…wear jackets during this hot weather. Some people are simply weird to say the least. The other day as I squeezed myself into those commuter taxis that they call Nyakatsi. There was a fellow who obviously had not travelled with his brain.
Ignoring the scorching sun, this guy was wearing a jacket and sweating profusely. I wondered whether he was trying to save money by not just going to the sauna or that he was slowly committing suicide. Wearing a jacket under the hot sun leaves me no option but to hate you, and, that includes folks wearing suits yet they do not have air-conditioned offices or cars.
…randomly start preaching in a commuter taxi. The fact that Wednesday is not Sunday is very clear on every calendar. Now imagine starting your day on a very bad note; to sit in a taxi and two minutes later one of the passengers transforms into a mobile pastor yelling on top of her voice about how Jesus loves all of us and wants us to repent. Since I am not about to repent for hating such people, I opted to get out of the taxi and board another one. Just like I was sure it was Wednesday and not Sunday, I also knew for a fact that I had boarded a taxi not a mobile church. To that overzealous lady, I say thank you for your unsolicited prayers that have earned you a slot on this page.
…collect brochures like it is an Olympic sport. I was at the Expo in Gikondo and I still don’t know how I restrained myself from slapping this joker who was walking from one stall to another collecting brochures. Yes, I know the different exhibitors offer them to anyone interested but this idler looked like he was at the buffet table trying to have a bit of everything. I wondered how on earth he could be interested in almost everything from vegetable cutters to heavy Agricultural machinery. Maybe, he was looking for material to read or simply to use for lighting a charcoal stove. Either way, I think he deserved to be on this page for exhibiting his cheap idleness.
…walk around with loud-heeled shoes in a quiet environment. I used to think that this was limited to just a few insecure women interested in drawing attention to their sorry state of beauty, but men are also taking on this practice. It is just so annoying for someone to walk around with shoes making that clip clop sound that makes you wonder whether the Big Ben clock is hidden in their shoes. Some fools even have the guts to irritate us this way in very quiet environments like libraries and churches. I wonder who sells such shoes to brainless buyers that terrorise us each day.
…continue doing annoying things that I have always complained about. I don’t know how many times I have complained about Mark Zuckerberg’s obsession of making unsolicited changes on Facebook. I have always tried to resist the changes where possible. Now as if to show me who is the boss, I was told that soon I will have the timeline imposed on me whether I like it or not. I think this will also be my last time to just hate. I will be hoping that I bump into Zuckerberg (not sure where) and threaten him to stop making changes or I start a hunger strike. The way this young man keeps changing the appearance of Facebook tempts me to think he is an adviser to those African leaders who change their constitutions to rule for life.
