Plan B: What is late and when is it ok to be late?, TV as punishment and more...

Rebecca wrote in the Daily Maverick about Judge Siraj Desai’s judgement on emolument attachment orders (EAOs) which was declared invalid and unconstitutional in the Western Cape High Court.

It is so great to see the courts making this judgement and you can just see they will make a real difference in people’s lives

John used to be irritated by people who are habitually late but not anymore!

Rebecca discusses the opinions presented in this article: [Optimistic People All Have One Thing In Common: They’re Always Late](http://elitedaily.com/life/culture/optimistic-people-have-one-thing-common-always-late/1097735/ )

The article claims that people who are always late are more optimistic than punctual people, and Rebecca finds this as total bollocks.

The former Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis

Rebecca Davies is fascinated by the former Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis which she says his farewell speech was a total panty-dropper.

Did you see his fallow actions, his movements, his words – "I will wear the hatred of my creditors with pride" and then he gets on his motor bike with his hot blonde wife and drives off into the sunset. I mean what a panty-dropper!!!
