DON'T TAKE IT PERSONAL!

Many times, I have heard these words; 'Don't take it personal!'. 'Keep it professional!' And I have wondered how? When you are working with humans and not robots? Yet, they say be 'passionate and committed to your job'! Again, I ask, 'how can you do that if you don't give  your all? To explain my point clearly, lemme gist you what went down in my place of work.

I started a new job 4 months back and was working with my night manager. Unknown to me she and the day manager had an 'ish' going on and I was caught in the middle ... a tale of 2 elephants fighting and the grass suffering for it! No matter how hard we worked, no good feed back! When we handover our reports in the morning, her written comment to our GM was not encouraging at o! From a scale of 1-10, it was like 2! Yeahh, it was that bad!


Did I like her? NOPE! From day one of she walking through the door on my first night, there was anger all over her and she was so cold ... that the smile froze on my face when I wanted to say hello. She barely gave me a glance ... she no care who dey there! Having gained experience from my former place of work, I too boned her and faced my lane. For a week, I never said a word to her! She was the one that started greeting me ... I replied if I like ... but I made sure I don't ever greet her first! Since, I am the type that wear my heart on my sleeve, no matter how hard I try to hide it, she knew I was pissed off with her!


SO! As I was saying, I didn't know what was going down between both of them, but I was not happy with her feedback because it will reflect on my appraisal! Is my own night manager without her flaws? NAYYY! She get her own for body as every human being including me ... but she is a drama queen with a capital D! She is nice but manipulative! When I knew it had nothing to do with the way I work, but, just sheer vindictiveness on the part of the day manager, I tried hard not to let it get to me and continued to do my best, which the GM noticed and appreciated, but officially, we were not doing good enough! 


Then, the night manager allowed herself to fall into the trap of the day manager! She started dating a co-worker which was against the company's policy! Of course, her foe heard, called GM, who in turn called our oga at the top, with immediate alacrity, she and her lover were transferred to different branches! I only came back from my 2 days off and met a new night manager, who is a friend to the day manager ... and yep, our report became very favourable ... from a scale of 1-10 ... we got 8! How? Are we doing anything different? NOO! It was purely 'bad-belly tinz!' 


And people say, it is nothing personal? We should be professional? Have I come to like the day manager? TAAA! Her personality is vile! This much a GM from another branch complained about! Can you believe my own GM didn't like my night manager and was happy she had left? And, am I glad she had gone? Sincerely yes! Why? Simply because there is no more tension in the office! And I don't have to be at the receiving end!  JEZZZ! Sometimes I was tempted to knock their heads together! 


The blunt truth is that personal emotions cannot be separated from professionalism, because humans are social beings! Yes! I know in the legal and medical field is is strongly advised not to let that happen but s*** happens all the time!


Happy celebrations to all Muslims. Barka de sallah.

TITHING!

YES! YES! Scurry away as you read the title because it is a sensitive matter and you don't want to be caught sinning, right? I understand,I was in that position before, because of the teachings of the church. But like Paul said,'when we were children, we thought like one ...' As babies in Christendom, we believed and followed everything our 'adults' said and did until we 'grew up' and realized somethings ain't just right!

The bible recorded that Abraham paid his tithe from *the spoils of war* when he met the priest on his way home. The good book explained that tithes were paid once in every 3 years into the temple of GOD, to help the priests who were not given lands, orphans, widows, the fatherless and the poor. 

Thousands of years ago, a DIVINE being made  ALL believers, priests through His sacrifice and our body is now a temple, where the HOLY SPIRIT dwells. Hence, no more 'Levities to help us present our requests before our creator and tithes don't have to be paid inside a building! 'The poor will always be amongst you' Christ said, so they still need help. Giving your tithe to charity, orphanages, widows, fatherless, or anyone you see that is poor, is still fulfilling the scripture of tithing.

And, NO! Student allowance is NOT for tithing!
And, NO! House-keeping allowance is NOT tithing!
And,NO! Monetary gifts is NOT for tithing!
And, NO! Business capital is NOT for tithing!
And, NO! Fraudulent money is NOT for tithing!

Our harvest, which is now our income we earned, since we are  all NO longer farmers, cloth weavers, cattle rearers, wine-makers and fishermen, is which, to be tithed. You don't earn an income or don't make profits from your business, you DO NOT TITHE!
Shalom.

CAN WE EVER GET TIRED OF THIS TOPIC?

HOWDY! Like play, like joke, June is here! Half of the year already! We thank GOD for HIS grace to see it. OKAY! What I want to bare my mind on today, is on the FB post about men cheating and my first cousin who happens to be a pastor agreed that all men cheat! SHIOR! I opened my mouth when I read his comment ... even you pastor? 😁 YEAH! I know it is an overflogged issue but it always gets people attention when infidelity matter is brought up. And from the comments, you will know the women who are yet to be in the institution! E dey sweet for mouth to advise wives, enter first, then come back later to tell us if you adhered to your own words!

It is always the men that scream blue murder when they are cheated upon because they say women cheat with their hearts in it, while theirs is purely physical! I hear! Why then abandon your family for your mistress? Or Neglect your responsibilities at home to satisfy your concubine needs huh? Men also say cheating women might end up giving them pregnancies that are not theirs, but you men also have love-children outside your matrimonial home! 

All the same, none cheat with themselves! It takes two to tango! The men cheat with women, and women do same with men. SO! Who is really cheating on who, since, It is a merry go round? And again, cheating is as old as as the earth. Yet! We never get tired of talking about it! Why? Apart from the pain of betrayal, history has taught us it can change the course of a whole nation/human race! SIGH!
