Out of hand
Sad to see authorities – police, road traffic, Covid-19 taskforce – obviously losing control of bus drivers who continue to carry more than 15 passengers and not enforcing the no-mask no-entry rule. It has gone out of hand in Port Moresby.
Out of line
One of our colleagues asking a question on the Porgera mine saga at a media conference was shouted down by one of the big men sitting next to PM Marape. He was reminded by his boss that reporters are there to ask questions of the PM. He should be asked what he was there for.
Too heavy
After the quarantine, man stepped on the scale to check how much weight he had gained. The scale said: Please use social distancing. One person at a time.
Taking forever
From a reader: It’s taking ages for the Covid-19 Control Center to update the nation on the pandemic status and test results. The quicker the turnaround time for results on tests, the better it is for those tested and health officials focusing on the pandemic.
Taxi driver
Taxi driver stunned passenger at the start of the fare with the story that the Covid-19 first hit PNG many years ago in the highlands region although he has forgotten what it was called then and what herbal medicine stopped its spread. Passenger wondered how such a story was concocted at short notice.
Food for thought
Stop taking everything personally, holding on to the past, over-stressing, sleeping in late, having a poor diet, fuelling drama, gossiping, complaining all the time, trying to please others. You will become a better person.
Top quote
“Comparing yourself to people doing better than you will only make you feel miserable. Use that energy to build yourself as a person instead.”
