Ben Stein's Pet Peeves

I had heard stories about this before Ben Stein spoke on CBS Sunday Morning. People that cannot keep up with their mortgages are dropping their keys on the counter and walking out the door.

Which does not solve your credit problems, people.

Worse than that is that some are leaving their pets in the houses they abandon. Can you imagine? As if the bank is going to show up the next day and magically find a new home for the 70 pound labrador that has no idea what in the hell is going on.

I might have some sympathy for people that were caught up in the market by unethical lenders. Perhaps. But this just makes me sick.
