“Being in the unemployment system is so demoralising”, I sigh to my mother across thousands of kilometers of phone line before finishing the sentence that I’d started, “that I might have to consider prostitution just to pay the bills” a statement that is met as expected, unenthusiastically and tossed aside off with, “well, I’m sure something will come up and if you think job hunting is hard at your age, imagine it when you get to my age” to which I replied “yeah”, (sighing), “I have considered it and I’d *definitely* need to become a prositute then”, again she tried to brush off my temporary mostly-joking nuttiness with, “no one will want to pay for your services at that age, you’ll be too old” but I had her there too with, “Oh… there’s all sorts of sexual deviants out there, people are in to everything, someone will want to pay” at which point she gave up and I felt waves of motherly eye rolling before she handed the phone on to my father.
