‘The past 7 days have been the worst of my financial life’ (he’s not talking about stocks)

There’s always someone somewhere who is worse off than you.

Often, you can find them on Reddit. Some people are betting big on bitcoin, others are fretting over the Dow Jones Industrial AverageDJIA, -2.07% and S&P 500 SPX, -1.72% Meanwhile, millions of Americans continue to lose their shirt the old-fashioned way.

This Reddit user, the appropriately named MaxedOut79, is 28-year-old independent contractor who earns $80,000 to $90,000 per year. He’s doing pretty well for a man of his years, given that he earns 50% more than the median U.S. household. And this week, it all went horribly wrong.
