I’d just moved to England and the guy I was seeing was obsessed with Nandos. He took me there on a date after I said I’d never had Nandos before (left out the ‘in England part’). He was trying to impress me and ordered a bit of all the different sauces. I picked up one of the hottest pieces and without thinking said; this isnt nearly as hot as back home, nor as good. Busted, i had to fess up; yes i have been to Nandos dozens of times. I’m South African, so obviously I’ve had Nandos before. Now I really truely the poor guy and had to explain (with the help of Google and Wikipedia) that Nandos, although Portuguese styled chicken, originated in SA. He refused to believe me and accused me of lying and even went so far as to say I’m actually Portuguese not South African. OK so my SA passport is fake then? After that, i excused myself to go to the ladies and snuck out the door when he wasn’t looking, leaving him to pay the bill.
Response to 21 Times Parents Failed At The Modern World:
My 80 year old Grandmother just got her very first smart phone. An iPhone 4s. Its my job to teach her how to use it. My uncle got it for her. My dad and I both wanted her to have an android due to the extra buttons. But she can’t work it and I about ready to give up. Worst part is my mothers 85 year old mother has had an iPhone for 6 years and has an iPhone 6 at the moment and never has any issues working it. She also has an iPad, kindle, laptop etc.

Response to Why I’m Moving Back To South Africa:
I was born in Port Elizabeth. It’s not a huge city compared to Cape Town, Joburg and Durban but it is an ever growing area. It was settled by British Settlers in 1820 so is more English than some other areas. I lived here for almost 20 years before i moved to the UK, where my parents were born. I spent the next 5 years in the UK and have recently come home for a 2 month holiday mainly to spend time with my family. I have been back for 2 weeks, and as much as I love this country and the weather and my friends and family, i am the happiest I have been in months, I will never move back here, at least not any time soon. It’s not because of the crime (Port Elizabeth is a lot safer than Joburg or CT, and I feel safer here than in Birmingham), its not because of the corrupt government or the ever failing Eskom, or the lack of employment opportunities. All those are true, but the main reason is because my life is not in South Africa anymore. Even though it will always be a part of my life. Right now my life is in England
