What a soccer slam weekend!

I didnt drive to work last week friday so i decided to join the BRT bus on my way home to beat the heavy traffic on ikorodu road. I waited and waited for a bus that had sitting space to no avail so i had to make do with 'standing' if i was to get home early enough. I got into one eventually. There were quite a number of people standing that there was barely space to move around so i stood close to the entrance door. I was wearing my Man U jersey. After about 2mins of my boarding the bus (i was thinking for how long i was going to stand and hoping that people will drop off soon so i can get a seat), the conductor beckoned on me to come and have his seat! I was dumbfounded. People standing before i got in were all there and he asked ME to come take his seat. It turned out he was a Man U fan and as i sat down he said 'United for Life'.You can bet i responded with all the gusto i could muster.

Come see bad belle people! Them begin fire the conductor say im be correct 'ojoro' man. Say make Man U fans no worry, say Arsenal go give them yawa on sunday. The argurement began. Me i no just send them, as long as nobody ask me to stand up. that one concern them. I throway face, leave conductor to im fate with the other club fans.(wetin i wan begin talk with all those strong face guys?)

A Man U jersey got me a seat when i was supposed to stand? I loved Man United more. Then came Sunday 28th August. Man U met Arsenal.

I no go talk pass like that.

Hope you guys had a swell weekend. (thank God 'IT' happened at the tail end of the weekend so at least gunners wouldnt lose too much weekend sleep)

Have a lovely week ahead and be good!

How much calls/caring is too much?

Your boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife calling on you, from time to time, during the day to check up on you could be so romantic and caring. It could make co workers green with envy and shower one with praises of having a very romantic and caring other half

But i have been with friends who IMMEDIATELY after getting off the fone with their loved ones (who has probably called to find out how their days are going, if they have eaten, when they will be going home stuff like that) say things like 'ah, this is getting choking abeg. Cant he/she give me small breathing space?'. And i wonder.

No calls - wahala. Calls 'too much' - wahala. Na wetin?

Can there be anything like 'too much care'? I have heard that too much of everything isnt good but then can caring be too much?

I guess their has to be some balance but then balance is relative. What is balance for me could be extreme to another.

How does one, therefore know when not to be 'care -choking' the other?

Real men dont hit women!

Back then in the uni, i had this pretty friend who was dating this cute guy. Well, there was some form of dating in between the fighting (or beating up) times. The guy beat the girl up at every slight excuse. They are walking on the road and she stops to say hi to a guy(be it a classmate, church mate or village mate) - Punches; He comes to look for her and she isnt home - more punches; She argues with him over anything - much more punches. He beat her frequently and heavily.
I have ALWAYS being an ANTI-woman beating person. I dont like it in any form however tiny so i kept on talking to the girl to see if she will see some form of reason and dump the woman beater. To no avail. i even got some vibe from her that looked like she actually liked it! She was always saying, "he loves me and its cos he loves me too much that he acts that way'! I reviewd my relationship with her after that cos i felt it wasnt a healthy relationship to keep. How on earth does one show love by pounding and inflicting pain on another person?????
Beats the hell outta me!
In my oppinion, any man that beats a woman isnt man enuf and will cower and run into hiding when confronted by a fellow man.
If u can beat up the person u claim to love, i hate to see what u'll do to someone u dont really like.
It just doesnt make sense to me.
Does it make sense to u?

Either a virgin or a prostitute, no grey areas?

I was listening to one radio station last friday on my way home from work. The topic was girls who sleep with men for money AKA prostitutes. The presenter was taking about a certain girl who sent in a message saying she was dying from a deadly indescribable ailment that she probably got from one of the men she has been sleeping with. She was, allegedly, trying to sensitize the public to beware of prostitution as it was a dangerous thing. She was saying that girls that sleep around for money expose themselves, not only to deadly STDs but also to men of the occult world. On and on she went. She said she was a very rich girl with 3 cars, 2 houses in Lagos and 12 million naira in her bank account but that all those couldnt help her now as she was on the verge of death.

Well, people started calling into the show saying all sorts. Some said she was just so da*m unlucky, some said she should donate her wealth to the less priviledge b4 dying, other said she should donate her wealth to them!

