A simple cup of Joe is what most of us would consider far from a luxury in our day.

But what if things are so bad, you can’t even afford that?

Well, it seems things are just getting increasingly tough for average Americans and this post from TikToker Kat aka @kat71766 seems to prove the point.

Kat is able to afford rent – but it seems that that rent is likely very high and with prices increasing across the board – she’s no longer able to afford coffee pods!

So, she’s had to make the most of a communal kitchen in her apartment block and she has to snatch coffee from there if she’s got guests round.

Because let’s face it, who wants to admit you can’t afford coffee?

She told her followers in this viral post: “Since inflation is now so high, I can no longer afford to buy coffee pods.”

She continued: “So, whenever I have guests over, I just, like, go get coffee at the machine in my apartment and have the coffee ready in case they want coffee.”

She whacked her cup under the coffee machine in the communal kitchen and poured. “So, yeah, I just came down here and get it,” she said.

You have to cut corners where you can.

I think a real friend would understand that!
