    Street Names

    Not too sure whether this should be under the jokes section - but how many workers does it take to change a street name?

    Perhaps they felt it was a moment of celebration?

    much like the skills shortage...all the white people sitting at home with no work...while the unskilled people sit in the office without work...nobody to train them.

    Looking at the gathering, I believe we can confirm the flip side of that is "who was Hans Strijdom?"

    I guess this is what happens when you politicise the public service, but no double time is allowed due to budgetary constraints.
    Everyone wants to be there for the event (momentous occasion for the people's revolution that it is).
    But the sign can't be changed on a public holiday because the trade union insists the guy changing the sign must be paid for the full day at double time because he had to go to work for 15 minute's work.
    So the solution is...
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
