How many times have you been tempted to scream at someone be it friend, acquaintance, relative and most frequently a perfect stranger; MIND YOUR DAMN BUSINESS!!!
Ahn Ahn! can't Nigerians mind their business? Na curse? Anywhere you go someone's nose is all up in your biz.
I am a first time Mom and just recently had my baby, from when I was pregnant and showing the comments and advise started; don't you think this jeans is too tight for you? Should you be wearing covered shoes? Why don't you wear slippers let the blood flow.
It got worse when I gave birth, of course I had to go out and couldn't leave him at home. Every where I went; Is this baby not too small to come out with? fine baby, see plenty hair, you are not holding him well, hold his neck well, he is not wearing a cap. Even heard; Why are you bringing out OUR baby na isn't he too young? Huh? Our what? You follow me inside labour room?
Another strange episode; was in church and baby was fussy and I went out to breastfeed (no bottles this time) A lady walked past me saw me breastfeeding and asked with a smile on her face; Is he your baby? I was like HUH? God knows I am trying to curb the spirit of sarcasm in my life but this people are not helping me. So in my mind I responded; No its my neighbours baby, the pikin been dey cry so I talk say make I feed am ndok. (sorry just had to insert that efik word in there.)
Do you have your own experience of someone been all up in your business and how did you handle it? Please spill.
