THE HATER : I hate people who…

…stuff their handbags with so many things. This goes to the so called contemporary stylish ladies who are known to carry very big handbags. I don’t know where this style came from but I am sure it is creating problems.

…stuff their handbags with so many things.

This goes to the so called contemporary stylish ladies who are known to carry very big handbags. I don’t know where this style came from but I am sure it is creating problems.

Ladies are known to have bags full of so many accessories, hardware and even software! All sorts of cosmetics, shoes, eats, diaries, wallets and of course phones are carried in these bags. When the phone rings for instance, the owner of the bag will spend about 30 minutes trying to get the phone out of the bag and by this time the caller has already given up. 

      …enter a restaurant and then stare at other people’s plates.

Whenever I enter a restaurant for lunch or dinner, my appetite is put to a test by uncultured folks who have this disgusting habit of staring at my plate.

Do these people know of a document called a menu? Why on earth do they have to look at what I am eating when asked by the waitress to make their orders? Does this mean that in case they found no one eating in the restaurant then they would not eat anything?

If you are not sure of what you intend to eat I suggest you take a stroll as your appetite gathers or simply ask for the menu. My plate is not your source of reference. 

…do not wait to reach start undressing.

I have noticed this habit mainly among the working class men around Kigali. In the morning the fellow dresses up so smartly and leaves for office. But as soon as it clocks time for going back home, this part time thinker will remove his tie and put it in the pocket or in his laptop bag. He will even go ahead and undo the neatly tucked shirt and let it hang out.

Some even undo some of the buttons effectively turning from corporate fellows to very shabby city dwellers. If the intention was to impress your boss then what will happen if you meet in a public taxi after work? If you do not enjoy being smart, then there is no reason to pretend about it in the first place.  

…do not expose their children to white people.

I really don’t see anything funny about your child running after a stranger shouting Muzungu muzungu! To me it is simply a sign that your child is not exposed at all. White people are always on TV and in books as well as on our streets.

Why then should your child go around making a nuisance of himself simply because a white tourist is walking along the street? How come they never go around shouting Muhindi muhindi when they see an Indian or South Asian? I fail to see the pride in having a very ignorant son or daughter. 
        
…give lousy reasons for not attending events.

I told you last week of how I love attending parties. Well in the same spirit I need to let out my anger on those people who when invited, fail to show up and then come up with very amateur lies and excuses.

A lady recently told me that she failed to attend a friend’s wedding because she had no dress! I was about to ask her whether she was naked on that day but then again I was also considering offering her a heavy wake-up type of slap.

Some even claim that they thought Saturday was actually Friday. What crap is this? How could you think it was Friday yet you were not in office?!
