 I'm confused. Why didn't this woman get a job during her education to help the family finances as well as her sister? Why now, with all three of them contributing to the domestic budget, could they not have paid the rent? Why, while they were living as tenants, knowing that their rent was low, did they not set money aside as a precaution for a rent increase or a house move? Why was some of the money spent on entertaining or the purchase of 'glam' clothes not diverted into a 'rainy day' fund? Why was some of the big garden not used to grow vegetables?
I fear that a young graduate, in glam clothes, working at a media company has got that sexy edge to gain the ear of the spoilt world, when in fact the true poor have no such platform and will similarly wonder, why a family who had so much for so long, have not handled matters more wisely. The woman's anger should perhaps be used as an incentive and an energy for self reflection and new personal choices.
