When I was 19, I thought I knew it all. So did my 2 friends. One day we decided to take a road trip to visit a friend attending college in Atlanta. A week later against our parents wishes we hit the road with a thousand dollars between the three of us. Lucky for us gas wasn’t as expensive as it is today. The trip started out fun, but three hours in things went terribly wrong.
Picture three young ladies traveling by car from California to Georgia in an old car with no radio. Then factor in that only one of us could read a map, 2 of us had a license, and that we had to pull over every hour for one us to go to the bathroom. Add that together with car trouble and we all thought we knew everything, and you get the trip from hell.
Being Broke Is No Fun
As you might have guessed, that thousand dollars I mentioned earlier didn’t last very long. Between eating, hotel rooms, gas, and paying for some new tires we were 3 broke girls by the time we reached our destination. A trip that should have taken 2 days ended up taking 5 days. We ended up having to get jobs and stayed in Atlanta for 5 weeks longer than we had originally planned.
Whenever I watch 2 Broke Girls on CBS I can’t help but think of those 2 months we were stuck in Atlanta. Being broke is no fun! The three of us had to struggle and do without to come up with enough money to get back home. Of course we could have called our parents and they would have sent the money, but we were stubborn. We laugh about it now, but back then it wasn’t so funny.
Being Broke Is No Fun Unless Your Watching TV
Being broke is no fun, unless of course your watching a funny TV show. If you enjoy funny stories about being broke, tune in to laugh along with Max, Caroline and the rest of the cast. 2 Broke Girls has moved to a NEW TIME – Mondays at 8:30/7:30 Central time on CBS.
2 BROKE GIRLS is a comedy about the unlikely friendship that develops between two very different young women who meet waitressing at a diner in trendy Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and form a bond over their dream of one day owning their own successful cupcake business. Only one thing stands in their way – they’re broke. Sarcastic, street-smart Max Black met the sophisticated, school-smart Caroline Channing when the uptown trust fund princess was having a run of bad luck due to her father’s Wall Street scandal, which caused her to lose all her money and forced her to give waitressing a shot. At first, Max sees Caroline as an entitled rich girl, but she’s surprised to find that Caroline has as much substance as she does style. When Caroline discovers Max’s knack for baking amazing cupcakes, she visualizes a lucrative future for them and they begin to save money to reach their start-up money goal of $250,000. As the girls’ cupcake tally expands week-to-week, they become closer to their goal and to each other. At the diner they are surrounded by their offbeat, colorful “work family”: Oleg, an overly flirtatious cook; Earl, a hip 75-year-old cashier; Han, the eager-to-please owner of the diner; and Sophie, the girls’ outrageous upstairs neighbor. As Max and Caroline climb toward their goal, we see that their “smarts” plus their “hearts” might just be the recipe for success.
