It’s a Wednesday!!!

And life has returned to normal with a humongous bang!

One traffic light dead. Twenty minutes of my life wasted there. Just because the local government is just as useless, if not more useless than the National government. It’s called maintenance people. Just a little maintenance and you will not have dead robots everywhere – dead robots that affect the economy.

But hey. They’re not worried. Regardless of if the robots are working, or if there are holes in the road, they still get their property tax. Makes no difference to them how happy or unhappy you are. As long as they get money, it’s all good. They get to drive around in big black cars, live in big mansions on the hill and spend my hard earned cash on their dreams, but not much else.

Nice to live in this country.

Something else they managed to screw up. IN the old days, you would get your licence. It would be printed in your ID book, and it would be yours for life, unless you do something to have it removed. Alas. The new government in all it’s infinite, dubious wisdom, decided that you will have to renew your licence every 5 years. I suppose somebody’s sister’s aunt got hold of a laminating machine or a laminating company and so we have to pay good money every 5 years to have a new little card to show that you can drive. Not only good money, but you have to take a whole day if you are going to renew your licence. Not a question of running in an out once to get it done. A whole day people. Hence my trepidation. I had applied for my licence, it expired in 2006. I applied again, that expired in 2011. I have applied yesterday again. So I was kind of apprehensive as to the mechanics of these things, but luckily nothing untoward happened. Good government hard at work.

Back at work today, applied for two relatively high powered positions again this morning – may the Heavens be smiling upon me today and maybe, just maybe, my life could sort of move into some direction other than down.

  1. If only those darned politicians would get their priorities right, and realise that they are actually supposed to serve the people, not just their own comfort interests and bank balances, but that’s not going to happen any time soon. 😦 Good luck with the job applications. You’re sure to strike the jackpot one day. πŸ™‚ xx

    • The day our current government think about others before they think of themselves AD, the heavens will fall and we’ll all wear little blue caps!!
      And that only after the pigs have flown and chickens grew teeth…
      As for the job thing – I apply for everything likely looking – if you have enough hooks in the water, something bound to bite sometime πŸ˜‰

  2. Good luck with the new job apps. Crossing fingers! And you do know what I think of this country, so we won’t go into that now. I so agree! xxx

    • Like I christened Iraq the Great American Desert, I’m renaming South Africa to The Great African Suckheap.
      Apt name, don’t you think?
      as for the job apps, I can use all the crossed fingers you can spare Di πŸ˜‰

  3. Will it make you feel better if I tell you in my country we MUST renew our driver’s license EVERY year ($78.00 now). If a body wants, she can renew for two years every second year. ID pictures are renewed every five years (I think).

    Good luck with the job applications.

    • Every year? Are they nuts? Why?
      What difference does it make to your driving skills if you have a new little card every year?
      Makes no sense to me whatsoever!!

  4. I think it’s every four years in the States ~ only rarely do you have to retake the driver’s portion – where they accompany you on a drive… agh! I have my fingers AND my toes crossed for you, J!

    • We don’t have to take the test again – I’ll probably fail dismally should that be the case!! We just have to go stand in lines for half a day to get a new card.
      You should see the picture I let them take – looks as if I’m cursing the person looking at me!!
