When you open the foodpack and see tiny meat ...
It is time to let it out....
Sometimes talking out can be a good form of therapy
So I am giving a platform to vent via my blogspace
Just let it out...
I did a short video about venting session with emphasis on those annoying things. Was just practising to see if I can do vlogging as well.  That's by the way, if I should then I would*winks*
Please click on the link for the short video  

or better still check out the full 5min video below

  and share your opinions or thoughts, I am itching to hear from you.
So let me start with the venting sessions....oya let's go there!
About to press your clothes and then the unexpected happens-there is power failure....
And power outage would just not allow one to do the necessary
Or is it the bus driver who stops in the middle of the road to cross over to buy diesel forgetting that people are on their way to work?
Presently, that one has to spend about 2000 naira to cook a reasonable pot of stew. Thanks to the rise in Tomatoes and to add to this tatashe has joined the league.
Have you attended an event and they are terribly behind the time schedule....??? How about the workers who are on a mission to drive you crazy and do everything to pull you down? It is called PHD (Pull Her Down) Syndrome
 Then the tailor who makes a mess of the clothes you gave her to sew. To add to it, she delayed the delivery date
 After typing a lengthy article only to find out that you didn't save it before NEPA struck( Na to start again fa, pretty annoying)
Standing on a queue  for long and when it finally gets to your turn, you are told to come tomorrow because they have closed for the day
Some hairdressers are not any better. Over your own money again, they will still be harassing you indirectly...
Please, can you relate  with a driver splashing mud on you on a wet day?
Or those that would not want to give way so you can cross the road
 Service provider nko, they say that they are giving bonus airtime yet you can hardly use the credit to make meaningful calls, before you know it you are out of airtime
 What of very slow internet? That could be annoying
 That guy who keeps stalking you to know if you are married?
Those that refer to you as ''Miss'' in form of èkpè  (curse)
Flies that wont go away that target your eardrums and would follow you all the way to your bedroom
On a shopping spree and it is after you have bought what you wanted that you now see better finer quality ones e.g It is after you have bought shoes that you see better beautiful ones
Trying to explain something to someone and he/she doesn't seem to get your drift
Washing clothes and the stain refuses to go

What's up with tailors???

Looking at the picture of the model in the magazine, I imagined how the cloth she was wearing would look on me-extremely perfect!
What was left of me was to get the material and I would be off to the tailor.

I wasted no time in getting the fabric. Next thing was to decide on the tailor to go to. I had three in mind. The first always delayed. She would leave your work and do others, pushing me till I was fed up. The second was very expensive and it appeared she used to steal material. Her handwork was usually too tight and she always complained that the material was not a enough. Now, the third stayed  close by, she was young, trendy and her last work for me was the bomb. So I settled for the third option.

Before going to meet her, I actually prayed seriously because tailors can be very wicked. They have used me to do yeye in time past. So I got to her shop, showed her what I wanted , negotiated and the date was set for me to collect the cloth. As day approached for collection, I was not at peace. I still carried on and lookedforward to rocking my new dress.

Just as I feared, the tailor made a mess of my cloth. She obviously gave her apprentice to do the sewing.I really did know what to do.I was just venting and venting then kept quiet when I saw I was the only one talking. So this wicked tailor decided to do some amendments and that didn't solve any issue. 
The cloth is in my closet as I write and I look at what could have been to what is now. Money wasted, time wasted, energy wasted all because of one tailor!

I'm terribly hurting but had to cool down when I got to know that many people encountered such problems in the hands of artisans.
So why do they love frustrating their customers???I do not seem to understand. Have they forgotten that by showing lack of expertise that they have lost a customer and potential customers?? I think the solution for me would be to learn the skill of sewing because I have not been lucky with tailors so far.

What has been your experience with artisans particularly tailors? Pls share. Let's get it off our chests!
