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?
