#1 Quick, look for a job. Need help? This sign will lead the way. If you're poor, look for a 'Now Hiring' sign. Of course, we are in a recession and no companies are hiring right now but don't let that stop you from filling out 100 job applications a day. Remember, wait by the phone because it might ring...you never know.

 

#2 Being poor might make you sick. No worries, you can always look for an 'Emergency Room' sign if you need to take a load off. No money needed and an emergency room makes a great place to rest and, if you're lucky, they might give you some painkillers.

 

#3 Looking for work all day can really make you hungry. Need to eat? Look for an 'All You Can Eat' sign. It makes sense to try and stretch your last remaining dollars as much as possible. Go ahead, get your monies worth.

 

#4 Do you need a place to sleep? Then look for this sign. Really, I'm serious. You can wonder around in peace since the place is always open. Day or night, feel free to go inside at any time. I'm sure you'll be welcomed with open arms.

 

#5 Don't waste money on high ATM fees. You can make a withdrawal and save a few pennies. Use the 99 cent ATM machine instead. See, this is actually a good tip (in case you were beginning to think this article wasn't serious). Fooled you!
