Missed the beginning of the programme but is the daughter simple minded? Really I can't believe a 23-year-old could act so petulantly. If she were my daughter acting like that at that age I would be ashamed of her!

My ds twin toddlers throw less strops than these two twats!

I know!! The parents are going to take control now - think that is a good thing!!

the daughter spends a fortune of clothes that her children never wear!

£26,000 debt and they dont think that they have a problem at all!

If my DH had made me a wedding cake I would have been so happy. Out of character for me but that silly b*h needs a slap in the face or, more in character for me, a reality check.

If she spends all day sitting on the couch maybe she should take a part-time job because she obviously isn't into being a SAHM.

My gosh...... they are still teenagers.... they haven't grown up have they !!!!!

"I am 23 and I can do what I want".... pleeeeeaaaazze


joanneg · 21/09/2004 20:28

I KNOW!!! The way that she talks to her parents!

And her mother feels guilty - no need.... that girl doesn't realise how lucky she is to have such a mother

Awful awful girl. I would never in my wildest dreams have spoken to my mum like that!

Can't quite understand how such seemingly nice parents ended up with such a badly behaved, stroppy, petulant, childish daughter though.

I had an overwhelming urge to shake her and tell her to grow up. She sulked like a teenager for most of the programme. If someone had just saved me £400 I would be eternally grateful, not moaning about it.

Oh well. At least she seemed to learn her lesson by the end.

If you give me 26k yurtgirl I will try my best.

I missed the beginning but did she really spend £378 on clothes for the children?

I've never spent that much on clothes for my dd's mainly because I don't have that much money to spend.

I wouldn't be able to sleep at night if I was in that much debt.

I wanted to shake her at the start of the programme but it was nice to see them get it sorted at the end.
Yes her mum and dad seemed nice and goodness me, she was HORRID!!!


JoolsToo · 21/09/2004 22:59

She reminded me of Waynetta Slob!

Charliecat - do you REALLY think they're sorted - it was only one month later AND they've still got two cars!!!


charliecat · 21/09/2004 23:01

Well they were more relaxed so I thought more in control? And hed stopped smoking to compensate the not giving up the car, wish I could do the same myself, and they seemed to be more aware now that things can be done cheaper, but not losing any quality etc, so that will certainly help in the future..
