ONE of the best books I’ve ever read is Susan Cain’s Quiet. It’s about how introverts show up in an extroverted world and I found the insights invaluable – I’d recommend all introverts read it. The differences between introverts and extroverts in the world of work have become ever more apparent this year and it’s been an eye-opener to see how people who draw energy from others cope with the effects of remote working. And as a second wave of Covid-19 infections looms, many offices will continue having staff work from home with plenty returning only next year – if ever. Which means people who are working remotely need to find ways to connect and tackle the issue of isolation. And what a big issue it is. The need to bond with others…

I LOVE YOU THIS MUCH! I RECENTLY landed up in hospital, and as I’m a coffee addict I was taking a bit of strain. In the ward they served coffee only at 5am and 6pm. Desperate for my fix I thought I’d try my hand at charming the lady who brought my lunch. So I decided to play a game with her that I play with my grandchildren. “How much do you love me?” I asked her. She opened her arms wide and said, “This much.” I told her that’s not how this game works. It must be something such as, “I love you more than all the grass in the world,” or “I love you more than all the stars in the sky.” Out she went and consulted her colleagues. I could…

meghan’s metamorphosis

I read with interest the latest article about “Me-Me-Me Meghan” (YOU, 22 October) and what struck me most was the look on Prince Harry’s face in each and every photo he appeared in. He looks absolutely bored to tears if not actually downright miserable. So utterly unlike the mischievous Harry we all grew so fond of. So dear Meghan has what she wants - being back in the limelight - but at what cost to the man she forced to cut ties with his family and all that was familiar and loved? Shame on you, Meghan. JANET, CAPE TOWN Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, got exactly what she wanted after she reeled Harry in. After all the fuss on her arrival, being granted UK residency at the drop of a hat while other ordinary…

in brief

As the daily death toll on our roads continues, so does our government’s indifference to human suffering and its silence in the face of all appeals to implement basic road-safety measures that would halve road carnage overnight. RICHARD BENSON, SMS To Debbie from Durban (YOU Say, 22 October): my husband died on 28 August. He was my life. We knew it was coming. All through the many years he taught me to be strong. He was quite a bit older than me. Yes, it was still a shock when it happened but I had to do all the things you said you had to. I’m so pleased you’ve coped so well and yes, I have also. We can do it. I’ve started sorting out the house, put it up for sale and…

‘he’s not the guy you see on tv’

TO MILLIONS of South Africans, he was the friendly face on breakfast TV, the guy with the infectious grin and boyish charm on adverts for an insurance giant. Katlego Maboe seemed to have a bright future ahead of him. He was widely regarded as one of the best TV presenters in the business and has two SA Film and Television awards under his belt to prove it. But how things have changed. The 33-year-old has now been suspended from Expresso, the SABC3 morning show where he was a presenter, and OUTsurance has removed all ads in which he features. Since an explosive video filmed by his ex, Monique Muller (30), appeared online Katlego has become one of the most spoken-about celebrities in the land – for all the wrong reasons. South Africans were stunned…
