You Know What I Don’t Get?

People using the word “revert” when they mean they will reply to you later. The definition of the word revert is as follows:
1. To return to a former condition, practice, subject, or belief.
2. Law To return to the former owner or to the former owner’s heirs. Used of money or property.
3. Genetics To undergo reversion.
It does NOT mean “reply” FCOL.


Why businesses have given up using some form of a spelling check on their billboards and adverts.


Why so many of my customers think I should be available at all hours every day because I do not have an actual shop.


Why ALL twelve of the traffic lights I have to traverse on my 12km twice daily round trip can’t ALL be working every day! Every SINGLE day, there is at least ONE traffic light that is off or flashing red.
If we’re lucky we’ll have a local policeman trying to play pointsman at some of the busiest intersections in the area, and if we are REALLY lucky there will be an Outsurance pointsman handling the chaos.


Why SA’s traffic police don’t do more active policing and be more visible on the roads to try to bring down or discourage traffic disasters and law breaking.
All they do is hide in the bushes or set up roadblocks so they can write out tickets and increase the traffic departments’ income.
They’re about as effective as high school prefects who hide in the toilets to catch the smokers.

  1. Angel, I would put a voice message on the Cupcake Lady phone stating that your office hours are from x to y time on whichever days are normal working days for you. Then there can’t be any confusion or complaining from people about their calls not being answered….

  2. I don’t get it either.
    I’m with you. We have an “emergency phone #” for maintenance emergencies after my office hours. And we live “on site” at our complex. Neither one which is a good reason for these people to randomly knock on my door after hours for non-emergency stuff. It doesn’t matter if you work at home, they need to respect your personal time!

    • Its different for my friends as I often take what they’ve ordered with me to whatever event they’ve ordered it for, or when they pop in to collect their order we have a bit of a visit and a hello-how-are-you. But customers who think I should be answering the phone at 8:30pm or on Sundays really bug me! Thats why I have two phones now.
