(Coffee shop chat.)
“Coffee! Luxury. Most of the time I’m drinking those crappy energy drinks to keep me going between jobs. You can’t get a proper job anymore and that’s only going to get worse. Every day it’s a few hours at one job and a few hours at another, day in, day out.
“It’s rubbish but it’s better than nothing I suppose. Energy drinks and cheap take-aways. That’s all I’ve got time for.
“But it’s wrong. I make mistakes because I’m tired. Tired or hungry or both. All you can do is hope you won’t do anything seriously wrong. But it’s all a risk.”
“A photo? Whatever you do, don’t make it obvious it’s me. I don’t want any bosses to know what I’ve told you.”
