So I would not judge anyone.
This happened in the 80's in some parts of the country.
I recall a news show from those times interviewing a guy that was upside-down on his house, " I'm just asking for tre bank to help me out a little here".
I'm quite certain it never wold have occurred to this guy to 'help the bank out' if he had made a nice profit on the place. Anyone ever heard of a person giving the bank a % of the profits from a house sale? No? But people want them to share in the loss. How convenient.
