Scam Business – Wrong Or Right?

Hello beautiful people, and welcome to my little world!
I was just checking out my spam box, and stumbled upon this email and was blown away at the amount of trick people employ just to milk other people’s pockets… See picture below.

This is scam! We don’t have previous contact of any kind… So, how come you are mailing me for a ‘business’ as ‘huge’ as this? Too many questions…

Many have been victims of this kind of scam, and by the time they realise anything, they’ve already been milked off millions of money. They usually call those who fall prey the ‘greedy ones’. Yes! Because they want to reap without labouring or probably think the scamming party is a novice.

Please people, be on the look out for mails as this. Try as much as possible to display them like I’m doing. I know you get emails like this most of the time.

Ok, tell me. Am I wrong or right in revealing this email?

Out Of Breath – Hectic July 26!

We all seem to insist on how busy, busy, busy we constantly are. Let’s put things in perspective: tell us about the craziest, busiest, most hectic day you’ve had in the past decade. – Daily Post

Hmmm…

I can’t really pinpoint any day now, I think I’ve had a couple of them in the recent past. The one that almost got me out of breath is this one:-

Campaign for my school’s departmental presidential election has been in top gear… I had my ‘favourite’ candidate in mind. Of course I’ve made plans to be there on July 26 (election day) to vote for my favourite candidate. I’ve already envisioned ‘our’ victory.

On the other hand, I have a friend’s wedding to attend on the 27th of July. In between these two days, I have loads of school work to do (it was a weekend), I also have church service to attend – I’m a worker in the church. I chose to dedicate the night hours when I’m done with major daily activities to do my school works… Great plan! So I thought.

On the 25th of July, my friend who is about to wed contacted me to help her prepare ‘chin-chin’ (crunchy Nigerian snacks) for the wedding occasion to spice up the day. Not minding my money I would spend in making the chin-chin for a wedding occasion of over 100 guests, I realised immediately that I was going to have a hectic July 26.

I had to ulter my initial plans for the weekend which is more activities. I obviously can not delete any of the activities except to decline my friend’s request, but I wanted to prove to her how to make sacrifices for someone you call your friend…because she acts selfishly most of the time.

Imaginary Friend – The Friend I Never Had!

Many of us had imaginary friends as young children. If your imaginary friend grew up alongside you, what would his/her/its life be like today? – DailyPrompt

Imaginary friend? What’s that!

Wikipedia explains it as: a psychological and social phenomenon where a friendship or other interpersonal relationship takes place in the imagination rather than external physical reality. Although they may seem very real to their creators, children usually understand that their imaginary friends are not real.

… and Daily Post is asking me how my imaginary friends would look like if they grew up alongside with me. Well, here’s how:-

1. They would value me
2. Would be patient with me
3. Would always pray for me
4. They would still keep in touch with me, no matter the distance, time, and cost.
5. They’d overlook my mistakes and make corrective criticisms.
6. They’d give me priority in everything including online.
7. They’d champion the announcement of my beautiful blog to they whole world.
8. They would not rely on rumours they hear about me, they’d ask me to confirm.
9. They would not be envious of my progress.
10. They’d never forget the little nice things I did for them, they’d give me shoulder to lean on when I seem weak.
11. They’d strive to keep the friendship alive.

These are the friends I wish I had… And of course, they are the friends I never had.

* I did not have imaginary friends.

Thanks for reading my post. Pls I will be happy to read your thoughts… Leave me a comment below.

Six People You Will Meet In A Bank

Hello beautiful people, and welcome to my little world!
This post is kind of refreshing and a sort of eye opener. You will find it revealing and at the same time entertaining… Enjoy!

SIX TYPES OF PEOPLE YOU MEET IN THE BANKING HALL

1 – The Pen Borrowers:
They are always in the bank, common pen they won’t have. These people are very dangerous, once you borrow them the pen, you may find it difficult to identify them. At a bank in Nigeria, once someone tells u “may I have your pen?” Believe me bros, that’s the last time you will see that pen (except if u’re lucky).

2 – The “I’m behind you” Team:
Immediately they enter the bank, even before taking the slip (withdrawalor deposit) all they do is to know the last person and you hear them saying, I’m at your back. If care is not taken, about 8 persons can tell you “I’m behind you” then at the end of the day, they cause confusion.

3 – The No protocol team:
This kind of people don’t obey the1st come, 1st served slogan! They’re mouthed in the bank! Immediately they come in, they just walk up to the cashier or manager, he asks them to sit down & within 5mins they’ve completed their transactions while you still dey there looking like mumu for queue.(Daris God oooo)

4 – The Bank Door rejectees:
These people will always have a problem with the bank door, then you see them removing their belts, car keys, mobile phones etc and yet d machine keeps shouting “pls go back” My bros next time come to the bank naked! Biko, LOL.

5 – The slip wasters:
These kind of people can waste slip for Nigeria! To fill the withdrawal slip or deposit slip na JAMB questions, you see them cancelling, tearing, squeezing & take another one. To write common 3780 Naira in words na gobe.

