I know a couple who are in their early 20s, and they got a Habitat for Humanity House not long after signing up for one. They both have really good paying jobs and drive brand new cars. After designing their new practically gave to them home they bought very expensive furniture. I think this is crazy.

"Gave" and "practically gave" is very different. Besides being horrible English (should have typed "given"), those new homeowners have very strict guidelines on their mortgage.

You would know that IF you knew anything whatsoever about the Habitat for Humanity program.

No i dont know alot about it, but i work hard for what i have. Dont get me wrong i think some people deserve these homes. Most people are put on a long waiting list. Why not this couple? They may have strict guildlines but they are living it up

I am just curious why you think that buying new furniture is considered "living it up" ? I would also like new furniture in a new house, but we don't always get what we want. I doubt they had access to a large amount of cash after the Habitat venture was closed. They probably financed the furniture or rented it.

I hope your name comes up soon on that list and you also get a new home, but until then, don't "imagine" that you were overlooked for a couple with a young child who intended to "live it up".

Do you realize that people pay for their habitat homes? Shows how much you know. They are lo or no interest and zero down payment and they do cost much less as the labor is volunteer, but the family has to pay back on any material costs. I work hard too, but some people need a good break to get a family going. They are also required to volunteer in the community for this. It is better to be thought of as stupid than open your mouth and prove yourself as stupid.

First of all i didnt say that they were not on list i simply was stating that they moved up on the list quick, and new furniture is good but when you pay 2000.00 for a kitchen table maybe you dont need that much help . These people registered at JC Penney and belk because they didnt want anything from a cheap store at their shower. now come on

Wait, not on the list OR moved up on the list ? Quickly ? Well, two grand is quite a lot for a kitchen table and I bet you can prove that, right ? What kind of shower did these people have ? There would be no shower for a Habitat communion. If you would give names and locations, I can verify this nonsense with my supervisor in Atlanta and I can assure you that she can move YOU up on that list.

I know these people personally. Obviously everyone that has posted comments so far must be living in one of these homes. As far as my name on the list i have never applied for any housing and hopefully never have to. And another thing with the community service stuff yea they assisted in the building of the home and others in the family did but as far as now they dont do any kind of community stuff

I hope they also bought some large nets. I think there may be a green-eyed monster running loose in their neighborhood.
