Daniel Cabral had a rough go of it last week. As he told the world via Twitter, he lost his credit card, his ID AND his job in one fell swoop. Oof!
Luckily, despite his string of bad luck, Daniel’s sense of humor remained fully intact.
Subsequently tweeting his genius hack for saving money — a good goal in light of his recent circumstances — Daniel posted this photo of a disapproving Terry Crews he now keeps in his wallet.
As the penny-pinching dad on Everyone Hates Chris, Terry’s photo is an instant reminder for Daniel to slow down on spending. As he told BuzzFeed, “I thought I should start saving money since I don’t have a job, and who’s a better financial advisor than Terry Crews?”
His tweet took off, with more than 210K retweets — if only that translated to dollars! Forget finance apps — THIS is clearly the best money-saving option around.
As for Daniel, he’s taking his Internet fame in stride, changing his bio to “local celebrity” and posting the following message.
And to think, it’s all due to Terry and his endearing dad ways.
What a trip!
