Service Delivery

Service delivery is not only the government giving free services to people… Yesterday I went to make a booking to for my driving licence test.. got there within office hours and I was then told they only process applications at 7am…. and after nine am they only help people within the precinct… which led me to ask myself what do they then do after 12 noon.

It is not as if a licence is free. the bloody thing cost R350 the least they can do is stick to their office hours and work accordingly. They are not doing me a favour by being there… they are paid!

Rockstar Life

Yeah I’m saying it I’m a rock star… but I alsom should mention I am a kak, friend…

anyways I got off from work, not knowing to watch the Bafana game, transport from the stadium, was going to be a problem. but FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out)got the better of me… this is the part I explain how I am a kak friend, at around 17:00 I called a friend and we agreed we are going to the stadium, 30 minutes later having found out that there won’t be transport back from the game so i decided to cancel our plans, the FOMO got the better of me when I got to Cape Town CBD, I immediately tried to get hold of my friend his phone was off… tred calling like 20 times (no lie). 30 minutes before kick-off (on my 23rd try) I finally got a hold of him and i could tell he was pissed.

back to the Rock Star part, I got off work, went to the game, went clubbing in long street till the morning and went to work the next day, like a boss!

Culpable Homicide

wow… what I understand from this term is that: it is the unfortunate death of a human being, at the hands of another, where there was no intention to kill or harm the deceased.

For example, you are street racing, you lose control of your car, you hit school kids, that is culpable homicide (remember Jub-Jub)

you are at a shooting range, shooting range shooting at targets, the bullet ricochets and hits an innocent by-stander, that maybe culpable homicide.

Drunk driving, you lose control of your car and you kill someone.

I am talking about the Oscar Pistorius Trial, the facts are:

  • Oscar heard a noise
  • Oscar took a loaded gun, loaded with black talon bullets
  • Oscar walked or stumped to the bathroom
  • Oscar aimed at the door
  • Whether startled or not, he shot at a closed, locked door, not once, not twice (given the “double-tap” story) but four times.

If in your book that was culpable homicide? I do not know.Oscar

Morning Roast

Yesterday, another colleague asked me “how’s the coffee, i think they bought new beans” my response was, “tastes like coffee, isn’t coffee, coffee, coffee?” i inquired

shocked dismayed and offend, he looked. I have come to realise there are levels to this coffee thing, i’ll start paying attention to the tastes, maybe i might just find the perfect roast

TRAINing Day

Hehehe, lol I’m not laughing, so I’m waiting for a train in Plumstead, listening to some music, “Wake Me Up” by Avicii is playing, I drift off into a little slumber, I open my eyes the people i was waiting with are nowhere to be seen and my train is leaving station and I’m not on it, and it’s like the train is riding off into the sunset… Amusing reallyI

I could be angry because I woke up early only to arrive just on time for work… But the irony of it all was just too amusing, stuff… My training days.

November to Remember

Actually I’m lying this this month was all a blur.. it was actually more of a rollercoaster ride… there were ups (My Birthday), there were downs (embarrasing myself while out with friends) and there were “meh” moments but I will say i did enjoy this month, I just wished I could have blogged more often… 😦

ASF Conference

so tomorrow…. we might or might not go to the ASF Conference ya.. neh? as a friend of mine would say ‘T’s are T” which means “Times are Tough”

Times really are tough we thought we would have raised R 23 000 but we are R2 000 shy… not bad I’d say but the school will not see it that way, and add the R 2000 thats about $200 for my international readers (not that there are any 😦 ) 

blog later kids hope fully with good news

I have a concience… or do i

Taxi in the mean streets of Cape Town

So I was on a taxi from Bellville to Cape Town R20 (considering the economy that’s like $2) in hand. Got in as the taxi was about to get full, paid and waited for change as i did not know how much a trip to Cape Town cost. The conductor could have given me R1 and I wouldn’t have known any better

The conductor gave everyone change except for me.. I reminded him about my change, he responded with a “I got you”. Along the way another passenger got in and also paid using a R20 note. taxi travels for a few meters and the conductor hands me R10 change… I’m like cool.. got my change back.

The the second passenger gets off a few meters down the road and start arguing about change… I’m holding the R10 thinking should I say something? after their argument the conductor got in and said to me “I still owe you R8” then it hit me… but should I say something…? naahhh

So I paid R2 for a trip from Bellville to Cape Town,  btw way all guilt evaporated when i thought about how much the taxi industry balls (that is slang for they are raking in the money) plus these taxi operator are as rude as the rudest person you know

Sore Loser

My room mate is such a sore loser… a couple of weeks ago he got touched (that means i hurt his feeling) by the fact that i do not believe Spartacus was ever a real person

So he was yapping about how Spartacus was awesome and stuff… honestly the show fell off after season 1… anyways I blurted out “I don’t believe Spartacus was actually real”. He got so hurt you’d swear i said “Dude you’re a liar!… you have no credibility…. you suck!” ok admittedly I cannot be mean. Anyways he then rebutted by saying “If Spartacus was not real then I do not believe Jesus was real” 

I had a blank stare for a moment… not wanting to get in an argument I said “Okay, good for you”

Seeing he’s statement had no effect on me he then went on to say “If I don’t believe in Spartacus then I don’t believe in Jesus” pause…. how the hell did we get to discussing my religious beliefs?  So I was like “Dude, I never said anything about Jesus” then he said.. “but that’s what you meant because stories about Jesus were written and stories about Spartacus were written”

I decided to concede I cannot comprehend his understanding… you know when someone does not want to agree to disagree… and does not want to be convinced otherwise.. what do you do?

Inception

I know Inception is a relatively old movie. I recently watched it for the second time after revelations of whether Cobb was dreaming or not in the final scene.

The spin top did not stop… and I bet Chris Nolan ended the movie like that just for kicks… ok but why am I writing this blog… a friend led me to this post on 9gag.com

6679757_700b_v2

Which got me thinking… well from watching it again its true Cobb has his ring only when he is dreaming, but that is irrelevant…. Watching the movie 1st time was enough to know he was not dreaming…. because when Saito fell into limbo, Cobb as promised went in after him to remind him he was dreaming and he has to wake up  although Cobb finally found him decades later as he had aged significantly.

He found Saito, Saito shot Cobb, and shot himself, to wake up in the plane. Saito made the call and was granted entry in the US of A. His father then picked him up at the airport, brought his kids to him…. What was there to doubt.

I bet it was 1 idiot who got confused and then confused the whole world with him… whether the spin top continued or not was irrelevant, as we knew he was awake the entire time.

Until my next blog peace!!
