Poor Man has been in a bad mood lately. His younger brother, Richard (Poor Man, Richard, get it?) is the complete opposite of him. While Poor Man is dumb and unfortunate, Richard is all around perfect. He's smart, cool, handsome, robbing zebra free, and what bugs him the most, he's the founder of the Pancake Warehouse. As a kid, Poor Man didn't get treated very well. He had to do all the work and chores, even as a two year old. Imagine, a two year old plowing a 5 acre field, not pleasant. But, four years later, there came Richard, or as they call him, Rich. He got everything. He got no chores, all of his father's love, all of the friends good grades, a pair of shades for his birthday which he's been wearing ever since, and Poor Man's biased father even started paying for Richard's money with Poor Man's college fund. Though, Poor Man's college fund was only a few bucks to begin with, so he made Poor Man get a job to pay for Rich's allowance. And that's age 7.
Yep, because of Richard, Poor Man had a miserable childhood. And how that Rich is moving to Power Island, Poor Man has to put up with him for the rest of his life!
"And that's why I'm so upset!", complained Poor Man, "You got that?".
Poor Man looked down on the bed, to see Sharky and Elephant still sleeping. "Sharky, get out of my bucket of butter", mumbled Sharky in his sleep.
"I'm sowwy", muttered Elephant through his own dream.
"Well, good thing I have you guys to ruin the rest of my life", moaned Poor Man, "Now I have to greet that lover boy at the airport".
Poor Man stormed over to the airport and waited angrily. "Hey, dude!", shouted a guy, "What's your problem!".
"Life", replied Poor Man.
Poor Man had to wait 15 minutes. There weren't even chairs. But, finally, a stroke of light came through the door. "Could it be?", asked Poor Man.
Then he heard an angelic chior coming from the gate. "It's him".
But, it turned out to be a visiting glee club and some guy with a flashlight behind them. "Oh, thank goodness".
"Poor Man, what are you doing here? We're off at Gate E, not Gate C", said a voice behind him.
Poor Man looked back, and saw Richard, with a light shining behind him. "What's up dude, how you doing?".
"Yea yea, let me guide you to your home Rich", mumbled Poor Man.
"No thanks, we'll take a taxi", said Richard, "But thanks for the offer bro".
"You have no money, how are you...".
Just then a crowd of people surrounded Richard. "Wow, you're perfect. We must throw money at you for no good reason".
They threw their spare change at Rich and ran off. Poor Man, flabbegasted, stuttered, "You're a few cents short".
Richard then snapped his fingers and somebody threw a gold necklace at him. "How much do you think this is worth bro?".
"More than I'll ever make", said Poor Man, "Where's your family?".
"They're waiting outside, where's yours?".
"In the deepest spot of my imagination", replied Poor Man, "Let me see them. Rosemary had to grow in those last three months".
"Ok dude", said Richard, "Rose, can you come in here?".
So, Rosemary, now 14, came with her mother. "Wow Rosemary, you grew! Somebody hit a growth spurt!".
"Well, I guess being stranded in the amazon for a few days really helps the body", said Rosemary, "Glad to be back".
"Yep, and how's Tony? He didn't, well, right?".
"Don't worry, I broke up with him", said Rose, "You know someone's cheap when they give you a box for your one month mark".
"And, how are you Patricia?".
Patricia, Richard's wife and Rosemary's mother, is covered in mink coats and gold chains. "Good, good, Richard sweetie, I need another thousand dollars, there's a mall near by".
"Ok, so we're all here, have fun with that taxi and I'll see you home".
"C'mon uncle, can't you ride with us?".
"I'm sorry Rose, I got important things to do".
"Like what?", asked Rosemary.
"Glad you understand", replied Poor Man.
Rosemary gave Poor Man a look. Few mintues later, Poor Man is crammed with the taxi with Rosemary and Patricia. "Are we there yet?", asked Poor Man.
"Do you see a mansion?", replied Rosemary, "Oh goodie, we're here!".
The taxi parked and the family packed their things in the house. But, Kid was walking by, when he stopped and saw Rosemary. "Wow!", shouted Kid, "I have a strange feeling inside of me".
Poor Man heard it and ran towards Kid. "KID!".
"Oh no, you're not related to her are you?", moaned Kid.
"Yes I am, and you stay away from her or I'm going to give you a stern 'Don't you ever do that again'".
"Love to stay and chat, but there's a woman waiting to sweep me off my feet, being a year older than me it seems".
Kid than ran off and stopped at Rosemary. "Hello my peach dumpling, you look jaw dropping in the sunlight, would you like to come to my house so we can talk more. Or would you rather skip the words and go right into action if you know what I mean".
"No, I don't", said Rosemary.
"Video games, I got a collection", replied Kid.
"Um, dad! Where did you pack the keychain with that alarm?".
"Give it some thought", said Kid as we walked out, "Hooked and liner".
Poor Man groaned. "This is the start of a miserable time".
And he was right. It was no disappointment, it was exactly what he thought it was going to be. Poor Man has been compared to by his perfect brother, his friends started to hang out with Richard instead of him, and even his own father sent him a 4 page mail on how he should treat Richard.
"Keep your head below his, and when he reaches out his hand, kiss it. If he goes to your house, invite him in and give him your money, and remember, he is superior and you are a pathetic excuse of a human. Enjoy slave, love, you hating father", read Poor Man, "Groan. I can't take it anymore! I'm getting rid of this guy!".
