Another Sob Story From Daily Mail

Recommended Posts

Surely to goodness this can't be real?

How does she think she can afford all that on £1500pm?

And how does she think selling the house would help if she's going to buy another for £420k???

It's not a " £500k house"

It's a House <_<

Pet hate of mine seeing a price tag attached in that way.

Don't see why it's strange she has such a house. Probably got some sort of life insurance payment and if her husband had been, say, the manager of a retail park Comet or such like on £40-45k a few years back that would have been the kind of income that would buy you a huge house in most regions.

Although they are at private school they don't get the treats their friends do, such as clothes, activities and holidays, because we can't afford it.

Blood... boiling.... ARRRGH.

F***king stupid posh B**** pleading poverty when there's a lot more people worse off than her. How F***ing dare she!

For F**** sake, run some articles on starving africans, not middle class pillocks who think they're hard done by just because their house hasn't made them thousands for them doing no work at all.

She BOUGHT for £405k, she could have SOLD to the cash buyer for £485k if GREED hadn't made her try to get £495k for it.

No sympathy. And her kids are all ugly too!

Okay, rant over I'm off to read the "combat barbie" article. :P

Hi Diane

Hope you posted {{{{Hugs}}}} as well.

But at least she is wise enough to realise that she is in trouble and trying to sort out her life, remember that at least 10 people read the daily mail so maybe one of them will realise that their insulated world is infact determined by events outside their control.

More popcorn anyone?

This paints a perfect picture of what is going on around most of middle England at the moment.

So here we have a woman with 3 children at Private School, Driving around in a BMW X3 looking to buy a £420k house living in a £575k house. We are told she has spent £90,000 on a new kitchen (the obligatary granite worktops) and bathroom. She is a member of the local gym and regularly buys expensive fresh flowers in between driving 50 mile round trips to drop her children off at school (were they take expensive classes and music lessons).

Take away the tragedy of her losing her husband early in life and you have your perfect Hyacinth Bucket. She is the sort you see sipping her Double frothy frappucino looking at you like you are dirt as you struggle past with your Somerfield bags. She is the one at the BBQ telling people loudly about how her daughter is taking violin lessons at her private school and how she may consider booking a boutique hotel in Thailand this year for her and the children. She is the woman you see in the 4x4 in every supermarket car park and High Street, huge sunglasses and screaming into her mobile.

This woman has lived her fake lifestyle on equity from property and now requires more equity to prop it up even further. She is struggling to pay household bills, has a massive overdraft and run up huge credit card bills. Now she is complaining because property is no longer running to the rescue. How many others are going to be in this predicament. I would suggest a lot more than you think.

What leaves me with little sympathy for this woman is that she has no need to drive a BMW X3, she doesn't need to be a gym member she could have spent £40k on her bathroom and kitchen rather than £90k. She could have even looked at buying a £350k house right by the school rather than a £420k townhouse. The reason she hasn't done any of this is because she wanted to be the glamorous middle aged mum. She wanted to appear succesful and she wanted to snoot at people less fortunate than her like Doctors, Teachers or Tenants.

Well the party is over for millions like this across the UK. As soon as they realise that the Property Fairy hasnt left anything for them under the pillow this year they are well and truly stuffed.

As any driver will know, when you are trying to get on to a busy street from a side street, theres always a big car blocking you, usually right on top a road markings saying "Keep clear".

She is type of person who looks right back at you in their BMW X3 and looks down their nose at you driving a Vauxhall Meriva. She is looking down her nose because she is driving a larger, more expensive car. What she doesnt realise is although I drive a "Minky Car" its fully paid for and her's is financed the the hilt.

She pushes in front of me in Tesco's flashing her Gold Visa Card and looking at me paying by cash and sneers, even her children sneer at me.

While my children would be avoiding a stabbing at the local comprehensive at play time breaks, her's enjoy violin lessons at the private collegiate.

While I work my ass off to pay for a few weeks in Thailand each year, her and her family are off on their 6th tour of Dubai.

But lets get real for a moment. I dont owe anyone a single penny and my lifestyle is sustainable, her's is at the whim of banks and the international money makers and shakers.

Her time and those like her is running out. To the bankrupcy courts we shall see her next.

I got no sympathy at all.

A dentist receptionist is living way above her means, kids at private school, bmw, spending £90k refurbishing house, debts on credit cards. She has lots of room to manuever to cut her living costs but tries to take the easy way out profiting on a house. Then the article says the buyer is a cash buyer who incidently pulls out because she didnt get mortgage approved before looking around. Her wage is very good for a receptionist as well she should be grateful.

Just a little reminder that if the story is true, this woman's husband died young leaving her to care for 4 children aged 0, 5, 8, 10 alone. One was just a baby, for Christ's sake. She is not a BTLer, and she does manage hold down a job as well as looking after the kids. She may be financially inept and a snob, but do bear in mind that she has been through a hell that most of us cannot imagine and, despite that, is trying to stand on her own two feet. For that, at least, she deserves some sympathy.

This sort of article is solving a conundrum I and some colleagues were discussion some time ago.

We couldn't understand who was buying all the high priced fashion/jewelry/consumer toys etc from the snooty shops that had sprung up everywhere. We were all "high" earners per the offical income statistics yet none of us bought this tat, we generally enjoyed sensible UK holidays, and our idea of fashion was levi 501's and M&S shirts. None of us ran cars worth over £20k.

At the time I suspected that it was all debt fuelled "keeping up with the Jones" from people like this lady, but found it hard to believe that so many people would be so stupid as to over extend themselves this much.

Seems I was wrong