One call, however caught my attention 100%. A man called from the UK saying that in his oppinion, she hasnt done anything wrong at all. According to him, it was better to have sex and get wealth to show for it rather than just have sex with some guy u call your boyfriend and have nothing but 'love' to show for it. He went further to say that "there really wasnt any point in not collecting money for sex cos any woman who isnt a virgin and isnt married but is having sex is a prostitute! So she could as well get money in the process"

Can u just imagine the impudence! No grey areas??? What happened to 'being in love and sharing' with someone. What happened to experiencing love? So ladies have to either collect money for sex or NOT have sex at all???? That guy's mind is surely twisted. Silly

 I am ecstatic that it is friday. This week crawled all through, was just too slow.

 Anyway, little gist.

Top Celebrities magazine of Tuesday 16th August 2011 had this headline as part of his front news "STEPHENIE OKEREKE'S MARRIAGE PLANS CRUMBLE - Fiance's wife and child surface"

The story goes-

As marriage plans of nollywood diva, Mercy Johnson and her fiance Odi Okojie get messier everyday and both have been struggling to keep it on track, stories filtering into the street suggest that another top actress, Stephenie Okereke is also struggling to make her engagement to boyfriend Linus Idahosa become legal.


On and on it went, saying in no hidden terms that the fiance, Linus, also has a case of an undivorced wife and baby in America and that the woman has vowed not to let him go

Everyday, new 'gbege'
What is it with these married guys and wanting to get married without first offloading all their baggages???

Anyway, my own be say TGIF!!!!

See ya and happy weekend!

Customer Service jobs. Not easy at all ooo (part 1)

I used to think that customer service was a fun career path. You know, talking to clients, getting to know their issues, passing these issues to people that have the technical know how to solve them and then pass them back to client. Piece of cake! yeah right!! i was sooooo wrong! customer service jobs is harder than rocket science! yes ooo. The people worse hit are customer care agents for telecoms companies in Nigeria. Ol boy! some people just look around them, not seeing anyone to get on their nerves, they pick up their fones and dial 180 (for mtn), 200 (etisalat) etc and the sorry for the agent on the other end of the line. Some people are actually too dumb to own a fone! given the kind of questions they ask the agents and the kind of complains they call about.

I got this piece from somewhere and believe it or not, it actually happened. I wish i were a lawyer, i would have taken up this particular agent's case and milked millions of dollars from that company. cos really, who wouldnt loose it in that particular situation??

Read on:

Actual dialogue of a former WordPerfect Customer Support employee.
(Now I know why they record these conversations!):

Operator:         'Ridge Hall, computer assistance; may I help you?'
Caller:              'Yes, well, I'm having trouble with WordPerfect ....'
Operator:         'What sort of trouble?'
Caller:              'Well, I was just typing along, and all of a sudden the words went away.'
Operator:         'Went away?'
Caller:              'They disappeared'
Operator:         'Hmm. So what does your screen look like now?'
Caller:              'Nothing.'
Operator:         'Nothing??'
Caller:              'It's blank; it won't accept anything when I type.'
Operator:         'Are you still in WordPerfect, or did you get out?'
Caller:              'How do I tell?'
Operator:        'Can you see the 'C: prompt' on the screen?'
Caller:              'What's a sea-prompt?'
Operator:         'Never mind, can you move your cursor around the screen?'
Caller:              'There isn't any cursor; I told you, it won't accept anything I type..'
Operator:         'Does your monitor have a power indicator?'
Caller:              'What's a monitor?'
Operator:         'It's the thing with the screen on it that looks like a TV.
                         Does it have a little light that tells you when it's on?'
Caller:               'I don't know.'
Operator:          'Well, then look on the back of the monitor and find where
                         the power cord goes into it. Can you see that??'
Caller:              'Yes, I think so.'
Opera tor:         'Great. Follow the cord to the plug, and tell me if it's
                         plugged into the wall..
Caller:              'Yes, it is.'
Operator:         'When you were behind the monitor, did you notice that
                         there were two cables plugged into the back of it, not just one? '
Caller:               'No.'
Operator:          'Well, there are. I need you to look back there again and
                          find the other cable.'
Caller:               'Okay, here it is.'
Operator:          'Follow it for me, and tell me if it's plugged securely into
                          the back of your computer..'
Caller:               'I can't reach.'
Operator:          'OK. Well, can you see if it is?'
Caller:               'No..'
Operator:          'Even if you maybe put your knee on something and lean way over?'
Caller:               'Well, it's not because I don't have the right angle -- it's because it's dark.'
Operator:          'Dark?'
Caller:               'Yes - the office light is off, and the only light I have is
                          coming in from the window.'
Operator:          'Well, turn on the office light then.'
Caller:               'I can't.'
Operator:          'No? Why not?'
Caller:              'Because there's a power failure.'
Operator:           'A power .... A power failure? Aha. Okay, we've got it
                           licked now. Do you still have the boxes and manuals and
                           packing stuff that your computer came in?'
Caller:                'Well, yes, I keep them in the closet..'
Operator:           'Good. Go get them, and unplug your system and pack it
                           up just like it was when you got it. Then take it back to
                           the store you bought it from.'
Caller:                'Really? Is it that bad?'
Operator:           'Yes, I'm afraid it is.'
Caller:                'Well, all right then, I suppose. What do I tell them?'
Operator:           'Tell them you're too damned stupid to own a computer!'