6 – The people from Another Planet:
These people usually behave like them no dey this world since 2 yrs! They will always b asking for today’s date, even after telling them d correct date, they will ask someone else again. I tire for this people o.

Please which number do you fall in the above? Share with your friends to know where they fall under…

If you ain't laughing then you've not been to a bank in Nigeria

ME: I’ve been a victim of no.1 too many times…they just disappear with the pen!.

No.2 people can be very annoying…especially on ATM queue. They will just announce “I’m behind you” and rush to sit somewhere or even go out of d premises. We wey stand under sun na leather them take sew our body?

Ehen… I find myself under no.6 most of the time! I go ask and still check my phone, LOL. I’m such a perfectionist!

Nigeria Declared Ebola Free – President’s Speech and Nigerians’ Reactions

Yesterday, Nigeria was declared Ebola free by the World Health Organization, (WHO). The declaration is an attestation to the Nigerian Can Do Spirit. It is also a clear demonstration of the many possibilities of our Nation. With us as a people, united under God, there is nothing we cannot achieve when we stand together behind an objective. Unity is the secret weapon Nigeria used against the Ebola Virus Disease and nothing shall be impossible for a united Nigeria. I congratulate and thank all Nigerians on this great feat. I want to also specially thank the governments and peoples of Lagos, Rivers and Enugu states, the first responders who treated the index cases. To all the thirty six state governors who united with the Federal Government to rid Nigeria of this scourge I also say a big thank you. Although we have been declared free of Ebola we must however, remain vigilant as the Ebola virus is still on rampage in neighboring Sister Countries. We cannot afford to let down our guard when there is still Ebola pain in our subregion. In this regard we will spare no resource in supporting our neighbors in the battle to contain this deadly scourge. May God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria. GEJ

Reactions by the Nigerian Citizens

“Mr President,u also need to be congratulated as the team leader in fighting the scourge but I believe if we can fight this deadly scourge and win then Mr President we can also fight Power outage,unemployment,kidnapping and other vices.U re trying your best and I think its high time we get the future of the country on the right pact.God bless Nigeria.”

My Relationship: Secrets Revealed

Hello and welcome to my little world!

Whenever I see couples fighting or having an argument, The first thing that comes in my mind is: I will never allow arguments to set in my relationship (especially when I get married), or will never think to start one, but arguments seem to come naturally.

We argue about who called each other last, or who used a wrong tense in a sentence during discussions, etc. Sometimes, more than that, but regardless of our reasons for the argument (or fight), patching up a troubled relationship and having a solution is very important.

Second to God, our partners are a believer’s most valuable asset. Companions provide a listening ear for our troubles, support for our dreams, and a safety net when we fall. They give us love, even when we are unlovable. They are, and must be our friends. Over the years, I have come to the understanding of what LOVE truly is, and the value of being in a relationship.

Though, sometimes we go through troubled periods and solutions were sought through the following steps:

NB: please note that these are tips that worked for me.

Address the problem.
Acknowledge to your partner that something is amiss and needs to be fixed.

Determine the problem.
Together, discuss where the relationship veered off-course and what wrongs may have been spoken or committed. Be honest and let your honesty be in its proper place. Remember, you are talking to your partner, another half of yourself. Yes!

Apologize.
As believers, we accept responsibility for our actions and seek forgiveness.

Refuse to blame.
In addition, you must avoid defending yourselves. There could be a temptation to argue over who did what; however, the goal is not proving who is right but saving the relationship.

Begin repairs.
Ask, “What can I do to rebuild our closeness?” The key here is to do willingly whatever is requested.

Commit to rebuilding.
Start investing your time, energy, and love in restoring the relationship.
In other to have the blessings of a good relationship with a partner who accepts and loves you, you must be willing to pay the high price of patching things up. Walking away might seem easier, but in the long run, you would lose a valuable treasure.

God bless you both.
Have a blessed day and enjoy the rest of the week!
Thank you so much for reading.

Now, it’s your turn to write!
What steps have you taken to restore your relationship/marriage back to life, or what steps keep you both happy ever after?

Sweet Memory Of A Loving Father

With tears in my eyes and the memory still fresh in my heart…I write this.

It’s exactly two years today since my Father passed on. I never thought I could live a day without him. I have realized that Death is a brief separation and a temporary pain. I always say to myself how lucky I was to have a father like him for almost 22 years in my life. I remember how he was taking care of his family (other people inclusive), always kind, and he had a simple nature of always being happy because of his jolly personality… Jolly-boy as he was fondly called by his friends.

Father, even though you’ve lost in this material world, your memories will always remain in our hearts forever. You’re now in the hands of God with peace. I know father, that someday we will see each other but the saddest part is until now, the pain you created sinks in me because I love you so much. Goodbye “father” but keep in your mind that my goodbyes are not forever; goodbyes are not the end – they simply mean I’ll miss you… until we meet again!!! God Bless.
Your Daughter, NK.

I hope you will realize the importance of a father in your life, so give all your love and respect until it is not too late. A father’s love lasts a lifetime.
