I lived at a couple of addresses in London where I was constantly getting red bills addressed to the previous tenant, and phonecalls demanding to know where they were, and who I was. I didn't know why until someone gave me the "handy hint" to not pay my final bills before moving to a new address.

This sounds like a Viz Top Tip.

“Tired of having no money and some electricity? Why not simply stop paying bills - you’ll be “in the black” (the dark) in no time!”

During the credit crunch I remember someone here posting a link to some handy money-saving hints on BBC Speak You're Branes Have Your Say or something and one of them was "Save money on pens, teabags etc by taking them from work".

I guess stealing stuff really is an effective way of saving money though.

"Wee in your sink and save your shits for work.  You'll save ££££s on water and sewerage costs (as long as you are on a meter, if you're not on a meter leave the tap running all day)"

Remember “Speak You’re Branes”? That takes me back.

iirc the owner of that site stopped running it when BBC Have Your Say just got too ridiculous to ridicule anymore. If only BTL comments hadn't got even worse after that...

EDIT: http://ifyoulikeitsomuchwhydontyougolivethere.com is still live but it's hosting something a bit different now.

I used to love it. There weren't many websites that made me laugh out loud, but that was one of them.

Huh. Well I hope any delightful soul researching the concept of if you like it so much why don't you go live there enjoys their saucy surprise.

I was a long time lurker, infrequent poster (under the handle “SoftTouchBritain” or something) but I haven’t thought about the place in nearly 15 years. I might have got that name wrong.

I used to love Speak Your Branes too.

I think I liked ifyoulikeitsomuchwhydon'tyougolivethere as well but can;t remember anything about it apart from the name. What was it?
