While so many ill-informed dumbarses in what passes for the MSM daily pimp a stream of hard luck stories of people earning good dosh, many returning from a lucrative and rewarding off shore arena, wanting to start their property ladder effort with a nice home in a nice burb with everything laid on, Stuff has a fairy tale of a couple not yet mid twenties looking to buy a third house.
A 'mechanic' and an 'administration worker' who admit they are "careful" with their money bought an ex state house for $220 000 three years ago when they were 21 and 19 after sharing accommodation with friends to save on rent costs while accumulating the necessary deposit to buy.
Clearly no gap year nonsense, multiple coffees, dining out, concerts, holidays to exotic locations, in fact a life style that almost all my peers lived as we made our way in what so many nowadays wax lyrical as to how we had it so good.
OK so this wonder couple are getting off their bums in Nelson but what a wonderful effort.
It is entirely possible when they reach the age of many of the whining that are being pimped this couple will go to Auckland having cashed up their portfolio in Nelson and do even better in the City of Sails while the pimped whiners are still renting a bloody garage, owning nothing while sitting at a table of a Ponsonby Café delivering yet another tale of ''woe is me" to a repeater from State TV
