They sound surprised?
Let’s look at the facts.
You’re sitting around at home all day because you lost your job when the company went bust.
You have no money as they have given it all to the nice bondholders.
Your kids have all emigrated.
You can’t go down the pub as three of the local bars have closed since the smoking ban, and the remaining one only opens for an hour after church on Sunday. And anyway the bondholders have all your money.
There is nothing but utter shite on the television but you can’t even watch the utter shite since the power was cut off for non-payment.
So you are sitting at home in the dark.
Just the two of you.
Bored out of your skulls.
You wonder what you can do for an hour or two that won’t cost anything and doesn’t require any light or heat.
As the man says – It’s fucking obvious.
