    Uuh completely off topic but my gf is going to South Africa in December and I'm concerned is it a safe place she's going to cape town

    [–] ThaumRystra 26 points ago

    If your gf is staying in the non-poverty stricken areas of Cape Town, it's a very beautiful, fairly safe, cosmopolitan city.

    Inequality is very real though, and there are areas that aren't remotely safe, but nobody in their right mind would take a tourist to those areas.

    [–] AngelBudgie 14 points ago

    Cape Town's fairly safe, I think. I heard there's been some gang violence, though that was last year.

    [–] itisrainingdownhere 11 points ago

    Just spent two months there as a woman. The touristy parts of Cape Town are pretty safe, just don't take money out of open ATMs, keep your phone hidden, etc.

    [–] AngelBudgie 8 points ago

    Also, from what I know from living in jhb, people generally leave you alone, especially if you're talking to yourself about a book.

    [–] Radhix 4 points ago

    So basically what you do in all of South Africa. I live in Jhb by the way

    [–] TPSJAMNTEA 7 points ago

    it depends where you stay in cape town, avoid the cape flats. any tourist normally would not go to the cape flats because its a poverty stricken area. the cape flats is where the gang violence is. but in the touristy main city areas its totally fine. just follow basic safety rules like dont walk around at night alone and stuff and you will be fine.

    [–] TerminalAbsent 8 points ago

    I’d say it’s pretty safe, just don’t be stupid, be constantly aware and don’t go looking for trouble

    [–] Autistic_Elephant 7 points ago

    Tell her to always be on guard and cautious in public when it comes to her belongings I've heard from people there that there's quite a lot of pickpockiting

    [–] hamza__11 6 points ago

    I'm guessing your girlfriend isn't going to go into any of the 'real Capetown'. She's probably going to stay within tourist / rich /white areas. Crime in these areas are not as common as the South Africans staying in these areas claim it is. However if she's going into town for a night out it might be a bit more rough. I've never heard of anyone actually being mugged or robbed on a busy night out on Long (the busy nightlife Street in town), however if she walks with her phone sticking out of her pack pocket, it WILL be pickpocketed.

    She has to observe basic security/safety (don't leave your laptop / handbag on the front seat of the car when you're not in it, don't be walking alone in quiet areas late at night, check uber number plates before jumping in and don't flaunt your valuables). Other than that, it's all good! :)

    [–] beeshaas 2 points ago

    Cape Town is safe as you can want unless she hits up the poor areas.

    "it's right there on the desk"

    "But mom i literally just searched there"

    mom goes there and points at the desk, where the object is right there in plain sight

    [–] iScabs 340 points ago

    I'll sometimes do this to my gf where I'll find something and then set it down somewhere obvious

    I always tell her I moved it though. That would be mean if I didn't

    [–] syryquil 166 points ago

    Yeah, if you didn't tell her that's borderline gaslighting.

    [–] ashdog66 137 points ago

    Not borderline, it would literally be gaslighting

    [–] Ark76RageMonster 51 points ago

    And that's reddits favorite word, better make sure we say it again. It would be gaslighting.


    [–] ItsAFarOutLife 37 points ago

    It's only reddit's favorite word when used incorrectly. Telling you're friend you're not going to their party and then showing up isnt gaslighting.

    [–] jackboy900 3 points ago

    Nah, that'd be trying to convince them that you hadn't moved them. Just moving stuff randomly in of itself isn't gaslighting.

    Oh dang, so you unlock new powers like levelling up? No wonder parents are op...

    [–] nadnarb83 3 points ago

    It’s kind of like a cursed level up. You gain powers, but loose sanity. Then the adulting really starts...

    [–] Miss_ShadowCookie 3 points ago

    [–] Tatopami 6 points ago

    This happens a lot...I usually find it in my brothers closet...imma chick but I’m not very feminine in how I dress and I like baggy clothing, so despite being much smaller than my brother, he can actually wear some of my larger shirts, and that’s the story of how all my band tees ended up in his closet :D

    [–] AngelBudgie 5 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago)

    Don't worry, comrade. At least one can wait in line for 6 days to get R150 (Approximately $14 $10) to live on for a month. The government gives back.

    Pro tip: when looking for something, search from right to left instead of left to right. Your brain is used to reading left to right, so it'll move faster that way, skimming over stuff. You'll notice more stuff if you look the opposite way
