“I didn’t sign up for the 401k at work, because there’s no way I can run that far”

A 301(k) retirement savings contribution plan shouldn’t be confused with a 10K (kilometers) run, but there’s a joke:

“I didn’t sign up for the 401k at work, because there’s no way I can run that far.”

“Didn’t sign up for the 401K because he would never be able to run that far” Twitter on September 15, 2009. “I didn’t sign up for the 401k at work, because there’s no way I can run that far” was posted on Twitter by William Ader on November 20, 2013, when the one-liner went viral.

The joke has been printed on several ecards.


Wikipedia: 401(k)
In the United States, a 401(k) plan is the tax-qualified, defined-contribution pension account defined in subsection 401(k) of the Internal Revenue Code. Under the plan, retirement savings contributions are provided (and sometimes proportionately matched) by an employer, deducted from the employee’s paycheck before taxation (therefore tax-deferred until withdrawn after retirement or as otherwise permitted by applicable law), and limited to a maximum pre-tax annual contribution of $18,000 (as of 2015).
