Story one Magda- vicious mocking Polish Harpy Suckin’ us dry man, laughin’ her way to the bank, livin’ the high life in splendour while we toil away. Fetch my pitchfork!
Story two, Magda, hard-working woman, currently on dole, trying to change life.
Snippets, Indo- “‘Magda’ (36), not her real name, described her life on the dole in Donegal as a ‘Hawaiian massage’.”
Actual quote- “Magda can do a basic massage, a Hawaiian one and a hot stone one that she’s learnt at a free course organised by the social welfare office. You move hot stones across the back until the tension is gone. Sometimes people feel so heavenly that they fall asleep.”
Indo- “Asked to describe her lifestyle, she went on: “The day starts in the same way. I go to the beach to watch the sunrise. It energises me for the rest for the day.
“Sometimes I sleep till noon and the nearest beach is five minutes away.”
Actual quote- ““I always start my days in the same way: I go down to the beach to see the sunrise. It sets me up for the rest of the day. I used to sleep until noon, but now I don’t want to waste my life.”
And so forth. Ah, the Indo, it never ceases to amaze me how deep the depth they will plumb to shit rakes a ‘story’ free from the muck.
