Sticking to South Africa today, I thought I would waffle a bit about the curious way in which Saffer’s interpret aspects of time. 

According to my boss, “now-now” means right away and “just-now” means sometime soon but not right away. According to my colleagues it is the other way around. 

I found this super little clock in an office  in Johannesburg and it didn’t do much to help me crack this code.

Seems to me that South Africans have a rather complicated relationship with the word “now”.
