I live in the wonderful and volatile city of Joburg in South Africa. Sometimes I get the urge to write stuff down. This is where it lives.

I really hate people who won't make the tiniest effort to be nice and help out when it costs them nothing!

The biggest example of this is those who won't take flyers from people at intersections. This is someone's job. Just take the fucking flyer! It doesn't cost anything and you can do what the hell you want with it... throw it away, recycle it, stick it up your ass - whatever!

Then last weekend I was at our local shop buying chocolate (OK - I really like the people who invented chocolate - you did good!) and the guy behind the counter was so nice and friendly and smiled at the woman in front of me and said "hello" and what did she do? She didn't smile or even look up - just shoved her stuff in front of him.


It took a lot of control for me not to just punch her out right there.

Ok - I feel better now.
