OFFICE GOSSIP



I was late for work that morning. I parked my Mercedes Benz close to the street across the office building and walked up the staircase. I shouldn’t have had too much to drink last night. It was Lauren’s birthday and she had a party at an upscale restaurant. I looked at myself through the glass mirror lined on the side of the building. I looked like a truck had run over me twice. My hair was disheveled and my mascara was running. I had to run into the nearest bathroom to fix myself. I had my flat iron in my purse to flat iron my hair, thank goodness. I got to the 9th floor where my office was located and ran towards the nearest bathroom, as I got closer to the door I heard voices and laughter, so I slowly opened the door, all the stalls were occupied. All the voices were familiar.

“Yeah can you imagine, who she thinks she is anyway, Miss Thang” the first voice said.

“I know can you imagine, she thought she looked dashing in the Bebe dress yesterday, when she got tipsy it was very funny.” The second voice said.

“Very true, the boss was not very pleased.” The third voice said.

“Oh please, that man loves her, he adores the ground that she walks on are you kidding me?” the second voice said.

“Yes I believe that too” the first voice said.

“Are you kidding me, things are happening around here that I am so oblivious to” the third voice said.

These ladies are talking about me. Yes I got tipsy yesterday at the restaurant and also got a little clumsy, knocking over things on the table, I knocked a tray over and spilled red wine on my co workers dress. She was very angry. I command a lot of respect in the office and maybe that is why these ladies do not like me. I am also my boss’s favorite. He actually does kiss the ground that I walk on, he asks for my advice on things before he makes decisions especially with office work.

“She has a dragon tattoo on her lower back did you see it.” The third voice said.

“I know, she is very interesting” the second voice added.

“I overheard big boss yesterday saying that they are considering giving her a promotion” the third voice said.

“Really? I have worked my butt off here and I haven’t gotten a raise not to talk of the promotion. All I get are bonuses” the first voice lamented.

“This company is driving me nuts, I am about to go and look for a job elsewhere.” The second voice said.

“Its not that easy honey” the third voice added.

“Whenever I see her, I feel like dousing hot coffee on her.” The first voice said. I was shocked. Althea who seemed so friendly and always wanted to help me out with everything wanted to douse hot coffee on me. This conversation is a serious eye opener.

“Really, after making me fall out of favor with the big boss, I just totally hated her.”the third voice said. Sandra actually hates me. She fell out of favor because my plan for the Riverside project looked more promising than hers.
“Yes and even then she is dating my cousin’s ex boyfriend, every time I see her with him, I am about to choke her.” The second voice added. Rebecca, my classmate in elementary school, someone who I grew up with was saying all this about me. It wasn’t my fault that Lawrence ditched Kimberley and was chasing me all over the place. Some women need to learn how to keep their man.

“You guys lets get going before we are declared missing and you know Miss Thang is not yet at the office.” The third voice said.

“Yes is she rather fashionably late this morning, she is probably hung over.” The second voice said and they all laughed. Sandra came out of the stall first, followed by Rebecca and then Althea who looked like she was about to say something and then stopped. The three of them were shocked to see me standing there. They knew I heard everything. Everything.

RIP CHIDINMA MBALASO

I was an avid viewer of Koko Mansion and really the reality show was just a whole bunch of females who wanted to be the Kokolet, i followed it up on You Tube cause it was really funny. There were certain females in the house that were my favorites, Rita and this one girl in particular and to hear that the girl is dead breaks my heart. She was very classy and not like the other girls in the show, she was also quiet too. She died on my birthday after being in a coma that she had from an accident in Kaduna. I heard she was looking for a blood donor and never got help before passing away. May her soul rest in perfect peace. At 22 , she may never have fulfilled her dreams at that age and it just makes me realise the uncertainty of this life everyday. Let us make everyday count, grab opportuinites as they come and have no regrets. None!!!

MUSINGS FROM LAST NIGHT

Why do women claim men when men do not claim them? I reallydont understand. I saw this very pretty lady  screaming on the street hollering about a man who is her "ex" so why the hell is she still claiming him and he isnt claiming her. Okay it started like this. His female cousin walks up to him and wants to have a convo and he walks towards her and the girl he was with gave her the look. Cousin asked him why the girl was staring at her like that and he didnt respond next thing the girl walks up to his cousin and is screaming "He is my boyfriend" Hahahaha and Cousin tells her that she is family and the girl doesnt listen next thing the female friend is cussing the cousin out with the b word and f word and s word and all the crazy words in the book. he tells female friend that that was his cousin that she needed to stop. Both females are going back and forth with each other. Bottom line of the story is the female friend is an ex girlfriend or whatever the story is but really, getting aggressive and claiming a man in the middle of the street is totally totally distatseful. What do you think? who was wrong?

MY NEW AMAZON KINDLE

I finally got one of those gadgets you can read with, the Amazon Kidnle. My boss got it for my birthday. One of those "Ask and you shall receive" It works oh.  I couldnt believe it. I am still hugging that lightweight toy. Thats my new toy until i find something else to replace it with. I have games and some books on it and it has been keeping me engaged. I can take recommendations on something good to buy and download.
