Being broke sucks.
From being left behind when your friends hang out, to eating the most ridiculous things when you’re hungry, being broke really sucks.
I can understand since I’m a college student. Living off canned vegetables can be tough. Recently, Twitter user SheHatesJacoby asked people what’s the brokest they have been, and the answers are both sad and hilarious. Check them out.
He wrote on Twitter.
What’s the brokest y’all have been?

Our dog’s needs come before our own.
Ate hot and spicy McDonald’s sandwiches for a couple days so I could afford to get my dog his dog food. As long as he was happy I was good.

This one just made me sad.
I was buying an apple and a small bottle of milk with the last of my coins, had to go back and get a smaller apple. O_O

No one likes feeling like a freeloader.
I was so broke I had to pretend I wasn’t hungry when people invited me to go out to eat. 🤦🏽♂️😢

Experiences like these either make you or break you. I hope these people are doing better now.
