This is obscene

I had customers in my office today who were planning their first home purchase. They have a sizeable deposit, however they don't want to put it all towards the house. They want to keep $45,000 for their wedding. Yep, you read it correctly, fortyfive thousand dollars. That's Australian dollars by the way, which equates to around $34560 US dolllars, or $40951 Canadian, or $18702 British pounds. A lot, in anyone's currency. And a whole damned sight more than I'd ever pay for the privilege of treating a heap of friends to a drunken binge. I'm all for jumping over a stick on the ground.
