    YOU ARE PROUDLY SOUTH AFRICAN WHEN:


    You call a bathing suit a "swimming costume"




    You call a traffic light a "robot"




    The employees dance in front of the building to show how unhappy they are



    The SABC advertises and shows highlights of the program you just finished
    watching



    You get cold easily. Anything below 16 degrees Celsius is Arctic weather



    You know what Rooibos Tea is, even if you've never had any .



    You can sing your national anthem in four languages, and you have no idea
    what it means in any of them




    You know someone who knows someone who has met Nelson Mandela



    You go to "braais" (barbecues) regularly, where you eat boerewors (long
    meaty sausage-type thing) and swim, sometimes simultaneously



    You know that there's nothing to do in the Free State



    You produce a R100 note instead of your driver's licence when stopped by a
    traffic officer




    You can do your monthly shopping on the pavement




    You have to hire a security guard whenever you park your car



    You can count the national soccer team's scores with no fingers



    To get free electricity you have to pay a connection fee of R750






    Hijacking cars is a profession



    You can pay your tuition fees by holding up a sign at a traffic light




    The petrol in your tank may be worth more than your car



    More people vote in a local reality TV show than in a local election



    People have the most wonderful names: Christmas, Goodwill, Pretty,
    Wednesday, Blessing, Brilliant, Gift, Precious, Innocence ,Given and Sub-B




    "Now now" can mean anything from a minute to a month




    You continue to wait after a traffic light has turned to green to make way
    for taxis travelling in the opposite direction



    Travelling at 120 km/h you're the slowest vehicle on the highway




    You're genuinely and pleasantly surprised whenever you find your car parked
    where you left it



    A bullet train is being introduced, but we can't fix potholes




    The last time you visited the coast you paid more in speeding fines and toll
    fees than you did for the entire holiday



    You paint your car's registration on the roof



    You have to take your own linen with you if you are admitted to a government
    hospital




    You have to prove that you don't need a loan to get one



    Prisoners go on strike




    You don't stop at a red traffic light, in case somebody hijacks your car



    You consider it a good month if you only get mugged once



    Rwandan refugees start leaving the country because the crime rate is too
    high



    When 2 Afrikaans TV programmes are separated by a Xhosa announcement of the
    following Afrikaans program, and a Pedi ad
