I wonder where that handicap sign is? Notice that it is written in perfectly understandable English, but the fine is R300.

 

India? Rupees? That's just barely three and a half dollars. Not much of a fine.

 

South Africa? Rand? That's about $16. Still not much of a fine.

I think you’re right. South Africa. R200 = $10.60. But why is it in English?

According to wiki there are at least 35 languages in South Africa, 12 of which are considered official, including "English, which is the primary language used in parliamentary and state discourse, though all official languages are equal in legal status".

 

Maybe because the sign is governmental,...?

Probably, but an ornery part of the government. :lol:

India's nominal per capita income was US$1,670 per year in 2016, ranked 112th out of 164 countries by the World Bank,[4] while its per capita income on purchasing power parity (PPP) basis was US$5,350, and ranked 106th.[

 

The average salary in South Africa is 31,100 ZAR (South African Rand) per month. This amounts to USD 1,599 as per the latest exchange rates in May 2023.

When I was still working in aerospace there was a picture on a wall in the engineering department of two pilots in full flight gear, one behind the other, just hovering against a blue sky.  The caption was "Why, yes, we do have a stealth aircraft.  Why do you ask."

 

Someone had put a note below it reading "why be in a hurry to build a stealth plane?  Let's just tell the world we did and let them try to find it."

That ain't funny.

 

 A friend and his wife brought there granddaughter to visit and while we were on the deck enjoying the sun sh flushed full roll of paper towels.  I tried everything I could think of to clear the clog and ended up calling a plumber.

 

He and his assistant took the toilet up, cleared the clog and reinstalled it.  I was out $349.00.  Plumbers ain't cheap on Sunday afternoons during the Christas holiday.
