Porno…

I have been on my new gig two weeks almost and things are already going the wrong way!! Well, what do you expect when you are working with 2 Ugandans, 1 Nyaru and 1 Zambian? More on the jobo later, I moved outta home base and I was somewhat scared of moving into a house full of adults who you know, but you don’t know, you get me? you have been seeing them from time to time, but you really don’t know them. People you call the obligatory African title of Auntie and Uncle and now you refer to them on a first name basis(if my mum knew I’d get a tongue lashing)..people who actually treat you like an adult..people who are grown up..I mean grown ass adults the youngest being 35, which is like years older than I am!! So anyway, I live with these people, and out of respect I won’t unleash the dirt on them..I don’t care, some of your house mates be fucked up too!! So it’s one of those houses, regular..don’t have the luxury I am used to..like my own, my own pc, my own bathtub..I literally just go there to sleep after work and eat, shower and leave..yeap, that’s what 14 hour shifts do to you! Honestly I don’t know the number of people i live with but I’ve seen 4..the 4th was at the beginning of the week! So anyway, my place is like a boarding school dormitory, you never see everyone and the most you see is when you are eating..meal times are magical..Back to the job, these bayaye I work with are pissing me off. We have a simple arrangement, we cover each other’s shifts when you want to get off and the bosses don’t have to know jack about it..when your pay check comes, you pay whoever covers your shift..easy peasy..now it so turns out that one of the bayaye who was given the company car has been mouthing off to the bosses and shit! And this same chap doesn’t know I got dirt on him, the way he is always bringing porn magazines to work and dashing off to meet that East African lady who came for the weekend yet the bugger has a wife in London..he gets extra shifts to cover and he doesn’t even show up and he is generally being the boss of us coz he is the one who the bosses talk to(or is it coz he always has something to say?). Same dude tried to play me and my Zambi friend by making us pay for fuel yet we don’t use the car that much..imagine telling us to pay 35 quid a week for fuel..he doesnt know I am an accountant and have a red belt in using a calculator! The other ugandan and nyaru chap bambi pay so much for fuel, if i’m feeling any worse than I am then I might whisper to them that they are getting thoroughly ripped off!! So dude’s beef with me is pending..I’m about to mess up badly..let him keep running his mouth..atte on top of that I ain’t covering his shifts anymore coz he is going to get laid! Laid my left foot! He has two strikes pending, and I ain’t afraid to make it one strike! My Zambi friend is weird, he has a thoroughly latin name, wears huge glasses, speaks alot and guess what..has two masters in bio-chemistry..yes, one technial and one M.Phil..a proper genius!! He actually managed to study both on scholarship and from Europe on top of that! He makes fun of Ugandans, well not fun of all of us, just the muyaye..he found in the office two porn magazines and laughed his head off saying ‘That’s why you Ugandans had whole fishing villages being wiped out by AIDS, you are too excitable!’..Yeah you guessed right, he has covered a shift for those two Ugandans whenever a booty call comes through! And another thing, he disses the way those other two chaps behave, something about being a scholar and a fellow..well you can’t blame him..he does have his books right! I know you are asking how come he is doing kyeyo, well he just grad’ed and is looking for a job..details of this i know not..

Am i bringing back Askari diaries? No..a buddy told me the word Askari is so bizzare..I just might have to call this the Security detail..i know sounds flashy like I am some Intelligence Agent from World War II who is acting as a double agent(you should read that book by the way)..

 

So there it is, my new gig, more drama, more heartache, more bayaye reading porn magz….but what to do..C’est la vie! I love the new town I live in , I can walk everywhere..plus the Sony shop is having a grand sale..i spotted this 8 GB MP3 walkman with bluetooth headphones..i might cheer myself up you know!

 

Have a great weekend!

    you know at the end of a 14-hour shift as you lie on your bed too tired to even bother with a thought, but somehow lay your hands on a Bible and turn to the book of the wise man, it suddenly begins to make sense… the having to go through a similar ordeal the next day and the next and the day after that too, that “it’s like chasing after the wind”. But perhaps what keeps us going is that the wind is fun chasing anyhow, of course until you quit chasing! The irony of life!
