In the forum, my wife would shop for goods and people like you, or slaves would accompany her.
Well, well, well, if wasn’t for people like you always telling us what to do and where to go with your wife we could live however we want to. And for most of us poor Romans they don’t have to worry about being enslaved!
With our money we can purchase silks, perfumes, and instruments for music, but with you guys here we don’t have to go out to buy stuff like that on our own, we use you guys for everything.
Everything? Okay, so this is where we have ended up, okay! You know what? We still at least, surprisingly get fed by the emperors and get entertainment, but...but...
...but you...you treat us just about as much as a sack of potatoes. And us poor people rely on the emperors to give us food because we can’t go out into the forum without getting weird looks and get food due to the fact that we have nasty clothes on and just the fact that we are poor. People of rome will want to stay away from us because they are probably going to think that we have a disease. That is why we are on opposite sides of this chariot arguing and discussing.
But what?! C’mon spit it out! Just because we are rich doesn’t mean we can buy EVERYTHING! We still have to worry about the crime and all of those diseases out there just about as much as you do!
As a rich person,*wink**wink*, we also have to worry about things, but I don’t understand how much poor people go through because I have never had to been put in that situation.
Well, I have to go work at my master’s farm.Ugh! Good day!
