Ray of hope

I've just been in an unexpected turn of events moved to a new job role. No increase in salary per se, but it's a senior role and i'm certainly looking forward to it. At least management will be compelled now to buy me a laptop!!! Today i saw a show of bigmanism..... not in a rude or arrogant way though! in fact i was rather impressed. what happened was some lady ran into a randomly parked car and as is typical there was the usual brouhaha with onlookers 'assessing' the situation and being the judge and jury all at the same time. Anyway some big man drove up. Happened to be the boss of the 'hitter'. calmly told the 'hitted' that he was sorry, handed him his card and said please let's have an estimate of the cost and we'll take it from there.... i was tripped. that's the simple logic that many people done follow in these scenarios. People prefer to shout and be abusive and many times leave the matter unresolved!!!!!! Nigeria and it's many brouhahas......... The boys are fine, i've lined up some activities for this thankfully short holiday. Hope we are able to somehow get them all done. My maid has gone. i havent been more glad to see a help leave my house in an 8 month period she managed to increase my BP on a daily basis. No improvement whatsoever except to be speaking silly english up and down the place. When she arrived even Yoruba she barely understood!!!!! Hope i get a good replacement next year. when i have more power i may share some of the trauma she put me through!!!! I'm in dire need of a you know what..... problem is by the time i'm home i'm too tired to even approach mr.... Travails of living and working in Lagos. Let's see what the weekend would be like.... hopefully i won't spend saturday cooking and cleaning mcheeeeewwwww Gotta go, 5'o' clock don reashhhhhh finish ;)
