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
