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.
My bank is ruthless and keeps telling me about high interest savings account promotions even though it knows full well I have no money left after paying my mortgage.— Jessy Bains (@jessysbains) June 8, 2023
Hey, at least you can afford a mortgage. (Shout out to all the renters out there like us who are priced way out of the market now!)
I’ve been broke for like a month and the first thing I got when I got some money is this. I’m sad they had to blend Grimace into liquid in order to make this, but it’s pretty good!

Can't say we're as enthusiastic about the new Grimace shake at McDonald's as this guy, but maybe it would have been better if they did blend that big purple blob up into it.
If I say I’m broke that means I only have money for bills and crab legs. Anything else cannot fit in the budget.— PROJECT BEAUTY (@TROQUELL) June 12, 2023
Look, everyone's got priorities. While delicious, delicious crab legs is not ours, we respect everyone's choices.
because we’re paying £100 for concert tickets we got no money left for the £11 drinks https://t.co/iCBKUMiIfT— FLYNN! (@REALSUPERDARK) June 8, 2023
The concert ticket market is more ruthless than it's ever been right now, so it makes total sense that Zoomers are choosing to spend their hard-earned money on experiences and not booze while they're there.

The first step is admitting you have a problem.

Dude, you were 16 years old.
We've all come across social media personalities like that, and you better believe all of them were trying to sell us something. Never trust influencers.

You can always find room for more books — or maybe that's just us.
