The only lunch money I got in school was 30¢ for a little carton of milk to go with my homemade lunch.
Yeah, you try getting a pizza delivered for ten bucks.
Hi everybody. Just thought i’d stop by and say yo. You guys are the best. Keep those comments coming! Peace, T
Tony asked, about 8 hours ago, but not here in spite of the fact that he visited about 2 hours ago
Are you realistic?
$10 might get you a decent glass of wine, but you still have to eat something.
When a couple of now teenage boys in my extended family were still in middle school, in a well-off district,
they told me their friends liked to blow their lunch money, and more, at a nearby Starbucks.
10 year olds skipping food in favor of $4-plus mocha latte sugar-bombs with enough caffeine in each huge drink to keep an adult going for a week. Just great.
Luckily their mother packed lunches and said no to coffee.
One of them wanted his grandmother to give him his 11th or 12th birthday money ($40) on a Starbucks gift card so he could flash it there.
In spite of his promise not to buy anything caffeinated,
his request was unanimously vetoed by both parents and Grandma.
Poor kid. Had to subsist on actual food.
But he says he’s glad now cos he’s an athlete.
I got milk money when I went to school and that’s all. Unless those lunches are subsidized, I wouldn’t expect to get much if any change back.
Almost forgot to say hi Tony!
You used to come ask the question yourself, every day…
I got a bag lunch from home. With a baloney sandwich. Needless to say I hated baloney for many years!!!
I also brought a lunch from home, with a thermos of milk.
Peter should also make sure that Elliot brings home the receipt, so he’ll know what Elliot spent the money on.
I answered Tony above, so here is today’s…
Second “Daddy’s Home” Question:
Did you get change?
I’m realistic. I ask for the bills too.
Why is he still in school? Isn’t it summer there? No mention of summer school…
Usually a lunch box lunch from home with a thermos. At least until I’d drop it and break the glass inside the thermos. Occasionally got to buy a lunch if it was a real favorite.
Elementary school lunch was 0.35 total.
