Money can be stressful, but nothing quite matches the all-encompassing anxiety you get when there's no money to be had. "More money, more problems" was clearly coined by a wealthy capitalist who wanted to keep the little guy down, because it doesn't hold true when you're living paycheck to paycheck with kids to feed, elderly parents to care for, and collectors calling you at all times of the day. The best way to stay sane in that soul-crushing, down-and-out cycle is by adopting a healthy sense of humor and cackling at relatable Tweets like these, because sometimes you just have to laugh or else you'll go absolutely crazy.
Growing up just means you learn to recognize when you're broke and can't spend money.— Forward March (@RunOldMan) April 23, 2023
That sounds suspiciously close to responsibility, and we don't like it one bit.
Broke dudes always hand you money like this pic.twitter.com/vDTUruqihM— Bill (4HL Arc) 🚬🥐 (@Bill__py) April 21, 2023
It's true! It's always wadded up in their pockets or their fists, like they're hanging onto it for dear life. It's hard to blame them.
I don’t care how broke or down bad I am you will NEVER catch me messaging friends on social media for money 💀😭— cely ღ (@glitterrgirrl_) April 25, 2023
Some people have too much pride to ask friends for help. We are not those people.
The look you give your best friend when he ask you to pay his money back in public knowing you're broke pic.twitter.com/XD38ks5bcB— 💜𝔾𝕣ÅçÏõÛ𝕤🌈LåDy MkÖ💚 (@GodsGift88_) April 21, 2023
Doing your friend dirty like that in public is rough. At least have the decency to call in a loan in private so you don't embarrass your BFF.

A guy recently stopped talking to me cos I told him I’m broke — 💕💕Mide 💕💕 (@HaYoMiDe_) April 26, 2023
Any man that doesn't want to associate with you because you're broke isn't a man worth associating with at all.
i think inflation is kinda cool pic.twitter.com/w2rPb7XfRg— albert (@albert12798) April 26, 2023
If only inflation worked like pumping up tires, we'd be shoving quarters in those air machines at the gas station like mad to overinflate our dollars.
Being broke while waiting for a friend to send you money they owe you so that you pay an urgent bill is the finest example of trusting the process.— Mr Black⁛ (@MrBlackOG) April 22, 2023
You gotta rob Peter to pay Paul when Paul is also known as the bill collector. Guess that's why some people ask their friends for money on social media, huh?
Dude I'm like SO incredibly bad at having money. Like being broke constantly sets you up for failure the second you actually get money— ~XxProbl3mPUPxX~ ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 (@MischiefMerle) April 26, 2023
People get used to one way of living, and it's hard to change their mindset. If you never have any money, you never learn how to manage it.
Money. Do y'all understand how broke we are?!?! https://t.co/kXoZTzx0Tu— Donnie Johnson Sackey (@donniejsackey) April 24, 2023
Millennials are killing things like crappy chain restaurants that Boomers love, but it's not because we don't want to go out and have fun, it's because we're broke! Why is that so difficult to understand?
Even if you say money is evil, being broke is not holy..— MAKANAKI (@black_bhoy_) April 26, 2023
Money is a tool and an unfortunate necessity. Everyone that's ever said money is evil has either never had to worry about a bill in their life, or is trying to separate you from your money to line their own pockets.
