RANT!!!

I want to rant and I want to do it on my blog… right now I am hidden in a room in my house that no one would suspect I am in… why? U may ask…

So if you’ve been following my blog you know that our househelp of 16years decided to leave earlier this year, not long after we got another one- whats that his name again o!.. can u imagine I cant remember.. smh.. old age! Anyways lets call him determination…. Okay determination leaves weeks after, next up is tina fey… the diva and partime devil…. She was chased away… after her was Patience! Patience was God’s gift to us I tell yer, but last week her uncle came to get her….what a nice time for me to carry my big fat head home!
Since she left ive assumed the role of housegirl, everyday I wake up and I remember oh shit! Am the house girl…I put on my super house girl outfit… a pair of boxers and this black t-shirt I have….I sweep the whole house… see ehn my house is big so you can imagine what I go through every morning in an attempt to get the house clean, afterwards I wash plates… buy everything that we need to cook..and the annoying thing about my mum and dad is that they never think of everything they need to buy at once…so every 30 minutes you are going on an errand… seriously I am not caught out for this… pls spare me the ‘you are a girl crap’ …..
A funny thing happened today, so my dad said he wanted to cook efo, so I had to go and buy ‘shoko’ it’s a vegetable for efo… theres this mini-market like 10minutes from my crib so I get there and the woman selling the ‘shoko’ isn’t around…. But someone else was helping out… I tell the woman I need shoko and instead of the ram to bring it for me..she says I should go and take it.. there’s only one problem I don’t know which one is shoko….lol.. and I am too ashamed to say I don’t… lool.. what if I pick the wrong leaf now..does it mean I have to walk under this hot sun, endure my mother’s insults of how so-unlike-a-girl I am..just because don’t know ‘shoko’…so what do I do.. I see three different types of vegetable… I say a lil prayer and pick two.saying to myself one of them must be shoko…I hope so.even though I don’t need the other, to buy ogbono again na wahala… the dude was teling me his life history under hot sun…

Like seriously was I meant to be a girl… sometimes I don’t think so… I don’t like the kitchen, I don’t like house work…. I dnt know how to act with babies.. but I love lil kids… cute lil kids… I am more interested in being out there, making money, being busy… but I digress!

Today again pupcy was on my case telling me he knows all the work I am doing is hard for me cause its obvious I am not happy doing it..and he’s just looking at me and if he talks to me ill remember the day I was born…lol… I told him o! point blank that it is hard ooo!!
Hes like we are all useless(yeah right) cause growing up everything was done for us.. so we have become totally useless and yada yada yada… I just let the man talk… ok yes I grew up in a household where my clothes were being washed by washman, we had house keepers not helps ooh… keepers… they do a better job! I had my own personal driver… to sum it up I was spoilt… but I went to boarding school… and they showed me pepper…. And I was pounding shit in toilet 4 for three terms, mopping my room, sweeping, cleaning, washing my clothes doing things I have never done…and I learnt from there… I started entering buses… so I am growing…. so my dad can like to cut me some slack…I might not do the house work like the house girl would…cause er…I am not a housegirl..but at least I am trying.. and making my job easy would be appreciated..sheesh!

I have my project to type but noooo.. I have to go and pick the shoko in a few minutes, make eba …..wash plates… I don tire..i know I dey complain too much but really they need to get a new househelp a.s.a.p…… iv got stuff to do, ive got school to go to, got loads to sort out, my project… ive got meetings….ive got deadlines….

I just need a bloody break.

RANT OVER…back to SHOKO!

Fierce said...

well I don't know the difference either, they're all leaves to me... I mean seriously, who cares, they're all bloody leaves! I can tell the difference between lettuce and cabbage but just don't ask me to go out and get *cringes* shoko or bitterleaf or you're going to end up eating weeds! lol
I feel your pain jare, but at least my mother knows better than to ask me to cook anything un-English... she fears for her stomach lol
