3. £8 is totally reasonable for a burger, esp if it comes with ~amazing sauce I read about on Twitter.

4. I would never Instagram food just to prove I've been to a hot new restaurant.

5. £5 is totally fine for a pint of lager – you’re paying to be in Britain’s coolest pubs.

6. Course I don’t mind not living near a tube station, the Overground’s really reliable anyway.

7. I actually LIKE that it takes me an hour to get to work, I catch up on reading.

11. Oxford Circus won't be too busy.

14. We’re so lucky to have the tube, one of the best transport systems in the world.

15. It’s definitely not that busy all the time.

17. Manchester’s even shitter.

19. I really like small plates in restaurants, so much choice!

21. And having a drink while you queue is just like a modern apéritif anyway.

22. The night bus isn't that bad. It's like continuing the party for an hour and a half!

24. I'm paying to experience one of the best and most exciting cities in the world, and that's pretty priceless really, isn't it?
