The first female chief judge was recently appointed in Nigeria. This sparked a lot of debate in my place of work .It didn’t help that a page in Daily trust Friday 13th was asking if women are smarter than men. Of course since I am a female I had to support my gender: my colleagues were adamant that males were smarter.
I told them the old adage of what a man can do a woman can do better. My colleague asked that me and a fellow female colleague should try and toast a guy. This brought a barrel of laughs because we didn’t realize how difficult toasting is .I really tried but it was very difficult. Apparently ladies are usually very nasty to people trying to toast them. They according to Habib pretend they can’t hear you,or talk about you as if you are not in their presence.
I learnt some useful tips: my colleagues corrected me and here is the six major tips.I still don’t know how to toast a guy,but I can avoid being toasted by someone I don’t like.
1. Men make lady they are shadowing to notice their presence.
2. Make eye contact women are different and I thank God for the differences
3 Tell small lies.
4. Create conversation
5. Collect phone numbers.
Because we couldn’t toast a guy properly it sparked another debate about gender equality. They said women always wanted the gains without pain. We wanted equality but we don’t want equal responsibility.
They asked me if I was married will I want to pay the rent, school fees and other responsibility carried out by male .I said no because I have always believed that is a man’s job. A woman’s money is for herself only. There is nothing wrong with buying gifts for your husband or burrowing him money if he is broke. They had nothing to say, I know I might sound selfish but women have their roles to play too. In conclusion men and women are different and smartness is based on the individual not the gender.
