Americans Would Rather Go To Jail Than Figure Out A Budget
1 in 5 Americans would rather sit in jail for an hour than figure out a budget. That’s according to a new study that says people will do some crazy stuff rather than face their money issues. Investment company C-Note polled 2,000 Americans and more than half say they are not comfortable talking to someone else about their personal finances.
Here’s what people say they would rather do than talk money. 47% say they would drink orange juice after brushing their teeth than spill their biggest money secret to a friend. 34% would rather go to the DMV than make a financial plan. 16% would rather watch a steamy sex scene with their parents than tell them about their biggest financial blunder.
Why do you think money scares people?
