…forget that they have a job to do for which they will be paid.
I really did not have these guys on my hate list initially, but I have no choice. I was told that some wires got burnt near the small house I call a home.
I was also told that it is the duty of Electrogaz people to come and fix this problem so that electricity can continue flowing to people’s homes and businesses.
I found myself without power to write this column and I had to migrate to another part of Kigali that had power. Can you imagine?
These people put my income, my job, my hate campaign and the beauty of this paper on the line! No one messes with The Hater!
…wear several rings on their fingers.
The funny thing is that most of these fellows are not married. They think it so cool to have all that stainless steel on their fingers just because some semi-educated American rapper also wears such.
A ring on the finger is meant to signify commitment to a person either as an engagement or a marriage. Now I wonder what a fellow with oversized jeans and four rings on one hand is trying to tell us.
Are you trying to let us know that you have failed to decide which of the four high school girlfriends will have your children? Get a life!
…spend a lot of time checking out things that are on sale without buying.
If you are sure you do not have enough money to make a purchase, don’t pretend to do so. It is very unfair for you to raise the hopes of a seller by fitting your sorry body in all the clothes you can get hold of.
Others have this weak trick of asking for things that are not even in the shop. When a blue shirt is brought, they will ask for a maroon one with buttons at the back! Why don’t you just ask to be shown the door so you can go home or go to work so that next time you can afford the items you are trying on?
…refuse to take the back seats in a commuter taxi.
I think I see these people on a daily basis. And this is the only reason I do not bother them because it would result in free subscription to daily pounding headaches.
They peep into the taxi and then decide not to enter preferring to sit so close to the door. Some even enter and put half of their sitting facilities on a seat and beckon others to continue to the back while blocking the passage.
Since no one sleeps in a taxi, if you really didn’t want to sit at the back, why didn’t you buy your own car, take a motorcycle or walk yourself home?
…do not respect other people’s premises.
This being a rainy season, some people walk through muddy areas and accumulate a lot of dirt on their footwear. Now you may find such a person comfortably strolling into a clean home or office with mud all over their shoes.
Why not clean your shoes before entering someone’s place. Do you simply want to be remembered for having entered a place and leaving kilogrammes of mud on someone’s carpet or floor? Do you think this is a type of modern farming where you bring soil into buildings and homes?
