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.

In case you missed it, a much-anticipated new game, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, was just released. The FOMO is strong if you don't have $70 to drop on it like the 10 million other people who bought it already.


Those book fairs were amazing! And they are totally responsible for this next weet...


See? This is all Scholastic's fault. 


Opening all those shopping bags when you get home gives you the same endorphin rush as Christmas morning did when you were a kid.


If only it were that easy.
