DUCT TAPE God's Little Problem Solver

3 PART True Life Poor People Series
Part 1

If you are a young poor (redundant) person (most likely scenario) then you probably only know duct tape as Dad's little household helper and marriage fixer for when he causes minor major damage when fixing things only experienced (re: expensive) professionals should do.

But besides a marriage, duct tape can fix so many other things!

Smart poor people know the value of a $2.89 roll of duct tape can add up to a lot of savings in the long run.

For example:
Say you are riding in your really nice acceptable car like a toytoa camry, honda civic, hyundai elantra, gmc pontiac down the road having a good time probably eating something from a fastfood place because they are willing to sacrifice quality for price (good for poor people!!)

Enjoying the taste of saving money you probably were not looking out and ran into someone. Not having insurance of any kind (i.e. dental, medical, apartment)- because poor people or even middle class should not have the right to affordable healthcare in the most wealthy country in the world- prevents you from claiming an EXPENSIVE trip to the repair shop (or hospital, etc). What is a poor person to do:

This poor person probably saved HUNDREDs if HUNDREDS OF HUNDREDS of dollars. This poor person not being a mechanic estimates the damage to be about $14,000. Well that's lot of money! Now let's add that up to our other uses of duct tape...
