    Default Property Dreams Turn Sour

    A slightly overblown headline, yes? http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/ar...ectid=10875566 A couple spent 2 hours surfing for their dream home before realising it was an error. Oh the poor things. 2 hours of their precious time wasted. How will they cope? Why won't the enter key force a new line in this window - it's doing in me swede.

    Agreed. POHM couple?. I have been hunting for my dream home for the past 20 years and do you hear me complaining? No. Get over it.

    They said they were "hugely disappointed" and "angry" at having wasted two hours because of a fault in the system.
    Sheesh, some people really need to get out more.

    I would suggest a couple of months backpacking around India may do the trick.

    LOL two hours wasted what a joke. Those house hunters should have a go at trying to buy a house in Austria or Germany it can take 2 years to find one!
    The mission of any business enterprise should include the aim to develop economic conditions rather than simply react to them.

    I would agree with jolly as for unfeeling...........I am pretty sure we would empathize with some who actually had a real problem( so long as it wasn't a self inflicted injury).
