I haven’t had a chance to go pick up something that I purchased online two weeks back, it’s currently at the Strubensvalei Post Office. I thought I’d go pick it up this morning, but somehow I struggled to find the location of the post office. Google Maps pointed me to the correct place, but I was skeptical seeing how some POIs are sometimes not at their correct locations.
I took on to the internet to find the address, and I kept getting Corner Fred and Harry Street. The ‘official’ address from postoffice.co.za was “corner Vrede and Harry Streets”. Problem is, there is neither Fred/Vrede nor Harry Street in Strubensvalei. I went back to Google Maps, and after a minute of looking I just thought:
These idiots, the post office is on corner Fredenharry, not Fred and Harry!
As the politicians always speak, heads must roll over this mistake! I ended up not picking up my package as I was becoming late for work.
I just had an awkward conversation with a guy in the office, I could see that he thought I’m someone he had meet earlier during the day. As awkward as it was, I couldn’t tell him that he’s got the wooing person.
Do all black people look the same? I’ve had a lot of incidents lol 🙂
I went to the south and back in a few billion yoctoseconds. It was soaking wet on the road, mom had to even caution me to drive like a granny.
On my way back the rain had stopped for most of the short journey. I noticed that my car was completely dry when I parked, and I might have a speeding ticket to my name. Since the car was dry and relatively clean, it struck me that next time it’s going to rain I should just apply a layer of car cleaner and go race it clean on the highway.
Problem solved, now to figure out how to clean the inside …
I’m glad I didn’t get that far ahead of myself. My dream of going church-hopping in 2014 was crushed a few weeks ago. I’ll still consider it as something to do maybe 3 years from now on though.
Today I’m off to a Men’s Conference at church 🙂 Look ma, I’m doing stuff that men do, does it mean that I’m finally growing up?
I just saw the post that I made over a year ago about the state of affairs at the CIPC. Just wanna say that Astrid Ludin and her team have really done great work. Company registrations are super-efficient now, and so is the other admin 🙂 Kudos!
