we got WIC... they brought milk, Kix cereal, eggs and cheese.
We used to wait on the corner in the snow in akron, OH... waiting for uncle to drive by after work so he could take us someplace.   we had AMHA housing... made our way from the crack neighborhood to trailer park in south florida. 
mac n chz, and tuna patties 4 nights a week, bologna the other 3 nights.  meals on wheels for summer.

these days, being middle class feels like millionaire status :) 
4 BR house with double den > double wide trailer with palmetto bugs falling thru holes in roof. 
Can't stop smiling, looking back at those days.

Pretty poor. My Dad was shot 3 times when I was 5 in a robbery, lost the use of his left arm, and we lost our family business. So from 5 until I was about 15 and able to really contribute, we struggled. My older sister and I made sure things never got too bad though. Now, I'd say both my sisters family and my own are upper middle class... Prolly due to that experience.

I went to one of the best grammar schools in the country, but my parents were on state benefits. It SUCKED big time to be on meal tickets, and only have 50p a day ( I say only but I was very grateful) when ALL of the other kids has lawyer/doctor/accountant parents and were pulling out £10 at the ice cream van at lunch. But it was very character building and it's helped me to value what I'm able to give my son

Lol that mutherfuckers getting £50 for the ice cream van  ;D

I've seen both sides....wealth and poverty.   From birth to age 11 I experienced wealth in my home.  From age 12 and beyond my parents suffered lots of financial hardship....bankruptcy, foreclosure on our home, collapse of their business, repossession of vehicle, tattered clothes, no money, etc....  We went from Cadillac to Pinto wagon and times were very lean. 

My wife has experienced worse though.  She's gone from warm house and normal living to utter collapse of family, differing forms of abuse, divorce, time in battered women's shelter as a kiddo, moving school to school, barely living paycheck to paycheck (and many times not), months of toast and gravy for each meal, etc....

People have experienced far worse than both of us ever have, but I'm thankful for the difficult times because it gives us perspective today and allows us to cherish the blessings in our lives so often taken for granted.

Poor. as. fuck. Mom had me when she was 16 and my dad dropped out of school and started delivering pizzas and selling weed. I remember growing up brutally poor and although it cause some childhood depression, it shaped who I am. If I had an affluent upbringing I would be 100 times more of a cu-nt and wouldn't appreciate anything like the way I do. Growing up poor as fuck was the most important thing that's happened in my life.

many a time it was oxo and bread every fucking day. one time all we had was broad beans in tomato sauce. i still hate them to this day.

my earliest memory of embarrassment was in primary school and wearing shoes where the toe had split from the sole and all my toes were hanging out. it was like something from a chaplin film  ;D

My swimming pool as a kid was an old steel wheel barrow with a small hole in it. I had to keep the hose running in it so I could keep cool. Now I have a 38' X 16' in-ground pool. Oh, how things change.

You're like my best friend.   Dude grew up dirt poor.  Mother left him as a young boy, he was raised by his Dad (who worked his butt off) and they had NOTHING.  Later he ended up livin with his grandmother.  Dude is now a successful IT manager and has a beautiful home with a big ole swimming pool, lovely wife, beautiful daughters and now he's taking care of his Dad.

Had it pretty rough too early on, before my dad and my adoptive mom extracted me from misery. Going to the church to get clothes. People showing up with handouts, powdered milk next to a 6 pack and a 2 liter of pepsi....  being beat up for no reasons with a 1980's phone receiver because I wanted to talk to my dad... worse was being thrown on the porch naked because I was crying that I missed my dad lol... then hit me with the screen door... 8 or 9 stitches on the forehead. that's when my dad called it quit and saved me from her. She killed herself a couple of years ago. Bon Débarras.


I was lucky enough to get adopted by one of the greatest lady in the world who took me in as her son. Case closed. She loved my dad and loved me so much that she wanted more lil' Alexes... then came my sister and two brothers.. they owe me big time, I sealed the deal for my dad  8).

Pretty poor but my parents were real bad with money plus a little gambling addiction mixed in for good measure. I remember once going to school and in my lunchbox was a govt cheese sandwich and cheeses sticks. Good thing I liked cheese, still do.  ;D

I shouldn't complain too much about my childhood but it could have been way better if my parents had their heads on straight. At least it taught me what NOT to do.

Just my thoughts but when it comes to challenges in your upbringing, I think it's a "sink or swim" type of situation. Either you learn from it and use it to harden your psyche and learn the "don'ts"  or go in the same direction all balls... kinda of an acceleration in natural selection if this makes any sense; the genetics strains have excessive traits but will the next generation use it in a more productive way?

Much like Calfy, I wouldn't be where I am today without this "challenging" part of my life. That "fire in my belly" was extremely strong late teens and early twenties.

It's good to see that you've now replaced that "fire" with the entire contents of the McD's menu.

Great honesty of peace..

240 = awesomely dedicated dude raising great kids. I'm proud of you chief. We've talked about this before.

Had it pretty rough too early on, before my dad and my adoptive mom extracted me from misery. Going to the church to get clothes. People showing up with handouts, powdered milk next to a 6 pack and a 2 liter of pepsi....  being beat up for no reasons with a 1980's phone receiver because I wanted to talk to my dad... worse was being thrown on the porch naked because I was crying that I missed my dad lol... then hit me with the screen door... 8 or 9 stitches on the forehead. that's when my dad called it quit and saved me from her. She killed herself a couple of years ago. Bon Débarras.


I was lucky enough to get adopted by one of the greatest lady in the world who took me in as her son. Case closed. She loved my dad and loved me so much that she wanted more lil' Alexes... then came my sister and two brothers.. they owe me big time, I sealed the deal for my dad  8).

Life = not morally linear. but if you survive and have faith, things always work out.

Today we're one united family (of war) and absolutely inseparable. We all look alike and dominate with love  8)
I call BS  anyone who has been through this wouldn't be such a fucking douche

I have a cousin and a good friend who were extremely spoiled, parents bought them both several cars, motorcycles, most expensive clothes and toys when they were little. Both are fucked up as adults, and both have done time and have shitty lives.
