The Lava Trolley: Get in Line

The Lava Trolley

Or is it the lavatory???

...Either case, this little nook on blogasphere is the natural dumping ground for the sort of crap that erupts
when you find a wee Chink in the Britworks...

But hey, I promise you this is steamingly hot shit...which is probably why it's all looking a bit brown!

Get in Line


"David never knew his real parents. He was adopted by a couple
'who never should have been allowed to have a child',
and ran away from home aged 16.

He is 40 and has lived on the street ever since. Can't he get a job?
'I have tried, but they don't take into account you might be soaked
to the skin, or exhausted.'

Do you get depressed? 'Of course I do. But I try to keep a lid on it.'

Can't the Government get you a bedsit? 'I don't want a bedsit,' he says.
'I want what you have.' " - I've Never Liked the Homeless
by Liz Jones

Oh yeah?! You, and how many thousands of others?

I want a nice big house, a highly-paid job, and lots of lovely luxuries too, but I am far far away from getting any of that.

However, if I were homeless or about to become so, I wouldn't say no to a bedsit either...And I didn't, even though it was more like a shoebox. We all have to start somewhere.

No one can help you unless you first help yourself.
