I bought my friend an elephant for their room.
They said “Thank you.”

australian government: work for the dole
australian government: oh wait by work we mean apply for 40 jobs a month and do 25 hours of community service per week but we still won’t pay you for six months, good luck if yr a single parent, undereducated, disabled or in any other way disadvantaged btw we have no jobs lol
I am 22 years old, I work for the government, and this is my bed.

i have limited sympathy for people who get told “no” after a public proposal because public proposals are pretty much emotionally abusive
if you think it’s kinda cute, you can discuss it beforehand and then do a staged one later

really not okay
