[blindza] Re: Transport stuff - possible arrangement

JACOB, I THINK YOU SHOULD GO FOR IT!  RATHER GET A BIT OF MONEY OUT PER MONTH 
AND GET TO WORK, THAN, HAVING PROBLEMS AND, IN THEE END, PERHAPS BE WITH OUT A 
JOB!
WHEN WE WERE POSTED TO STANDARD BANK SIMMONS STREET, THEY PROVIDED TRANSPORT 
FOR 6 MONTHS..., BUT AFTER THAT I HAD TO TAKE A RETRENCHMENT BECAUSE THE 
COMPANY DID NOT WANT ME TO WORK FLEXI TIME BECAUSE I HAD TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS 
FROM PRETORIA NORTH, RIGHT INTO JOHANNESBURG.  THEE ONLY PERSON THAT I COULD 
FIND THAT WAS PREPARED TO HELP, WORKED DIFFERENT OURS TO MINE.  GOING WITH 
TAXI, BUS, TRAIN AND THEN AGAIN ONTO A NETHER TAXI, THERE IN THE MORNINGS AND 
THEN THE SAME OLD STORY IN THEE AFTERNOONS, TO GET BACK HOME, JUST DID NOT WORK.
I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR WORK SINCE THEN AN IT IS JUST IMPOSSIBLE.  NOW, I HAVE 
GIVEN UP.  I HAVE TO EXCEPT THAT I AM A HOME EXECUTIVE NOW AND JUST PUT MYSELF 
ONTO PENSION.  HAHAHAHA!  PITY, BECAUSE I HAVE STILL , GOT A LOT, OF, WOEMA, IN 
ME.  YOU KNOW ME!
I PRAY THAT THINGS WILL WORK OUT RIGHT FOR YOU MY GUIDE DOGGY, FRIEND.
LOVE YOU LOTS.
I KNOW THAT YOU HAVE MORE COURAGE IN YOUR BODY THAN MOST OTHER PEOPLE THAT I 
KNOW.  EVEN ONCE THAT HAVE NO EYE, PROBLEMS.  THIS IS TALKING 
ABOUT TRANSPORT.
WHAT YOU MAY SUGGEST, ONCE YOU KNOW THIS GUY AND YOU GET ALONG WITH HIM AND YOU 
FIND HIM TRUST WORTHY, THAT HE SLEEPS OVER SOME NIGHTS, TO CUT DOWN ON HIS TAXI 
MONEY. ... BUT THEN YOU HAVE TO FEED HIM AGAIN.  SO, ONE OF THIS, OR, TWO OF 
THEE OTHER?  IN THEE END YOU WILL FIND A WAY.
ONCE YOUR BOSS SEES THAT YOU ARE TOTALLY COMMITTED, HE MIGHT TELL YOU TO ONLY 
COME IN EVERY SECOND DAY OR SO.
PLAY IT BY EAR MY FRIEND!
THINKING OF YOU.
MAGDA AND LIARA.
WOEFIE, WAFFIE, SMILY FACE, LICKY, KISSY, WOOPY, POOPY, LOVE TO THAT BIG BOY 
THERE WITH YO!... INZY THE SHINY, BLACK,  BIG LABBY!!!

  Subject: [blindza] Transport stuff - possible arrangement


  Ok, aside from a couple of possible, somewhat informal arrangements with 
friends where 2 people are offering to make adaptations to their routines a bit 
to try help with my transport requirements - not sure that either of these 
would be perfect since it would partly require them to work around parts of 
their own routines, which would maybe make it harder to make this last 
permanently/consistently as such - my employer actually phoned me this 
afternoon and told me their one driver has offered to use the informal taxi 
system to come to my place in the morning, and we'd then use my car to get to 
the office, and my car would stay parked there during day, and in 
evening/afternoon, we'd use it to come back here again, and the driver would 
then again use the taxi system to get home himself - so my car would still be 
here at night, in my own garage, etc. etc.

  Only real issues is the direct cost of this would be basically R2000 for the 
driver per month, as well as then, obviously, petrol costs, maintenance costs 
for the car, etc., and I'd first have to make sure it was mechanically sound 
enough to be used on a normal, daily, commuting basis, whereas it currently 
only really gets used occasionally for either going out, to the shops, or for 
longer trips down to coast etc.

  Thoughts/opinions on this option?

  I haven't heard back from soccerMom.co.za via email as of yet, and might 
still phone them, just in case, but I sort of need to make up my mind whether 
or not to at least try this arrangement for now, by tomorrow morning.

  Suppose, at least this would be a sort of confidence builder for my employer 
etc., if that makes sense, and would also definitely make the driver sign 
something like a responsibility agreement, in that I wouldn't hold him 
responsible if something went wrong, unless he'd specifically caused it, in 
which case, then definitely.

  Like said, thoughts?

  Stay well
