RANDOM POST

I saw this in a friend's bb status and asked for his permission to share it. *Kunle wrote: "Imagine KAI stopped moto for me to cross the road at Ojota, only to arrest me at the other side of the road for not using the pedestrian bridge". I had a good laugh when I read it. Personally, I don't cross the express road directly underneath a pedestrian bridge. I'm not a model citizen, far from it. My obeying this rule is borne more out of the fear of being hit by one of the crazy drivers in a hurry to get to God knows where. I prefer to just jejeli and most times tiredly climb the bridge to get to the other side. I guess my friend was in a hurry and when the KAI official stopped the cars for him to cross, he forgot that he was disobeying a law. The question I asked myself was this: Why would an official assist a citizen in breaking a law? Abi is that a new tactic to catch the ones who err and collect money from them. On further enquiry, *Kunle told me that after the KAI official collected money from him, he said he (Kunle) was a complete gentleman and asked for his number. Kunle was just fuming. I had such a good laugh. Our naija officials sha :-D.

MTN can be crappy in their services. I use their BIS services and they are just inefficient at serving their customers. If I remember correctly, I used to receive a text message two days prior to my BIS expiration date informing me that I would need to renew my subscription to avoid disruption. They no longer send the pre message. One would be busy enjoying their services and then just receive a text message saying that your BIS has expired bla bla bla. What kind of abrupt termination is that na ehn? I wondered to myself whether they were cutting cost. Is it not the same money spent in sending the expiration text that could have been spent in sending the prior to expiration text. Mschewwwwww. Another new "innovation" on their part is to send you an alert after each call you make informing you of how much you spent on the call and how much credit  you have left. I'm not interested in that jorr. I can always check my balance if I want to know how much I have left. The alert they are supposed to send, they won't send. It's the unnecessary one they will send. *smh at them.

There's something my siblings do that annoy me. It has to do with doors: room doors, door of the fridge etc. It's become a rather annoying habit of them to just bang the door instead of holding the knob and gently closing it. I just don't get it ehnn biko nu. I always tell them that the carpenters that built the doors had a reason for putting the knob. It's not there to add to the overall beauty of the door, but it's to be held and used to gently close the door. I have told them these severally and atimes I wonder if it's just me been a nagging sister. But the sound of the doors banging gives me headache. If you happen to visit, you are most likely going to hear me telling either of them to close the doors gently :-)

I often tell people that it is not by force to update your status or post a comment on facebook. I always cringe when I see comments with grammatical errors in it. I'm not perfect in English language and so I have learnt to proof read before I post anything. I also appreciate it when my friends correct me. A friend sent me the pictures below for laughs. I apologize if you know the people involved. I don't mean to spite anyone.



   
                 
I don't understand the last lady that said "Amen & same 2 me". Is it that she was in a hurry to comment and didn't read what the guy wrote. *very surprised look

Enjoy the rest of the week folks.

Love and Hugs.

    About the facebook updates, truth is more people than we realise speak bad english in this country. I studied English in the university and had classmates who couldn't construct a sentence properly in English and we all kuku graduated. needless to say i didnt get a 1st class degree even though i speak my own English impeccably and with fone sef *bats eyes*

    So now back to the bad English speakers, imagine my shock when my dry cleaner gave me my receipt for cleaning 3 "busies". i was puzzled, na purse i give them make them clean oh!!!

    Hmmm....
