Location: Marietta, Georgia, United States

I'm here. I love hearing the birds sing in the middle of the night and early in the morning. I like walking but I'm tired of it and wish I could ever buy a car of my very own and afford to actually drive it places. As it is now, I would maybe get a car, unlikely, but it would sit in the parking lot because I got no money to insure it and to put gas in it. So, I might sit in the car and have somewhere to go besides my apartment, but that would be about it.

Got No Money Guide to Home and Personal Security

More stickers for the protection of home, self and property:

*You can have everything in our house, if we can bum a couple packs of cigarettes from you. We'll help you load it up.

*Steal what you want, but could we bum a couple packs of smokes off you. Our welfare check hasn't come yet.

*We couldn't afford our car insurance and this vehicle is registered with the State Office of No Insurance. Take it at your own risk. Oh yeah - and I've been meaning to get the brakes fixed - use the parking brake if you're going to want to stop at all. Just tug real hard.

*Unemployed Taxpayer.

*The CEO of a major corporation lives several blocks over. We were down-sized and drawing welfare. Why waste the effort? If we had money to rob, guess what? We'd have already spent it on something. In fact, we did.

*We are shoplifting food at the grocery store to feed our family. Please come back on Monday, Wednesday or Thursday and we'll talk shop.

*Our house is in foreclosure. Please feel free to take the rest so we don't have to pay movers.

*Everything here came from the thrift store. Help yourself.

*We are justifiably poor. We follow a religious order. Apparently you need to join. We can save you. Come back when we're here and we will.

*Do you know how many ways you can make macaroni and cheese into different meals? We do. We aren't doing that because we can afford to go out to eat. Our children think happy meals are days we can eat rice and bologna. Don't tell 'em.

*The trash in our yard is not a status thing. We don't have money for that. We are not robbable, unless . . . never mind, you probably have your own trash cans.

*Who told you to come to this neighborhood anyway? We would live somewhere else, if we had any money.

*Our bankruptcy is final. Thanks for stopping by - its a little late but there is a roll of toilet paper left if you hurry.

*We had money once. Please try us again in five years.

*Unemployed long enough to hate everybody. Come on in.

*We own a black and white tv. The children put rocks in our cassette player. We have two lamps that don't work and the telephone's ringer don't ring since I threw it at the wall. If you really want it - go for it.

*Official member of the working poor.

*If you leave your address and phone number, we'll be glad to let you know when we can afford to be robbed.
