A WOMAN claims to have found the perfect way to identify if you’re poor or not – and it’s all down to owning one kitchen gadget.
Her sister took to Mumsnet, the parenting website, to ask social media users their thoughts.
Writing under the username ‘DonutCone’, she commented: “Dsis [Dear sister] says she can tell we are poor by the fact we own a tin opener.
“She says she herself has not bought a tin without a ring pull in years and obviously does not own a tin opener.
“Apparently only poor people buy tins that would need a tin opener.”
She joked: “Hmm. Shall I sell this idea to the Government as the new easy poverty calculator tool.”
Mumsnet users were dumbfounded.
“Eh what? How random and weird,” commented one, while another joked: “Tell her the artisan pates they sell in Fortnum and Mason food hall definitely do not come with a ring pull.”
“She sounds a complete idiot, tbh,” wrote a mum, as another said: “My mind is a little bit boggled with this.”
“The real sign of poverty is not having a tin opener, buying the cheaper tins and smashing them open on a rock,” said a Mumsnet user.
Another said: “That is a really bizarre thing to notice. Why on earth does she care so much about your ring pull situation?”
‘DonutCone’ added: “She was also beyond horrified when she saw my value level shampoo.
“She had forgotten hers so made me drive her to the nearest town to get some £10 a bottle stuff as there was no way ‘that stuff’ was going on her head.”
But ‘ZaphodBeeblerox’ summed up most people’s thoughts when she simply said: “Your sister sounds like an idiot.”
