Probably not true but quite funny

I left a broken fridge freezer out for the scrapman .. a week later it was still there, so I put a sign on it saying .. 'Fridge Freezer for sale, good working order £25' it got stolen overnight!
It's an old joke.

They're going about it wrong. Label the unwanted stuff "£5 each", and someone will steal them.

The guilt of being a Bank of Mum & Dad who can’t pay out: Divorced mother reveals why she envies parents who can afford to help their children financially

Sad but true: none of my four children will be able to buy a place of their own in London.

When I mentioned this to one of my colleagues the other day, she looked aghast: ‘But can’t you help?’ I almost choked on my coffee.

Help, my £1m property is a Stamp Duty prison! ... mmond.html
As the Mail reported on Saturday, high stamp duty charges on homes such as mine — it's a normal detached family house but in a ridiculously pricey area (Datchet village, just a mile from Windsor) — are making it very difficult to sell and move on, whether you're a would-be downsizer like me or you want to get a bigger family home or even to move to a new area, perhaps for a new job.

At £945,000 — the perfectly realistic agreed price on my five-bedroom house plus annexe — stamp duty land tax adds £38,250 to the buyers' costs. That's an enormous amount for any normal family to find, and it means more people are deciding to stay put.

[It was worth every penny!': How frugal saver gave up new clothes, gym membership and takeaway coffee... to bank £30,000 for London flat deposit

The 29-year-old ditched expensive cars,
Sorry we are not currently accepting comments on this article. ... -flat.html
Miss Bagalexis decided she needed drastic measures to be able to reach £30,000 in savings needed for a deposit.

She said: 'So, I moved in with my mum to enable me to do some intense saving – I had an agreement with her that I paid just a nominal amount towards my keep and I put the rest away towards my deposit.'
Oh, that old option that's available to everyone. The rent free house within walking distance of work.

Per-leeze. I remember being about eight and being mortally embarrassed by rising-C2 rellies who thought that they were the bees knees with their chipboard monstrosities in the corner, sporting bottles of Dubonet and Libby's Free Milk.

The only time I've ever seen one I liked was at a friend's father's house, but said house was a pharmacy years before, and they'd retained the old shop room, and packed it mostly with home-made booze.

That had character.

I'm sure they used to run those articles in the 1970s about slack parents letting their kids stay up to watch Kojak and Hammer Films to the wee small hours.

Does anyone know why kids need more sleep than adults?
