LOL I used to do that....when I was 16, not really with clothes I used to do it with boots.

'Woah Michelle, you must have at least a 100 pairs of boots'. But once I fell into a puddle on the way back home, i was drunk, i tried to wash them off but the stain wouldn't budge. I went back the next day and they wouldn't take it back :roll:

You have ever washed paper plates(done that quite a few times)

You eat cough drops like candy(haha, done that too..when my friend had some cough drops in his room and there was no other candy there so i just ate those, didn't have a cough or anything either)

You clean your ears with an ink pen cap(done that, also cleaned it with rolled up pieces of toiler paper when i ran out of q-tips, lol)

You think putting batteries in the refrigerator recharges them(yeah, i put batteries in the fridge sometimes, i think it actually works though)

You add water to shampoo to stretch it(i do that with shampoo, conditioner, liquid soap..etc)

You nailed a cut off shoe skate to a flat piece of wood....tryin' to make a skate board(didn't do that myself, but i stole one of those things before..i was a little kid and really wanted a skateboard and i saw these kids making skateboards with a board and wheels so i just took it when they weren't looking..i wasn't normally a stealing type of kid but i guess i really wanted it, heh)

YOU KNOW YOUR BLAC WHEN:(i'm not black, but i still do 2 below off that list)

YOUR SCARED WHEN THE GHETTO BIRD COMES AROUND EVEN IF YOU DIDNT DO SHITT(i do that with cops in general, because the cops in my neighborhood will stop you and write you up just because you're "suspicious"..they called me suspicious before just cuz i was wearing a black coat..they're pretty stupid)

YOU WEAR POP'S T-SHIRTS(i do that sometimes but not just his t-shirts, also sweatshirts and shorts and sweatpants and stuff)

YOU USE CALLING CARDS TO CALL MOM AND POPS EVEN THOUGHT YOU IN THE SAME CITY(my friend's phone was messed up and when i was over his house we had to use calling cards to call everyone, even people that lived like right near us..those card things are annoying)



oh and here's a few new ones(not ones that i do, just some ones me and my friends made up)

you know you're ghetto if..

your jacket doubles as your blanket

you use your sink for laundry and hang your clothes above a stove

your way of bathing is wiping your entire body off with baby wipes

your old microwave is your only source of heat

I used to stay doing that shit.


Also

You know you ghetto:

When you jump in a fight and don't even know who is fighting.

When you pee in the shower while taking a bath.

When you cut your jeans in the summer so you can have shorts.
