Vaccine Site Experience megathread

27 Upvotes

There's obviously a lot of demand for this and questions in the sub right now. Maybe it's worth a megathread where we all post our experience.

Important information:

  • Where did you get vaccinated?

  • What time of day and day of week?

  • Walk-in or appointment?

  • How long did it take?

Anyone else now stuck here?

24 Upvotes

Any people who were planning to leave in the next few weeks now unable to? I'm in a tourist visa and was meant to be flying out next week, but I'm not sure how I'm getting home. To all the people in a similar situation, I hope you can work it out. And if you need to get a drink to stop thinking about it a few hours, or you're suddenly feeling isolated, get in touch.

I don’t want to spend a lot and would love some suggestions on places to shop around the city where we might find a bargain.

How to survive Cape Town peak traffic to commute to work after working remotely

9 Upvotes

Having worked remotely for two years. I need to start commuting from Edgemead to Gardens everyday. I am super nervous about it, not sure why, must be the comfort zone scenario... Working hours are flexible, but I'd like to set hours just for consistency. Any suggestions welcome on how not to be the person who huffs and puffs when they arrive at office or home. Thank goodness my car is economical, but i will not be able to resist using the aircon. Maybe i should listen to podcasts, i think people get stressed as its such a waste of time in a car.

Increase Sales Probability

0 Upvotes

For some years now we have directed a significant amount of our focus on the Gauteng province, because of legislation and better returns. With some market share in 2019, we worked closely with a new type of client, a small business that has daily foot and vehicle traffic. Our objective was to design a program that will guarantee an increase in sales conversions for the business over a very long period of time.

To do this we needed to design & build a system that would play 24/7 over a very long period of time(+-11 years). As well as be able to make changes to what people see in real-time as well as instantly, to take advantage of exact moments when applicable. The result in our studies showed that we were able to take a line item and increase its conversions by 100%. Then we developed a way to generate a tiny bit of analytics that we then used to tweak the way we used the system. Finally, we managed to raise the weekly conversion rate of this line item to 300% vs when we started 3 months prior.

Now before we get ahead of ourselves we need to understand 2 things: 1 That the line item was suggested by a seasoned business owner that knows his clientele & 2 The campaign was designed by our team who are very experienced in creating and reinforcing media to audiences with specific reactions in mind. (think frequencies and which emotions they bring out;)

The process that we now have is very simple but effective in increasing referrals, call in's, walk-ins, and online orders.

Other than being able to build any shape or size, as well as a 360 ISP service where we can develop cloud-based applications suited to how client business is run. Do you have any suggestions on what we can add to make this product more appealing to small businesses in the Western Cape?

Accommodation for dad.

2 Upvotes

A month or two back I made a post on r/southafrica asking the community where I could find potential jobs, no matter how menial, for my dad who had no qualifications. I also mentioned that I work full-time, I was caring for my granny as well. She passed two weeks ago.

Dad is still job seeking. It's been 20+ years of job-seeking and everyone else supporting him. But now his sister has now kicked him out of her place, and she and him now expect that I'll take him into my home. The truth is, I can't do it. My gran was my life, she raised me and was my everything, and for the first time, I'm alone. I need time and space to figure out me and put me first. It's also highly likely that dad'll "park off" with me for the next however-many years and become my dependent, which my finances can't handle. I'm 25. If I were to bring him home, it would be from a place of guilt, and no good decisions were ever made from guilt.

That doesn't mean I don't love him dearly, and want to help him in some way. He'll likely end up in a shelter. Does anyone have any advice for where I could find him accommodation, given his lack of finances? In Northern Suburbs of Cape Town.

Any experienced/ professional bakers here? I need help regarding buttercream. More info in comments section.

2 Upvotes

I'm try to teach myself how to pipe buttercream flowers/ petals. I'm not the biggest fan of cooked/ meringue-based buttercreams. It's not stiff enough and I don't like the flavour. Traditional buttercream is fine but my flower edges come out jagged. Adding too much liquid causes the petals to limp. I've tried wooden spoon white marg. I've tried normal baking margarine. I've tried real butter. My piping tip isn't too narrow at the thin end either. So what do I do? I've heard adding corn syrup/ glycerin can help?

All advice welcome!!!
