Default OK So we did a runner......

Nearly 2 months back and feel we can breathe again.

Not happy about the situation and jump each time the phone rings or I open my email.....constantly waiting for bad news.

Am wondering if there is some kind of "support group" for people like this - to share experiences and keep each other up to date of actions taken by the banks?

This post will probably get deleted! Thought I'd give it a shot though

Are you intending to repay what you owe?

Where did you leave your car and are the keys in it? Could do with a laugh piling around the desert?

I tried the doors to a few ferraris, astons and maseratis. Sadly they were all locked with no keys in sight. The amount of abandoned cars just around marina and JLT is incredible.

Even though I hear all these stories, it still feels as if we are the only ones!

So some of the cars lying on the side of SZR just past Jebel Ali free zones are abandoned?

Where do these people put the keys, surely they would be near the inside of the tyre or in the exhaust pipe.
