I’ll give a little bit of context here. I live on an army base with my parents and my brothers.
Last Christmas we had a few other family members at our house too, and because my Dad is the Captain of his battery he tends to feel responsible for the well-being of the soldiers in his battery.
So anyway, Christmas day comes around and my dad realizes that there are two soldiers on camp, with no family to celebrate Christmas day with, and so he invites them to have dinner with us.
We bought the two officers a present each and handed them to them as they were leaving later on in the day. One of them, let’s call him Peter, said that this present was the first he had received and was reduced to tears.
Fast forward three months, and I have just been offered a 14-month job in London. I’m only 19, and already in 30K student debt, so 19000 a year won’t help much. My dad started talking about my job to Peter, who proceeded to instantly call his parents (who live in London), who proceeded to say that I could stay with them for the duration of my placement.
I will have to pay food and rent, but this is nothing compared to the £700/month it would have cost to officially rent out a room elsewhere.
