Leave approved

My leave has been finally approved for two weeks! Joy

I won’t be blogging on Monday, I will be sweating away at the assessment in Sweden…I didn’t do extraordinarily on my GMAT (yes I’m a just above average test scorer but an excellent worker, I like to tell myself) and they usually ask weird questions like that at these assessment centres. I’m crappy at the math part. Wish me luck. I’ll let you know how the trip went on Wednesday so check back then.

Today is theme day in my photoblog community and the theme today is FREE. Check out my interpretation FREE TO FEEL.

Customer service is non existent in Nigeria. I went to the Salon yesterday to take out my braids of two weeks which had gone terribly rough. Unlike those of you abroad that keep your braids for monthsssss lol, just kidding, I was like you once. Anyway, I got to DOWNTOWN and the dude addressed some ladies saying ‘She wan do wash and set’. That’s when it all began.

‘Wash and set ko, for peson wey neva loosen the hair sef. Infact I tell you say I still dey for here? I dey go my house. Abeg no even try am’
‘Me too I dey go house, I no dey do’.
This is what happens everytime you go to downtown so I was prepared.
I was feeling Christian like, and said ‘Aunty it won’t take long, these are big braids’
‘No oh, you know they have ban okadas after 6, it will be haaad to find transport’
‘I’ll drop you at home’
‘His not dat, I want to cook’
I thought to myself ‘Fair enough’.
So I decided I had spent my anger on the previous post and just sat there until the guy himself took care of the job.

Its not that they can’t do it, it’s how they go about the whole thing that gets on my nerves. They went on and on for another 10 minutes after all that, I just wanted to yell SHUTT UPPPP.

So have a great stress free weekend all and pray for me to do well at the centre.

I went to "Make Me" in Surulere during my trip to naija....
There customer service was not bad at all...except for the Unilag chiks that were there that was just making unneccessary noises.
By the way...the guy that washed my hair....said he was doing his internship there (IT...Industrial Training). He studied food technology or something.....CAN U IMAGINE THAT.....?
