I grew up in the hood. Entertaining as hell.
I remember I got a beating cuz of this girl named Toni in 3rd grade. We lived in the same apartment complex and we used to walk to school together all the time. Her mama, Ms. Jackie, was a cashier at the gas station. She used to always just cash her checks, keep cash around the house, and go get money orders when it was time to pay bills.
Anyway, one day, we all walking to school and we stopped at the Arab store ( yes, that's what our ignorant asses called although I don't know why, and yes, our ignorant asses pronounced it Aye-rab). All of a sudden, Toni tells us all( like 6 of us) that we can get whatever we want. Everybody kept it simple and got like a bag of chips and a quarter juice. Toni was like, " That's all y'all want? I got money!" Next thing you know, we had the counter covered with Jolly Ranchers, hot sausages, pickle eggs, pig feet, chips, and all that other hood fare. At lunch, Toni was ballin out again. Everybody and they mama was buying the lil extra snacks they used to sell in the cafeteria. Same thing after school at the candy lady house.
This went on for like two or three days. Finally, one day Toni tells us if her mama or big brother asks, tell them she hasn't had any extra money. Sure enough, soon as I get home, my mama and Ms. Jackie are talking in the living room.
TURNED OUT TONI HAD DONE STOLE HER MAMA RENT MONEY FROM OUTTA THE AJAX CAN! They already knew what was up cuz one of the other girls in our complex came home with a bag full of candy and said Toni brought it for her and was buying a bunch of us stuff.
Can you believe my mama tore my ass up cuz she said I shoulda known better cuz it was no way Toni shoulda had that much money. She was right tho
, but I never suspected she stole no rent money.
The funniest part was Ms. Jackie was talking bout suing the school for the rent money for letting Toni buy over $100 worth of snacks in just a few days
Then I fought Toni cuz my mama made me give up my allowance for like a month to make up for everything Toni brought me lol. Then I got my ass beat for that too lol.
