Housing Benefits

, | London, England, UK | Friendly | June 2, 2014

(My housemate and her friend are eating their food outside a fast-food restaurant and talking about their futures. My housemate and her friend are both 20. There is a bus stop a few steps away from them.)

Housemate: “I really do worry about post uni life, you know. It’s going to be hard to get a job in this climate.”

Friend: “There’s also the fact that we probably won’t be able to afford a house anytime soon.”

(A bus driver who’s on his break comes over to them.)

Bus Driver: “It’s so good that kids your age are thinking about the future! Good on you! Here, get yourself something nice!”

(He gave them a five pound note and then walked back to the bus stop. Not the biggest amount, but they said they managed to get a decent magazine with it!)
