you take my money
Like everybody else right now, I am haemorrhageing money I can little afford while the greedy bastards out there have to downscale perhaps on their favourite vintage. I was so incensed on opening yet another bill this morning, I had to look up the correct spelling of \”haemorrhage\”.
My son and I are forced to pogo around this freezing flat this afternoon just to keep f@cking warm. This only works in the short term, sadly.
Let me amend that a little. More accurately, I stumble about and hop once or twice like a frog in a plaster cast while my son stands to one side and laughs.
The GHA don\’t wish to spend any monies funding maintenance on this building – and have intentionally witheld funds for the past five years or so – since it will be eventually coming down. Clearly, rent profits are better spent financing midweek pottery classes for their employees\’ creative edification; better to grease the wheels of public spending while throwing a wobbly vase. Meanwhile they continue to move new families in and nudge the balance sheet further into the black – unless they have invested that profit in an Icelandic bank, of course.
I could laugh, but the corners of my mouth are already cracked and bleeding. Stamping our feet is an altogether more sensible option.
