Africans on buses and other stuff

Hello People, how are we doing, good? I thought so too. Its amazing how time flies, i remember when we yelled HAPPY NEW YEAR! its now almost the end of April. Am also glad summer is finally here, so goodbye jumpers and turtle necks and hello maxi dresses and skimpy wears.   I wanna say a big thank you to all the people following and commenting on my blog, i really appreciate you guys. Anyways i have a lil something to rant about today and i also wanna know your opinions about couple of things.

First, i  would like to say something about Africans on buses. Is it just me or does anyone think we tend to yell alot when we are talking on the phone? Geez! Africans especially Nigerians  can shout, kilode? (why). i was on the bus today and this man was yelling on the phone, i was trying to catch some sleep but his voice was just way to loud, not that i was eavesdropping, but i just couldn't help to listen to what he was saying. ( apparently he sent some cash to Nigeria and the receiver was unable to cash the money). Yeah, so that for that.  
I  read this book some months back and the question at the end was IS IT GOOD TO SNOOP ON UR PARTNER? I think its inappropriate cos you will just give your self unnecessary high blood pressure plus it doesn't hurt to give him or her the benefit of the doubt.

The second question was CAN YOU DATE YOUR FRIEND'S EX? My answer is if the brother is hawt  why not?? Nah am just kidding, its not nice cos if  any of  friend tries to date any of my ex, i wouldn't like it. So over to you guys what do you think?

nne when money is involved, I say it is ok to shout o lol. with all the stories we hear everyday of someone that sent money back home and another person used the money to do big boy....not that shouting will even solve anything sef lol. Don't snoop on ur partner. the moment you feel the need to, pack your bags and leave. on friend dating ex, even though it will be a lot weird and awkward, why put sand sand for another person garri cos the same garri run ur bele? lol

haha i went shopping for grocery and overhead the entire conversation some igbo ,adam was having with her son that was in naija. apparenty the boy refused to use his eyedrop and she was pissed lol. I dnt think its jst africans, i think its blacks in general..blacks are naturally loud,lol. I dnt think its good to snoop around when ur ex hasnt given u any reason to doubt him, but if i'm getting suspicious, for shizzle i would become sherlock holmes :p

Funny post. Sometimes I don't think they want to shout though, it's situational, like when money is involved like Olori said for example. Another problem is the issue of connection. Sometimes it's difficult to hear what the other person is saying clearly from the other line. I tell you, I come home sometimes (an Apartment) My Dad is indoors upstairs, I'm ascending the stairs and I can hear everything he's saying. It just is, I don't think we can change it, lol. As per snooping, if conditions call for it, then by all means. Caution needs to be taken though, and serious attention too if it reaches that point where one is getting suspicious/wants to snoop. Not a good look!

LMAO. My mum too yells on the phone, sometimes im like mum do u mind? ( I can say it to her though) she will beat the crap out of me lol. As for the snooping, i don't think its a good idea to do so cos it creates unnecessary headache. Thnaks for visiting my blog Ayokunle.

Naija ppl are generally loud. am so used to them sef. i cant blame them naija ppl have to talk on the phone over generators noise, conductors yelling, childrens crying, even bad network causes they used to yelling.

Also...i think a lot of other cultures are loud...i know some haitians and Asians who are loud!

Ope Adebayo said...

Lol Toluwa, well said. I cannot stand their noise too its pissing. Thanks 4 reading.
