If you're on £250k and have no savings you are a retard. It's people like that redundancy was made for. (And I've been there (albeit it not on £250k!) before anyone starts hectoring).
not an unsuprising quote from yourself but yes wether its 25 grand or 250 life can change at the flick of the switch. and depending what part of the country your in 250k can be as equally quick to dissappear as 25k
You get a good wage then you get a better house, better car, better education for your kids to give them a better chance in their life. You work hard, play hard and possibly treat yourself to some things you wouldn't have if you were on 25k
so you work hard and then suddenly through no fault of your own you become ill, can't work and overnight the good life you had is suddenly gone.
it never ceases to amaze me just how spitefully jealous most Brits are instead of saying... you know what, good luck to them..but instead the standard mantra is look at that flash git he deserves all the bad luck in the world
Funny thing is ..the ones bitching the most about how other people spend their money....would tell anyone trying to tell them how to spend theirs.. to bugger off
