    When someone has -20$ or less in his or her bank account?

    What expression do we use in English when somebody has -20$ or less in his or her bank account?

    They are 'in the red' or overdrawn when their balance is less than zero.

    I notice that subject belong to the daily life, when you got paid in that circumstance that's a relief and then anybody try to figure out how to avoid that unpleasant situation.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
