OFFICE GIST



See my life for outside oh....... a colleague told me I look too young for the position I currently hold in my office..... that I look like a teenager. Abeg, who can recommend fattening room for Sykik. I need to add flesh so I can become “madam” aka   “lolo”.    Also, maybe instead of anti-aging, recommend pro-aging cream to make my face look older. I am getting scared of this supposed “teenage look”.

I noticed that the female restrooms in my office have been turned to prayer rooms....God help you if “piss is catching you” at about 3pm or 6pm.....the rooms are always filled with women “cabashing” and praying.  

There’s a senior male colleague in my office who’s a bully. He’s a big time bully. He has turned his unit members to primary school pupils. They can’t leave there desk without permission, they can’t chat with other colleagues in the communal room because he believes it means they are not busy. Without exaggerating, he uses curse words on his colleagues and no one has deemed it fit to caution him. He uses words such as stupid, silly, idiot e.t.c. The unit members are traumatised but scared of reporting him to a more superior officer because he handles their performance appraisal......no one wants to be badly appraised. The staff turnover in the unit is high.  I tried cautioning him about his curse words in 2011. He was so miffed and wondered what effrontery I had to walk up to him and advice him on his choice of words, he said I lacked respect and called me unprintable names. I was so livid I replied that he must be the female in his marriage because his attitude was unbecoming for a married man..... He stopped talking or acknowledging my greetings since then. Meanwhile, he’s a Christian who never fails to remind everyone he’s Holy Spirit filled. How can someone who keeps malice, claim to be Holy Spirit filled...I am sure he’s filled with something else maybe pounded yam and efo riro. (He’s from Ekiti state)

There’s a female colleague who had her traditional wedding late last year, the guy is based abroad. They dated for barely a year, #LDR things#. The registry wedding hasn’t been done and I asked her when her hubby is coming back and she says he told her, she will see him, whenever he comes back home...as in, he didn’t give her a precise date...he expects his wife to come back home one day and there he will be, sprawled on the sofa or maybe, she hears the door bell, opens and it’s her husband at the door. Which “kain play” is that? How can a wife not know the arrival date of her better half...I can’t live like that oh? The air ticket no get return date ni?

  2. LDR tinz ehn... it is well. As for the bully of an oga, it will take only one person's cry and grief to move that man out of that position. #Abachatinz I'm not praying for him to die sha.

  3. That man, I would have to pray hard and be that brave soul to tell him that he is not allowed to talk to me in such disrespectful manner. If he has an issue or problem talk to me like an intelligent adult.

    Any way, appreciate your young looks. I know the feeling but 10-20 years from now you will appreciate being told you look like a teenager.

  9. For the Holy Spirit filled guy, it is not uncommon that they feel "special" as "God's anointed" and therefore feel they are above reprimand and do not owe the rest of "the heathens" in the world an ounce of respect. Smh cos I do not get it.

    For the married colleague, na so them dey do o. On our side we see men looking for papers or just someone to mooch off of. The unlucky wife or paycheck over here no dey know say her hubby get "real wife" for Naija. If the home wife manages to cross over and brings in good money she will displace the here wife. Otherwise, na she sabi. The one that tires me is the families that know the guy has a wife abroad but will still escort him to seek a "home" wife. I do not get it at all. After all am sure his people go do wine carrying (or took kola, yam, or whatever they take in their place) for your colleague na, even if them no go registry. The court cannot force him back as far as I am concerned; but the family should not support that kind of deceit.

    Gurl, rock your sweet sixteen well, its the way forward.

  15. 3 tips to put on weight

    1) Body massage. Ijaw people are known for fattening body massage
    2) Work out. Not cardio, just weights. Get a good trainer.
    3)Frequent breaks. Just take a break from it all once in a while. Check into a hotel even if the same city and relax.

    When you put on weight you will miss your slim days so enjoy your lepaness whilst it lasts

  17. The same people who tell you you are too young or too skinny will also be the first to mention you have gained weight and need to watch yourself or that stress is showing on your face.
