I work with one of the leading banks in Nigeria. Most of the ladies in my office (head office) are on another forming level, the “forming” no get part 2.
However, the bathroom (restroom) in the building is a funny place. It is a very large room and very clean and well kept. The cleaners eat there sef…me casin’t fit oh. …. In the mornings, it’s a competition of the “who can apply the best make-up”. It’s so bad that someone like me don’t dare go to the rest room before 11am, reasons because I don’t do make-up and I feel intimidated when I see all colours of the rainbow in display and also there’s no space for movement.
Now, in the afternoons, it’s another ball game entirely. This is the time when you can hear different telephone conversations
Colleague on the phone (crying): Mummy, help me talk to him. He should please be careful so he doesn’t come home with sexual disease. He’s too randy, even the house help isn’t spared
Female Colleague on the phone (trying so hard not to shout): Emeka, send money home, even if it is N20,000 so we can buy drinking water…what is it….yesterday I was at Shoprite (a shopping mall in Lekki, Lagos) to buy groceries and other household items, why are you like this…no money…yet you are flying business class…why can’t you fly economy….when was the last time you bought anything for the house.
The person on the other end says something….
Female Colleague on the phone: It’s a lie; I am tired of bearing the expenses….you could have taken a bus, why are you flying when there’s no money… You are the man in this house. Why am I the bread winner…….even if it is N10,000, Emeka bring money home, I say bring money home.
Abeg, this is where my “wee-wee” finish and I had to leave the restroom before my “amebo” get me into trouble.
Oh I almost forgot.
There was another lady who was praying and speaking in tongues in another toilet closet
Female Colleague: Holy Ghost, Father, rakakakasisisitetetesisisi, yes, yes, the promotion is mine. I decree your word; this December will not pass me by in Jesus Name………
