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?

Stupid stupid stupid
I was down on cash for ages - owed money left right and centre, and finally got a job. I got the boss to pay me cash for the first months wages in cash as I didn't want the bank getting first dibs on it. First thing I did before planning how to get my life sorted out was to have a joint and relax.

One thing led to another and I ended up thinking that the best way forward was to buy a lot of hash and sell it on. Lo and behold, someone offered to do just that for me - 600 quid and I could easily double it in a few days. "Genius!", said I, "What are we waiting for?"

"You'd better wait here, mate", he said, "They won't recognise you and it could go pear shaped."

I took his wise words to heart and settled back to wait.

An hour later I was getting worried.

Five hours later I was REALLY getting worried.

Five days later I had to get the folks to send me the fare home. I ended up leaving everything I couldn't carry behind and fleeing the country before I starved to death. Cunt.
