Does It Worth Missing Work For Nothing?
I woke up this morning, as clueless as I was. Prepared for work. I had no idea what was going on. I put the radio on just so I catch up with news before work. As I was listening, I heard them talking about taxi strike that was also going to affect Mamelodi. In my mind, I’m like.. dude I’m ready for work and you telling me about taxi’s strike, really?
I continued anyway. When I got ready I heard the same news about taxi drivers going to match at the Union Buildings to hand in their memorandum. I just ignored it and packed my lunch and waited outside for the taxi. It took me 20 minutes but I told myself that I’m going to work no matter what happens.
When I got in the taxi I just laughed and asked myself, what strike is it on?. I got to work ok and I asked one of my journalist friend if the strike is still on. I was surprised to hear that it was cancelled!
Imagine if I missed a good time at work. It’s so much fun here. I love voluntary work, getting to help other people with growth, ideas and all that, it’s amazing. Looking forward to grow myself as well. I just like being busy..if I live a busy life then I will have no time to worry much about other things. And not forgetting that hard work pays!
