The last post was about some mischievous act I was involved in with my roommate back in school. One of my friends, who was our neighbour back then testified to how mischievous we really were and gave an instance where a guy came knocking frantically to no avail though we were in.
I wouldn’t have remembered that episode if she had not made mention of that event. Most importantly, I wouldn’t have had anything to write about him, if he had not come back knocking in my inbox after over 10 years!
The question on my mind is this: what makes a guy think a girl is less wiser than she was, a decade ago?
I’m sure every female (single and married) have their inbox filled with all sort of unmentionables, which could mar a lot of so called solid relationships.
Just of recent, I had an influx of such. Being a budding entrepreneur, I have my business pages on Facebook linked to my personal page. These pages have my mobile number, so intending and new customers can easily contact me. This young man (I wouldn’t want to call him a boy because his action made him just that) must have taken a good look at me, assumed some nonsense, assured himself he was up to the task, wandered into my inbox and started a convo with me. Usually, I reply regardless whoever it is because I’m always eager to make sales (which entrepreneur isn’t). First question he asked was where I was chatting from, I told him Nigeria. I guess he wanted me to know he’s out of the country. His profile says he’s in Nairobi thereabout. I already knew it was going to be an interesting but short chat. Then he went on to ask if I was married or have kids after ascertaining that I am an ex-ladokite. Immediately you ask me such, I know where you’re headed. Sometimes I play along and act interested, most times I don’t.
You see, my years in the customer care world has made me very sensitive to invisible actions…I can easily make out a rude imp and a courteous person within a few exchange of lines. So this boy asked for my number, so he could add me up on WhatsApp. Of course, I asked what for, he gave me some flimsy reply, so I asked him to kindly get it from any of my business pages since he told me he saw it already but felt it respectful to ask me. Once I gave him the go-ahead to add me up, he went ballistic on me…I’m going to post screenshots of his reply so you know how it really went down. Oh, I didn’t send any response after his outburst… just blocked him.
I wasn’t supposed to be shocked but I was for a moment, because it affirmed my fears about mentally derailed people in nice looking skins, not roaming but holding posts in formal and informal organizations, places of worship, etc.
As for the one that came knocking on fb more than a decade later, did after a 2 weeks friendship filled with hideous lies, promising heaven and earth, to be faithful and serious. How he thinks he can pick up something that never was, after over a decade is appalling …for a while, he had me thinking some of his bolts were loose and to think his parents and family (probably even married) think they have a normal functioning son/hub in him!
Well, it starts like that, though I’m all for ‘shooting your shot’, because you never know but IMO, you don’t go hunting if you’re not properly equipped. If the rifle isn’t well targeted, in the process of shooting a shot, it may turn out to be a suicide mission.
Just as I was tidying this post, another one wandered inbox accusing me of making eyes at him, while in Lautech! According to him, our eyes would collide and probably his will tell mine that some days I will be his babe!! Anyone who knew me back then, would know this wanderer is nuts. I mean, how much craziness can a single lady take these days?
Yet to block him, who knows? He might be of use on dull days…if he doesn’t see this post, that is😁
Now, these guys are all ex-ladokites but they are not the perfect examples, because I know quite a number of great husbands this Institution has produced, so don’t go thinking that’s all there is to Ladokites, please…LOL.
That being said, Sisters help one of your own please! How have you been faring with the ones in your corner? Kindly, let’s have it in the comments section.
N.B: IMO: In my opinion.
Also, the ‘Marriage isn’t for the Feeble’ Series are still sitting pretty on my laptop…trying to get it repaired before resuming.
