Seems like a lot of assumptions and looking down on folk to me. I say, good luck to them.


I think there is a difference between criticism and sneering. Maybe ive read it wrong.
Apart from the fact I sit listening to their finances all day ergo making an informed and accurate description of the situation where as you aren’t.

Theres people i know who earn a fair bit more than me yet are always twisting a week before payday that theyre hard up.
Its not sneering & looking down on them. Its not wanting to endure their constant moans about something theyve basically just inflicted upon themselves. And its not a one off, its every month. When will it sink in & learn from their errors?

People weirdly seem to wear being skint, or at least telling people they're skint, as a badge of pride.

Every month it's the same patter, "i'm so skint this month fucking hell". Nice one, but you're tight as fuck with your money, never seem to do anything, and you get the same money as me. Nee excuses, just showing themselves up. Either that or they're squirrelling funds away into savings then pretending they're skint, which is also lifting patter.
Or perhaps they have mitigating circumstances they haven't shared or maybe they haven't received the luck you have, or maybe they just see things differently than you? Who knows, but if they aren't your cup of tea, why not just wish them well?

I can’t believe people actually discuss this stuff with work colleagues. I don’t think my lass could tell you how much I earn. I’m not even sure I’ve ever told my lass what I do in any detail after nearly a year of being with her. People seem to have no private life or have any dignity when it comes to money and discussing it.

Because he knows them better than you and is telling you. Why not take what he says on face value as he will know more about them than he has told folk on here.

In effect, you're moaning about people moaning.

You're assuming they are lacking the financial intellect that you perceive yourself to have, it looks like sneering to me.

If you know everything about that person's life then sure. I still don't think you're in a position to judge.

And you're now moaning at me moaning & sneering at me. We can all play that game.
And Im not assuming they lack financial intellect, they admit to it. It just staggers me where it all goes.

I thought I was offering a different opinion but perhaps you're right.

Maybe you could ask to see all of their incoming and outgoings and provide helpful tips on how to be financially stable?

Its like Mackney says, its almost like theyre proud of it. If you make a suggestion about money saving you either get accused of being tight or that they cant be arsed with it. Which is fine if you chose to live like that but just moan about it.

I am. I know what they earn and I know what they spend their money on. They slaver on about it all day. Surprise surprise it’s them lot who want their wages early.

Fair do's, moaning is hardly a redeeming quality.

Fair enough, I don't know intricate details of those I'm not fond of so I have no idea.

Found out today that the people I’m working for are paying us on our normal last working day of the month in December. Few people were really pissed off where as I thought well done.

Never understood the point in getting paid early. It’s like it has come as a shock to people that Christmas is coming those who are annoyed. I personally don’t spend anymore money at Christmas than I do most the year and if people do they should be able to manage their finances to cope with the extra expense. They’ll only end up fucking brassic in the new year anyway sponging off folk who don’t waste a load of money on minature spring rolls and prawn rings.

I certainly wouldn’t pay benefits early which the Nash actually do.
our first one in the new year is due 1st of jan. fuck knaa`s what theyre going to do though. Possibly pay us a day early. the joys of 4 weekly pay means i get two payments this jan, one the 1st one the 29th ish, then pay day skips to the end of the month. Be pleased when they finally join the 21st century and pay us monthly

Not at all that’s fair enough. I just find talking about work boring. She doesn’t need to know what I do other than a brief outline. Who cares. I leave work at work me like. No problem with people that do different it’s just not for me.

I leave work at work too and me and the wife never discussed it but we knew what each other did and how much each other made.
