Come on,we know most of them.Times were tight. Ketchup (free) and crackers (mostly free) at joints made cheap soup. My old man dis-connected the middle wire of Con Ed meter for two weeka month.A little dip here a little dip there,most people tried a small "con". In the early 70s,I saw people load up cheap plastic bags from a Roy Rodgers shop outside of Co-Op,with free "fixens".It's a small crime,but at times it needed to be done.So fess up ,what did you/parents do
