“人们总是说，当我回顾这些日子时，我将会一笑置之——为什么要推迟呢?”当安吉拉·尼塞尔(Angela Nissel)在大学期间发现自己在经济上陷入困境时，她没有生闷气，而是决定创建一个在线日志来娱乐自己，记录她每天的考验和磨难。她的“破产日记”充满幽默和智慧，很快就找到了读者，人们写信给安吉拉，对她的经历感同身受，安慰她，和她一起笑，甚至分享自己的经历。《破产日记》是她第一部完整的经历汇编，用一种有趣、独特、准确的语调写成。关于买拉面:我太尴尬了。我只有33美分。我(请不要笑)把钱放在柜台上，然后迅速拿着我的鸡味盐面冲出去。那家伙给我回电话了!我本能地抬起头，我应该跑的……我为什么不跑??! He tells me the noodles are 35 cents. I try to apologize sincerely. I thought the sign said 33 cents yesterday, so that’s all I brought with me. Could he wait while I ran home and get the 2 cents? I show him my student I.D. to let him know I am not a thief. He shakes his head and motions either for me to get the hell out of his store and never come back again or get the money as do come back. I don’t know. He said something like “Nyeh” and swiped his hand in my direction. I can’t translate hand motions well. The noodles: tasty!!!
