“Husband had a call from a relative recently. This family sold their max mortgaged house in the interior last spring so they could move to Hope and amazingly didn’t lose money on the sale. Of course they took whatever money they got from the sale and immediately mortgaged a new house despite the fact that they don’t have jobs or savings or pensions. He shared that they would like to have us for dinner but they don’t have a table to eat at and no money to buy one. He also said he was trying to look for work but didn’t have enough money to buy gas to drive to Chilliwack which is the only place in the region that might be hiring. He is early-60s with health issues. While I think he is on the extreme end of stupid, I wonder how many other folks are living similiar unexamined lives and trying to keep up appearances.”

Anybody who can’t see the speculation in this kind of behaviour, and tries to argue that this is just a couple looking to put a roof over their heads, really isn’t paying attention.
