SELFISH AUNTIE REFUSES TO SHARE SEATS IN CAFE DESPITE LARGE CROWDS

I was queuing up in the Hans cafe at Holland today with colleagues. As the cafe was very crowded, and we saw this lady sitting alone at a table of 6, we asked her politely if she would mind sharing a table with us. She told us that the seats at her table were taken, so my colleague said it was ok and moved off. But I was very suspicious of her because she didn't look like she came along with anybody.

I offered to buy her tea at the HV market and tried to uncover her story and talk to the players to reach a better outcome. Oh, how it unravelled from there. She would make fake calls on her phone without actually dialling numbers, and furnished me with names and contacts that didn’t exist. She declined to say which bank the alleged loan was from. Nothing existed. I declined to give her $500.

Leave us alone, singing tissue paper lady tells Government

She is the singing tissue peddler, and she says she will not give up her job for any assistance anyone can offer. Not even from the government. “I started selling tissue paper 10 years ago. I like the freedom I have now. Whatever I sell, it is whatever I earn immediately. There is no middleman. When I am sick, I can take a day off and I will not make any losses.” “I know what most people will say to me. They ask me to rely on government’s help. “But if I spend my entire life living off government’s assistance, then what is my life for? I live a meaningless existence.”
