Sweet Service Award goes to Clicks Cape Quarter; Sour Service Award goes to Discovery Insure!


The Sweet Service Award goes to the Clicks Cape Quarter pharmacy, for its excellent quick service. I had spent 90 minutes in a queue at the Clicks Hout Bay pharmacy a week ago for a script, but had chosen to not have an asthma pump. Discovering that my pumps had all expired, I went to the Cape Quarter Branch of Clicks, being nearby, and the pharmacist efficiently and quickly found my script online via my Discovery Clicks card. It took all of 10 minutes. Strangely my Apple Pay did not work in the pharmacy, which happened in Hout Bay too.  However, shopping elsewhere in the Cape Quarter, Apple Pay worked perfectly!

Corona Lockdown Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for a Wednesday with a difference; for feeling right as rain again this morning, getting a little more sleep than in the past week; for rain this morning; for getting my work done calmly and efficiently, despite a little explosion Camps Bay related; for the excellent news that Rhode Snyman our very non-efficient ‘Chairman’ of EbbTide is selling her apartment – hallelujah – illegally having a For Sale sign erected on Body Corporate property; for preparing for the status meetings this morning; for bravely sticking my neck out in asking Mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis on Facebook why no Continue reading →

Sweet Service Award goes to The Creamery in the V & A; Sour Service Award goes to Discovery!

The Sweet Service Award goes to The Creamery at the new Harbour View in the V & A Waterfront, and to Marvellous, for his marvellous service when I wanted to pay for my ice cream treat in cash. They only accept payment by credit card, probably not due to Covid, but due to staff pilfering! Putting R44 on a credit card is ridiculous! Marvellous found a way around this and made me a very happy customer, enjoying my treat on the shared outside terrace. Details of his gesture will remain a secret. Continue reading →
