Wage packet job
Lee came round after his exam’ finished at half-twelve; we hung about and set off to Tesco at four.
Before going in we climbed over the railings at Nunstead Church and sat in the sun and grass of the graveyard in the back. Although we were surrounded on all sides by the hum and hubbub of human noise it was really peaceful; everyone slaves their lives away and goes round with sightless eyes and the very thing they search for is here, right in their midst!
Lee, (about a big old tree nearby): “It’s never had to work yet it just lives.” Creatures exist in their natural state but humans are considered failures or social outcasts if they do so. . . .
I got my first wage, but it was only £8.63 instead of the £14 I'd expected.
