i got promoted effective 1st jan 2009......now i had always known it was inevitable tht as soon as i get tht promotion i become head of my unit the same unit tht is termed"problem unit" technically u become head of problems, i who was so used being supervised has now become the supervisor.....and wht did i expect...to whom much is given...much is expected.....frankly my branch can not afford the salaries aS ABOUT 6 PPLE GOT PROMOTED at the same time...i had always thot tht before tht time came i would have left the company or somthing but it seems tht the more i tried to leave the stickier the "superglue" they must have used to tie me down becomes...so much so i begin to think to myself..."abi won ri ibi mi sibi ni""....now bumight take tht...translate....!before u start luking for yoruba dictionary i'll tell u..."did they bury my placenta there?" ...

in two weeks i begin my sojourn in "problem",,,,as in literally.....this sojourn has taken some to panti,led some to be disgraced by pple not even old enuff to be their first daughters(remember baba ondo), it has also led some into the beds of their superiors...all in the name of looking for favours....in d same vein...i wonder , wht sort of head of problems will i be?...i know i'll be overseeing at least 3 pple....who are in their own rights...heads of their own "problems",even though they man the seat all alone.....I cant help but think this is the time to be closer to God...and shed some of my goofy...,lay-abt attitude(I too cAN BE SERIOUS O),,,,but wait o...i cant afford to loose tht my goofy edge cos thts wht keeps the work going and keeps u on top of the job and not the other way round. I would like to think the 5 years tht i worked as surbodinates to about 5 or more different head of problems should have prepared me for the daunting task ahead...but if i know anything for sure.....5 things
I would not be the sort of H.O.P(head of problems) 1. that would become so scary to her surbodinates tht coming to work each morning would be like going to fACE A FIRING SQUAD.....I.E MY 2ND TO THE LAST H.O.P
2.I DEFINITELY WOULD BE THE SORT THT WOULD WELCOME..useful...and i mean only useful sugestions from her surbodinates.
3. the sort to teach and be a mentor to them
4. not allow the problems overweigh me to the extent tht the "desk" no longer has a human face.
5. tht would not be able to shield/protect my surbodinates and act as their voltron if need be when the higher authorities are abt to strike...i.e awon iya...and i mean awon iya osoronga.....right at the toppest top.

so eyin guys...wish me luck.....but trust ur girl...my c.v has started flying places....i gotta get outta here!aaarrggh.....won ri ibi mi mo bi ni...5yrs!

Lol@ won ri ibi mi mobi mi

I don't think so.
I guess the company loves the job you do. You should pray about this before taking a final decision.

bumight said...

of course i know what the translation is! dont try me o. A1 yoruba like me! it means " is my placenta buried here?" cos of the yoruba belief that you're spiritually linked to ur placenta.
