An arrogant employee of the Western Cape Transport & Public Works Department stopped at a farm in Rheenendal and sternly told old farmer: “I need to inspect your farm as a possible option for the Knysna Bypass.”
The old farmer pointed over his shoulder and said, “OK, but don’t go in that field.”
The government employee said, “I have the authority of the Government to go where I want. See this card? I am allowed to go wherever I wish on farm land.”
The old farmer shrugged and carried on with his farm chores.
Later, he heard loud screams and saw the government employee running for the fence. Close behind was the farmer’s prize bull. The bull, angrier than a disturbed beehive, was gaining on the man with every step!
“Help meeee!” yelled the man.
The old farmer called out, “Show him your card!”
