House Price Crash Forum

Recommended Posts

Hiya,

Years ago my old man hit me with a 'famous' quote:

"When the whole nation is talking about house prices, they're gonna fall!"

Does anyone know who said it?

cheers

PS Otherwise, i'll bag it for him ;)

Hiya,

Does anyone know who said it?

cheers

PS Otherewise, i'll bag it for him ;)

The poor quality of grammar involved leads me to suspect that the orignal quotator didn't go to a good school.

Besides, the quote was given to me verbally, not handed to me on a piece of paper. Hence the 'original quotator' is blameless here.

Seriously, DYIV, how would you write it?

Yes. I know exactly who said it. Your dad! And a very wise saying it is too, if I may say so. You must be proud.

Neither did you judging by your spelling and use of a made up word.

Discretionary neologism by the ruling classes advances the language to the better.

Sorry, which particular aspect of the OP's grammar were you objecting to? Having taught English for a few years in the past I don't see any problem. Even the colloquial 'gonna' is acceptable..

Your posting however has 2 mistakes. Please correct and re-post!

I push it along in a rusty wheelbarow.

I understood your point, it's just that it's somewhat gauche and a bit off to refer to income brackets - there are a lot of people less fortunate who would never dream of earning what you pay in tax each year - using it as a brickbat is simply worse.

Danny Blanchflower trumps everybody on this thread; seemingly lobotomised at birth and earning more than the lot of you.

Pulling people on grammer and then totally making up a word is priceless!

Discretionary neologism by the ruling classes advances the language to the better.

I am sorry I didn't know you were part of the "ruling classes" :lol:
