1. Some day in the future our children will laugh at us

    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.
    silence
    Me: ok. give me some Econet airtime.
    Spar Till operator: no, I don’t have any. What about sweets, gum, a pen?
    Me: no. 
    Silence. Guy behind me in the queue is visibly getting impatient. With me.
    Me: ok, the credit note then. 
    this:
    Spar Credit Note
    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.
     
  2. The not so good of 2011 in Zimbabwe
They continued to rob us of our change. And by the looks of it, it’s not gon change anytime soon. The worst part is that we seem to have accepted it can go on.
