I’ll be in Stafford house Zulema, but you’ll be in the Unemployment Exchange.’ Pause Hello. Somebody coming. Salvation. She cranes up towards the window. Young lad. Hello. Hello. She begins to wave The cheeky monkey. He’s spending a penny. Hey She shouts. Hey. Get out. Go on. Clear off. You little demon. Would you credit it? Inside our gate. Broad daylight. The place’ll stink A pause as she realises what she has done. He wouldn’t have known what to do anyway. Only a Go to black. Come up on Doris sitting on the floor in the hall, her back against the front door, the letter box over her head. Couple came round last week. Braying on the door. They had a Bible. I didn’t go. Only they opened the letter-box and started shouting about Jesus. ‘Good news,’ they kept shouting. ‘Good news’. They left the gate open, never mind good news. They ought to get their priorities right. They want learning that on their instruction course. Shouting about Jesus and leaving gates open. It’s hypocrisy is that.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
