...before Dave and Tony came to London, the two friends did actually hold respectable positions in an American bank, in an office situated in a delightful city in the south-east corner of England.
Responsible, professional and smart, the two friends were nothing like the two unemployed layabouts they have since become.
Sadly, all good things in life must come to an end, so when Dave and Tony were made redundant, they gave up on being responsible, they ceased to be professional, and they exchanged their suits for jeans and t-shirts.
But if they were unemployed, they certainly weren't broke, because Dave and Tony both left the bank with severance pay. YES! Cash in their pockets, and no more nine-to-five misery.