 Spot on! *thumbs up to operator*

*singing* Too much money, Problem is how to spend it..........

The Benjamins!
Ibo's say 'when u are big,u are big!'

An Arab's royal son goes to Germany to study.
A month later, he sends a letter to his dad saying: " Berlin is wonderful. The people are nice and I really like it here, but I'm a bit ashamed to arrive school in my Mercedes SLR McLaren, when all my teachers travel by train."
Sometime later he gets a letter from his dad with a hundred million dollar cheque saying:
"Stop embarrassing us, go and buy yourself a train too!"

Na beans?

Guys and Babes-No be today something!

Yeah, some people actually feel this way.
Issues between guys and babes are as old as the world itself. The drama, the fun, the ups, the downs, the whole nine yards. Some guys see girls as territories to conquer. They, like Napoleon and Julius Ceaser, grade themselves on how many 'territories' they have gone into and conquered. The more girls they go out with and run away from, the better they feel (do they really feel better? Just asking). They leave heartbreaks and cursing babes in their trails. Such guys end up marrying, at 40 something, a little girl of 18 or 20 and do they stop? Most dont. I have heard 2 guys argue over how many babes they have slept with. as in, they were arguing who had slept with more! Is there a prize to be won with how many girls you sleep with in your lifetime? Maybe there is, I wonder.
IMO, guys in this category are guys with the lowest self-esteems any human can possibly have. and the only way they can make their miserable selves feel good is by hurting someone else. Poor them
I am sure you know one or two people like this

Now, wetin Peter,one half or Psquare, dey feel like for here??? He must really be feeling very hot and fine with his 10 pack. mscheww (now, this is what can be termed 'bad belle'. lol)


I once heard a case of a guy (while i was in the uni) who was so in love with his girlfriend, so in love that he tattooed her name on his lap. No nned to tell you that after some years the girl wanted out of the relationship and the boy was faced with the dilemma of what to do with the tattoo as it was the parmenent kind. the person telling me the story then was the guy's friend who was also confronted with the task of finding a solution. I gave them my heart felt solution - tell the guy to cut flesh from his ass to cover the tattoo!!!
Some get it in the weirdest of places - close to the nipple, at the nape of the neck, on their ass cheek,in between the thumb and the fore finger etc
What do u think of tattoos? For me, i think they are highly unneccesary. come to think of it, does it make one more beautiful? IMO it doesnt! So why do people have it done? Why do they have to go great lenghts,endure great pain to get something that doesnt add anything to their beauty??? Beats the hell outta me!
Well could be a statement for those that understand the language cos, me ooo, i dont understand that language

Man kills disabled son.

 Wonders, they say, will never cease!!!
Authorities say a Louisiana man is accused of decapitating his disabled 7-year-old son and leaving the boy's head near the street. Thibodaux (TIB'-uh-doh) Police Chief Scott Silverii (sil-VER'-ee) says 30-year-old Jeremiah Lee Wright has confessed to killing Jori Lirette (lih-RET'). Wright was booked with first-degree murder and being held Monday in lieu of $5 million bond.
Silverii says the motive is unclear, though Wright told police he was tired of taking care of the boy, who had heart problems and needed a feeding tube.
The police chief says the child's mother, Jesslyn Lirette, came home Sunday to find the house blocked with police tape. He says officers who told her of the killing were in tears when they left her.
Police spokesman Ricky Ross says he does not believe Wright has an attorney.

