I'm a 5Star Chic! (Please Read)

Just when I thought everything was wrong in the world, I tiny piece of irrelevant news goes and brightens my day. 

So here's what happened. I stumbled upon the ad for a Women's prayer meeting holding at This Present House in The Dome, Lekki Phase 1 this morning and I promptly decided to attend and start my day on a positive note. 

The last few weeks have been topsy turvy, physically and mentally, and maybe emotionally too. Last night I went to bed reminding myself some of God's promises for me and I just resigned myself to fate, hopefully fate would be a great outcome!

In any case this morning I requested an uber. As we approached the premises he asked how long I've been using Uber, I told him it's been a while, over a year. He seemed surprised. He said to me that I've got 5 stars on Uber. I didn't even know what that was or what it meant. Well apparently, drivers are not the only ones who get rated. Drivers actually rate their passengers too. LOL. He said all or most of the drivers who've carried me have given me 5stars. (He also added that if a passenger gets 3 or more 1 stars from different drivers, that passenger is blacklisted from Uber. Huh?)

So I asked what that meant, how do they decide how many stars they give a passenger. He said it all boils down to the kind of interactions they have with them and especially how the passenger treats/relates with them. He then went on to share some horror stories with me about some passengers. 

When he dropped me off he said he too would rate me 5stars. Hehehe. 

Unfortunately I cannot take uber ratings to the bank and cash it so.... Whatever. 

But it did feel good to hear...

Anyhoooo, I really just wanted to touch base with you guys. I've not been doing a good job on the blog this month so y'all can rate me 1star for Thelma Thinks. I actually have no excuses to make, hopefully things would get sorted out so that I can put in as much effort into my blog as I should. 

(Now to what I actually wanted you to Please Read). Also this month I promised the #WriteRight winner N10,000 and N5,000 worth of airtime. Unfortunately, we've received only 2 #WriteRight posts this month. I received 2 today. I think this defeats the purpose of #WriteRight so what I've decided to do is carry it over to October. The 4 posts that I've received this month will still form part of the October #WriteRight. To those who wrote, I do hope you understand? 




  1. Thelma the giant! lol

  2. From an empathetic point of view... I would give you a 3.5star rating.

    Hopefully October would be filled with bright ideas to make the blog even more exciting.

  3. Just breaking somebody's heart up and Dan. 😒😒😒 no me posts am you won't upload comments early.

    Can you disable the approval thing now? I think the trolls are gone.

    1. Kabuoy the only reason you think so is because I don't approve their comments...

    2. 😳😳😳😳😳😳 waawu!

      Okay 😊😊😊

    3. ewoo! was wanting it to be disabled too.

  4. Ahh Thelma o gini is this na. I partially understand but I am equally partially heart broken.

    hoping to replace my lost phone ASAP.

    oh I didn't share my black Saturday. I thought I did.

    okay on Saturday last week. Someone pick pocketed my purse containing my atm card ,my passport photographs, my Siwes program id card, my id cards,my school ids both faculty and departmental, my little change in the purse plus my phone o and even my handkerchief.
    This happened in front of onireke police station o just outside ojo barracks o. just imagine the kind of morale this guy got.

    meanwhile I sent plenty messages to the phone number pleading with him to return my ID's, yet he is still not responding.

    Why me !

  5. infact I am fully heart broken. Anyways God knows the best

  6. sorry kabouy, you would heal just like me.
    I have been so heartbroken by Thelma that i said to myself when i saw your comment "Thelma cant break what is already broken i am thick now and her no post et late approval wont get to me no more...kabouy just have to heal fast"

    1. Loooool! Infact... Iv been broken several times. I don tire! I will heal again. Thanks boo 😍😘

    2. Blink, I tap into that healing.

  7. I was expecting to hear their compensation for being rated 5 star. Maybe free ride or lunch at a restaurant of your choice.

    It all good, Congratulations.

  8. Kabuoy. I used to feel that way some time ago.
    These days it's more of maybe irritation, or anger. Then I close the blog page for another 3 to 4 days, but I'd be sure to find a new post when I return thereafter.
    I tire for Thelma, honestly.

    1. 😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘
      *hugs* Thelma see as you're breaking people's hearts up and Dan! Mama the mama! 🙌 You're well done ooo!
