You guys are not going to like this.
I didnt like it too when i heard. God! I feel devastated!! I can only imagine how he will be feeling right now. I cant wait to go home and console him.
I just heard the news from my MUM. Funny i had to hear it from her considering the fact that she is not even in town. Its not surprising though, mumsy loves to check up on her kids every two two mins anytime she is away from home.
No too much tory. Will just take y'all through the conversation.
Me: "Hello Mum"
Mum: "Nne how are you"
Me: "Am fine"
Mum: "Have you been to the hospital yet?"(Last nite when she called, i had told her i wasnt feeling too well and would be going to the hospital this morning)
Me: "Yes i went this morning. Will be going back later in the day to get the tests results"
Mum: "Okay....Have you spoken to Uzee?"
Me:(wondering why i had to speak with someone i saw this morning at home) "No, i havnt. What happened?"
Mum: "I just called him now and he told me he has just been sacked"
Me: "What!, My God!! It cant be true"
Mum: "It is o! He told me he was in the office packing his things. They sacked the two of them, he and the woman"
Me: "Ah! This is not fair! Its not fair at all"
Mum: "Its not fair! Now he has to suffer for helping her. That woman is a witch, If i was in Lagos now i would have gone straight to their office and dealt with her. I will make sure i tear her clothes....."
(When it comes to her own, my mum can do anything o! I dont doubt that she would do what she just said)
Me: "God will pay her back, she will definitely suffer for making the poor boy lose his job"
Mum: "Yes she will, Poor Uzee! To lose his job this way!! Just when he was expecting his confirmation letter!!! Abeg call am now and console him o!"
Me: "I am going to call him rightaway, Dont worry"
So that's the situation now. My brother has just lost his job. He loved that job sooo much. For as long as i can remember, his one dream has always been to become a banker, not like me whose career aspirations always changed with the weather.
How happy we were when he got the job at the bank cos everyone knew it was what he wanted to do. Now barely one year into his dream job, he has lose it because of that conscienceless woman. God punish her!
I mean, did she have to drag him down with her?!?!
Even when she knew she was leaving, she still had a chance to set things right for him but she didnt. Probably she didn't want to be remembered as a LIAR.
I know am ranting but God knows i feel like i could kill her right now.
Thanks to every one who prayed for my brother. Ur prayers werent in vain. Am sure God knows best. He has something better in store for him, its only a matter of time.
I have to go now. I have an appointment with the doctor.
How do i even begin to thank everyone. I read your comments and some how my spirit was lifted. It feels so great to have people around you who care. Am so glad for y'all my blog family.
When i got up from bed this morning. Guess what i did? I went to my brother's room to check if he was there. I was hoping every thing was just a bad dream and i would get there to find that he had already left for work. I knocked. No response. I was about to start thanking God when i heard-Sis, is that you?
My heart broke once again and i walked away after replying that i was just checking up on him.
As at when i left the house he was still in his night clothes. It all felt wrong! I mean usually he left the house even before i woke up(yes o! i sabi sleep well well) and now here i am leaving for work and he was still at home with no plan for work.
Anyway, he is planning to appeal to the bank board(he says one of his bosses advised him to do this) to allow him resign formally instead of being terminated. This will help him get a job in some other bank @ an even higher level. Otherwise, if not he will have to start from the scratch again as an entry level employee. Some good peeps have already volunteered to help him get another job once the bank grants his appeal. '36' has also offered to help, Thank you dear.
For now, lets keep our fingers crossed and hope they grant the appeal. Dont forget to put him in ur prayers too.
p.s: My health is better now, thanks for the concern.
