Those percentages were surprising and not. I’ve always been a saver so at times I forget that not everyone is. My first thought was I’ll just take some money out of savings, unexpected but no problem. If I needed more than what’s in my savings I could use a credit card (I have very little credit card debt). If I had neither of those, it would be such a stressful situation that I realize many people find themselves in.
