Fandango’s word choice today is Reckoning
The day of reckoning was April 26th 1991.
A day when the money came in, but there wasn’t enough.
The Reckoning was all a matter of priorities.
Estate Agents took their cut, then the mortgage and house loans were paid off.
A previously agreed figure plus half a year’s interest for pratting about causing unnecessary delay was sent to the Other Party.
Out of the remainder, which was less than half the proceeds, two personal debts for a failed venture and Solicitors fees had to be forthcoming.
There was a shortfall of some thirty thousand, the only available option, bankruptcy.
Oh yes, a day of reckoning indeed due to poor money management, big ideas and bad decisions.
