  1. 1 post wonder....... And so meek, he had to sign up for a new UserID to hide behind.......
  2. But now that you have decided to join in you've made yourself look a right prize twit.
  3. I worked in Pension's companies, the odds are stacked against you to live long enough to draw much if anything, there's a life lesson there for you.
  4. No she couldn't have saved all that money, I know her / there situation. It's funny isn't it, that both a MAN and a WOMAN are needed to produce a child, but here she is being LUMBERED with 4 children to look after them FULL TIME and with NO MAN who was responsible for those 4 children standing up to their responsibilities LIKE A MAN. Where's your criticism of the men involved here ??
  5. How very judgmental of you....... So when a woman stays at home for 20years to look after her 3 (then 4) children, whilst her partner (common law Husband) goes to work and provides, and who later on in life develops depression causing marital breakdown, sh*theads like you expect her to have saved for 20years for that eventuality ?? Like I said, you have no compassion nor any proper advice to provide apart from hindsight. I sincerely hope the same happens to you one day to teach you a life lesson.
  6. Doing it right now. Thank you all for the helpful suggestions. I'll do my best to keep you posted.
  7. Oh stop it please - where is your compassion ?? She was in a relationship for 20years. Him an Art Valuer at 'posh Auction house (which you'd all have heard of)' , her a Ballet School Teacher. They weren't your common wayne-waynetta types (sorry, but you're even making me make judgements here). And they were together for 20years - him developing Depression during that time. So 3 children during that time does not seem unreasonable. I suppose if she did marry him and then took him (legally) to the cleaners via the courts, your tone would then be what exactly ?? That she was a gold digger and that the legal system is unfair ?? I, as a man, have heard tooooooo many stories of irresponsible men who seem to think that the responsibility of providing for THEIR child stopped the moment after their relationship broke down (sooner if I'm being blunt). That makes ME personally ashamed to be a member of the male species. ......just re-read your post and realised you're very ignorant. Go re-read my posts. Children 1&2 are on scholarships - do you understand what that means ?? Child 3 is paid for by P1 and is expected to get a scholarship in 2 years time or he'll go to a state school - it's child 4 from P2 that is this issue here as that little girl is a 3 year old and they're are about to lose their home due to a drunk fool. Therein lies the problem.
  8. Thanks Cartimanua51, She does get some help from previous partner - he pays the child school fees for child number 3 (the first 2 children are on scholarships). I think she has got the CSA involved but p*ss-head has 5 children in total (not from 2 relationships either from what I remember). The illness for number 1 is depression. They are still both on speaking terms and it sounds as though they did give it and their relationship a very good go. The Drunkard's suggestion was for her to get out of the house and for them both to rent the house as an empty unit. When she confronted him with 'and where are me and your daughter supposed to live' he said it wasn't his problem. Yes, you are dead right about the students / lodger. The lodger has already found a flat to move to in the next week. The students are foreign and are going back to their home countries in the next 2 weeks. She is quite a posh lady (so ?!) and her 1st partner is a Valuer for a well known Auction house (fine art etc). Partner number 2 was a dreadful mistake by all accounts. Not sure what you mean by stocking up. Her job earns her peanuts (and I mean that literally). My advice to her was to try and save the house (as I'm convinced the uprooting of her posessions would be devastating for her). She's thinking of buying a shipping container and putting all her stuff in that and storing it somewhere. To be honest, the more I think of it, the more it makes me really sad........ Thanks for your help - it really is appreciated.
  9. Hi, I've got a female friend who is in a terrible situation - she is unmarried, her partner has left her in a deep mess. She had 3 children from a previous 20year relationship (never married). She then left him (due to his illness which she could no longer cope with) and later on found a partner whom she had a little girl with (3 year old). They (partner 2 and her) bought a house in joint names (I repeat, they didn't get married). He, subsequently left her in the house all by herself which she has had to keep afloat using students and lodgers - and he paid towards the house by way of voluntary contributions (apparently he has a drink problem). Recently, he had a bicycle accident and has been unable to work (he is a film editor). So he hasn't been able to pay towards the house. Basically, they are on an interest only mortgage and without his support, she is going to lose the house. He is playing serious silly buggers because whatever equity is in the house (not a lot) he is determined to make sure that she doesn't get any (even if he doesn't either). To me, a bystander, this doesn't sound right. A woman with 4 children is about to be made homeless because of a drunk idiot who won't even take care of his own 3year old child. Please, what suggestions can you make ?? This is very upsetting and unsettling for her and her children - who are very ordinary, nice people. Please, serious suggestions. She has gone to a Solicitor and CAB and neither have been much help. She really doesn't have a pot to p*ss in (she drives around with loose change to cope with food, petrol etc). Thanks in advance.
  10. Some of us (me and Catara) did try very hard to warn others. Unfortunately people only hear what they want to hear.
  11. My apologies to you too as well. I was only trying to help the OP by bringing his attention to things that maybe he hadn't considered (and I really didn't know the word awesome was going to cause such offence). Of course my French would be 'under the table' compared to other people's (and so on and so on etc !). Learning a language takes a lifetime IMO and, what amazed/frustrated me about my own abilities was the deluge of basic everyday words I simply didn't know (and how many others I didn't know and hadn't even considered). And if you're ever in a situation that calls for immediate natural speech, quickly (like say in a dispute, a car accident, something where no one is going to give you any slack, you will have your work cut out). Another example. The last dinner party I was at there was a Belgium who claimed his French was perfect (yes, there we go again) - we had a similar discussion as here (though no trading insults !) and I then simply asked him if he knew the word for 'puddle' in French ?? He didn't and there and then I'd made my point. Anyway, posting like this, it can be hard to make my point, so, I apologise a 2nd time to you too - no offence was ever my initial intention ! Kindest regards.
  12. Ha ha. That's a bit rich coming from you. I know you have issues comprehending written English, but re-read your 1st post to me. In that you insult me no less than 3 times (in the first 2 sentences, claiming this that and the other and making huge assumptions about my abilities and then finishing off claiming linguistic superiority when you know nothing about me). All I seemed to have done is use the word 'awesome' and you've blown a gasket (the reason I'd used that word was two-fold; 1) several times I'd meet French people who mistakenly thought I was French - which of course wouldn't be just on accent now would it !? DOH !! and 2) I have an issue with people who claim to speak a language 'perfectly' when I know that they are no where near perfect, in fact the opposite).
  13. Keep taking the Anger Management / Inferiority Complex courses..... ...and don't forget the Green Envy tablets as well (to be taken twice daily).
  14. That has to be one of the most stupidist comments I've ever heard.
  15. Why 'bother' ?? Erm, because it's good practice..... Sheesh, they're all out tonight.
