Tough Choices

Poor college student sometimes has to make some really tough decisions.

Every few months, I get so broke that I have to choose between eating or buying my birth control pills. Just a few days ago, I had to make that decision.

Can you tell me what a poor college student would choose?

Yeah, I did choose that. But let's be real. A baby would make a poor college student even poorer.

Poor College Student has no money or time to buy a between-class snack.

I wanted to get a snack in between classes from the vending machine because I was hungry.

But I only happen to have about twenty cents in my wallet- a dime and a bunch of pennies. I have a debit card, but even if I get cash out from the nearest ATM near me, I will only get twenty dollar bills.

Vending machines do not accept twenty dollar bills.

The cafe where this ATM is located where I could have used cash is probably closed by now, so I have nowhere nearby to use these bills.
I don't have enough time to go somewhere to break my theoretical twenties.

I guess I'm just going to stay hungry until class is over.
