Video On ‘How To Save Money By Tipping Less’ Goes Viral Because It’s Really Ticking People Off
I am pretty sure at this point that the people who work for CNBC are attempting to become the biggest trolls on the internet.
A couple of weeks ago CNBC infuriated Twitter (admittedly, not a hard thing to do) with a supposed “average” budget of a couple making $500K a year.
It said things like “little to no” money equals $36,000 a year being put into your 401k, with another $7,300 left over at the end of the year. And that this “average” couple can only afford to take three vacations a year at $6,000 a pop, can spend only $12,000 a year on their kids for sports and other activities, and only give away $18,000 a year to charity.
Yes, it was truly a masterpiece in trolling, assuming they didn’t really believe what they were saying, which, HOW COULD THEY?
But I digress.
Today, CNBC is back at it, making the internet very upset – this time with a video that’s gone viral which explains how to save money by tipping less.
Entitled “This simple tipping trick could save you over $400 a year,” the video has drawn the ire of, well, everyone who has seen it, because of all the things one could cut out of their budget to save as little as $400 a year, is tipping less really the best way to go?
My sources say no.

If you’re rich and don’t tip at least 20% I hope you never find love—
