Communication Breakdown

7 months 2 weeks ago
#875258
Good morning all.


We are back in Pretoria and back to normal for a few days before we hit the road to Hillcrest. 


We arrived at 9.50 on Wednesday and in keeping with tradition the power went off at 10.00.

We then had more load shedding later and blow me (excuse the pun) we then had an unscheduled break on Thursday morning around 4 in the morning and we still have no power at this stage after 30 hrs and no indication when it will be back?


Let's just say we have a Communication Breakdown between the municipality and ourselves...

After numerous calls they promised to send someone to check the prepaid meter in the outside box as we have a substantial credit.

After waiting 5 hours we called to find out what had happened to the technician? Only to be informed that he'd been to the house, checked the meter and found nothing wrong.

I had a business card on the box that cleary had not been opened! No one had been to check the meter, but hey why are we not surprised! that they've closed the fault job card based on someone's inability to do their job🤬


Today starts a new round of communications which I hope will not Breakdown. 


As far as the weekend is concerned we have plenty of Punting options and it's worth listening to Zietsmans comments on the site and hope that the shares he had on offer give a quick return to the punters that came on board to help the man feed the horses 🐎 

Especially George 🙏 

I understand there has been a Breakdown in communication between Ziets and Humble as this is probably his last chance but all the best to the stables runners today .


We have the big WSB meeting from the Vaal on Saturday with some big exotics on the cards.

The same can be said about Kenilworth on Sunday .

On the subject of Hollywood a big thank you to Dev and the team for a very special Xmas gift 🎁 


Sunday is a big day in Hong Kong with some superb racing, more details on the site.


A big thank you to the extra contributions on the WHO are YOU thread.


Constitution Hill runs at Sandown on Saturday and is impossible to oppose but Shishkin is back over the Hurdles and hopefully jumps on terms and is an interesting inclusion 


Good Punting 👍 


A clip from my head banging days

Sure you are not interested in my problem

Just for you info a massive truck came past now with two big Afrikaans lads and I just caught them

Your meter is fucked meneer but we are only here to confirm it needs replaced we have to report it to the meter section but not sure when they will come ?

Service delivery at its best and I just read that a DA chap got shot 10 times for fighting against illegal power connections 🤬
