I hate Mondays. I hate waking up on Monday, getting ready for work, getting to work, having to do Friday’s left over work, checking out everything and mostly, I hate having to do the stressful Monday site checks. I’m not a lazy girl, I just prefer doing my job in comfortable places when its most convenient.
This Monday, I was bored. Yes, bored. Is that possible? Yes. My boss just went on leave and I was pulling my weight by sending the others to site with a stern warning to report everything to me. I was just beginning to get comfortable when I heard the fire alarm. I ran outside, everybody was there already then the Safety manager came and gave one speech about how they were checking/testing some fittings and we can go back to our offices. I hissed………………….almost everybody did.
I got back to my office and continued the scrabble game I was playing………………….I must win this one. I heard somebody shouting outside. I stood up to check it out but changed my mind and sat back down, maybe it’s just another person testing his voice. Dare opened my office door and peeked in (I take knocking seriously and I was about giving Dare another lecture on office etiquette)
“Lola, you still dey here?”
“Where I for dey?”
“You never hear?”
“the false alarm?”
He closed my door and left. Yeah, I have a thing for “aproko” and Dare is my feed. When he starts acting funny like this, it means he wants me to find out. I followed him. Everybody was gathered at the reception……………..starring at the screen of the TV. I couldn’t see past their heads so I just tapped one of my colleagues.
“boko haram just bombed Aso rock”
