on the high-road to Needham

Headed toward trouble, often financially. "Needham" is not a specific location but rather a pun on the word "need." Primarily heard in UK. You're on the high-road to Needham with the way you keep spending money! Have you ever heard of a savings account? Billy keeps sneaking out at night, and I'm worried that he's on the high-road to Needham.
