On my way to work in the mornings, I tune into Wackhead Simpson’s radio show. He has this segment where they ask a caller 10 questions for a chance to win R10 000 if they answer all the questions correctly.
What I find surprising is that a lot of callers fail on idioms like “chip off the old – - – - -“, “beauty is skin – - – -“, “kill two – - – - – with one stone”. Yet questions on Justin Bieber are easily answered.
FRIENDLY WARNING: A while back I posted about my concerns regarding these cars offered from R499 no deposit no residual and you end up driving an advertisement. Well as mentioned in my previous post Martie my office mate’s husband bought one of these vehicles for her.
If you are like me, in that you want to be able to wrap your hands around a person’s neck and throttle him/her when you get bad service then do not go into one of these deals.
When you have a query or a problem there is no one to contact. You call a number and they politely cut you off … over … and … over again.
They enticed people to buy vehicles no deposit no residual and for a fixed agreed period you get R1 000 refund on your monthly installment if you drive for more than 2000km a month. BUT Without warning everyone who expected to get R1 000 off find that the agreements were terminated without any prior warning.
IMPORTANT WARNING FOR SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS: Criminals were able to get hold of some expensive machinery by stealing a credit application of a legitimate business and applying for credit with us. Naturally the account was approved and the machines were collected but when our rep went out to give the customer a courtesy call he was informed that they do not work with metal. We tried to set a trap when the criminals wanted to collect more machines but someone tipped them off.
I am still waiting for the retrenchments announcement but this is delayed while they conclude talks with the union.
What I discovered when I did an online search on Gobetweenflames:
One website claimed “Gobetweenflames.wordpress.com it is ranked #10,458,153 in the world” … Really!?
Another asked “How did gobetweenflames.wordpress.com get a Trust Score of 80%?” … I am not familiar with this website so I did not venture there – I know that I post 100% safe content.
I also found that in 2012 someone had me on their WordPress blogroll but I don’t remember this blogger at all.
I learnt that using the url to link a photo to your blog is not a very good idea because websites move or delete their content and then the image becomes unloadable after a certain period. It is advisable to save the image to your library and to give credit to the source.
The image search was wonderful and if you are going to do a search on yourself you must do this it was like going down memory lane. Quite revealing it shows personal photos, my interests and my favourites.
Thank you for reading this post. I dare you to do a post similar to this one on yourself and link back here sothat I can learn more about you!
Sorry I have not read any of your blogs. I am still struggling with weak internet signal, Telkom not eager to sort out my problem. It is the 5th week that my internet goes off just after 6pm in the evening probably due to heavy traffic on the Telkom exchange and they say there is nothing they can do to help me.
To depress me even more I got a notification from the new corporate management, who have taken over the company, a “possible restructuring and personnel retrenchment” meeting is set for next week when I have to re-apply for my job. Eight people will definitely be retrenched. Does anyone have any tips for me on how to survive this phase?
I’m very annoyed at the moment with my internet connection woes. From 6:30pm to 8:30pm I have no connection. I have phoned Mweb 4 times in the last 3 weeks and I have done all their ping tests and no one can tell me what the problem is. Mweb says it is not on their side. Telkom says it is not on their side.
When I do get a little burst of internet I find that the WordPress reader does not work or maybe my internet isn’t strong enough to load it so I can’t see the posts my blogging friends have written. Urgh!
