January 28, 2016

1. When someone comes visiting with a travelling bag

Hello, excuse me what’s all this? Visit not vacation!

2. When they come and start asking for the most random things

It seems something is wrong with you today.

3. “Why didn’t you arrange your house”

Is it your house? Is it your arrange? Leave me please.

Are you okay at all? On my own money for subscription.

Oshey minister of scolding, carry your wahala and go. Oversabi.

Ths one wants to turn me to bar man. Can you please not.

11. When a guest boldly says “won’t you turn on the gen?”

As costly as fuel is? Not today Satan.

12. When guests start thinking being a guest = special rights

So you want me to serve you and clear the plates and wash them? Please use your brain.

13. When guests begin to feel too comfortable and at home

Excuse me sir, I pay the rent here.

14. Or someone starts heading to your fridge or cupboard

Where do you think you are going?

15. When a guest starts invading your room and closet

Heyss don’t be stupid my friend respect yourself.

If you don’t get out from here before I open my eyes.
