House prices falling is terrible, homeowner tells renter friend

A HOMEOWNER feels a friend who rents should be more sympathetic about her not making as much money as she expected on a property.

Francesca Johnson explained that her four-bedroom house in Bournemouth may yield a smaller than predicted fortune when she sells it, yet friend Donna Sheridan seemed strangely unconcerned. 

Johnson said: “I worked really hard to inherit that house and this is how the market repays me? It’s appalling.

“I’d expected Donna to be a lot more sympathetic but she just went ‘oh dear’. I suppose now she’s sorted in her cushy rented flat she doesn’t care about homeowners like me.

“When something goes wrong with her property she can just phone the landlord whereas I have to call a tradesman. But Donna looked as if she barely cared.  

“Yep, she’s sitting pretty in her one-bedroom flat with no bath so it’s stuff the rest of us.” 

Sheridan said: “If Fran was actually losing real money I might care. But instead I’ll just regard it as petty payback for me flushing my money down the bog every month.”

Are you a psychopath or do you sleep next to someone who snores?

DO you fantasise about murdering your partner while they sleep? Take our quiz and find out if you’re a cold-blooded psychopath or just sick of their snoring.

How often do you think about killing your partner?

A) All the time.

B) Every time you look at their selfish snoring mouth.

C) Never. You love them dearly, particularly those cute snores that shake the entire house and remind you they are alive and well.  

When you get into bed with the love of your life do you:

A) Slide an ice pick under the bed.

B) Ask them not to snore or you will not be responsible for your actions.

C) Look forward to spending another night listening to them snoring, or as you like to call it, their ‘sleep symphony’.   

What is the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?

A) Hide the axe you were about to kill your partner with during the night.  

B) Wake your partner up by throwing hot tea over them and shouting, “You selfish snoring toerag!”   

C) Make your partner breakfast in bed as a ‘thank you’ for the eight hours of beautiful snoring they did just for you.

It is 3am and your partner is still snoring loudly. What do you do?

A) Bash their head in with a bedside lamp.

B) Consider murdering them but then realise you are too tired to dispose of their fat snoring body, so sulk for the rest of your relationship instead.  

C) Take a photograph of them so you can remember this special moment of lovely snoring forever.

Mostly As: You are not a psychopath. You have clearly been driven to these murderous thoughts by your partner’s nightly campaign of nasal terror. 

Mostly Bs: You’re not quite a psychopath but you are on the verge of becoming one. Consider ripping off your own ears for your partner’s safety.  

Mostly Cs: You are definitely a psychopath. Do you even have a snoring partner or are you lying next to the body of someone you killed and stuffed earlier?
