Imagine this for your workspace.
It’s a joke right?
So you got Traffic Cops and Law Enforcement Cops on opposing sides, the traffic cops want a wage increase and are on strike, the Law Enforcement cops are there to control the striking cops in case of a riot and or other mayhem and the 2 start shooting at each other?
It sounds like the plot of a very bad movie, except it isn’t. It’s real and this is life in South Africa.
You can read more about this at this following link at The Times.
Let’s add this to the growing list of problems that are making South Africa the laughing stock of the world.

Bring on the bananas.
This was emailed to me and I had to share it
A father passing by his son’s bedroom was astonished to see the bed was nicely made, and everything was picked up. Then, he saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow. It was addressed, “Dad.” With the worst premonition, he opened the envelope and read the letter, with trembling hands.
It is with great regret and sorrow that I’m writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend, because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom and you.
I’ve been finding real passion with Stacy, and she is so nice, but I knew you would not approve of her, because of all her piercing’s, tattoos, her tight Motorcycle clothes, and because she is so much older than I am. But it’s not only the passion… Dad she’s pregnant. Stacy said that we will be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods, and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children. Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn’t, really hurt anyone. We’ll be growing it for ourselves, and trading it with the other people in the commune, for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want. In the meantime, we’ll pray that science will find a cure for AIDS, so Stacy can get better. She sure deserves it!!
Don’t worry Dad, I’m 15, and I know how to take care of myself. Someday, I’m sure we’ll be back to visit, so you can get to know your grandchildren.
Love, your son,
P.S. Dad, None of the above is true. I’m over at Tommy’s house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the report card that’s in my center desk drawer. I love you! Call when it is safe for me to come home.”
BBC interviews the wrong ‘Guy’
Red faces as job candidate winds up on air
I laughed when I read this.
LONDON, England (AP) — The BBC interviewed the wrong Guy.
The network has apologized to its viewers for a studio mix up that resulted in a man mistakenly appearing on live television as Guy Kewney — an expert on Internet music downloads.
In fact the man was Guy Goma, a Congolese man applying for a technology-related job with the British Broadcasting Corp. Goma followed an employee to the studio after a mistake at a reception desk, the corporation said late Monday.
The BBC said it apologized to viewers for any confusion.
