A WELL-OFF woman is making it sound as if she worked hard to inherit a generous cash sum from her grandparents.
Helen Archer contributed zero time or effort to the thousands of pounds she has been gifted, yet acts like every single penny were the result of her own tireless graft.
Friend Lauren Hewitt said: “Why do good things always happen to lazy people? Not that I’m saying her grandparents dying is a good thing, but you know what I mean.
“I was sad for her when she told me they’d finally snuffed it, then I was upset on a karmic level when she showed me what they left her. I’ve never seen a cheque with so many zeroes.
“I wouldn’t mind if she’d been a devoted granddaughter, but as soon as they went into hospital she drew up a spending plan. And when she learned they’d passed on she punched the air and shouted ‘ka-ching!’”
Archer said: “I toiled night and day to win the genetic lottery and get born into money. If you can’t do the same it’s because you’re feckless and idle. There’s really no excuse.”
