Not so altruistic

The terraced house backing on to mine is occupied by students.  They're remarkably quiet, which could imply they're postgraduates, less giddy about independent life than undergrads.

I see that their landlord has suddenly installed a bench, table, large potted plant and two windowboxes, considerably brightening a bare yard. I briefly thought it was a pleasant gesture, maybe even an acknowledgement of the students' seemingly responsible attitude, but then my cynicism reminded me that this is the start of the period when postgrad students are viewing houses for next academic year....


The ones next door to us are so quiet I occasionally peer in through the window: and yes,there's an ironing board up, cans of beer everywhere, but so quiet...I hope they take *ages* over their PhDs.

Maybe he thinks they don't get out enough ;)
