Gauteng e-Toll, Another Way We’ll Lose More Money

I got this email recently about the new e-toll systems that have come up around Gauteng…

These “e-toll” systems are means of charging road users on the N1, N3, N12 and R21 in the Gauteng area by being “tolled by means of electronic and automated methods, thereby eliminating the need to queue at toll plazas. This automated non-stop method of collecting toll is referred to as e-toll.” (Extract from the e-toll website)…

There are some stories I’ve heard about why these tolls were put up. How true they are I’m not sure, but basically the reason is because the South African government borrowed money to build the 2010 soccer stadiums and this is their way of getting the money to pay back whoever it was they borrowed the money from.

Whatever their idea is and reasoning behind putting up these tol...

If You’re Gullible, You Can Google!

These WhatsApp rumours are getting old! Don’t they remind you of all the chain messages and stories spread that MXit would close down, or delete your account if you didn’t forward a specific message to x amount of people?

Underestimation

Don’t underestimate what / who? I’m talking about the youth, younger people. People otherwise considered inexperienced, those who always feel like people take you and your input for granted…

Ever done something someone said you wouldn’t be able to do, or had the odds stacked against you, only because those around you underestimated what you’re capable of, or even had someone try take advantage of you, simply because they don’t think you know what’s going on or have any idea of what you’re entitled to or your rights?

With all due respect, for those who are in further on in years, and I don’t mean this in a nasty way… But for these people, gaining someone’s respect is an almost given and people tend to trust your instincts and opinions more easily...

Mondays

Today has not been my best day to say the least. It started off badly and didn’t get any better. It was one of those days where things just go wrong and get progressively worse.

Something about today just didn’t feel right either. We really need to start trusting in our gut instincts more!

Why are Monday’s generally so bad? What’s with the whole stigma surrounding Monday’s?

So I wake up, only to find I haven’t got any clean clothes for work, so already I’m irritable...
