Poor man's troubles

Last night there was a barbecue dinner as an appreciation to the Friendship Circle guy volunteers. I say 'guy', but I was one of the oldest. Most of them were still in yeshiva. At the end of the evening, they handed out some sweaters (which is good, because based on FC's website, I would have had to wait three more years in order to accumulate enough points to get a sweater) and those car magnets.
One of the older guys took his magnet, looked at it despondently, and said, "I don't have a car." After more thought, he said, "Or even a refrigerator!"
