"Poor as church mice"
I was meeting with a professor of mine today, and he joked that my parents were "as poor as church mice." We were talking about technology and what kinds we use, and then he said this. There is some truth to it. Still, I kind of felt offended even though I just shrugged it off earlier. Why would he insult my family's socioeconomic status, or do I not understand idioms?1 replies
