Things Ann Romney has never said.

Give me $20 on pump 5.

Is it double coupon day?

I get paid in three days. Can't you just keep the power on until then?

Can't you just patch it? I can't afford a new tire this month.

3. Can I pay it off in installments?

(When asked for something by the kids) Maybe you'll get it for xmas (hint: no you won't we still won't be able to afford it)

These are just as good as Nikes...

6. Mitt, get Seamus off the car roof! What the hell is wrong with you?

I got this outfit at the Goodwill.

Tag, you're going to have to get a paper route and mow lawns to help us make ends meet.

"I'm sorry I can't go out ... I have to clean the house."

"No, really, I don't know how those slugs got into that roll of coins I'm cashing in. I really need this!"

10. The Salvation Army serves free dinners at 5 pm but you have to get in line by 4 to get served.

You can park overnight in the Walmart parking lot and nobody will make you move

That shelter has an area where families can sleep together (or that shelter allows pets)

Look at this great chair I just found on the curb on South St!

14. She probably did say this one ...

"That shelter has an area where families can sleep together (or that shelter allows pets)" ... when her help asked for a raise to make ends meet ...

I'm also not sure about the Salvation Army one ... there are stories about threadbare millionaires who go to soup kitchens because they're too cheap to pay for a meal ... wouldn't surprise me if she pulled that one just for kicks ...

11. Stay-cation.

Gee, I need to dust.

I'm mopping the floor/washing windows/cleaning the toilet/washing the car.

I'll pull weeds tomorrow.

Boy, this line is long (while waiting to check-out).

Bargain.
Budget.
Over-time.

15. "Shit Ann Romney has never said" should be a viral video.

"I'd like to see that movie, but we can't afford a babysitter right now."

"Overdraft charge?! I can't afford an extra $40 bucks in fee's this month!"

"Walmart has a great price on shoes right now"

24. +10000

"Kids, get down here and turn the lights off now! That's a total waste of money!"

"I'm sorry I burned dinner but you'll just have to eat it - we don't have anything else."

"No, Susie can't come over for dinner, I don't have any extra."

"I'm sorry, we can't afford to get a pet right now. Someday we'll get a dog - I promise."

"Kids, please don't get your clothes so dirty, we're going through too much laundry soap."

"OMG, my friend bought me coffee today! One of those fancy Starbucks lattes! She's SO awesome!!"


I could go on.....

If I don't take these, how much will it cost then?

Two question I had to ask that always drew glares from the people in line.

30. I don't have insurance, or I can't afford to see a doctor.

I'm sorry I'm late my bus broke down, can I still take the exam?

I need to leave early I have to get to work.

How long does it take to get reimbursed?

My paycheck is wrong.
