Service survey
A mobile service provider is asking its customers to rate its service on a scale of 1 to 5. It says the survey text is free. It will be interesting to be told the result.
Still running
A man who gave his “veteran punter” friend some money to bet on a horse during the Melbourne Cup race yesterday missed the live broadcast and later called his pal to find out how his horse went. The reply was “Your horse is still running.”
Loan shark
An irate loan shark entered a company compound last Friday to look for a worker who had not repaid the money he borrowed some weeks ago. It took four security guards to drag him out after he created a scene when he could not locate his “client”.
Not me
Some locals are good at telling, just by looking at the face and complexion of someone, which province one hails from. But it can be embarrassing if one gets it wrong. For example, a taxi driver who thought his passenger is tolai and started yapping away about how beautiful Kokopo is etc. The guy reveals he is from Fiji and cannot speak pisin.
Look out
Port Moresby residents have been warned to keep a lookout for a woman in her late 40s, brown skin, about 160cm tall who tells people they are being followed, then grabs what they have and disappears.
Thought for today
Never judge people on their first appearance because sometimes people who seem sweet can be the biggest snakes of all. And the people who look rude and arrogant at first can be the nicest people ever when you actually get to know them.
