For Anyone That Gets Paid Twice A Month, This Is Too Real


For us working fools, there’s no greater moment than when that direct deposit hits the bank account every two weeks. Unfortunately that high is slowly replaced by feelings of fear as the bank account depletes to less than nothing. Scrambling to make ends meet might be part of being an adult, but it doesn’t mean we handle it like adults. Here’s a quick look the stages between paydays that we all go through…

When that direct deposit hits at midnight!



Day 1: Drinks are on you.


Cause you earned it.

Day 2: You leave tips like.


Money ain’t a thing, right?

Day 3: After a weekend of living large, you pause.

Probably spent a little too much.

Day 4: You check the bank account to see the damage.

You still have enough money to get you through the next few days.

Day 5: You remember rent’s due.

Now you’ve got only a little left in the bank.

Day 6: To save money, you decide to cook at home.

Oh right.

Day 7: You invite yourself to your parents’ for dinner.

Try not to act like you haven’t eaten real food in a while.

Day 8: You put just enough gas in the tank to get you to work.

Filling the tank is so overrated.

Day 9: For lunch, you eat canned goods that were hidden deep in your pantry.

Secret ingredient number 2. Ssshhhhh… #porkbrains #turkeyoff

This has been in your apartment since before you moved in.

 Day 10: You and ATMs are no longer on speaking terms.


It’s that bad.

Day 11: Your card is declined at the store and you’ve got to make a phone call to move some money around.

Day 12: Your friends go out, leaving you alone at home to suffer.

More like you decided you couldn’t afford it.

Day 13: Having lost everything, you pray to God that you’ll be better with your money from now on.

IT’S PAYDAY: When that you see that paycheck just got direct deposited at midnight.

Your prayers have been answered.

Day 1: You’ll start being better with money tomorrow. Tonight you deserve to have fun!


And you wonder why you’re always broke.

Here Are Some Of The Most Annoying Things That Happen To Latinos In Small Towns

For Latinos, growing up in a small town is no easy feat. Between being the only Latino everywhere you go and being expected to speak for all Latinos, it is exhausting but low-key exciting. Here’s what it’s like being the lone Latino in a tiny town.

It’s hard to find a hairstylist that knows what to do with curls, waves, or a head full of thick hair.

This usually means mom ends up doing it herself.

People are constantly asking you if you are related to the other Latinos in town.

Look, y’all. Just because my name is Jorge Rodriguez-Jimenez and my friend’s name is Lara Diaz-Jimenez does not mean that we are related. Are you related to every Smith in a three-town radius?

Every time another Latino family moves into town, you feel an immediate connection.

It’s like being reunited with your long-lost cousin you didn’t know you had. You instantly bond over music, dance and food.

And you always gather at someone’s house for every holiday, birthday party, quince and baptism. Even if you don’t know them.

The whole town gets jealous because nobody knows how to party like Latinos.

Sometimes you correct the Spanish teacher during class and that never goes over well.

Teacher: I got a degree in Spanish from the local college so I know what I am talking about.

Me: My grandparents don’t speak English, so beat that.

All your friends run their Latino “jokes” by you to make sure they aren’t racist.

Look, guys. If you have to ask, then it’s most likely racist. Can you just not?

You are the spokesperson for all Latinos.

Friends: I know you’re Cuban but do Mexicans really…

Me: -_-

Everyone always asks if that one Mexican restaurant in town is authentic.


Well, I tried to order my meal in Spanish and the waiter just looked confused. Take that as you wish.

But the best part is that your primas can chismear about people in Spanish while standing right next to them.

Even if they know you, they have no clue what you’re saying.
