  • Harsher in Hindsight: When Lauren was trying to get a mortgage, the banker serving her told she doesn't qualify with her income and should try to find something more suitable for a teacher.

People having mortgages they couldn't afford, given to them by those banks that didn't really care about credibility of their customers.
