G B E S E ! ! !

On sunday after church I decided to do my shopping, so I drove to Ikeja City Mall right after first service, that was about 10:00 am in the morning. Naim as I reach there, I collect parking ticket, dem say na 200 naira flat rate. Hmmmm. No wahala. I kon dey reason to myself, the thing wey I come buy na 300 naira pere, parking 200. LOL. I dey reason am dey waka when one babe and her lovely cute baby boy stopped me to say hi, she say she dey watch my youtube videos... ha! I'm a celebrity! I need to start signing autographs sha because she was the 4th person that stopped me that day to say "Hi Sisi Yemmie". Thank you guys for making me feel special! My body is toto-ring me

After I greet am finish, nai I say make I even bring out my wallet: I noticed it wasn't inside my bag. Ok, no panicking. I always keep my wallet in a separate compartment in the car incase those lagos fast boys decide to grab my bag in traffic. Good strategy right? So I walked as fast as my koi-koi shoe would allow me to the car, mildly sweating at this point, I checked the special compartment and couldn't find the wallet. Ah! Gbese! I checked boot, everywhere in the car, almost checked the engine, nothing! I checked my bag like 10 more times, no wallet. 


I found only 50 naira in my bag. I gave the rest as offering in Church.

At this point I was already heating up, so I went to the ticket kiosk and explained to the lady in the most apologetic humble way possible; I told her I hadn't even entered the mall, that I can't find my wallet, abeg make dem allow me pass. . . abeg na.

She said " eh...what will I do?"

Omoge, all I want you to do is check the time I drove in, you can see it's not up to 10 minutes, allow me pass. I forgot my wallet.

She stared at me blankly.

I asked " did you hear what I just said?"

She shrugged her shoulders.

G    B    E    S    E!  200 NAIRA GBESE!!! Aiye mi o!

So I asked to see her supervisor, she said I should go to the other ticketing kiosk that I will find supervisor there. Sigh. Ok.

I entered my motor and drove to the second kiosk. 

I started narrating my story again, the lady I met just had this confused look on her face like "so"?

Ema gbami!

So I told her that I was told to come here, that a supervisor will attend to me. She said ...

" abeg who told you that one, no supervisor here oh"

So that first babe just ping-ponged me so she doesn't have to deal with me. All because of 200 naira. I don suffer. Na me be dis?

While I was busy explaining to her I heard someone from behind call my name, I swear, I almost fainted with embarrassment, the voice was that of a guy, I turned around, I couldn't recognise his face. He asked when the problem was and I told him, he swiftly proceeded to pay. Apparently, we follow each other on twitter and we went to the same uni but I couldn't for the life of me remember. 

In that moment I knew it was God showing me love through this guy. My other options would have been to take a taxi home to get my wallet, that would've cost me nothing less than 4000 naira OR  phone a friend OR  carry my car on my head home OR beg a random person (yeeeepa!) OR sweep Ikeja Mall.

Thank you Gbenga Alakija for not letting me sweep ICM that beautiful sunday. God Bless you!

  4. Lol, I can only imagine the way you were sweating! Just for the record never expect sympathy (or kindness for that matter) from fellow women in that kind of situation o. Particulalry sales girls etc, they always have one kain attitude like you are dragging their men together. If a man had explained the same thing they would gladly help...Big ups to Gbenga, followed him just cos he allowed God to use him to bless a certain special somebodi... Love u babes xxx

    Thank God for the help he sent! I cannot for the life of me imagine what would have happened with the attitude the staff on duty put up.

  21. Something similar happened to me recently. I was at the American embassy and then some guy comes to check my docs and is like I am missing an important document and I have to print it if not I wont enter the embassy, at that point I was like ah! Lobatan. I started panicking cos the line was super long and it was almost my turn to get inside. I now started running looking for where to print. I found staples close by entered about to use computer the thing said insert card. I spoke to cashier, told her my wallet wasnt with me and my car is parked far she said I could get their cash card which costs $5 and I had 0.50cents on me. I started crying, thinking about my options which were to run to the car get money run back to staples print and then run back to the embassy or to beg someone for money. The former option did not seem viable so I started begging oh! I begged this old woman she said she did not feel comfortable using her credit card so she gave me $3 cash which was not enough which was not enough. Then I begged another young sisi I saw there and she said she did not have cash. FInally one of the workers saw me begging and was like 'it is against company policy to to beg other customers in the store, ask for help next time' that is how she let me use their computer and I printed. Thankfully, I used the $3 the old woman gave me to pay for the print job and ran as fast as my legs could carry me to the embassy. My spot was still there and I was glad cos going back to the end of the line wont have been funny at all. Mine was not a friend but I blessed the woman and I learnt a lesson to be not so ignorant when some strangers ask for help at times..sorry my post is long but I just thought to share :)
