Re: This Board Seems like it's Filled with People That...

That's kind of a drastic generalization of the entire board.  There are definitely people who expect too much, too soon, but there are also many who have a realistic expectation.  I had made it a goal to buy a car roughly 6 months from when I started rehabbing my credit.  Turned out to be too soon, and have bumped it even further.


I'd say that "filled with" is probably the wrong phrase.  The passer-bys tend to be the quick hit, quick fix folks, whereas anyone one here more than half a dozen posts has a good, solid, long term plan.
