The soccer fever seems to have spread through the populace at lightning speeds…or at least the speed of sound thanks to our local vuvuzelas.
It seems that even the workplace has been affected by the soccer spirit. Well, in the positive sense I mean!
There is one little element that we need to be careful about. That is of course the bane of World Cup traffic.
As we all know the BIG GAME…that is, South Africa vs. The country that is going to be crushed by our power (Mexico), will kickoff at 4:00pm.
That means of course that if you want to catch the big game that you will have to get off work early.
Remember if you are working in certain parts of Cape Town traffic will be absolutely INSANE.
Take for instance my girlfriend who is going to have to get from Woodstock to Sea Point during one of the games. Dude, going through town for her will be nearly impossible. So she will have to take the back route to get home. Shoooo, I hope everyone can get home in time for the match!
The Uruguay vs. France game will commence at 8:30pm. So hopefully everyone will be where they need to be by that time. There will be a super colossal football fever in Cape Town, until very late. Remember when the games end, the parties begin! Take that into account or you may end up in a maelstrom of traffic madness.
If you are concerned about the World Cup traffic, best chat to your bosses and see if you can wangle a deal. Maybe try to come in early, so that you can leave at a better time!
Heck if you have cool bosses maybe they will even give you the day off
