I came across this quite depressing image on The Guardian’s Facebook page yesterday night. At first, it was funny. Then a few seconds later, it wasn’t. At this time, I had become puzzled by the revelation. Not much because I tried to calculate what fraction of the total my salary would represent, or how much my total cost of living in the last three years (yes, I keep a journal for my inflow and outflow) suddenly didn’t ‘make sense.
