clothes. I have habit where I have one shirt/jumper/dress, trousers and shoes that are favourites and I'll wear then until they're extremely worn enough to get holes. Those I tend to leave for house clothing or for just going around the corner with.

Since schools have uniforms all children are wearing the same thing every school day. When I was a child in the Caribbean the only way we could tell any difference between us was by the type/brand name of shoes we wore or our underwear. I recall grumbling at home for having to wear the same coloured underwear to match my navy blue uniform everyday. Friends had started to tease me for wearing the same underwear every day but each day I was given a fresh one from a set of 7, one for each day. All my siblings complained about this. Brother had sky blue y-fronts to match his school shirts. This was mother's habit. Family said that they come from working class people therefore they're working class and we're poor. Only we led a middle class lifestyle. Family were homeowners. When young we had a childminder (they dare not call her a nanny because that term was for the rich). The childminder was employed full time only for our family. Family also got an income from tenants in a property as well as their usual jobs. When they got disgusted with the regular public education in the neighbourhood school we got sent to private schools. Mother hired a driver to take us to and from school. We only got to go to public school only after exams to go to good schools. The same earnings for a middle class livelyhood in the Caribbean would be a working class life in the UK. You get more for your money there.

My friend did have trouble getting clothing and food. Their family were on public assistance. Before meeting her I never knew such a thing was possible. I didn't mind sharing things with her when she asked.
