“My boss told me time is money. I don’t buy that for a second”

“Time is money” is a proverb that was popularized by Benjamin Franklin (1705-1790). A joke was posted by Steven W Skinner on Twitter on January 18, 2016:

“People say time is money- well I don’t buy that for a second.”

“I don’t buy that for a second” usually means “I don’t believe that for a moment” and is not taken literally. A slightly different version was posted on Reddit—Dad Jokes on March 6, 2018:

“My boss told me time is money. I don’t buy that for a second.”
