Oh Ian Poulter, you just can't help yourself, can you?

Friday morning Poulter tweeted that he was upset at British Airways for downgrading his nanny so that his wife didn't have any help with their four kids.

It was not a good look.

Well that's a decent recovery but the damage had been done. There's actually nothing wrong with feeling that way no matter how rich you are (Poulter has made more than $44 million in his career on the course, by the way) but why tweet it?

Or rather, why tweet that you're upset that your wife doesn't have help with her kids. Fine if you're mad at the airline but it's a little silly to whine about not having help with your four kids for a few hours.

Fine, just don't tweet about it.
