This is the kind of job I want - I think I can then say that I am overpaid and underworked.

Ok wait, am I mathing badly?

The article claims mr. Bula makes "nearly R1m" per year. THEN says he gets "R36000" a month. Allow me to calculate here for a sec:

R36000 * 12months = R432000

That is a naaice salary for doing nothing, but it's half of their claimed "R936000"....

The article says that R936,000.00 is what Bula “earned” for two years’ idleness.  At R36,000.00 per month, that’s exactly 26 months’ salary, i.e. two years and two months, so the figures do gee out.

None of us made it, alas. Thanks to all of those who voted for us though!
