You Know You Ghetto…When/If

Don’t Fight it, you can’t win, believe your friends you are Ghetto. It’s not always bad, Ghetto to many people is a term of endearment.

3. If you have the cable, Cell phone or other utilities in other peoples names.

When it comes to sharing the expense of having these such luxuries. One rule should always apply if you can’t afford to pay for on your own then you shouldn’t have these items. All this does is cause problems with the people you’re in the arrangement with. When you decide that you can’t afford to pay your bill this month.

9. When you wear pajamas outside. (Like you’re pajama rich)
