Sisi Vero!

After the first interview I was so done with her, like soooo done! Her eyes kept straying to her phone, and this one time my phone rang, it was my guy from Nigerian Breweries calling to know what drinks I needed. The second I picked his call she jumped up and went to makes hers outside. Her call took longer than mine. She casually strolled back minutes later and gingerly perched her pert bum on the seat. 

I was done!

But she resurfaced later and I really needed someone so I let her come onboard. 

A few days after she resumed I had a staff meeting, sat them all down and told them how things will be going forward. They listened quietly with sombre expressions, the air was tense, like they all had things weighing heavy on their minds. Talk done, I asked them if they had any thing they wanted to talk about and immediately they all started to talk at once, each one struggling to be heard above the others. All except Vero. I calmed them down and we took it one at a time. One after the other they shared their grievances which I tried to dispel until the last complaint. 

"Vero, what about you? No question?" I asked. 

Several pairs of eyes turned to her. 

"Err, madam, just one question"


"Madam, when customers come in the night, can they buy drink for me?"

We all stared. Like seriously, each person had just raised some really pressing issues that we all needed thrashed and Vero's only concern was if it was okay for lecherous men to buy her drinks...

Once again I was reminded why I shouldn't have hired Vero. 

But you see, Vero is turning out to be the hen that laid the golden egg. 

On the day that Vero started work, some male friends of her came around. Those guys were responsible for over half of the sales that day. If we made 60k, the guys spent 40k!

They were 4. They bought 48 pieces of fried goat meat. LOL. I still don't know how they ate it. 

Oh, and they kept the drinks flowing. 

Ever since then Vero has one group of friends or the other coming in and splurging, and Vero will just be cat walking upandan, shaking her bumbum with one smug smile on her face. Like Yes I'm the baddest bitch in town! 


Regular customers also seem to be under her spell and are buying more, just so that Vero can keep coming back to their tables. 

Sometimes I have to bring her down to size, to keep her grounded. There seems to be the need to clip her wings a little, just a little...

Vero gets on my nerves daily; she's absentminded, she's not dedicated, her mind isn't in the right place, she doesn't want to get her hands dirty and sometimes act like she's above certain tasks. But apparently Vero's milkshake brings all the boys to the bar... 😕

So what do you think. Is Vero good for business or bad for business?



  1. Definitely good for business

    Ignore the bad(I reckon that's hard),embrace the good. And keep clipping her wings

    Finally accept she might not stay that long... Either u let her go or she legoooo

    1. well said. Chrisyinks

    2. Good, very good.
      A girl

  2. Lmao
    All things happen in their due time for a reason.
    So dear Tee leave sisi vero for now ...she is only acting her part of The universe play

  3. Vero is the reason why men choose some bars over the other. Most men tend to overspend when trying to impress a waitress, which is good for you. Keep her but make sure you keep her in check, even if customers are flirting with her, it shouldn't affect the quality of her work

  4. Lol. I think Vero is good for business. Just make sure she knows who the actual BOSS is...

    1. Well said!

      Overlook Tee. It always works.

  6. looks to me here like the pros vastly outweigh the cons. money has to be made. They can buy her crates of drinks when they come in the evening. And add fried goat meat(lots of it) while at it. so far it's your coffers they are filling

  7. Lmao! She's def good for business, just a lil extra work on your side to always "check" her.

  8. They can buy her the drinks, but she shouldn't have them till she signs out.

  9. Better Keep her...hell increase her commission self.

  10. I think she is bad for business. Ofcourse when you do your cheques and balances, her presence is resulting in a larger monetary gain. But it comes down to what your business ethos is. Are customers attracted from her “milkshake”/charms the kind of business growth you hope and pray for? Or you just pray for profit sha, any which way it comes? Now, all she’s doing is shaking her tush around, and the money keeps rolling in. Hope it does not get to the stage where she’s shaking the same tush, with the same smug smile, but with a different agenda. Think am well.

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!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
