Story of the office colleague(s)

It has been ages since I last posted a blog lord have I missed venting.

Anyway as I was writing about that colleague the other day, I made the move for reconciliation and she wasn’t game, I was a bit upset cos really I wanted to bury the hatchet. But I felt instant release as in I felt so light afterwards what I did not realise was that as a result of her actions , I was also carrying unnecessary luggage with me and now that I have unloaded them I feel so light, no dead weight, and I have moved on.
I leave her to continue to carry the hate and animosity with her in her.

I just don’t get it some times now I am beginning to think that there might be something wrong somewhere with me honestly I do not get it o. My colleagues in the office are really beefing me. Chris Rock says don’t hate the player, hate the game. I know that I am their superior in the office (not their boss) and really what I say in the dept is law but must they palyer hate.

The thing now is that why is it that when I come to work I greet all that I meet in the room but when others come into the office they don’t greet anybody. Then on the day that I decide not to greet any body, every body stops talking to me. They act like as if I have committed the greatest evil on earth. I just don’t get it. Silly as it seems that is what is happening or am I really loosing it pls help

Workplace Bitching The story

I am not one to talk about the work place outside the work place.
But I need to air something that has weighed me down in the office for some time now.

It is the issue of one stupid woman in my office who I have decided to try to get along with for the sake of my own sanity.

She used to work in the company a long time ago. She however left the company for some reasons and is now back. Good for her.

However the problem is that upon her return, obviously things had changed and she found it a bit unsettling. She is from this side of town and therefore could not quite stomach the fact she has to report to younger African (me) and before I know it there is tension in the air.
I had a word with my boss about it and he said that he is sure that I will be able to deal with but alas I could not deal with it very well. She has a very strong personality to counter act her venom, I formed an alliance with another lady in the office and we made the working environment rather uncomfortable for her to the extent that she actually had a verbal warfare with my ally. They were seriously reprimanded.

The thing is that I have just realised what is all this rubbish about. I see part of myself in her and she is trying to do is to mark territory for what? I ask myself. I realise that this is not my father’s office and even if it was it is not by bitching that you make progress. I will make peace with her. I know she feels very threatened by me and what I am doing by responding negatively is allowing her take charge of the situation and control my actions. So today, I will take the road less travelled and build a bridge and not a fence.

I am sure that she will shocked. Lets se how it goes …..i will keep you posted

The going back Story

As the day for going back home draws nearer i get more excited mixed feelings but the thing is that I DEY GO !!!!

As far as i am concerned it is a done deal; every body has one sad story or the other to tell but iroyin ko to afojuba (seeing is believing). It is true that there is no light and there is no water and the roads are bad and the weather is hot and that...... but i miss naija , i miss my house, i miss my mum coming to annoy me early in the morning by asking me what i want them to make for me knowing fully well that i realy dont eat in the mornings. I miss the constant effizi hahahaha. I miss not having to work twice as hard to prove my worth cos in naija we are all the same colour. I miss my junior brother who knows almost all my darkest secrets, He is serving in Abia state at the moment YUCK! forgive me Abia state indigenes but my brother is an ajebutter hahaha any way .

I have been stocking the kitty for some time now at least to cushion the landing upon getting back. Lord knows that it was not easy especially when the boyfie was a constant drain on the pocket please dont laugh , i dont know whether na love or na just stupidity i want to believe that it is the latter.Things are better now than they were before. Do i sound sad . i guess it is just one of those days. And I pray that I get a good job ASAP otherwise you all might witness my return next year Although God Forbid the return to this rat race.

Go I Must

My story on Relocating to Naija

Not much has been happening in my life but a lot has been going on in my head.

Sometimes I say to myself that all this wahala somebody is even going through self is not worth. one can drop down and die the next minute i say to myself what if one does not die soon , one does not want to go hungry.

But the koko is that we shall continue to hustle. very soon it will be four years since i left naija . i cant say that i have done badly but i cant say that it has been excellent either . i have a good job THAT IS NOT GOING TO TURN ME INTO A MILLIONAREss HERE HENCE I long for naija like really badly.

So what i shall do is is throw in the towel an prepare for the journey back home . I have managed to tell the boss that i shall be relocating to naija pretty soon like 5 months time for some time but the plan is to go and sort myself out . I take that as more than ample time to get a replacement that can be trained by my goodself. I pray to the lord that nothing will make me regret the move.

A girl has once again got to do what a girl has got to do.
