Thelma Asks... (What Would You Do...)




Quick question guys:


Some downsizing was done at your former workplace and unfortunately you were one of those that was let go. You've been out of work for over a year, your job searches and other efforts have so far proven futile. Recently your significant other suggested you take your relationship to the next level and both your families think you should. The only problem is how do you contribute towards building a new home after the wedding, especially with a baby on the way. 

Dayo has been your good friend from the university and you both still meet up occasionally. Dayo works for a good firm and earns very well. You've always thought Dayo was lucky to snag such a job. One day you go to drop your CV at an office close to Dayo's and decide to drop in and pay D a visit. You're welcome and you both begin to discuss general issues; current affairs, politics, the economy, celebrity news, football and the current World Cup. You and Dayo have different opinions and you both argue out your points. Dayo's boss comes out of his office. 

"What is all the noise about? This is a place of work and not a beer parlour.... But I couldn't help but overhear your discussion. Dayo, your friend has some very interesting views. Here, this is my card, call me and we could have a drink, I'm also an Arsenal fan". 

You and Dayo laugh about it and after a few more words, now in hushed tones, you bid Dayo farewell. 

Later that weekend Arsenal has a match and just when you were wondering where you could watch your team play you remember Dayo's boss and the complimentary card. Immediately you place the call to him. 

"I'm not in town at the moment, I would be back on Sunday evening. By the way, I hear you're looking for a job. I asked Dayo some questions about you and I was impressed with what I heard" 

"Oh, yes sir. I'm searching for a job"

"Would you like to come work for me? I could use someone with your versatility, skills and expertise on my team"

"Yes sir! Yes sir! I would love to work for you sir. I'm ready to start whenever you want sir"

"Good. So Tuesday morning resume work at Dayo's desk. I'll hand him his sack letter on Monday". 

What do you say next?

.........

What would you do in this situation and why?

  1. Was enjoying happy and enjoying the gist until I got to the part; resume at Dayo's desk, my jaw dropped! oops! I don't think I will take the job, cant betray a friend except Dayo gives his blessings of which I will suggest a portion of my pay to him pending when he gets another.

  3. It all depends on WHO Dayo is to me.
    If he's an acquaintance, I'll accept the job after informing him though.
    But if he's who I call a FRIEND, i'll reject the offer... my friends mean too much to me.
    What's the possibility that this kindda Boss won't replace me with MY friend in the future? Mba.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!
