January 28, 2016
Sometimes, you may not be in the best moods to entertain visitors. To make matters worse, they come and start misbehaving. You are just there praying to God to hold your mouth and hands. If you have ever been in this situation you will understand these.

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.

4. When they start making food demands like asking for pounded yam

Because this is your family restaurant?

You are such an unfortunate fellow but you won’t hear it from my mouth.

6. When a guest changes the DSTV channel to Africa Magic Yoruba

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

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

9. And they expect you to cater to their needs and entertain them

What do you think I look like?

10. When a visitor says”can I have that drink you gave me the other time”

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.
