Val we found that if you sit on the left hand side of the shop, not the Lapa side, the monkeys don't bother you, they are too busy watching the people under the lapa and next to it and trying to steal their food, they left us alone there :lol: :lol:

If you go to Tshokwane, be sure to look at the lovely arrangements made from the wood that was washed down in the floods. We met Dorris Khosa, busy cleaning the toilet block on the northern side of the picnic site whilst singing religious songs. She proudly showed us the lovely "sculptures" she had erected in the flower beds near the toilet block.

There is a book in the shop where you can put a written appreciation.

Well done Dorris!

We were also amazed by Dorris' "sculptures" Hippotragus! How wonderful to create such beautiful "artwork" from the leftovers of the floods! It just goes to show, she sees the beauty in life and nature, not only the bad! :clap: :clap:

No offence to anyone :pray: :pray: , why should "we" be praising good service when we should be getting good, friendly service all the time. People should be going the extra mile all the time, no matter what job they have or do. I think that the service in some places has really become non-existent that when somebody does something that they should be doing in the first place, "we" seem to think that that specific person is exceptional but the sad truth is that whatever they did should be part of their daily work anyway. This is just my opinion............ :hmz: :hmz: :hmz: :hmz:

Just a nice thing to do I guess. And it tells the management about something going right. And it tells other people here about it and like me, I guess a whole bunch of folks will say yip I want to go and take a looksee. And actually people like to be told when they're doing a good job.

I feel that we are always complaining about bad service, when someone goes out of their way to give good service, let's encourage them, they are setting a good example for there fellow workers and it just may rub off on them, so let's give good service a :thumbs_up:and a :clap: :clap: :clap:

Rewarding good service, well if you leave a tip it's also rewarding good service, if the service is bad I don't tip, so we all reward good service in some way.
I really think that if you have exceptional service, then do as I did and compliment those you gave you that here as I did for the Tshokwane staff.

Moobox I am not sure whether you enjoy mielie pap, wors and sous/sheba. If you do, try it at Tshokwane. They make the pap in those big black three-legged pots and it (the pap) smells good too. In July the Boerewors that they served with the pap and sous had a distinct pleasant wood smoke taste to it. A person can always make up in the evening by eating extra low-fat margarine and not real butter on the potato cooked in the braai coals.

A little praise for any effort goes a long way, :clap:
And costs nothing but a little effort from us, :wink:
Also Encourages the folk concerned to "keep up the good work" :thumbs_up:
May even get some other picnic ares, camps and shops to make a bigger effort :wink:
And "well done Tshokwane" :thumbs_up:
