Depression survivors recount memories of not having enough food and not enjoying luxuries. Any meager income they possessed covered rent, food, clothing, electricity, gas and medicine—drive thrus, baked treats, cable, car payment, cell phone, etc. Can you imagine months of no meat, not by choice but by necessity? Families stuck with cheap carbohydrates and veggies to fill bellies—potatoes, pasta, cabbage and carrots. Leaving food on the plate was considered a sin and kids wasted nothing.
Nowadays, we have bogus greenies. $in-gapore happens to be an extreme example of a country infested with such pests.
"I'm so poor!!!! I can't afford the latest iPhone!!! I need the latest Macbook!!! I don't live in a bungalow!!! I can't afford a Ferrari!!! I can't...blah blah blah...."
"I'm so frugal!!! I dump (useful) things into recycling bins all the time!!!"
$ick!!! Two words: Uniquely $in-gaporean.
