10 ways to know you’re living in a third world country……

10. They sell cigarettes and candies by the piece.

(A whole pack is waaaaaay too expensive for some)



9. You unplug the microwave when not in use to save money on your electric bill.

(That clock is really an unnecessary expense)



8. Braces on your teeth is a high class status symbol.

(It means you are rich enough to afford dental care)



7. Receiving a box of hand-me-down clothes is like finding a pirate’s treasure chest.

(Trash to some is a treasure to others – Oh look! Broken glass in this dumpster, I could use it as a knife)



6. You never, and I mean NEVER, throw away food.

(Mom said there are starving kids in Africa)



5. A college education might land you a job at McDonalds.

(“Hey, I started out mopping the floor just like you guys. But now… now I’m washing lettuce. Soon I’ll be on fries; then the grill. And pretty soon, I’ll make assistant manager, and that’s when the big bucks start rolling in” – from the movie Coming to America)



4. Tipping your waiter 1% is highly generous.

(I tipped 15% and the waiter came running for me thinking I left my life savings on accident)



3. You start contemplating prostitution as a career because of the horrible economy.

(Hey, I’d fuck me)



2. Having money is like having Jedi mind control powers.

(Cop: “You’re drinking and driving!”

My friend gives the cop some money and is too drunk to say anything else other than: “Nooo, I am nat”

Cop: “Oh my mistake, have a good day”)



1. Minimum wage per month, if you’re lucky enough to find a job, is about $25 – yup 25 U.S. Dollars a month!

(Nuff said)
