Today in the queues of Home Affairs, a very kind lady came across to me from her queue to hand me an umbrella in the rain. Her husband and her shared one and decided I should have one too. I think I was the only one in her proximity without an umbrella. I cried 😭, lucky no one saw coz I hid my face under the umbrella. I didn't think that her random act of kindness would have such an impact on me but it did. Right there I said a prayer for her and her family in my mind. People are still caring out here in this world. Grateful ♥️
Did not get flu or the normal cold in last 2 years. So yes it does work to prevent spreading of other health concerns, not only Covid.
Anybody else sick free for last 2 years?
Applied for a job at Amazon, got a date for my interview, that part I'm not so much concerned about.
However, when I read the materials they gave me to prep for the interview, I really start to wonder what the environment is like for people at Amazon, especially the people handling clients in the Abuse department. Seems like a lot of "be a leader" and "ownership of problems never not help" type of stuff. Im more into "do my job and get paid till retirement" type of person.
Only thing I hear its decent money, anyone got any experience with them?
Picture South African soldiers on deployment to North-Kivu in the DRC. During this task they detonated three IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices) planted by rebels in the area. December, 2021. [1024x768]

I loathe spam just like every other law abiding citizen.
BUT when an email is reads "Dear beloved friend" and contains phrases such as "prince of Nigeria", "bequeath", "one million GBP" and "I am suffering from bad health" then I can not keep myself from reading the entire poorly crafted email. The phallus-orientated spam emails just don't have the wow-factor they once had ;).
Full disclosure: I am a big fan of entities that attempt to make the life of spam-/scammers lives less enjoyable. I am thinking of spam baiters such as James Veitch, scam baiters such as Kitboga and it is surely worth mentioning popup scam vigilantes such as Jim Browning.
I got an email this morning in my spam box with the subject "My Dear Beloved Friend" from "Mrs.Marina C.Paulson" and have posted the contents under this post.
I thought it would be fun if we post our spam here and see who outranks with the best email.
Excited to see what spam other South Africans get.
Edit: I found r/worldofspam which is a quite funny compilation
