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.

Spending money to show people how much money you have is the fastest way to go broke.— Ja Leto (@_falsi1ke) May 24, 2023
It's funny 'cause it's true. (And it feels good to remember that even arrogant rich people can be just as broke as we are someday.)
When you can't afford a real vacation— Sue (@SueJ2023) May 19, 2023
This video is very wholesome and weirdly adorable and that makes us feel a little better about not being able to afford a vacation either.
So Fnb charges you after a transaction declined due to insufficient funds?! 😭 you can see there's no money, why are you charging me again?!— Marlene° (@Marlene_VianaZ) May 18, 2023
You'd figure bank execs would think critically about their fees, but always remember that they're in the business of taking our money from us. It's logical once you remember that.

im gonna “treat myself” into an empty bank account😔— maija ♈︎ (@xo_maija) May 24, 2023
That may be taking self-care and retail therapy too far.
The Bentley was in front of me at the traffic stop. Told my son: see that logo? Stay far away from it 😂😂 I can’t afford to pay more on auto insurance. pic.twitter.com/BsHqvq2h2s— not the real Q 🐉♊️ (@q611az) May 24, 2023
This is good life advice for anyone, really. If you can't afford a Bentley or Rolls yourself, don't even look at them sideways, let alone drive near one.
Nobody can ever say I came around them broke bc if Ian got no money I’m staying in the house 😂— Zy (@chileidcnomo) May 22, 2023
Never leaving the house is certainly one strategy for making sure you're not tempted to spend money you don't have.

That's kind of like a "get out of jail free" card. But hey, you can't take your money with you when you die!
