Driving past a new subdivision in Lehi today, I saw a billboard with a short list of people with money problems who could be helped, presumably, by this developer and his generous lenders.
Bad Credit O.K.
Me: hey, that’s nice of them.
Me: Wow… that’s REALLY nice. And maybe fiscally irresponsible.
Me: Hang on… *I* am self-employed. How is that possibly worse than BANKRUPTCY!?!?
And now, every time I drive past that billboard, I realize that I’m being subtly insulted. Rest assured, even if I were in the market for a new home, I’d not be considering one in that development. It’s going to be full of bad-credit, bankrupt, self-employed low-lifes.
