This is what happens when your mind is conditioned to something. South Africa is legendary for stealing mobile devices but expecting a president to taste that experience may be another level. So, when the president of the southern African nation, Cyril Ramaphosa, could not locate his device, the first thought was this – they had “stolen” it. Of course, nothing was stolen as the device was later reunited with the president.
But it tells you something: our minds could default to things even though that state may not be evidently possible. I will not expect a criminal to break police, state security, etc just for a president’s iPad. Yet, this tells everyone that even a president is just like us: for all the precious things from the state, only an iPad could rattle him on a live press podium.
