me: so you know how i got those two new space heaters? well, i have this great idea.
quasi-bf: what's that? you leave one at your house and one at your office?
me: no! i'll put one in my bedroom and one in the living room and keep them on while i'm home so i won't ever have to turn my heater on! i'll be saving tons of money. it's so genius!
quasi-bf: no, it's stupid. just turn your heater on. why are you being so cheap?
me: umm, i was a child of the depression.
quasi-bf: what the hell?? you were born in the 1980s! your mom was born in the mid 60s and your grandparents weren't even born until the late 30s and early 40s. who the hell do you even know that lived during the great depression??
me: my great grandmother. she once told me how she knew someone who stood in line for bread.
quasi-bf: your family's not even american! i'm pretty sure the swiss and italians didn't have the great depression.
me: i watch a lot of history channel. i know what the great depression was like and i don't ever want to go back.
