What is stipend?
Describes the carefree, easy existence of moneyed young Brits; those teens and young adults supported entirely by unearned sources of income, esp. from parents/grandparents. Akin to the American "trust fund kid" existence, stipend life does not necessarily require a large amount of money and can be achieved through some combination of mooching from relatives, expecting others (but never other stipend lifers, as this would be taken as a sign of poverty) to finance things, borrowing heavily from family and occasional casual work (usually cut short by stipend lifers lack of motivation/discipline for anything not involving pleasure). Stipend life involves being proudly out of touch with normality. Stipend lifers bond by mocking ordinary, working people and their daily tribulations. Travelling must be in business or first class, if available, or private jet if stipend extends to this. Summers in luxurious resorts (e.g. Monaco, Cadaques, St. Tropez).
