Are you currently under water?

My Mom just shared that my brother and his bitch wife are and asked Mom and Dad for a loan to "fix" things. I am trying my best to restrain my glee.

What about you? Are you under water or know someone who is.

I think my sister and her husband are. They tried to live large on her part-time bank teller job (and selling jewelry on the side) and his factory job. Always adding a deck or a pond on to their house, always two or 3 cars. Now they're trying to dump the home for the 100k they'll earn from the sale.

R1 If they're going to earn anything from the sale, they can't be underwater.

OP, why do you hate your brother and his wife so much?

I think my sister-in-law and her bf are. She works as a short-order cook at a little diner, and he is a maintenance worker at the local civic center. They are constantly going on those pyramid scheme "You Should Be Here!" trips and posting all kinds of "prosperity gospel" stuff on Facebook. We have no idea how they've been able to afford all these trip investments. There was an accusation from the BFs employer that he had stolen some AV equipment from the venue to try and sell, but then he supposedly offered the manager and his family some free nights at a nearby resort/water park for not saying anything. Yikes.

#2, they have to pay off debts and find a new place with that $100k. And I think it's going to take that plus more when the final bill comes in.

They got greedy and lost. They were offered about 100k more back in the mid-2000's but wanted to hold out for more. Then the housing crash...

Like totally-at least in about 25 years

No. Thankfully.

I've tried to live frugally and not spend money on dumb shit. Of course, there are those who will make fun of me for living below my means but, hey, at least I'm not in debt.

Not that it means much anymore. I should just run up my CCs and declare bankruptcy. Everybody else is doing it.

Pretty, as salinity of the ground water rises. . . .

Yes, completely fucked. Bankrupt, house isn't worth anywhere near what it was bought for, unemployed.

It's like the el that goes by Elwood's crib every couple of minutes. Jake asks, "How often does the train go by?" Elwood. "So often you won't even notice". That's how far underwater I am... and I don't notice nor care. I'm so far underwater, it's just like I'm not under water at all.

It's definitely sort of freeing... once it happens you just don't give a fuck about anything anymore.

Yes! Big time!!!
