Crazy guy gist & DA FUN-SHOP

I was tired. My head was aching from the stress of the day. The last thing I needed was some crazy guy causing unnecessary traffic by parking his car right in the middle of the narrow road.

I stretched my neck out of the car window to see properly what was going on. That same instant, a shirt came flying towards my car. It was the crazy guy, yea it turned out I was right in tagging him ‘crazy’! He had removed his shirt,flung it aside and was punching someone in the front passenger seat.

The car in front of me started moving, the driver was trying to squeeze through the narrow space beside Mr. Crazy’s car. I followed suit.

As I passed the silver Golf car, I deliberately slowed down to take in the situation. The crazy guy was still leaning into his car, his trouser had shifted downwards to reveal a traumatising half view of his bare black arse.

Seriously now…guys, this question is for you…why o...why will you put on your trousers without wearing something underneath? No boxers…No briefs…Why now? And then you will be causing bad luck for peeps by exposing the arse all around town?

Hmmm…LOL!!!

So, from where I was, I could see that Mr Crazy was punching hard blows into the face of this young lady who flayed her arms in front of her in an unsuccessful attempt to shield her face from the blows.

I looked around me, people were watching the scene with a lot of interest but no one was making any move to stop this craziness from going on! I almost screamed out to guy to stop hitting her but then I caught a glimpse of his face before I did. He had this evil maniacal look on his face. At that point I wasn’t even sure of this guy was not mentally deranged or something. He was screaming expletives which I couldn’t hear from where I was. The girl was screaming too.

The impatient honk of the car behind me made me realize I was causing my own mini-hold up on my side of the road so I moved ahead reluctantly. The scene was upsetting, whatever had transpired between the both of them, I didn’t feel the girl deserved to be handled that way.

I moved some metres ahead while still watching what was going on through my rear mirror. I saw that the guy had gotten back into the car and was now driving towards me so I stopped my car and waited for him to drive past. He drove past with such reckless speed that he nearly brushed the side of my car. This guy was definitely bunkers, I thought to myself as I kicked my engine and followed behind him.

Now, this guy drove like a possessed man, swerving and making suicidal turns that I feared that he would crash into someone/something. i couldnt keep a close tail on him because of his crazy driving but I maintained a fair distance. 

Why was I even following them? I asked myself but I couldn’t answer. I swear, It wasn’t my natural ‘gbeborun’ instincts at work. I just felt a need to make sure that the girl was safe. I didn’t have a plan yet but my mind was working fast. There was a police check point at the junction ahead of us and I knew he would definitely slow down when he got there. The traffic at that point was a given.

Maybe I could report to the police men at the junction. They could arrest the guy for Violence or whatever…

We got to the junction  and the Golf car slowed down, I drove into the next lane beside the golf as I frantically looked around for the police guys. They weren’t there! I turned to look into the car, he was shouting at the girl, I think she said something and then "Gbosaaa!" a slap and another one…na wa o…this guy wasn’t letting up….WHERE ARE THE POLICE WHEN YOU NEED THEM?!!!!

As the traffic warden motioned for us to move on, I made a detour back the way I came. I didnt know what to do and it was pointless following them to God knows where. And okay I admit, I was tired from the day’s hassles and I didn’t need any more.

But I drove back home with a heavy heart. That evening, I wouldnt have minded being a man(a macho one at that), that way, I would have taken that coward on and taught him the lesson of his life.

I was also depressed with the reality of the society we live in. A society where no one will lift a finger to help another person in need. People will rather look on, shake their heads in pity and move on, and oh... they will definitely take in the details of the incident well enough to recount it to another person, but help? No way!

It’s a sad sad situation.

Ialso couldnt help wondering what the girl could have done to deserve such a severe beating. 

Did she sleep with his best friend? or maybe Spit in his mother's face?

What heinous crime did she commit to deserve that beating?

Is the guy’s action even justifiable?

Why didn’t she even jump out of the car? I would, if it was me o…but not before aiming one of my fingers straight into the crazy coward’s eyes.

*devilish grin* ;)

Meanwhile lots of you have been asking what I have been up to. Sorry, I went AWOL the way I did. make una no vex o...I have missed you all and will try to catch up on your blogs when I can.

The Flier below explains it all. Your girl has been busy setting up a business. If you live in Festac and environs, Da Fun-shop…your number one store for children educational books/toys/games is here to bring constructive excitement to your kids!

Don’t fail to stop by, we’ll be glad to have you! For those who can't drop in because of distance, tell a friend about the store okay. Thanks.

Cheers!

...and I designed these fliers myself o...not bad abi?

if he's not ur father, he has no right to be beating u - even if he's my father sef, there's the unspoken arrangement, no more whozzing after 21, lol


the fliers look nice, madam businesswoman! I'm proud of you!!!

fantasy queen said...

congrats on the shop....maybe i'll stop by some day.

i know what you're talking about. we all mind our business, we drive past and look at situations wondering what happened, but not wanting to get ourselves involved.

who knows the lady might not have done anything as scandalous as u imagine...

This is a free golf driving tip that I have used myself with great effect.
Like a lot of golf tips, it's simple, logical, and common sense, but let's face it, golf has an amazing ability to make us throw those things out of the window - that's why this tip was so helpful for me.

I don't understand why the woman didn't get out of the car. The whole thing reminded me of one babe in my university who let her boy friend (bf o!) beat her publicly all in the name of he loves me too much thats y he gets jealous.

I also don't understand why Nigerian's have formed that habit of looking and saying "eeyah" and the like and thats it. very sad. Then again if monkey no one leave e mama waitin man go do.

Olufunke said...

Na wa o, I just pity the girl , I wonder what she did to justify that

Its saddening to know the kind of society we live in, everyone go just mind their business, the guy even had the effrontery to stop, cause a mini traffic and punch a lady in his car! Oh my God!

What can we say
Congrats on your new shop, may it be all and much more than you planned it to be!
the fliers fine, you try

Kabi-Osi Edumare said...

Another Entrepreneur in the house..Yes Boss!!!.

Look the Flyers...Good luck mami!!!

Woomie O! said...

maybe the girl stole or was carrying an unwanted preganancy or somethin...but that doesn't explain the beating. you should have done more...but this is Lagos so i understand your fears

rayo said...

brute oshi. whatever d girl myt have done, his violence cant be excused!

omoh said...

babe i just love the way u flow

u too like gist and gbeborun abeg

ok im officially a fan i wont say am in love before some people think i am a lesbo

anyways i dont know what to think of those women batterers i mean a lot oft hem should have learnt from their childhood experience or things they heard as kids......

ull find that most of these guys mothers were beaten by their men and ull think they should be more empathetic right? wrong!

anyways babes wetin u wan do go put ur mouth so they beat u blue black too

its a shame tho........there r plenty women like that dying in private , i dont know how hard it is dat u cant leave someone that batters u

i mean to hell with our mothers' generation saying they couldnt leave for the sake of the kids
i wouldve rather my mom left my dad than endure what she did......

as for the young girls i dunno wot their excuse for staying is


thats my 2 cents

Lindah said...

Uzezi said...

things happen everyday around us, and just surprises us. such guys in the society. one can imagine what he does to her in private then. and such girls, who will sit and take such treatment, no matter what their offences are
