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!!! ----- Original Message ----- From: Jacob Kruger To: NAPSA Blind ; BlindZA Sent: Thursday, March 31, 2011 4:44 PM 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 Jacob Kruger Blind Biker Skype: BlindZA '...fate had broken his body, but not his spirit...'
