23 Questions Every Londoner Has Asked Themselves At Least Once

When we’re alone in the big city, our minds tend to wander.

We can all relate to travelling on the tube in the silence of the morning commute, left only to our own thoughts and Spotify’s Morning Motivation playlist. Sometimes we think about the solar system and how the world began, and other times we find ourselves pondering the smaller, more pressing things (like pigeons and recycling…).

1. How much money would I need to earn to actually buy a house?

2. Or even just a round of drinks at the weekend?

3. Why do you never see baby pigeons?

4. It would be rude not to get two drinks at happy hour, right?

5. Does anyone ever actually use the Waterloo and City line?

6. Will ‘Cockfosters’ ever not be funny?

7. Why are there buttons to open the doors on the tube when they open automatically?

8. Why do I live here when I could be up north paying £300 a month on rent and £2 for a pint?

9. What is it about ‘please stand on the right’ that people don’t understand?

10. Maybe Bank is more than just a pain in the arse?

11. Why would anyone wear high heels to work? 

12. Am I saying ‘Holborn’ right?

13. Can I justify paying £20 to get into Cargo?

15. Do all university graduates move to Clapham?

16. Am I an alcoholic?

17. If I go out in Shoreditch does that make me a hipster?

18. Does anyone in London actually recycle?

19. Does my Uber driver really care about the fact that my ex-boyfriend’s brother’s girlfriend’s mum bought a new kettle?

20. Can I survive on just beans on toast until payday?

21. Are people judging me for Instagramming my food?

22. How long do you have to live in London to be considered a Londoner?

23. Will I ever leave?
