When you buy a car that you cant afford.

When you invite the neighbours round and then upset all of them by just being you.

When it seems like a good idea to call in sick because you've 'had a death in the family'

When you're sat by the loo because cleaning up sick from the floor doesnt seem exciting. Plus the cleaner (your mom) ain't coming for 2 weeks.

When everyone looks 28 and that's young.

When you can afford to buy 3 for 100.

When all you wanna do is forget the day before.
Hello Ron,
