“My dad always said, ‘Work until your bank account looks like a phone number.’ Balance: $9.11”

“Work until your bank account looks like a phone number” is a popular saying that went viral in September 2014. A popular joke is that the phone number is “911”—the emergency number.

Phone no from which country?N what kind? 911 is a phone number too.. ‘@Bossy_KC: Hustle so your bank account looks like a phone number’” was posted on Twitter by PrincessTosynBucknor on October 6, 2014. “911 ‘@EtniesJags: Work until your bank account looks like a phone number’” was posted on Twitter by Uwani on October 15, 2014.
