Just Can't Deal!





Last night my friend Jibola* calls me, all irate and impatient. He tells me that he and bae broke up about a month ago and she's returned the ring. But that's not why he was calling. 

About a year ago Jibola (who was once a boo, of sorts) approached me to incorporate two companies for him. He made a deposit and I began the process. After the names were approved I got him the forms and and gave him directions on how to fill them. He wanted to sign and hand them to me immediately but then I told him, "No, you can't be the only director in a limited liability company. Get at least one other person and apportion some of the shares to them, the amount is at your discretion". He asked me whom I suggest he get and I remember stating clearly that if he didn't have any partners in the business that could come on board as directors, he should add a family member, either his parent(s) or any of his siblings. He's got at least four siblings and they're all adults, so he had a big pool to pick from. I explained that It's got to be someone that he can trust and hold accountable. A director is entitled to a portion of your company to the extent of the shares assign to him/her. That's why if you're registering with no business partners, trusted immediate family members are your next best option.  

So I was surprised when he came to me with the signed forms and the name of his other director was his girlfriend's, with her signature. It wasn't my place to ask or know why, for all I knew they were in business together; in which case it made sense for her to be a director. And they were indeed planning to get married at the time, so... 

Now Jibola no longer wants to her as a director of his companies. That's a looooong thing, contrary to what he thought it's not by 'tipexing' her name and signatures off the forms! I explained the odious process and told him  that if I'm going to handle it, it comes with my legal fees, in addition to what it would cost at CAC. My dear friend says that I should handle it and adamantly says he's not paying a dime for the work. He says that I should have told him that this could happen. Huh?

He's done my head in. First off, my job is simply to carry the details you give me to CAC and get the job done, provided everything is in order and in accordance with CAC regulations, which I ensure it is (was, in his case). But I even went further and told him who he could use and why. Unfortunately love was shacking him and he made her a director. How on earth is that my fault? Please how was I to know that they would break up? How was I to convince him not to use her without sounding like a jealous ex? Was I supposed to force a grown man to make his family member(s) his director(s) if he didn't want to, is that even my place? For all I knew the business belonged to them both or she was an investor, wouldn't it then be ridiculous for me to say "nna, don't make this babe a director"?

Eishhhh! I'm way too busy to start my week with this headache biko. 

Y'all need to really think about the decisions you make when you're in love. Just saying...


*aproko mode activated* speaking of decisions you make when you're drunk in love with someone, is there any you've made that you later came to regret? Spill biko! Hehehe (just last night we were talking about this chica that tattooed Le boo's name on her nether region. Now Le boo don waka. Classic example of regrettable action caused by love. LOL)

  1. Lol one chance. The guy is funny though, I guess he said he wouldn't pay because the whole thing is still fresh, and T,u should have told him in a way that wouldn't make him see you as a jealous ex,depends on d kind of person he is,the guy should take a chill pill biko,it has happened and solution is tyr next thing and not blames. Back to making decisions when in love, na tatoo bin dry reign one time,my neighbor had her ex boos name on her waist and its been two years since they separated now she wants to cover it up but the fear of tatoo pains is d beginning of wisdom for her. Lols. I don't take decision I would regret later when dating someone, never I don't, when we learn not soak in all our emotions when in love then I guess we wouldn't be crying foul after break up,I remember an ex suggesting we do something fetish back den to make our love strong and I said never ,the dude went all u don't love me,yadayadayada and bla bla bla,I dust my slippers sharparly no time biko. Long epistle, chaiiii,sowwy.

  5. Will he keep kwayet! LOL. Which part of ''I explained that It's got to be someone that he can trust and hold accountable. A director is entitled to a portion of your company to the extent of the shares assign to him/her.'' did he not hear? The guy should park well abeg.
    One of my sisters' apprentice has ''I love Kayode'' written on her arm and from the story we heard, she cheated on the so- called ''Kayode'' with another man and got pregnant whom she later married.

  7. Story for the gods. Did he really refuse to pay? Because you supposedly didn't advise him right?

    Peeps should always learn to take responsibility for their actions and in actions. When someone suggested a family member and you went and brought a fiance, does married and almost married sound alike? This is a non issue biko. If he won't pay for the service, biko don't render. And if/when he decides to pay, let him pay 80% of the fees upfront so there will be no stories that touch later.

    Peace.

  11. Thelma there are many lawyers in Nigeria. You might consider setting yourself apart by giving some additional services. In this case, further advising him when he came back with his girlfriends signature- I know I know you couldn't be bothered, but imagine you had voiced out your concerns I'm sure your ex would today have appreciated your extra effort.
    Everything is not always about money- it's called added value and that's what sets those in way advanced climes apart from us.
    Outside the country you go for a pap smear, na you fix appointment oh. Still before you part your legs the doctor or nurse will read you all the rights in the world and even describe what they are about to do to the last even though it might not be your first time.
    I'm sure you know where I'm going- supposed little things like this set them apart even though you might argue its to prevent lawsuits and bla bla at the end of the day it's still value added.
    Just think about it, be that lawyer that's outstanding!

    1. I voiced my concerns, I told him the import of choosing wisely, I advised him to use family, I told him why. Yet he made his decision which is entirely his prerogative, reminding me that they will soon be man and wife.
      Being a lawyer means you also have to be an adviser and inform clients of every possible/probable outcome, good and bad, that's part of my work ethic. I did this yet he made his choice. I can't imagine what else I could have possibly done...

  12. Lol. Thelma i have patience. I aint signing anything with non..relatives or lovers. People just be acting funny...even marriage can be undone in this life.

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!

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!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
