Complaints ad infinitum

30 October 2012, 08:00
COMPLAINTS AD INFINITUM.

With some amusement and mirth I have to watch the passing parade of complainants complaining about everything in sight, some things not in site and a figment of the imagination. I like complaining now and again, often again and when the object of my ire appears in my vision then mostly forget what I was complaining about.   

This morning I again noticed a battery of complaints rising like the holy grail before mine eyes. In this particular case it was the almost defencelessNEWS 24 which had to absorb this attack from all the angles of a circle.- Why? The erudite masses did not like a headline pertaining to Tycoons and houses. “Tycoons  To Lose Homes.”  when I read the article I did not refer to the Headlines.    

So, on Saturday the mighty Province knocked the white smoke out of the occupants of the Shark tank and cracked the aspirations of the overloaded fan base of the Sharks. And did they moan on NEWS 24 about Heyneke, the WEEE PEEE coach and of course: The referee who was acclaimed the best in South Africa.  Complain or not you still cannot have your toast buttered on both sides.  Like it or not a spectator has never won the Curry Cup or any other cup for that matter but rugby has now become a venue where the complainants gather to distribute their professional and learned.      

My favourite complaint is taxation and old age pensions.  Old age not in my case as some would like to believe but those persons who receive a state pension of about R1100 per month. The miners on the mines now, still with little actual skills are after R18*000 after deductions. They cannot live on less but state pensioners have to get by on their pittance.        All are complaining about ESKOM and their inability to carry out their mandate but the only thing going out is bonuses and little of that what they are paid to distribute over the land is not available.  Or so say the bosses. (One day, if I can make it,  I will tell the story about MAJUBA PS. Then there will be even less smiles.    

We all like complaining about service delivery because it elevates us to a higher platform and we can shout down to those below us to “Pull a finger”In fact I believe many fingers were broken off during that process over the last 18 years. Then we complain  about rising costs of food and clothing, houses and cars and almost everything else too.     

To digress to our miners they may be in for a surprise when they see their first tax form and one can now hopefully see the state coffers richer and the excess can go to a OAP pension and improve the level of milk and honey in this sunny land of ours. Service delivery in the Free State and the Eastern Cape are running head to head in their bid to be the most backward province in SA. There, improvement of infrastructure is a natural process where nature takes over and leaving the provinces better than before.
