When I was younger, I was rather inventive and imaginative. I wanted to solve poverty by inventing ' a game device that cloned money from DNA'. I was blissfully unaware of the giant hole in my invention for many years and sad when the teuth came about. All I wanted was to solve poverty...

I always heard that 4 quarters made up a dollar, so I thought if you laid 4 quarters end to end, they would just meld together and make a paper dollar.

I used to stay in a house with a six year old and used to take her out a lot. One day when I was trying to get money out of the ATM the screen came up as insufficient funds (I am a poor student with no money). She assured me that it was ok because she knew her mums number and we could use my card to get her mum's money.

when i was really young my 2 brothers and i used to get really excited when we went to the bank. ATM's were new machines and we didn't exactly understand how they worked. We would pull up in the drivethru. My mom would put her card in, and so the three boys started cheering for this lottery machine... Mom always picked the right numbers. So we'd be screaming, COME ON BIG MONEY!!!! and wouldn't you know it, mom was real good at it!

I used to believe that it was customary to receive change regardless of how much you give to the clerk... Like a bonus for shopping at the store.

I used to save money up by throwing coins into the bottom of my wardrobe, among all the shoes and things. I believed that it would be easier to save this way, and that I would end up saving more money, because I wouldn't be tempted to go rooting around down there to take the money back. Also, I would never be certain how much money was there. It was a brilliant scheme.

I used to believe that the term "401(k)" reffered to how much money was in the account - $401,000. This belief was further strengthened when I saw an article talking about "how to stop your 401(k) from turning into a 200.5(k)."

When you are very poor you "can't make end's meat." End's meat is some sort of cheap very low quality meat.

I used to believe that when a bank paid you interest on the money in your bank account, that whenever the bank employees looked at your money they had to give you some more because they were interest-ed!

I used to think that when you get change back at the store, they were actually giving you free money. So I never understood why when we couldnt afford something we couldnt just go buy something to get money

When I was young, I used to believe that every week my dad would go to the bank drive-thru on his forklift, and drop off a pile of money. Then mom would go through with us, and take it all out.

I would get a lot of money from cousins on national holidays. I used to believe my mom, who said “If you gave all the money to me, I might give the money back after you enter elementary school”, but I didn’t get my money so far.
