Ugh.

It's just no fun out there right now, is it. Sorry.

The lady who posted the video originally, posted a couple updates on tik tok as well.

They are still married and now have a baby.

The mom doesn't want to have a relationship with then, the groom has tried to contact his mom apparently but the mother has no desire to be in their life.

Jeremy Hunt proudly announcing he had a £50 discount lunching out with friends ... thanks to his billionaire mate Sunak's ''eating out'' handout.
And this whilst so many people in the UK are struggling to afford food !

You would think that the wealthy would pay full price, wouldn't you.

Rich people can be some of the most frugal people around.

One thing I learned doing IC relying on tips, the addresses in the poorer areas tended to tip well vs those in the wealthier areas, the best tip we ever got was from a customer in subsidized low income housing.

It depends. When I met her, my wife was working as a housekeeper to a very wealthy family, from "old money".... and they were not at all tight with money. Her cousin worked for another wealthy family, the husband being a very well-known "self-made-man". She only stayed a few months, because she said they begrudged spending anything at all - the wife actually counted the eggs in the larder and told her to reduce the number she used when baking! Rich or poor, people are people, good and bad.

Indeed !
And this whole eating out handout is just shameful ! I wonder how much it will cost in total.
They could have given that money to the NHS instead ..... stick that on the side of a bus !

Try telling that to the people who work in restaurants, many of whom have been living on next to no pay for the last several months or have been watching the businesses they grafted to create fall into disarray. I'm sure they'd be grateful for your opinion.

So the solution is to give handouts to people who can afford to eat out anyway ?
Just give the money direct to the people who need it instead of giving it to the well off ones !
