Series synopsis

I, Isaac, wanted an excuse (as a proud Northerner) to drink ginger-infused tea by becoming a member of the upper-middle class. Keoni (a pensioner) wants to feel young again by utilising the vast array of “youf’” words he’s learned at university to abuse me from the sidelines every time I make a mistake.
