My name is SIMPLE
Rory Chambers, owner of this yellow band maxi, gave me answers that reflected his vehicle's name.
Happy Hippy: Why did you name it Simple?
RC: Because that is how I live my life ... simple. That is how I want to be ... simple.
HH: Simple answer!
RC: That's right.
HH: Now one more thing ... why do you put that name there? A lot of the maxi drivers are saying it's because of crime and you could easily say, well, I was in Simple or I was in Bless.
RC: Most people, especially older folks, they normally travel with a maxi that has a name. So in case of anything they will just remember what vehicle they were in. It's easier to remember than a license plate number or a driver, because drivers tend to change in maxis.
HH: Right ... but for you personally, do you also feel that that is a message you want to project to everybody on the street as you drive through? You're telling them: be simple?
RC: Be simple. Be simple and don't try to be something that you're not. Be yourself.
HH: Yeah, 'cause that's how I see it when I look at the names ... which is why I'm doing this. I want to find out if the same reason I see is what the maxis saw.
RC: That's right. So then that means my message is getting through.
HH: Yeah, it is, it is. Okay - keep it up.
RC: Okay thanks. Bye.
