So yesterday 8 plain clothes cops storm into our factory and grab one of our drivers. All walking with sidearms with safety flaps unclipped.
They dragged him off and were gone in flash.
The stories started doing their rounds almost immediately, from murder suspect to using our trucks to steal water pumps and car batteries.
The morning he is back at work, so I ask him what the hell happened?
Tells me he bought a cell phone from a swap shop that was apparently stolen and they tracked it to him.
Anyway they nailed the shopkeeper and let my driver go. I don't know wheather to laugh or cry? :o

8 cops for a stolen cell phone???  :eek7: :eek7: :lol8:
Probably a violent crime when it was stolen.

The first I have ever heard of SAPS following up on a stolen cell phone.
They can all be traced.
They just never are.

Yes they do :lol8: :lol8:

Few years back my phone was stolen on my counter in the butchery. Got the info of who had it, the lot. Gave it to the police to go get the phone, because that would result in minor injuries.......Nothing happened.

Few days later, de moer in and gatvol for this lack of service I phoned them again telling them. I have catched the guy, got my phone back, but there is a slight problem in which way I coloured the story a bit and that he is tied and locked in my smoke room.

Now I cannot remember the response time, but 3 vans with 4 cops and 2 counselors were there in a few minutes.

I was then threatened with some nasty words, but in the end they did understand my frustration. Never got the phone back anyway

've just been rebuilding a GPZ750 engine. I didn't let it bother me when one of the piston rings snapped when I was putting the barrels on. I just stuck the bits of it in anyway. My  mate has called me a cheapskate in the past, but this time he says I'm really scraping the barrel.

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

Saw this in my Linked In feed today. While I wish the young lady every success with her new venture, I also wish someone will advise her to consider changing the abbreviated name of her company...

"I'll tell you what Jesus would do! He'd punch you in your fat, smug face, that's what!" -uncredited author in The Cleveland Freetimes

It's one thing to tempt Fate, and another thing entirely to spill its drink and step on its blue suede shoes.

Gravity - It's not just a good idea, It's the law.

There is no plan.....so nothing can go wrong.

Everyone is entitled to my opinion.

We've heard that a million monkeys at a million keyboards could produce the complete works of Shakespeare; now, thanks to the Internet, we know that is not true.
Robert Wilensky, speech at a 1996 conference

"Man will occasionally stumble over the truth, but usually manages to pick himself up, walk over or around it, and carry on." Winston S. Churchill

Sometimes I believe what I see. Other times I see what I believe. Occasionally, I don't even look.

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.....A. Einstein

"zen-like in it's near perfect balance of imperfection"

Every day I break my previous record of consecutive days still alive.

Experience is something you usually get soon after you really needed it.

Psst ... I know why a dog sticks his head out of a car window.

What could possibly go wrong?

IT'S A SMALL WORLD UNTIL YOU HAVE TO WALK HOME.

Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

The mouth of a perfectly contented man is filled with beer. -- 2200 BC Egyptian inscription

"Take it back to the dealer. Just like dogs, if you don't catch them in the act they never learn."

I spent all my money on Land Rovers, off road moto’s, drink and women...the rest I just wasted....

Even if you win the rat race, you're still a rat

If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice.

Famous last words..."Hold my beer and watch this!"

Sanity is relative; here in the asylum is where I belong.

"A closed mouth gathers no feet"

ya'll just need to remember that the difference between genius and stupidity is......genius has limits.

Truth is incontrovertable; malice may attack it and ignorance may deride it; but in the end there it is

"To become old & wise, one must first be young & stupid."

There are 10 kinds of people in the world, those that understand binary and those that get laid.

It isn't the conditions its the decisions

People are more violently opposed to fur than leather because it's safer to harass rich women than motorcyclists.

"I couldn't wait for success, so I went on without it."

The older I get the faster I was...

When it's all said and done, More will be said.

You can say any foolish thing to a dog, and the dog will give you a look that says, “My God, you're right!
I never would've thought of that!”

Never pick a fight with old men, they don't fight back, they just kill you and move on (unless they drop their piece).


A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have.-Thomas Jefferson

"Handle every situation like a dog would....
If you can't eat it or screw it, just piss on it and walk away."

"There is cowardice and foolhardiness, and courage is right in the middle."

God gave us shinbones so we can find the trailer hitch in the dark.

I once asked a liberal "What is it with you people? Is it ignorance or apathy?'
He said, "Well, I don't know and I don't care.'"

It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession, but I believe that it has a striking resemblance to the first.
