Would You Buy A Mortgage From A Man United Fan?

I've been to see my mortgage advisor today.

Yes, that's life in the fast lane for you readers.

Anyway, we did the sums and decided now is not the time to make a change.

We got to talking about other stuff. And in the conversation I used the short time most football managers stay in their job as an example of short term thinking.

"Do you like football?", I asked.

"Yes I do", he said, looking slightly worried.

"Who do you support? I'm a Leicester City fan."

"Ah, a Fox. I don't usually tell people who I support. They stop wanting to do business with me."

"Who is it then", I asked, hoping against hope he wouldn't say Leeds.

"They are playing tonight", he said.

"Ah, Manchester United. They're OK", I said, relieved.

Then a conversation about our surprise anyone would loathe Manchester United when there is the infinitely more hateable Che$ea. And how much we are looking forward to the world cup, our hopes and fears for England, and the pros and cons of Crouch and Heskey.

We've arranged to meet again in 6 months.

Well there will be who won the Prem, the Champions League and the World Cup to talk about.

If we get time, we may even check my mortgage again.

Hey! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
