    I was just posting some numbers in one of the counting threads in the Forum Games section when I was thinking to myself how awful it would be to be overdraft on my bank account by the number I had just posted.


    Then I was reminded of a conversation I had with an elderly guy earlier this year, who says he can remember going to withdraw a tenner from his bank account only to be told he had insufficent funds. He queries this with his bank who tells him he is overdrawn by just over £2000!!!!!!! :eek2:

    It turns out he was a victim of fraud, so the overdraft issue was fixed, and he was soon able to spend his money as usual, but can you imagine how awful it must be being overdraft on your bank account by an amount such as that?!?! :zomg:

    I have actually met people who were £20,000, £50,000 and £100,000 in overdrafts
    many were just out of control
    first had taken it out to buy a pair of gold Rolexes
    second was spending it to keep up appearance when work was slow
    third was a watch collector who put it all into watches

    I know. Serious bad times.

    Moral of the story: Don't go to an expensive university college in an expensive uni city, and don't have mental health problems involving mania that cause you to be rather erratic with expenditure. And always keep a weekly budget very strictly, factoring in EVERYTHING :sadnod:

    I don't even have an overdraft, just couldn't be bothered to open up a student account when going to uni.
