Lend Us a Few Bob til Payday?

So how much are you ARRSEurs in the hole for? How much do you owe Big Jack Harry at the shops in viggerish for outstanding loans to get you through?

Just read a report that Brits spl;urge 350 million pounds in the first 12 hours after they get paid! and then have to go hungry until the next paycheck because of the lack of cash..

more than 1 million adults blow 100 quid each while shopping during lunchtime on payday and another 2.5 mil go through the same amount on a apayday night out.

study shows that most have blown their wad by day 23 in the month and those living in the Northwest of England are skint by day 19...

bloody hell, folks!.. no ownder so many are hoping they hit the lotery or that Mr. Ngube isn't lying in those nigerian letters...

still 100 pounds doesn't sound like too much to spend on a right good booze up after

A lifelong addiction to motorised bicycles has left me cheerfully squandering the kids inheritence.
It`s those gits at Demon Tweeks,
Everything in their catalogue is just so damn shiny!!!!

At the tender age of 20something I owe the "soap dodging loans company" £9k.
I'm only £1k into my £2k overdraft at the moment - lowest for almost 2 years.
£790 on one credit card.
£500 on another credit card.
To put that in context I'm being paid £4k this year for 120 days fulltime work. So almost 3 years wages if I was to stay at same payrate (but won't, 20k next year). In rented accomodation - my credit score must be about zero at the moment!!
I normally work on being skint by day 17 - I live off the remains of my cupboard foodwise for 2 weeks - and any money that happens to come my way goes on sandwiches at lunch

I am getting decent wedge now, but I got a full Scorpion system for my K6 Gixer 750 that cost me. Need new tyres, braided hoses etc etc. And just bought a new Kato rep Shoei X Spirit 200 quid off. Still cost 300quid. Bikes drain your bank, and that is before my expenses for attending the GPs/WSB/BSB.....

I have even had to slow down on my drinking!
Just so I can get a good price for my kidneys on E-BAY.


Still, at least I can enjoy it while I`m here, the relatives can sort out the mountain of debt when I`ve gone


What you mean "Irresponsable!"

Singlie, in the block, only phone bills (taxi's and once monthly home) and the 50 euro t'internet bill going out!

Yup, i still have savings, and pocket money to get drunk on.

Save 50 quid (or 100 euro) per month, and xmas is easy, what is that??? one visit to a whore??? Knock one out!!! or find a 'forces discount, usual bar slapper'

3 blue wkd's for the price of 1 whore!!! money in the bank.

before you go out, share a crate between friends, then you are part way there, saving money, plus, the bond between drinking buddies is closer.

I'm not cheap, usually the first to get a round in, but that does give you the power to abuse the cheaper members amonst the crew.

As all should be aware, there are ways and means to get through the month.

But, the best advice, is take a deep breath on millionaires weekend, and think, do i really need that????

Then again, do you want to take advice from a clerk????

I've just found out that due to an inheritance, i've got 80k coming my way in a couple of weeks.

Huge dilemma about what to do with it?

Pay off the mortgage, put it aside for the kids, spend it all on fur lined sinks and an electric dog polisher.

any tips?

Spend most of it on whores and alcohol, and just waste the rest.

Congratulations

DR,CHARLES BOSAH
MUTUAL TRUST BANK [P.L.C]
HEAD QUATERS BRANCH
VICTORIA ISLAND,
LAGOS-NIGERIA.
DEAR FRIEND,

My name is DR CHARLES OBOSAH, INTERNAL AUDITOR MUTUAL TRUST BANK PLC. I am writing in respect of a foreign customer of our bank Mr.JONATHAN GHUNIAM with account number 14-255-2004/ASTB/123-99 who perished in an auto-crash in october 15 2003.

Since the demise of this our customer, I personally has watched with keen interest to see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as no one has come to claim his funds of US$9..5m (Nine Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars), which has been with our branch for a very long time.

On this note, I decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as the next of kin as no one has come up to be the next of kin.
The banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay more than four years, because money will be recalled to the bank treasury as unclaimed after this period. In view of this, I decided to seek through internet whom to confine in for this transaction. I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased.

So that the proceeds of this account valued at $9.5 million dollars can be paid to your account for sharing. 65% to me and 30% to you, while 5% should be for reimbursement of incidental expenses that may be incured during the transaction or tax as your government may require.

I will not fail to bring to your notice that this business is hitch free safe and legal. we have to hire an attorney who will protect you legally,and for benefit of doubt position you as the next of kin and beneficiary.that you should not entertain any fear as all modalities for fund transfer can be finalized as soon as possible.

When you receive this letter, kindly send me an e-mail on this mail box including your most confidential telephone/fax numbers and your address for quick communication.

Your Friend
DR CHARLES OBOSAH
