Spill or Let Sink?

I am the general manager at a high net worth banking institution. On a daily basis, I have to approve wire transfers over a certain amount and pay close attention for any red flags. Over the past 9 months, I have approved over 6 wire transfers to an offshore account for my sisters in laws husband (in his name). A part of me felt it was suspicious but I didn't think much deeper and chose to ignore it. Me and my SIL have grown closer with each other over the last year. She has opened up to me about their financial hardships and how she is not sure if they will make it. Her husband is forever pleading poverty and has been looking for a reason to fight her at any chance he gets. He hardly comes home and has been seeing another woman in his office for a year. I don't know how deep their issues go but he seems to be restless. My sister inlaw works but she can only cope with 2 of her 4 kids on her own salary if she leaves. 
I don't know if I should tell my SIL about these wires just incase he is planning to leave her dry or should I just mind my business. I can see the ship sinking but would I be wrong for just watching? I don't want to be dragged into family issues.

Above is today's chickchat with @conniegirlswag

I understand not wanting to get involved in family issues, but this sounds a bit too much to just watch while the ship sinks...


  1. I think she should subtly hint the husbands actions to her sister in law

  2. Give her an anonymous tip but ensure there is enough information in it for her to know that the tipper knows what she/he is talking about. I wouldn't jump into the issue head on sha, maka ndi uta.

  3. An anonymous tip might make it easier and better for everyone but bae u re definitely telling her


  4. Dear Poster, I would have advised you spilled; but you might lose your job in the process should he find out you are the little bird. He might decide to report you to high authorities in your office. Please thread carefully or speak to an elderly person in your family that is close to the parties involved.Best of luck.

    1. Which brings about my next opinion, DO NOT TELL HUSBAND FIRST( except you think he has a church mind, which I doubt), Husband would have the upper hand and turn your truth into a lie, blackmailing blackmailing you in the process. Subtly pass hints to SIL dear poster. And pray for them. Prayer is always a winner

  5. I assume the poster was male, no?

  6. Some men sha, you watch your own wife n children suffer , if there is any justice in the world, he would lose all that cash.

    They would rather spend on a whore than make it work with a good woman. I tell women of today, have a maximum of 2 or 3 kids just incase.

    The institution of marriage has been monetized, bastardized and all you can imagine.

    I say, give her a hint to investigate further. However, do it with utmost caution. Cos you ought to be a professional an not divulge confidential info.

    So sad

  7. There's something called duty of secrecy in banking, you'll have to choose between your job or your sister in-law. But if you have to talk to anybody, it should be the husband

  8. Wow! This is dicey...client confidentiality to be considered.

    Does he have any good friends in higher authority with same bank? Speak to them about the challenge...especially because of the wife and children. Then speak to the man; in-laws husband about why you know- transactions and have observed- home troubles. I'm thinking that might aid your decision on how to spill.

    I don't think he should keep quiet.

  9. What Anonymous 1:39pm said. Anonymous tip with enough information to let the woman know that the tipper knows what (s)he is talking about.

  10. Keeping quiet shd not b an option. I'll go w d anonymous tip

  11. Chai! Some men are going straight to hell!!!! Haba?! That's just not fair.

    Blogittup is making sense but mehn... keeping quiet is not an option abeg... that woman needs to know what lies ahead of her. so i'll go with the anonymous tip thing if it is possible and it won't be traced back to her. subtle hints. Like indirect spilling.

    O ga ooo...

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…


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.

One More Post...


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
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


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…


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.
