Time Was (Circa the Span of a Century)
Posh coffee for a fiver?
Time was you could score a bag of chips, cop two cinema tickets with popcorn and fizzy pop, cough-up for four coffees, splash on a winter coat, nab a week’s shopping, pick-up a family car, have a cheeky pint on the way home . . .
. . . and all from a fiver, with enough change left to buy a modest six-bedroomed house in Kent complete with four acres and a gardener.
These days a fiver gets you a bag of air, and the bag is another tenner.
