I was helping out at a friend's church by distributing free food to low-income families, and one lady drives up in a spotlessly clean BRAND NEW VIBE to pick up food. Does that strike anyone else as....well,.....odd?

It's called Ghetto-rich. You'd have no idea how many people i see driving around in their Escalades living with their mothers.

If they are poor it doesnt mean that they can't afford brand new things. They might have a habitat house or get discounts on food such as food stamps. Its a matter of where the money they earn is allocated.<br />
<br />
You are also assuming they are poor enough not to afford a new car. <br />
<br />
Its not out of the ordinary.

My mom drives a BMW 330i as of yesterday.<br />
<br />
From a Kia. On 19K a year. <br />
<br />
Long relative-that-I-never-meet-or-can-repeat-the-relationship kinda deal. Hell, my mom really didn't even know her 'cept when I was like one I apparently went up to her wedding or something.<br />
<br />
So yeah. Lent? Rented? Leased? Doesn't mean she bought it.

It's a Pontiac....*****.<br />
<br />
They're cheap. Besides, it could be a government assisted lease or something...<br />
<br />
Also, it's all about allocation of money/priorities.<br />
<br />
I have a sickass computer, but I don't have a car...my fault? Totally. Does that mean that I'm rich if you only see my computer? No, that just means I have a nice computer. I still have to borrow my parents car...*****.

How about this:<br />
<br />
A guy that drives Farari and Lamborgini ask me to give him a 20% on a already on sale item. <img src="/images/smilies/eek.gif" border="0" alt="" title="EEK!" class="inlineimg" />
