Seems like I have a lot of bubbling questions lately…
Here, in this lovely country, (Uganda), we have a number of words/names for people who are constantly on time. People who constantly arrive early, pay their taxes, drive with permits, hand in reports on time, always give their view in meetings – whether they are asked or not.
Goodie-two-shoes, teachers pet, too much gas.
And to be the exact opposite of that is seen as cool. Don’t roll your eyes it’s true. It’s a subtle culture that is slowly trickling it self into most of us.
We now prefer to be ‘a compromising, let’s not pay to close attention to detail, do what the boss wants when they are around but as soon as they are gone, let’s lead the revolt’, class of people.
What happened to Excellence? What happened to Integrity? Exactly what character are we grooming to pass on?
When did we become so lax?
