    Complete nonsense. Do you have no sense of humor?

    Class was never mentioned. That is your fiction. Feel free to debate the points made, but don't feel free to make up your own thoughts as to what was posted...

    About $4/day on coffee; about $8/day on lunch = $12/day X 5 days = $60/week X 2 weeks = $120.

    I don't drink coffee, and I eat lunches for < $10/week...

    Of course it was. Shall I quote you? "$100 a month is chicken feed". That's in direct relation to poor people any way you slice it. For many people $100 per month is a lot of money and can tip the scale between being able to afford something or not being able to afford it. For you to say those people shouldn't breed is a eugenics opinion that poor people shouldn't have children.

    Then the quote obviously wasn't directed at you, was it?

    Would you mind putting the "quote" into full context? When you do, you'll find it takes on a whole new meaning...

    When I was working I spent ~$20/week on lunch. Now, $60/week is more than what my wife and I each spend for all our food and various household items from the store. We budget ~$100/week for both of us for groceries and cleaning supplies.
