she was complaining that they had to tighten there belts because shell end up paying 900 for the loan funny how when there tightening there belts she has a 42 inch plasma on the wall and a tv on the floor for the kids to play the console and designer things in there house dont get me wrong there are genuine people that get trapped in loans and i feel sorry for them but if she was desperate surely theyldd sell the other stuff to many people buy on hp hoping that if they go on tv a station or paper will pay there way or the council will bail them out

easy solution make them sell there stuff like the plasma and the console and designer gear as you said all you need is food rent clothes and possibly a bit extra its these people that r on benefits that ruin the benefits system for those that actually need it
the kids didnt even look like they were old enough to switch it on and she got it last year anyone think she bought it for herself and then cried that it was the kids present last year

didn't see it myself, but it's a common trait nowadays.

ppl are living WELL above their means, then moaning that their short on money - they should see how tough life can REALLY be.

they make me sick.

It makes me really p---ed off! Basically when it comes to luxury items, if you haven't got it in the bank then you can't afford it. Probably why my kids don't have PSPs or TVs in their rooms!

As you say there are some people who really get dealt bad cards and my heart does go out to them at this time of year. However - there are some people who think they should have all the luxury items in life and get them regardless of whether or not they can afford them. To them - all I can say is grow up! You can't have everything - be grateful for the things in life you can afford.

Merry Christmas xxx

other fine examples are ppl 'struggling' to make their mortgage repayments, yet the husband AND wife both have a new brand new (expensive) BWW or Merc on the driveway each.......

they get no sympathy for me, wow i have been hardened by London ...

My work colleague said her brother had just lost his job and has no money - the poor sod now has to live in a 6 bed house with just one pool and no tennis court. Thankfully the very expensive school his children go to have agreed they can continue at a 50% reduction in school fees!! If he has no money - who the hell is paying for this?

It is really unfair. There are so many who have lost their homes and who are genuinely not to blame - this sort of example just shows how unfair the system is!

solution: send them to earn and pay off their debts, working in poor countries. see how they get on in 6 months' time.

I passed my local 'bright house' the other day and there must have been about 20 people inside checking out the TV's/Game consoles etc. The same people then complain about how tight things are it's really sad people feel the need to pay such prices like bright house charge just to keep up with the neighbours/friends etc

"are there no prisons or poor-houses......"

:lol:

they're voluntarily in debt, aren't they? so it's only fair to be volunteering x hours to community work to pay off their debt.

In an ideal world - that's a firm yes! spot on.

sounds like my mum and sister and most of their friends, me and my partner save really hard to get nice things, then i get my mum and sister saying every single time, how do you get these things :x and my answer is always the same, we save up :?
i was putting £20 a week away from march this year and we brought the 42inch tv about a month ago and it was brought with that money, we dont drink either any more, which my mum and sister always do even when they dont have any money, dont know how they can buy it 5 minutes after complaining they are skint :thinking:
they have loads of those loans, people knock on the door and say would you like £100 and pay back £5 a week and they say yes! every single bloody time, and then once that is paid they can get bigger loans and pay even more money back
i have had those loan people knock on the door and i just say no, its not hard, and i try to explain to mum etc that if they saved up instead of getting those loans then they would get more for their money because they wont be paying them interest on top, but they still dont listen, and the worst part of it all is they have nothing to show for it, they spend it on alcohol and rubbish that they end up giving away
sorry its so long, but it kinda winds me up hearing them almost every day moaning and its their own fault :oops:

well my tv is approaching 10 years old now, 16" screen, lol, but hey it does the job. I'd love a top of the range plasma whateva but just can't afford one, simple as that, no way would I be putting myself in debt to watch programmes like I'm a celeb.

Some people just have no sense, take, take, take, spend, spend, spend - then expect sympathy, well, not from me;-)

Also what the heck was that woman doing taking out a LOAN? Now that is silly, hasn't she heard of the 0% interest on purchases credit cards available? :p

or theres the dwp loan where the interest goes back into the pensions department and for peoples benefits which you know shes claiming
