Dastardly Avocado…this is your fault!
NZ Herald, our national rag, thinks it knows the real reason why people can’t afford a house. It’s because we spend too much on smashed avocado and flat white breakfasts at cafes on the weekend. In a flash of original reporting, the Herald decided to jump on Australia’s ‘Avo-Gate’ bandwagon and point the same finger at NZ Millenials (see the original article here – it’s so much funnier than what the Herald wrote).
So, maybe if we, like, cut it down to, like, one flat white and shared a plate of smashed avo on toast, we’d totally be able to afford that $700,000 house in Glenfield that used to be a P-lab.
