So, a co-worker was trying to sell some raffle tickets for his softball team. He didn't ask me at all, either in the email he sent out or in person, but he did harass the girl sitting next to me. She pointed out that I hadn't been asked. He said that he specifically didn't ask me because I'm "always talking about how [I] don't have any money". Money has come up all of twice, I believe? Both times, it was with regards to grad school, and how I can't really afford to go back just now (at least, not without financial aid of some sort, be it loans or grants or fellowships of some sort).
So, apparently, not being able to afford grad school = flat-ass broke. Good to know.
