of sitting down at my computer and doing a post.
alas. I got sidetracked by a FB conversation. With somebody that I have never really conversed with although i’ve known this person for many years. when we met, she also met my then husband. They had an affair. He left her after he made promises to her that he had no intention of keeping. Suffice it to say we did not keep close contact as the years passed.
Now, she’s older, I’m older, we’ve each had our share of strife and heartache and we can now talk like humans. We will never be BFF’s, but we can talk about life, and should the chance present itself again, we will talk again. And leave the conversation better people.
Back to happenings now.
The bosses have been on leave since Monday. makes for a nice quiet work environment. And then, yesterday, the bomb burst. Firstly, they found a snake. Not a very big one, but quite a dangerous one.
Late afternoon the most upsetting thing happened. goods were loaded on the courier truck without paperwork. One of our guys were suspected in the theft. The police was called and he was arrested on the spot. I am both angered and disappointed in this whole thing. It’s creating such a lot of drama at work. We’re having a staff meeting at the ass crack of dawn on Tuesday. People are walking around on eggs. Trust has been shaken on all sides. And, sorry as I feel for this person, I can’t understand what he was trying to do. Make money? Sure. For how long did he think he would make money before it came to light? Did he think of all the other people that he’s affecting by this? Me, that have to do stock takes every week? Raba that has to do the stock takes with me and help me look for shortages? The other guys in the warehouse that is only trying to put food on their table? I had this man in my car. I gave him lifts more often than not. I spoke to him as an equal, helped him, gave him advice and sympathy. Did he give any of us a second thought? Don’t suppose he did.
I do not like drama. it’s just upsetting. I prefer to be left in my little corner and do what I’m supposed to do. And now, unwittingly, I’m embroiled in this whole thing, as are we all.
And then I heard on the news that illegal miners have dug a 2 meter wide tunnel underneath a road to get to gold ore. The road is now closed because it has started to cave in. What on earth is happening to my country? We went from something worth living in to a complete and utter chaotic free for all. Where you do what you want, when you want and for how long you want. Money, money, money. Rhino’s being decimated for a useless piece of hair. Elephants for their ivory. Lions for what – their dicks? Why? A president that’s sitting pretty, on all the tax millions. With people idiotic enough to think him the best thing since sliced bread. Africa seems to like their dictators fat and well fed while the people starve and do ANYTHING to get money. Literally anything.
It’s as if the dam has burst and all the vileness of people are spewing forth at a rate of knots with no stopping it.
Luckily, tomorrow is Friday, and we all know what that means. I get to see my baby again. And, for a little while, life would be good again.
That being said, I am still content with the life I currently lead. it could have been so much worse, but not really all that much better, and I am thankful for that.
Hope you are all still well.
May your days be long upon the earth.
And this song, because we had some real rain here tonight – with thunder. Too lovely…
