Dirty but Nice ..... Die Ou Dae // The Old Days ...

Lydia Lindeque, the pioneering South African actress and wife of Uys Krige swore to her dying day that this story was true:

Around the late 1940’s in a small rural Karoo town, in a town-hall made of wood and iron, a traveling theatre company performed a play in Afrikaans.

 

The whole (white) town turned out. The mayor and the dominee, deacons and dignitaries lined the front rows.

 

The rest of the audience were all coloured, restless and loud behind the pound seats;obviously new to drama on the stage.

 

The melodrama proceeded.....A shot is fired. An actress pitches over sideways into the hero's arms. He turns, quivering, to the audience and implores, “En wat moet ek nou maak?”

 

Someone right at the back calls out, ....." ...
Naaai haar voor sy koud word ..".

 

The act is halted. The mayor confers with the dominee, addresses the audience and unforthcoming culprit; behave, or no more play. The coloured konstabel is set to stroll up and down the central aisle, brandishing his truncheon menacingly.

 

The actors crank it up again. On stage a cup of tea is sipped. With pinkie cocked, the hero muses, “Wat is darem lekkerder as 'n koppie tee?”

 

The konstabel turns to the crowd, his truncheon prominent in his hand...

 

As iemand
poe*s
sê, slat ek hom stukkend ...!”

Shame, poor dead lady, did she died because of her overworked sewing machine?

 

The constable should have been jailed for animal abuse. Foeitog, poor cat!!

Miems I see that you are dishearten by your first negative rating after thousands of positives on BoB.

I hope BoB will re-consider their rating system if a seller like you, with 1000s of positives and then suddenly, from nowhere a negative rating pops up.

When it comes to trading on BoB – we are NOT all equal – someone like you with thousands of positive ratings cannot be laughed off with a sudden negative rating – coming from nowhere - from a once-in-a-blue moon buyer.

 

Do NOT stop selling on BoB please - you are doing so well

Hi Pierre_Henri,

 

Thanks for your much appreciated kind words. Julle ouens smokkel met my brein :laugh:....and make me feel so shy.

You guys & girls gave me so much support these last few days. I really would feel as if I left you in the lurch if I stop selling on Bidorbuy. After all it's not Bob's fault.

However I will NOT give up my 100% positives without a fight.

Warm regards

 

Miems
