If you're a single mother raising a toddler and working a job that is barely sustainable for the both of you, having an iPhone 4 should not be a priority in your life.
Why would you sacrifice more than half of your month's salary for a piece of technology that you could have lived without? Not only that, but a monthly plan for an iPhone is ridiculously expensive.
So you settle for a New York Fries poutine that isn't even fulfilling, when you could have bought a real meal.

Some things will always bottle my mind.
