@ATF Ooh, have fun!
@ThatJenn Maybe it's not as common among Billfold readers (or commenters?) but you know there are shitloads of people in this country who make plenty of money and still spend it all and more! I think the "boring" and/or "obvious" stories are still worth hearing!
When I lived in DC almost 20 years ago, I was a mile from the closest shopping center that had a supermarket, and Home Depot, and I forget what else. Anyway, I definitely rode the bus home with more bags of groceries than I could actually carry, or a too-heavy piece of furniture, etc. I was ALWAYS That White Girl Who Is A Mess on the bus.
@aardvark Oh man, that made me laugh IRL.
@A-M AND after that, someone I know STILL got food poisoning there! WTF, Clover?
@TheDoctorsCompanion Yeah, I enjoy a McD's burger, but I'd pick it over another fast-food option because of the fries, not the burger. I went to Firehouse Subs and was kind of horrified by both the price and the size of the subs (and I realize they go hand in hand on purpose). That's another thing I do like about McDonald's -- you can get a small meal there! (BK as well...)
@potatopotato And for cheap!
@Emily Kaye Lazzaro I actually go to Star, because it's closest to my house -- I am just as glad not to be involved in the MB drama!
Hilariously, I was just thinking that my local cheaper grocery store probably isn't crowded with Eastern European ladies.... except it probably is the same one, since I also live in Somerville! (But I shop at the expensive grocery store because I am a monster.)
@cryptolect I was shocked! I literally was like, "Oh, I'm going to treat myself to Tampax...."
