Chuck emailed me to share this story:
It was a nice afternoon so a man decided to walk home from work instead of taking the bus as he usually did.
When he got home he proudly announced to his wife that he had just saved them $2 by walking home and not taking the bus.
His wife – not impressed – said, “You idiot. You could have saved us $20 by not taking a cab!”
Back in January, I actually used a variation of joke in a guest post for Budgets are Sexy about why how much you save is more important than how much you spend. It remains one of my favorite posts, so check it out.
