At least your family could afford pets. One Christmas, I received an empty cardboard box.

It was an Action Man Deserter.

The folks up the road had a cardboard box, we used to watch the family up the street climb into theirs ....

Pah, I wasn't allowed to watch the family up the street on account of licking the street clean for 1 penny an hour with a 2 penny an hour licence...

You used to watch them.... lucky cnut... We had to sell our eyes to medical science to be able to stay on the street.
Aye, I remember the scrabbling of fingernails on the windows when granddad used to bring out the week old copy of the Daily Mirror .....

We were so poor my parents couldn't afford to buy me clothes. I was so happy when I was 16 when they had saved up enough money to buy me a cap so I could look out of the window.

We had to commit incest just so we'd have extra fingers to eat. When someone starved to death, we had to bury them in holes we pulled out of our teeth, because only posh gits had a road to steal holes from.

Then we had to compensate the grave-robbers because we'd gnawed the skin off the bones first.

Cannibalism? Looxury!

When I was a lad, I lived in the south, so I wanted for nothing. My parents had jobs and I had a semi decent Education.
It's grim up north, init.
