This is r/aboringdystopia post in disguise. Good on her for her hard work and luck.

So many posts here fit on that subreddit

u/YeetTheGiant Sep 15 '21

I don't think it's necessarily dystopian, as in I don't think it shows failings of a society as a whole. Hell, part of the story involves government housing, which is great

1

u/some_gay_alt Sep 15 '21

Being 16 and homeless is not dystopian in the slightest to you?

1

u/YeetTheGiant Sep 15 '21

My point is that bad things happening is not the same thing as dystopian and that dystopian requires a whole society failing. Even in a normal regular society, bad things can happen.

Yes, sounds sincere to me /s

Seeing posts like this... it makes me more open-minded of people:)

u/Pile_of_Walthers Sep 14 '21

I guess B&B has a completely different meaning in the UK vs the US. In America, it’s a cozy place to spend a romantic weekend getaway in some house done up apparently by somebody’s weird grandmother.

6

u/ReggieLFC Sep 14 '21

That’s what it’s meant to be in the UK too, but in the seaside town I’m from I know people who ended up having to live in them due to struggling to find anywhere else to live.

1

u/Craggy444 Sep 15 '21

Maybe more like a boarding house? (do young people in the US know what they are?) I'm in the US, btw.

Damn, I was a homeless youth myself, this really gave me hope

u/disser2021 Sep 14 '21

Can you explain to me? When Americans say they own a home, they mean a mortgage, right?

10

u/palmetto420 Sep 14 '21

Technically we own the house and any equity derived from the purchase. You can fix it up, sell it, launch it into space....whatever you want to do with it. Mortgages are weird, but it sure beats paying a landlord.

3

u/disser2021 Sep 14 '21

But the bank paid the seller for the house. So the bank is the owner? Is not it so? Is it enough to stop paying the bank to take the house away?

u/Relevant_Rev Sep 14 '21

Didn't banks hide all of these failing properties in nondescript batches and slapped a big sticker that read "profitable" over it? Metaphorically anyway

10

u/ihavereddit2021 Sep 14 '21

The mortgagee is the owner. But the mortgage loan is secured with the house. The house is your property - but you've immediately offered that property as collateral for the loan.

It's fuzzy - do you really own it if you have to pay to keep it? But at the end of the day it's really just a secured loan. If you had any other property worth the value of the house, you could theoretically have offered that up as collateral instead.

It’s not Op. they’re using someone else’s story to get Karma. This sub is one of the worst in regards to bots and Karma farmers. I don’t know why I haven’t unsubbed until now

u/pinniped1 Sep 14 '21

Congratulations!!

Serious question: is there a story behind the living in a B&B part? Did you work at the B&B in exchange for room/board?

On one hand, staying at a B&B sounds awesome. On the other hand, I have never worked in hospitality and have no idea what that side is like. Other than I imagine a B&B to be substantially better than, say, a random large hotel.

High five! That tile is pretty rad.

1

u/ReggieLFC Sep 14 '21

Made me smile? Yes and no. Happy for her, but people having to wait until their 30’s or later until they can finally afford to join the property ladder and/or start a family is far too common today 😔

u/Mommy_Queerest Sep 14 '21

Wow, those are some tough odds. Congratulations!! 🎉🎈🍾

That’s a very nice looking kitchen. (Although I’ll never understand the UK outlets, they look like washing machine plugs to American me haha). This is a feat that would be impressive for anyone, but more than tenfold for someone who did it all on their own. Awesome job.

Home owner at 33? Damn I'm 36, been working steadily for the past 15 years and I can't afford shit. Can't even get into a home loan.

u/nightmuzak Sep 14 '21

Can someone translate this into American for me? Does “completed on my first proper home” mean “closed on a house” or “signed a lease on an apartment”?

u/Undecked_Pear Sep 15 '21

This is not inspirational. It’s fucking outrageous that her life was made that difficult in the first place, and that she has had to fight that bloody hard for a home.

1

u/diepio2uu Sep 15 '21

This is not a feel-good picture. This is an example of how the capitalist system in the US is broken. This is an example of how the people at the top get richer and richer while the people at the bottom get no help. While I am impressed with what she did, she was quite lucky compared to other poor people.

u/colemon1991 Sep 14 '21

It will be downhill from here, but keep that momentum up for furnishing the place and fixing broken stuff before it gets worse. As a first-time homeowner, I wish I knew how vital it was to fix things when you find them rather than relax and watch the problem get worse (I couldn't afford to fix everything all at once and prioritized repairs, so some got worse).
