7 Signs You’re Actually A Boss In This Money Thing

August 11, 2020

While some of us are still struggling to figure this money thing out, some people are already light years ahead.

If this is you, accept this post as our show of respect:

1. You don’t think about Dollar-Naira exchange rate before you make international payments

It is what it is, dear.

2. When your ATM transaction fails, it’s never because of “insufficient funds”

When it’s not the end of the world.

3. Unnecessary bank debits don’t put you in panic 

Looking forward to when I will relate to this.

4. You have rent for 2 years sorted out already, even though you’re probably looking for a new apartment

We move.

5. You don’t pause to do cartwheels when your salary enters

Must be nice.

6. Your experience of a rainy day is when it actually rains, not when you’re broke (Because that never happens. Duh!)

Like what does that even mean?

7. Even when your savings is accessible, you don’t have a reason to touch it

Do giveaway, boss. Help us.

We already guessed how many people you’ve slept with, and y’all were out here denying the truth. Anyway, we won’t hold that against you. This time, however, we’ve created a quiz that predicts who you’ll sleep with next — so you can either prepare or try (unsuccessfully) to prevent it. So, take and see:

Recently, I had an interesting money situation where a friend defaulted on a loan. From the lies to the silence, I felt somehow. Especially because of the lies and fake anger.
