MILLENNIALS are innocently asking their elders if everything is okay with their enormous mortgages after all this interest business.
A generation of renters are concerned for all the Boomers and Generation X homeowners who keep muttering ‘my fixed-rate deal’s up in April’ and other such nonsense.
Grace Wood-Morris, aged 29, said: “Hey. Everything fine with you guys? Because you look sort of concerned.
“I never bothered learning about mortgages – why would I, I’ll never be able to get one – but apparently they go up with interest rates? Don’t know about those either, not having any hope of saving.
“But I see you’re all hot and bothered about the financial stuff which usually comes at the end of the news but is now the headline. You’ll be alright, won’t you? You haven’t overstretched yourself or anything?
“I sure hope you guys don’t trigger a crash in house prices or anything. That’d be terrible. They might be affordable for people my age. Nightmare.”
Colleague Tom Logan, aged 52, said: “Oh f**k, oh f**k. There’s no way I can afford my mortgage and the business costs. I’ll have to fire Grace.”
