This is a question Debt pron

Watching TV the other day we caught one of these "Bank of Mummy or the Wife" type shows and we thought, "This is Debt Pron." I.e. peoples financial problems exploited for the voyeuristic pleasure of others. Then we thought, "We bet lots of people on B3ta have massive financial problems. Let's exploit them." So, confess them all. Dodgy credit cards, lending money to some bloke in the pub, visits from the bailiffs, using one card to pay off another. We want to wallow in your fiscal pain. So, what is your biggest money fuck up?

« Go Back

Teh Pron
Not alot really, I left the army at the tender age of 22 to go back and get myself a degree. Now I joined up at 16 so those 5ish years had ment I had climbed the ranks and was earning a nice 26k PA, I made sure I had cleared all my debts (1.2k for a bike I promptly sold about a month after when I decided a car would be a better choice) and then served my time till leaving.

no appoligies for length, it scares the sailors off.
I am now living on 4 grand a year student loans and any finaces I can scrape. It appears that as I am over the age of 21 and a bloke and not a 16 year old girly, people dont want to employ me for part time jobs (you get an extra 50p on top of minimum wage for some reason being over 21 it seems, and that 50p an hour adds up to companies. Surely I can take ever person thats refused me employment to court for being ageist?). I've gotten pleanty of contract offers to work full time in my previous role, but that kinda doesn't allow me to get my education.
I remember the days of being a tax payer and moaning about those "free loading students" but now obviously I see teh error of my ways and realise I wasn't actually paying for thier education, they were with student loans and picking peoples weeds/painting fences/anything short of sucking off sailors down the dock, for 40 squid a week to pay rent.

No appologise for length, it scares teh sailors off
