I Give a Crap
I can make fancier meals than you can because I give a crap.
I give a crap enough to go out and buy canned and frozen vegetables and use them to make dinners instead of going to McDonalds or having my brother bring you food from Taco Bell. I also give a crap to make a decent dinner after my 8-hour work day, despite being tired. You could do this. You don't work. You have plenty of time.
I give a crap enough to pass on the 2-liters of soda, like the ones in your fridge. Those cost more money than good food... especially at the party store where you buy them. For the price of 2 of those, you could've bought a whole chicken. Not to mention those empty calories just leave you hungrier than before.
I give a crap enough to budget. It doesn't matter that I get a larger paycheck from work than the disability checks you receive. You could be planning things out too. Regardless how much money I make, I give a crap about making sure I can get groceries at the end of the month, so I don't buy frivolous stuff at the beginning of it.
I give a crap about learning to cook better and newer things. I give a crap about this so much that I scanned all of grandma's recipes into my smartphone on my last visit, and I spend time looking up other recipes on the internet. If you gave a crap, you'd be looking through all of dad's cookbooks, of which there are many, and try making something other than boxed mac 'n' cheese and bologna sandwiches.
Now that I think about it, the only thing I don't give a crap about is your excuses. You shouldn't be giving me sob stories about how small your welfare checks are, how you don't have time to cook, and how broke you are. You sit around bored, smoking and watching TV, when you could be improving your life and the lives of the rest of the family. So instead of asking "Why is David so lucky?" you should be asking yourself "Why don't I give a crap enough to change?"
