Monday Morning Blues

I was on my way to work yesterday when I decided to fish out my sunglasses from where they had been hidden in hiatus & make good use of them as the sun was shining quite brightly that morning. Sunglasses perched on my face and everything else in place, I kissed my man goodbye and headed to the bustop to catch the bus to work.

Some metres away from the bustop, I though I could see skin poking out from underneath a suit already standing at the bustop but thought to myself, "No, that cant be". Must be my sunglasses playing tricks on my mind cos I havent worn them in such a long while. Just to make sure, I removed my sunglasses from its precarious position on my face and proceeded to verify that I was actually seeing what I thought I was seeing.

Alas, my senses or is it my thoughts still told me I could see flesh jutting out from underneath a well dressed suit and so I proceeded to wipe out my camera phone & take some first hand evidence/pictures from a very, very safe distance to confirm that I wasnt seeing double. LOL!! The picture below was confirmation that I hadnt gone bonkers. LOL!!



After taking the picture from a safe distance, it confirmed exactly what I thought I was seeing. There was indeed flesh poking out from underneath the 'suit' at the bustop some metres away from me! Oh La La! At 8am on a Monday morning?!?!!? In my mind I was like, Chei! Wahala dey oh! LOL!!
My problem was now how to get closer and take a clearer picture of the 'scene' before my eyes and yet live to tell the tale. As you can see, the guy was extremely huge & intimidating and I would hate to think of what he would do to me if I was caught in the act and he noticed that I was clicking away, taking his picture. LOL!!
I pretended to be typing a text and moved closer to the bustop, pretending to be reading the bus times/schedule but yet clicking away at my handset with my heart in my mouth. If he moves closer, I'll run away in the opposite direction. I kept assuring myself. LOL!!

I wanted to turn round and look at him properly but my liver failed me. Supposing he said "What are you staring at?" with his eyeballs bulging out?!?!? What would I do? Where would I run to? I'm sure I would have pissed in my pants. LOL!! Before long, the bus came and he got on it. I contemplated getting on the same bus as him to take more pictures, curious at the same time where he could be heading to. Surely he wouldnt be heading to work?!?!?!?!!? In that state!??!?!? I decided to let him go on his way. I had my own day to look forward to afterall. LOL!!
What would be your reaction if your manager, supervisor, co-worker or even your employee came into the office on a Monday morning dressed like this?

  19. @Everyone: My first impression was that the guy had some nuts & bolts loose in his head. Why else would anyone step out of their home in that state? I dont think his faculties are in the right positions at all.

    Each time I look at his pics, I burst into nerver ending laughter. LOL!!

    ReplyDelete

  26. I was just wondering.........what if this dude is a blogger?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I would not be surprised if this man was not well (mental health problems). I often see patients like him.

    So maybe a little more understanding would go a long way

    ReplyDelete
  28. its ok for u to put up peoples pics on ur blog and choose not to show ur face. its an offence to circulate peoples pictures without their consent.
    and pls dont ridicule people with mental health issues its disciminating. this guy is human u know. hope i dont sound harsh but its necessary to consider other people. i love ur blog but you failed it here.

    ReplyDelete
  45. @Chief O: I have seen him several times areound my neighbour hood and he seems like a decent bloke. Something must have gone wrong that morning cos the times I've seen him, he's been extremely decent.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Calabar Gal, I saw this on the bus in Tottenham a few weeks ago!

    I remember because I recognise him from this blog post. He's even bigger and yes, he had the same coloured hair, too small shirt and jacket. His stomach was protuding everywhere. In fact, people made way for him on the bus and as for the kids (it was school run time), they held on to their mothers' skirts and one or two actually yelped in fright.

    This man is frightening to see live

    ReplyDelete
  47. @Christian Writer: It seems our friend has good days and bad days. There have been days he's been extremely decent and well dressed but yesterday, I just had to shake my head when I saw him. Same undersized shirt and trousers with his tummy hanging out. Made me wonder if they're his old clothes and he does not bother shopping for new ones, not realising that he's grown out of them. Oh well.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I saw this guy too in Tottenham last week. Same Old, Same Old. I couldnt help but marvel. He hasnt changed one bit.
