The Different Types Of Nigerian Co-workers On A Monday Morning

January 20, 2020

Every Monday morning brings along with it drama leftover from the weekend. In Nigerian offices, there are various personalities. The best time to observe this difference in behavior is on a Monday morning. Here are the various types of Nigerian co-workers you will observe at the start of a new week.

The can it be weekend again gang:

These set of people always want it to be Friday. All they do is grumble from Monday to Thursday, their happiest days are Fridays. Their sad days are from Monday to Thursday.

I had a lit weekend gang:

They always get up to the wildest things outside of work. It’s either they went for some party, wrestled exotic animals, or watched their landlord pick money from the ground and start to bark. Every Monday morning comes with a different interesting story about their rest days. They make the work more bearable for everyone.

The sleepy gang:

Their motto is “I had a long weekend”, “This weekend ehn”. They always need to sleep for only 15 minutes every Monday morning according to them. It is usually 15 minutes in ten places though.

Late to work with excuse gang:

Buhari was visiting Lagos that’s why I came late. My dog started speaking and hence I had to come late. Deep down, we all know they have ready-made excuses. They probably overslept after all the parte after parte they had over the weekend.

Let’s get to work gang:

You see them running from table to table, office to office screaming new week, new goals. Let’s take over the world. Pls dear, I don’t have ambition like that. Most times they are usually your boss or a superior. That’s why they have over ginger.

When is the next public holiday gang:

They will be doing their work and after small frustration, you’ll hear them ask loudly: “ahan, when is the next public holiday self?” A public holiday is the only time you see them smile.

The happy to be back at work gang:

You just know they don’t have friends outside of work. They most likely worked over the weekend and are just glad to see other people come to suffer work with them. Anytime you see them you keep asking “who is actually happy on a Monday morning?”

The indifferent gang:

They show no emotions. Public holiday, judgment day, bring your children to the office day. They are indifferent. You can’t even tell whether they hate or love the work.

I want to go home gang:

All they shout as they come into the office is that they can’t wait to go home. Their best friend is their bed and their favourite past time is sleep.
