“I remember when I was poor. I’m still poor that’s why I remember so well”

Many people who are successful often tell about their poor beginnings. “I remember when I was poor. I’m still poor that’s why I remember so well” is a joke that was posted on Twitter by Fatboyswaggscoop (and others) on November 18, 2019.

Desmond Simon probably originated the saying on Facebook on November 18, 2019.
