What, Don't Own, Not On The Ladder?

Recommended Posts

What's the worst conversation or put down non-owners have had?

(Please include any time spent with property owners who are incapable of doing anything else other than talking about what colour they are painting theirs).

:angry:

When one of my [lesser known] neighbours came round and asked me to witness their will. So, off I trotted round to their house. They had to get the value of their house into the conversation, and a comment on how it will double in value again. Dick head, I thought. Then I went home.

You should have signed your name as something else instead...

What really cracks me up is that Labour have created a type of class system that is as revolting and vulgar as any in the past.

"His car is worth more than you can get a mortgage for..."

The person they were referring was not very good at exams and left school as soon as he could. But he had a father who was a very experienced businessman, and he set up his son in business and guided it to success. I passed all my exams and I'm made to feel a complete failure.

Excellent point. So much for the party of "social justice". One wonders if they'll issue gold ID cards to the property owning class.

'i can't believe you're renting. i would kill myself if i had to rent...' :o

spoken by the girl who married my best mate... and despite the fact that he owned the house prior to their marriage and she moved straight in from her mother's!

'silly cow' was the expression that sprang immediately to mind... :lol:

the rest just seem to be the usual cliches... rent is dead money, if you don't buy now you'll never own, and yet those who impart this wisdom usually stumble when you ask them to clarify their point... almost as if they're spewing soundbites they've heard on property porn shows... :unsure:

everyone (should) know that social inequality and class divisions always increase rather than decrease under labour governments, mostly due to the laws of unintended consequences and the rich pulling up the drawbridges.

Alex Jones was saying this a while back.

Have a class system based on your colour coded credit rating.

Creating a society with clearly defined classes seems like another

way of keeping people in their place, and maintaining control.

It's scary how well it works.

A colleague who I consider as intelligent said

"The market won't crash, the govt won't let it happen'

When I asked how they could stop it, he had no answer....and moved onto something else.

Hence Phil Collins moving abroad.

So you resisted the temptation to point out that there is honour in being a renter as you're paying your own way, but none whatsoever in being a freeloader as she has clearly is?

I certainly know it... My parents are exactly the type of people who Labour claim to be in favour of, yet they have always been significantly worse off under Labour.

A friend of mine simply repeats what the papers say, parrot fashion. Back in 2003 it was "the prices will never come down," then it was "the prices will come down, it's inevitable" after reading a panicky article when the interest rates were going up, more recently it was back to "prices only go up and you'll miss the boat" after reading some VI claptrap. Arguing with him is pointless, because once you've challenged every assumption he just shakes his head and claims that "you don't understand" whilst making out that there is a bigger picture (which he conveniently won't explain) that makes his arguments all make sense.

Another friend of mine got a load of drivel from a work colleague who pointed to a graph that he was quite proud of, which showed house prices only going upwards over the last 10 years - completely missing out the last crash. I really wish I could have been there to point out that tiny "omission."

We don't want people in the UK who can support themselves from their own wealth.

We want people who come here to be supported by others via our taxes!

Death to Nu Labour!

oh! you know him personally? Yes dreadful man he is, giving his time and money on numerous occasions to help charities.

Christmas'eve dinner with my wife's family: my sister-in-law asked me "now that you both got married, you can buy a house"

I replied by trying to explain my in-laws that last time in Paris prices had doubled (1985-1991), they crashed 40% desinflated thereafter (199-1997), so now they had doubled again (1998-2004), it was better to wait

My in-laws were astounded and could not believe it. My uncle-in-laws (if such a word exists in English!) answered "it's risky to take this kind of statistical reasoning"

We changed subject

conversation with quantity surveyor mate [so he knows what he's talking about... ;) ], a man who i think has £250k IO mortgage, about 6x salary, more like 9x salary if he doesn't get his annual bonus... [which is dependent on them selling lots of houses.. ]

"its the estate agents, its them that encourage everybody to be so greedy"

not really a put down, but it did stagger me into nodding agreement with his wisdom...

the price of me been able to buy somewhere modest to live will be him and his family in a cardboard box i'm afraid.... and he won't understand how he got there...

a friend was telling me I should get a credit card like hers and how great it was because she earnt money back. I said I don't have any credit cards (because I chose not to and can live off my salary quite happily)and she replied "oh yes, sorry i forgot, they don't let people like you have them, you know, because your not a home owner like me"

I use the term friend loosely!!!
