    I know it is complete dribble and I should be embarrassed to be reading it, still, interesting where most people are at.

    One in three Aussies financially vulnerable, study finds

    Here's a sample;

    "But even with her above-average financial savviness, Miss Thompson, who is unemployed and relies on Newstart payments, says she struggles to make ends meet."

    Shame, shame!

    It's drivel and more than superficial aka "financial" porn I reckon.

    She goes onto say:
    “When you’re at school you’re in a bubble where mum and dad pay for everything but once you finish school and turn 18, you’re out in the real world — but there’s not enough preparation"

    So her mum and dad paid her way when she was at home. She calls that a bubble... but she herself is still getting mums and dads paying her way through her centrelink...

    Where do they find these people? Or are they just made up?

    A fair whack would be from Mt Druitt I'd say.

    They must be real, I've seen a doco on the television called "Housos", there are suburbs full of these types of people.
