The lovely and talented J. Money has apparently had enough. In a blog post called “What haters are like,” he details some of the bummer-speak he’s encountered with regard to finances.
I just paid off my debt! (You shouldn’t have had any to begin with.)
I just invested in my first stock! (You need to diversify more.)
I just saved for retirement! (Why? YOLO!)
I just bought a used car! (It’s gonna break down, you know.)
I just bought insurance! (You would have been better off saving it.)
I just saved $20.00 doing it myself! (My time is worth way more than that.)
As the kids say: Srsly????
