Yesterday after work, I stopped by the shopping complex in my estate, to pick up some stuff.
Now, I am not usually a stupid person, but yesterday, I did the exact opposite of what I'd normally do. I redeemed myself in the end sha. Ok, here goes:
I come out of a cab, I'm walking into the complex, when all of a sudden, someone says:
Him: Excuse me
[I turn, cuz the voice sounds familiar]
Me: Yeah?
[At this point, I can see his face, and he looks old, like my uncle's age mate, so from the way he called, I assume he's my uncle's friend]
Him: I'm Larry....Lawrence
[At this point, alarm bells go off in my head, but he has already taken my hand, and like a zombie, i stand, transfixed, staring at him. Note that he luks very ugly, facially and body-wise]
Me: Ok, and??
Larry: I work in ......[1 big place in government sha], are you a corper?
Me: [I shake my head, suddenly mute]
Larry: So where do you work?
Me: .......[1 construction company sha]
Larry: Ok, let me get ur number [gives me his phone, which i must add, looks way less sophisticated than mine-and he's supposed to be a 'big man'.infact, the phone is the 3310 of today]...are you coming out soon?
Me: [already typing 080]no
Larry: Ok, still give me ur number, I'll wait for u in my car, so we can talk
[At this point, I start coming out of my trance, slowly, but surely]
Me: No, don't wait for me [giving him back the phone without my number], i dont give my number to strangers.
Larry: Abeg jo, shey you've already collected the phone, just put ur number
Me: No....I'll drop this phone on the floor if u dont collect it
Larry: You're going to lose me oh
Me: And so? who d hell do u thnk u are?
Larry: You'll lose my d**k
[ I'm beginnin to think he's drunk, so i try to see if i can perceive alcohol on his breath, and....i cant]
Me: Are you out of your mind?
Larry [like a lunatic]: You're going to lose my d**k
[Now, that's enough to bring me out of my trance, and this has me wishing i understood my language well enough to rain abuses and curses on d bastard]
Me: [I give him a very hot slap....yeah, i know its hot, cuz I have a reputation for having painful hands, I throw his phone far away, hoping it falls into the gutter, and I walk away] U must be very stupid.
I walk into the complex, guys & chics alike are hailing me, I'm too shocked at the fact that there are human beings like Larry on earth, who can misyarn terribly without being drunk.
Turns out the place I wanted to pick my stuff from is closed. Damn!!
Plus, it starts drizzling, but as I go home, I feel like the rain is washing off all the smelly nonsense from that bastard. And I feel very happy that i slapped him, cuz I'd have been very ashamed of myself if I didnt.
See y'all soon.

About me [not rily]

I know this is the wrongest thing to be doing right now, but I cant help myself. I'm at work alryt, but I'm not doing anything useful, and i'm about to fall asleep on my desk, which i'l never allow happen, not in a thousand years.

anyway, i think i should introduce myself already. well, here goes:

I'm a girl under 21 years, i'm in college, studying something along engineering lines [and engineers shldnt have time for stuff like this, right? right.]

Well, as I was saying, I'm in college, but right now I'm on IT [Industrial Training is something you do when you get to ur 4th year, as an engineer-to-be. it usually lasts 6 months, during wat is supposed to be ur 2nd semester].

I'm on IT and I work in this company, where i have a very crazy boss. The guy is incredible, u think u'r perfectionistic? u havnt met my boss. I could go on and on about him, but I think i'l leave that for another day.

So, i'v been working here for the past 3 months, I havnt learnt jack, cuz they put me in the wrong department, despite all my protests [and trust me, there's nuthin worse than working a job u hate, with a paycheck wey no join at all.] and i'm tired already....i went weeping to my folks, who promised to get me another place [yeah, i'm still their little girl, and before you judge me, i actually tried to get another place by myself, but it didnt work, so i had to fall back on the good old folks' connections...u know how it is in Naija]

Anyway, I'm still waiting for the connexn thingy to click, should take less than a week, hopefully, and [drumroll,please] i'l be outta here, for good. But till then, I'm sitting at my desk, trying to make the best of a bad situation....but there's only so much I can do, abi?

I'm rily gonna miss all my friends here when i leave sha...

Ok, I know I hvnt said much about myself, but I eventually will, I promise. Ciao!!!!
