GOING OUT OF BUSINESS SALE

Due to rough economic times, declining ad revenue, and our editor-in-chief being a slave-driving bag of dicks, thisiswhyyourepoor.tumblr.com will be shuttering its doors after 2 long and great weeks in the internet business. We’d like thank all of our loyal readers for your support. It was a magical experience none of us will forget for at least another twenty minutes.

Good night everyone.

Designer Jeans
300 dollars seemed a small price to pay for jeans that made your ass look rad when you were up in the club.
Now they’re in the closet because you just want to be comfortable when you’re down at the unemployment office.

Immigrant Laborers
All you ever wanted to do was pick strawberries day after backbreaking day for a decent wage, but these motherfuckers had to come over from Mexico and lowball the bid.Now you’re sitting at home, collecting unemployment, drinking Pabst, and playing Guitar Hero.U.S.A! U.S.A!

Weed
You think you deserve it, but you don’t. Somehow, despite the fact that you and your roommate democratically switch off paying the extra penny when you split your utilities bill each month, you manage to scrape together the cash to buy two 50’s a week. It’s easy to convince yourself that even though you’re living hand to mouth, at least the herb keeps you laid back about it, but that’s not true either. Once the bag starts to dwindle, you’re scouring your coffeetable like you’re appraising a diamond, jabbing your pinky at anything that looks remotely like it may have been green at some point in the past two weeks, and your friends are worried about you.

iPhone
Yes, the phone was expensive, and the service sure as shit aint cheap, but it’s the app store that got you in the end.
First, you only dabbled in free apps like Flashlight and JellyCar. Two weeks later you’re dropping .99 here, 1.99 there—I mean shit, it’s cool to Tumbl on the run!
Now you’re four months into a wicked app binge dropping 19.99 a night on an app that lets you scramble virtual eggs or mobile analytics to quantify your own self-importance (in real time!) with full-color infographics. You’ve got no loot for pabst, coke or fannie packs and your parents just cut your allowance in half.

Refrigerator With Built-In Espresso Maker.
You thought it would pay for itself with the money you saved by skipping trips to Starbucks.
Now you can’t afford Starbucks and the fridge owes you three grand.
