When my parents got married, they were pretty poor. So poor in fact that they didn’t really go anywhere for a honeymoon, but it gets worse.

They thought they might just spend a nice night at home, but even that wasn’t in the cards. My dad came down with the flu or something, and my mom went to the Piggly Wiggly (a real name for a real store that apparently still exists) and bought him some care items.

That was that. Their honeymoon was the Piggly Wiggly.

Still not as bad as some of the stories from these anonymous people, though.
