As students throw everything in their bags and take out a pencil, a couple people turn to the person next to them and whisper something to them.

$1.25, $1.25 for one tiny little cookie, just one. There has got to be a limit, our parents only have so much money after all. Worse, a burger with nothing on it is at least $2.00 not counting the water, milk, or juice you might wash it down with, or the fries, salad, or fruit you would want for a side....
