Today, I went to a fast-food joint and ordered off the $1.00 menu to save money. Five hours later I go to the hospital with food-poisoning. After a whole day of not eating, crapping, puking, having tests, and a bunch of IV fluids, my $1.00 burger ended up costing me $2,000 in bills. Really. FML

... I can already hear the "You deserve it for eating fast food." Well, you don't. You're allowed to have a cheeseburger every once in a while if you feel like it.

Wow really everyone still replies to 1 so people can see there comment. Ok well I am actually commenting on number 1 and saying that it probably was McDonald's because they are disgusting and do not clean there building and if you eat there you deserve to get food poisoning. Also this is fake because the place that gave you the food poisoning would pay for your medical bill if it was there fault.

pfft sure, but you also pay $20 to do to dennys to pay for that healthcare system. not so free when going out to eat costs more then twice what it does in places where you pay your own health care bills

It would cost you less to buy groceries and cook decent food than to eat that crap. YDI for thinking "saving money" is justification for eating a cheeseburger.

Which is not to say "don't eat cheeseburgers". I love cheeseburgers, but I'm old enough to admit that I eat them because I want to, not because I'm pov.


Let's break this down.
Meat is expensive.
Hamburger buns are expensive.
Lots of people actually can't afford these things.
Sometimes, when you're poor, it's the only affordable way to get a little protein.
Until the only thing you can afford is a 17 cent pack of ramen, you probably wouldn't understand.
