Aspiration Without Perspiration

by bryanthomas

"Adam, have you done your homework yet?" "Duh! I've got zombies to kill, Mum."

"Playing computer games won't get you a decent job like your father has." "He's a grease monkey."

"He's a technician!" "Mum, he's a mechanic, a spanner jockey. 'Technician' is just a sexy version of mechanic."

"The 'grease monkey' helps to keep a roof over all of our heads." "Yeah, whatever."

"How are you going to afford a nice house when you're old enough, Adam?" "I'll do what all the other people do who live in the best houses around here."

"And what's that then?" "Sell drugs."

@bernardtwindwil Thank you! Eventually, they'll end up in prison, or dead, only a few escape the cops to live the high life.

This is a huge message here also. The shame is that very few kids from the ghettoes have any opportunity at all for advancement but for gangs and the drug trade with everything that goes with-it. Great story!!!!!!
