MarketWatch made a lot of people spit out their tea over the weekend when they read, 'By the time you turn 35, you should have saved twice your salary.'
Twice. Your. Salary.
After the hysterical laughter died down the good people of Twitter did what they do best, they rolled up their sleeves and addressed this ludicrous suggestion, by offering up their own advice of what you should have accomplished by the age of 35.
And it was beautiful, we identify so hard with all of these.

By age 35 you should run into friends and say "WE SHOULD HANG OUT SOON!" twice a week. You will never hang out. You'll just scream this at each other until one of you dies.

And to round things off, our favourite one was this.
