How doomed are you?
Excellent – a revival of the ouevre of the man they call Cressers.
An average of around 5.
But it looks like Mrs North isn’t handling her return to work too well, so I have advised her to sack off her job. Which will take up the doom/risk stakes to about 7.Posted 9 years ago
Marcus. Sorry to hear that. Much the same reason as I’m a 9. My biggest client is about to go bump and kindly came over to tell me yesterday that there’s no chance of me seeing a penny of the whacking great big mound of cash they owe me.
I expect to lose my
in that order. Very soon. Hurrah for Gordon’s economic miraclePosted 9 years agoRudeBoyMember
Hmm, taking 10 as the maximum (could this become the ‘Cresser’s Scale of Doom’?), and taking points off for good stuff, adding for bad..
Roof over head: -1
Enough to Eat: -1
Clothes on back: -1
Warm and comfortable: -1
Healthy (apart form mild ear infection): -1
Happy in career/job/work: -0.5
Have positive, happy relationships with others: -1
Not living in constant threat of war, disease, famine, etc: -1
Happy with current environment: -1
Enough money to not have to worry about bills and stuff: +1
So, 1.5. Life’s pretty bloody good, to be honest!
Of course, I could just mope around all the time, moaning about stuff…Posted 9 years agojfebMember
Sorry to read about people’s difficulties. At the moment I am about a 3 but should I fail to sell my house (currently underway) and lose my job (distinctly possible in the current climate) I would move rapidly to a 6 or 7.
The downturn in the economy has only hit hard in certain sectors right now. If you haven’t yet been hit you probably feel OK (more cash in your pocket vs last year etc etc). It is only a matter of time and degree though…Posted 9 years ago
