Me and Mom
ME: She tried to shame me!
MOM: The cashier? Oh no.
ME: How dare someone wearing Uggs try to make ME feel bad.
MOM: Do you remember the Schnuck’s shuffle?
ME: I remember getting groceries at Schnuck’s…
MOM: When you guys were little, me and my other mom friends had a little con. If you didn’t have grocery money, but you knew you were getting paid in a day or two, you would just pay with a check and the money would be there by the time it went through.
MOM: So basically, you write a hot check. That’s what you should have done! Then you’d have groceries.
1. my mom used to do this all the time
2. only at aldi or shop ‘n save, because schnuck’s was always a little too fancy for us
My mom too! Also using your credit card on weekends, so you could max it out way over the limit since all the charges will go through on Monday.
Also we for sure did the move where you throw every can on the ground to get a discount (when Big Daddy came out in theaters I sobbed at that part and every one of my middle class friends were like @_@ at me)
Or my mom would bring a washable marker into the thrift store and mark the clothes we wanted and ask for 50% off
