So the conversation goes
Spar Till Operator: so what do you want for your change?
Me: my change.
Spar Till Operator: no. we don’t have any coins for change
Me: Well, get some.
Me: ok. give me some Econet airtime.
Spar Till operator: no, I don’t have any. What about sweets, gum, a pen?
Silence. Guy behind me in the queue is visibly getting impatient. With me.
Me: ok, the credit note then.
Like hundreds of other notes before it, this one will either lose its ink before I can claim the change, get lost, or God knows what happens to the rest. It’s ridiculous how we have let this go on for 3 years now.
Some day in the future, our children will laugh at us. For our sake we need to stand up already and put a stop to this.
