ranjau paku

what? it’s been called “ranjau paku”.

who? somebody refers to free-men, poor-jobless-hopeless men, etc, who need money but they couldn’t get any. they have a business actually. the “tambal ban” business. the costumer is someone who drive a car/motorcycle along the street and he/she’s got something wrong with the wheel of the vehicle. basically, they want help people whose the vehicle is in trouble. they fix the wheel. but, as they don’t get many customer. they make their own customer.

how? they throw one kilogram nails along the street. on purpose. in order to make the car/motorcycle wheel accidentally hit the nail and voila! those vehicle couldn’t running normal anymore. so, off course the owner of the car/motorcycle will go to the nearest “tambal ban” to fix the wheel. and there they are.

why? because with throwing more nails, there will be more wheel to fixed, and they will get more money.

(source: e-mail blast from somebody) Well, this is jakarta the capital city. great population, but lack of job opportunity. lack of job opportunity, bcoz they don’t get hi education. don’t get hi education, bcoz of their daddy parents don’t have enough money to pay the expensive school fee. they don’t have enough money bcoz they don’t work. and coming back to where we were, they don’t work bcoz there is no job opportunity for them. i believe if there is a job opportunity for them, they can have a real job that won’t give the disadvantage for other people. and for themselves.

Never work just for money or for power. They won’t save your soul or help you sleep at night. (Marian Wright Edelman)