Social networking sites and their palaver!

Since the advent of the social networking sites - facebook,twitter,flicker,myspace etc, our lives have changed greatly. we meet new friends and mingle easily. our friends and aquitances base have greatly expanded. we have been having so much fun. Guys no longer go through the pains of 'chyking' babes anylonger. he just locates her on FB and everything kicks off from there. Everything has gone digital. But like all things, there have also been downsides. People have gotten heartbroken, relationships have gone down the drain, young women have been stalked and sometimes raped - the culprit - SOCIAL NETWORKS.
Now, a lot of things abound on these sites that are always bones of contention. from compliments paid a person to relationship status to status updates. I know a guy that beats his girlfriend each time anyone pay her picture a compliment or comments on her status and says something like 'dear' in the process. she don enter 'one chance' be that! he will pound her black and blue saying she is obviously sleeping with the person. Relationship status nko? that na another yawa. leave it as 'single' and d guy that sees himself as 'the boyfriend' is mad. Put 'in a relationship' without putting who u are in a relationship with, another yawa. Hmm, some go as far as asking the other party in the relationship to close his/her account. Issues,Issues,Issues. yet we remain addicted. with all its palaver, people still sign in in droves
I guess social networks have come to stay and no amount of ups and downs can take them away.
What downside of social networking sites have u experienced???

All that room?

I went to lekki over the weekend to visit a friend of mine whose wife just put to bed. I have been going to the area but i havent really paid attention to the kind of houses and the resources put in to make such houses materialize. last weekend, i paid attention. I was dumbfounded! People build living homes as if they are building church cathedrals! its ammazing. i saw some houses and thought to myself. 'shouldnt it be some sort of sin to build this kind of houses?' (no bad belle intended o) but really, how much room does one really need??? especially when u are not a traditional ruler with 7 wives and 40 children! I saw houses that looked like dreams, i saw houses that looked like castles, i saw houses that looked liked they jumped out of Alice in Wonderland. Finally, i said to myself, 'Some people just have too much money than they know what to do with'. Maybe i should visit that place more often, to inspire myself, what do u think?

How are u REALLY?

"How are u"? "Fine ooo, i dey". AUTOMATIC! we are always 'fine' even when we are not. We are fine when we are sad, feeling low, heavy hearted. we are FINE. why dont we just say how we are feeling excatly? Thing is Does the person that asked really want to know? Maybe we should answer "how are u" with "do u really want to know?"
Just imagine passing a colleague on the stairs in the office early in the morning and asking him "ol boy, how u dey, how was ur weekend?" and he goes "horrible weekend. My mother in law came around and made me drive her to every relative's house. My dry cleaner stood me up sunday evening and i didnt have a clean shirt to use this morning, i had to dig up an old one on a monday morning. I am so broke and my mother in law will be going back tommorrow. i am just mad at everyone and everything. i need a new job as this one isnt paying my bills. etc" And una still stand for the staircase o! What will u do? Did u really ask him how his weekend was cos u wanted to REALLY know or because that has become a form of greeting?
Maybe we should be truthful and just stick to the "good mornings" and leave the "how are u/how was ur weekend' to when we are in the mood to know, dont u think?

Blue Day

Its the 1st of August. God has brought us safetly to the 2nd month of the 2nd half of the year. Hmm, its been a long ride down the year. we have had challenges,hardships,laughs,celebrations the whole nine yards.
I woke up this morning in high spirits. I dressed good to match my spirits ( i know i look good no matter what u think *tongue out*) and breezed into the office to have a fun day only for bad belle people to throw shit at my day!
Now my mood is foul,i feel low and gloom. But i gat to be better than this. Pick myself up and get out of this! Afterall, noone should make him/her self master of my emotions and my day. i shouldnt give anyone the right to dictate how my day goes dont u think?
I am who i am and no one can make me lower or smaller. I am on a journey to my promised land and this is just the desert to cross. it will be 40days as it should be.
Am speaking in parables? yeah, thats how my spirit led me
Anyway, hope ur day is good and smooth sailing. Wishing you the best the day has to offer ok?
Be good. Ciao!
