Wow! What a stress as parents (23, 21) struggle to buy books, uniforms and supplies fi dem pickney (16, 11). But, man, the money (25) little bad — and getting samller. People a complain left, right and centre. My advice is to buy the essentials and avoid the bashment boot and bag. Mi neva know seh school bag could sell fi $16,000 and school shoes fi $5,000. No sah!

Why people start fi line up outside the branches of the two big (33) banks by 8:00 am? A what a gwaan? That is a whole heap a production time. It seem some people fraid fi use banking machine and online banking.

And mi glad the elderly men and women (13, 36) will soon have dem pension sent directly to bank. Mi nuh like see the ole people dem outside banks and post offices. We need to treat them better.

Friends, until we link again, walk good!
