Chase bank triggered a bunch of their customers the other day. One of their staffers posted a message on Twitter meant motivate people to save money.
It was a hypothetical conversation between a customer and their bank account — the customer wondering why their balance was so low, USA Today reports.
The bank account responded with some helpful tips like – making coffee at home, eating food that’s already in the fridge, and you don’t need a cab — it’s only three blocks.
.@Chase: why aren’t customers saving money?
Taxpayers: we lost our jobs/homes/savings but gave you a $25b bailout
Workers: employers don’t pay living wages
Economists: rising costs + stagnant wages = 0 savings
Chase: guess we’ll never know

The backlash was fast and furious — many calling the bank tone deaf. Others pointed out that Chase took money during the 2008 financial crisis.
Long story short — the bank deleted the tweet and apologized to their customers.
The fact is Chase Bank is absolutely right — if you want to save money – don’t waste your cash on avocado toast or five dollar lattes.
It’s better to be tone deaf than dirt-poor broke.
