chop shop

No comment. Here comes another week. Don't think about urban doom and gloom, just paste a smile on your face and go out and smile at taxi drivers.

What did I tell you.... it's a much safer place now that Zandi is practising her karate moves...

Jun 26, 2008

Yoh, I wasn't asking for a demonstration but you know how Zandi is, can't hold her back. One thing though, I certainly feel safer with her around, now that she's taken up karate. Skelms - watch out!

Eish, some men would rather take their chances in a danerous bus than in the safety of their wife's taxi....

mercury retrograde

Eish, we're having a hard time of it this week. First the full moon drives us all a little crazy and now someone told Zandi about Mercury, so she's blaming a planet for us not communicating properly, when all along it's just her who's not speaking clearly. I always try to listen so I don't know what her problem is.

cold shower

We can all do without a cold shower in the middle of winter, hey. But we could also all do with a nice heater and an electric blanket. Eishkom, the things we endure for the sake of helping you out...

men chasing

Heh heh, I don't mind being chased by a man, even a cop, as long as he doesn't catch me....

Eish, I sound cruel, but it's the closest that Zandi is ever going to come to the Comrades.

drive like a taxi

Now don't think you can get away with anything and everything on the road today. Follow my example and drive like a REAL taxi driver, ie. no sudden stops, running red lights, cutting in, illegal overtaking, speeding, multi-tasking or narrowly avoiding cops.

If he lets a guy with one arm drive a car, why is he always after me when I'm talking on the cell and also using one arm - what's the difference? We're not doing anyone any 'arm.... I hope you're taking part in the Million Man March tomorrow... Zandi's been polishing her boots.

big noise

A big noise is more than what these guys are making. Eish, I don't think they've ever heard about stress, unless it's watching out for a taxi trying to run them down.

Yoh yoh yoh here's winter. Don't be like Zandi - spread some warmth around. (Actually she's only joking, they ARE for the passengers...)

blue sky

Very funny. Zandi and I feel like a trip to Rio, where the sky is the bluest in the world. Meanwhile we're stuck with this shade of grey which sort of mirrors our mood, today, petrol increase and all. But we won't go there now. Meanwhile revisit yesterday's blog to read and learn Zandi's take on "stopping crime for dummies".

stop crime

Now this is a good campaign and we'll do anything to help fight crime (outside the taxi). So if it means stopping to take the time to get to know other people we could all get along like friends, and maybe we'll put an end to some stupid prejudices. If we recognize that we're all African and all brothers (or sisters) under the skin, surely we won't want to beat each other up? It's worth a try.

Just as well, or that pile of pink tickets would just grow and grow...
