How I Got Sacked (2)

How I Got Sacked (2)

EPISODE 2
“Hmm, let me quickly go and buy indomie
bellefull two packs” I quickly thought within
myself “oh no, where will I cook it? There is
not stove here talkless of pot to use in
cooking it” I thought again countering the
previous.
After thinking, thinking and thinking. I
decided to settle for rice. I rushed to mama
Risi who sold rice down the street.
Immediately I got there, I called her out
confidently to come and attend to me. I told
her my preferred combination of the food
and their respective amount, at last, it all
summed up to four hundred and thirty naira.
Then I ordered for two sachet of pure water
to make it up to four hundred and fifty
naira. Even tho I had plans to take out of
the juices we sold. I knew there is no way
water would be evicted from my meal.
Everything was packed into a polythene bag
for me. The time came for me to pay and as
I dipped my hand into my pocket, I told her
that she should bring out change for one
thousand naira.
“mi o ni change one thousand o, mo se se
shi shop ni o” she said, meaning she didn’t
have change for one thousand naira, that
she just opened for business of the day. So
I told her that she would get her money
later in the day when I also have change
and she agreed. She knew me from my
shop. She also comes to buy juices from us.
I got back to shop and settled down to
devour the free food I got as a result of
finding free money in my pocket. I took
three bottles of juice from the fridge. Sat
down gallantly in a corner of the shop. First,
I took another look at the food I was about
to devour. I haven’t eaten this much before,
for where! Where I wan see the money? But
you all know that money not worked for
would be spent anyhow and that was what
was manifesting right now. I decided to
count to three before commencing
consumption but before I could count to two
I lost interest and started devouring it
shamelessly. I didn’t obey the law of table
manners. Before swallowing a mouthful, I
had inserted another full spoon into my
mouth. In a jiffy, I was done with the rice,
beans, plantain and spagetti. It was time to
consume the two big meats that crowned it.
“omo, no time to waste time at all o” I said
loudly to myself and before you can say
TICK – TACK; I was done with them, I
gulped down the last of the three bottles of
juice and said “hallelujah” to the heavens for
providing this wonderful opportunity. I felt
my belly filled up to the brim. And you know
that once you are that filled up, you become
lazy, I mean very lazy, even to pack the
plates. I just stretched my legs on the other
plastic and began to wish I could be living
this kind of life everyday. You know what I
mean na.
About an hour 30 minutes later, the sweet
voice of a bread hawker attracted my
attention. Thoughts of topping the just
concluded meal with it crossed my mind and
I wasted no time in calling the bread seller.
She reversed to my shop and I helped her
put down her board. I ordered her to give
me two hundred and fifty naira worth of
bread and then add one hundred naira worth
of butter to the middle. As she was
preparing my order, a friend of mine, Eunice,
was waking by. She saw that I was buying
bread and she quickly crossed over and
begged me to buy for her. Feeling kind of
big, I asked the bread seller to grant her
wish. She ordered for one hundred naira
bread and fifty naira butter then she left.
Eunice was a my school mate, i always
wished I dated her but she always seem
inapproachable because she had a wild character but I always loved her because she was a very caring type and apart from
that, she knows how to control her pay in
order not to affect her education. Believe it,
she was part of the top 3 students in the
class.
“Ah, I no get change o” the bread seller
protested when I told her I was going to
bring out one thousand naira note from my
pockets.
“weytin we go do now? Me sef no get
change o, I never sell anything today.” I
explained to her and she herself said she
would come back to ask for the money
when she returned. I agreed and she left.
As I returned to my sit, I immediately started
devouring the bread. It was as if I hadn’t
eaten anything before. In a twinkle of an
eye, I had demolished the long loaf of bread and drank two more bottles of juice to push it down. I then stretched out my legs and relax so that I can fully digest it. Before I knew it, I was dozing off.
