Hold-up
Many people wear surgical masks today to prevent the spread of the Covid-19. Others wear them to hold up and rob people. Can’t beat these thugs, can you?
True motive
Many good Samaritans have emerged assisting people in cash and kind. Is it from the heart or an early election campaign strategy given that the general election is less than two years away. You be the judge.
Delayed payout
Many breadwinners laid off nine weeks ago are getting more desperate to feed their families. The promised superfund assistance should have been fast-tracked for them by calling Parliament earlier.
Free show
One patient at the men’s ward of a hospital says everyone needs a “bit of humour” to lift the spirit these days. He was commenting on the nurse who did not realise she was wearing a see-through gown while serving them. None of the male occupants seemed upset by the kind gesture.
Food for thought
No need for revenge. Just sit back and wait. People who hurt you will one day screw up themselves. And if you are lucky, God will let you watch.
