You know you are South African when...? (the list you need to read)

A Canadian expat living in South Africa has compiled a list of thing to know when you are almost a local.

One of the things the expat says is that you don’t wait around like a dumb idiot when somebody says they’ll help you “just now” because you now know it will be nowhere close to now. Hahaha.

Here is the list they have compiled. Do you agree?

Hmm, this guy is having a bad day at the gym.

A teenager was busy lifting weights at the gym when one of the older guys came and chucked him out.

Apparently, the teenager was making noise when he dropped the weights...really?

To improvise, he places mats on the floor so that the sound is not too loud. Well, the older guy couldn't handle it as well and he told the teenager to get out.

Also, what do you do when an earthquake hits your town?

Well, this Indonesian imam continued praying while the other worshippers ran for their lives.
