For years Samsung made phones with screen protectors out of the shop, you know the screen guard that you now have to buy because they are too useless to put one of the new tablets. Oh but hang on they do put a screen guard on, joke is THEY PRINTED ALL OVER IT.
So after opening your Samsung Tablet you now have to go back to the store, pay some more cash for a overpriced piece of plastic because the company that made the phone, ohhh no they cant even get that part right.
Dion in Somerset Mall sucks. I dont care if you have you have manager discretion and all that but when a shop tells you to go get a better quote and they’ll beat it and when you actually get a better quote that beats their price and they suddenly change their mind, well frankly that just sucks.
So I had a really long day at work and on my way home I though hey, lets buy a phone because obviously I really needed an overpriced Samsung galaxy tab 2.
So here is what happened. I go to Dion in Somerset Mall, ask them how much for a Samsung’s disfunctionally named phone and they say oh, just about R5000 and something. Then the woman tells me , hey, go get a better quote and we’ll beat this one. Must be a Dion worker’s joke they play on their overtired customers.
So I go to the other side of the mall, speak to some overly tired Vodacom worker who gives me a quote in no time at all. With 5 minutes before the shops close I get myself in Dion just for the lady to then look at the quote like a dead lepper’s underpants.
First of all she disses the name of the poorly named phone. Then she goes even further and tells me that ‘Oh, let meeee phone Vodacom and see if they have this in stock’. Otherwise, no you have to go home and look at pictures of phones because if they no have this in stock, you no get phone. Stuff you with greetings from Dion.
So thanks for making myself with no pills run through the mall to get your stupid overpriced phone. Stuff you.
Tomorrow you’ll probably see me in one of those funny clips of a steaming guy that throws random stuff around the shop. That, by the way was an accident.
Saturday Morning at Rocking the Daisies these people were working the hoola hoops before most of the other party folks were up. There was one girl that really knew her stuff, most other people looked a bit clumsy.
What a great view of Chapman’s Peak. A recent rockfall could mean higher rates to take the famous tourist drives, a controversial building being built but this route still remains one of Cape Town’s most scenic routes. Controversial, dangerous or expensive it still remains one of Cape Town’s treasures.
Did you know that according to some ( because only some people claim this is true) the skyscrapers on Strand Beach is actually changing the wind. That causes the tides to change and gives the reason for stronger tides in the last couple of years in the Strand area.
On a calm day the Kleinmond shoreline might look safe but underneath the water lies a hidden danger many bathers are not aware of…. Tides. Kleinmond has some of the most dangerous tides we can find in the Cape Town area (ok technically Kleinmond is part of the overberg ).
On a rough day though the sea’s danger is obvious, massive waves smash against the sandy beach, sometimes catching unsuspected bathers.
It might look calm but it is Hout Bay seas that sank the MIROSHGA charter yacht this weekend. Calms sees and one of the most beautiful views of Hout Bay but also a reminder that in this ocean of ours is a lot of trouble.
Hipsterism is the new hippy… or something like that. Apparently the new fashion is an old one that’s just making a comeback. At least it doesnt look too bad. Hopefully the 80′s punk fashion will never make a comeback.
China Town is located in Parow, a massive mall with loads of Chinese goods that arent quite that expensive. Chinese brands are usually frowned upon but where else can you buy solar panels for under R100?
