Poor Parents

Recommended Posts

Bloke at work says someone he knows parents have downsized in order to give their kids a 50k deposit. Silly me thought this guy was going to say how awful that that had to happen for them to afford to buy, but no, another sucker. He ended by saying 'lucky buggers' :lol: I suppose getting 50k is lucky, but not having to get a 160k mortgage for the rest of the cost, on 2 average wages for a 1 bedroom flat in Maida Vale.

I think he thought I'd be impressed or envious but when I said rather them than me he went a bit quiet. He knows my stance on HPC & made a 'joke' about cardboard boxes for my housing. I retorted that he would need them when his place is repossessed - he bought in 2004 :D
