I sit down and he's like "you need to switch computers that one is for our stubborn customers..." i'm like ok, wharreva, is this one faster? he says yes. So I sit and log on and wait and wait and wait for like 10min for a page to open. At this point i'm exasperated and i'm like "is this the one you say is fast?" dude acts all stupid and says yes why? "Umm, i've been waiting for 10min for ONE page to load".....he now looks at me in the most annoying annoying way with that stupid dumb accent people try to return at me when I speak, he says "oh wow, you've been looking for a page? waiting for a page? that's something, looking for a page..." He then gets up to move unwantedly very very close to me and starts pressing F8 on the key pad. I just log out, grab my bag, get up and leave.

I mean what the F? can u fix the dumb computer u idiot dirty, local, playboy wannabe...jeez!

Not the throw up type, huh? I distinctly remember an episode, circa November 2004, when a certain someone drank too much and was puking into another someone's beast of a car.....

Love ya girl!


HA HA HA....just sat and read your whole blog after reading this one.very interesting.and i feel you on the "local wanna be playboys"!!
i remember last year when i was in naija for one thing or the other and i had to pop into a cafe.and for some reason,by default,a little bit of "phonetics" just slips outta my gob while im asking the cyber cafe guy about getting a computer and the rates etc.
like film trick o..this guy that just about 2 seconds b4 was barely stringing a coherent sentence together in english...STARTS TO BLOW PHONETICS FOR ME.
it was soooo bad,i had to ask him "are you for real"??
and can you imagine he had no clue what i was talking about and he still said in his irritating phonetics "Hoh yezz..forrrr rilll,hi ham tellin yuuu""
that was it..i just burst out laughing...
and dont get me started on when i finally sat behind a computer and he came every HALF SECOND to check if i was having any problems.(more like coming to look down my beloved boobies in my low cut vest) .im like DUDE JUST EFF OFF MEN..
and someone needs to tell him that deodorants dont bite.
i LOVE your blog..

Hey babe, be kind now, haba! Guys cant help doing what they know how to do best, PESTER. It can be annoying I know, but try the other side of the coin, with absolutely NO guy trying to hit on you. I never want to wake up for that day!
I have my share, one of them is a guard who guards the house across mine. He gives me a "watsup babe?" every morning. Imajine dat! And on top of it, he asked me one day if I had plans of returning to Liberia. I was confused till he added; "because of de way wey you dey spek inglis" Need I say more?
Sorry about your dad.
Lets make some money soon!
