The new stigma – for ‘single parent’, read ‘single car’

I’m telling my mother’s carer how swift is the train service from East Anglia to the north-east and how I wouldn’t think of using our car, even if my wife didn’t need it while I’m away.

The carer actually stops what she’s doing and turns towards me. “So you just have the one car, then?” she asks.

I don’t know whether to feel very, very ‘green’ or very, very poor.
