Oh, deary. Considering the vast majority of the London public think you’re over-paid and over-privileged for doing what is an unskilled job (hate to break it to you, kids), do not go and compare your plight with that of teachers.
ps. ‘Life choices, eh?’ Er, eh? If you want the holidays teachers get, go to university for a minimum of three years and become one, then.
