Women together!

My people na wah, me self, i don dey wonder, Why is it that women can never pull together and help each other? Why are we always envious? constantly on each other's case? ehn? You remember my friend Catherine? wey dey work for parliament? na so she give me one kian gist wey vex me well well! Okay, so there are three friends that are politically inclined. Anita, Catherine and Evelyn. Anita used to work for the parliament, but she got a better job in Brussels, hence her position became open and lots of other positions since a lot of people were moving over to Brussels. She promptly informed her friends, Catherine(my friend) and Evelyn. Catherine was immediately interested and said she will apply for it, Evelyn said she was not interested in that particular job and would apply for another job, also, within the parliament. Anyway, I was there the day this preliminary planning was going on, and I was so impressed, they were all so ambitious and willing to help each other out, na so, i dey hail them all night long, dey buy drinks to toast them! if say I know,infact, i want my drinks back! Nonsense! Anyway, na so oh, Catherine applied and got the job, meanwhile Evelyn disappeared all of a sudden, stopped answering calls, msn, sms, etc. Na so oh, only for Catherine to find out that baby girl applied for that same job but did not get it. She did not inform Catherine about it, anyway, she got another job within the parliament, so now they are both working there but are not on speaking terms because of this issue. Imagine! Why? Instead of helping each other, they are misbehaving. They could have been having so much fun, instead, they are busy spreading gist about each other! I say, I want my money back! Nonsense!

so is evelyn jealous at catherine? or is catherine also mad at evelyn for applying for the same job. i need to clarify this gist before i can comment.

LittleGirlLost said...

Competition is a natural human condition but she didnt have to be so underhand? Would it have hurt to say she thinks she's also apply for the Job and may the best girl win? Silly Girl.

Can anyone ever tell for sure why we women can't get along?

But when we join our hands together we are a formidable force that can't be stopped.

Why didn't Evelyn tell her galfriends she wanted to apply for job too,have her friends given her bad"vibes" before?

Why do we feel the constant need to out do each other?

Now,they are spreading news about themselves? What is wrong?

Waffarian said...

Evelyn is mad at Catherine for some strange reason. Catherine was surprised but happy when she heard that Evelyn was working there, cos she had sort of disappeared during the "interview" period, it is Evelyn that does not want to have anything to do with Catherine.

Waffarian said...

@littlegirllost, oh girl, it would not have mattered, cos Anita told all her friends and a lot of girls applied.
@diary of a mad soul sista, heheheheheheh, I might take it away though!
@confusednaijagirl, don't mind me, I was in a bad mood and then I saw a comment left by another blogger that irritated me seriously, i no dey like negativity men..... that's why, but I might remove it, don't know.

Waffarian said...

@omohemi benson, yeah, I was seriously disappointed!

women are vicious animals by nature and it embarasses me at times to imagine the things we get up to just to spite the other female in the equation.

The truth is that we are all guilty of that vice, but we can become better people and be genuinely happy for each other.

Take for instance the silly little girls that get on people's blog and get all stupid and ignorant.
I enjoy your blog, liked the piece to your dad, he's in a better place, you just make him proud in all your endeavours, trust me he's watching.

ijeoma obu iheoma said...

hmmm.. honestly i dont think its a female thing. when my ex was applying for a job at the Nigerian embassy, he went behind his friends back to do it. His friend had been interested in the job, and actually asked my ex to assist him with his resume. long story short, my ex got the job.. and his friend didnt. na so the friend vex.. and till today, them no dey talk..jealousy na human thing..

Nneka's World said...

That's we girls for you

chidi said...

y did d evelyn gal do that? If it was me, i would be angry that i offered to help someone, the person refuses my help, then goes behind my back to do the same thing that he/she refused help for. Its sad. But if it was me, really, i would talk & talk non-stop about the person

racquelle-cutie said...

the thing killing us girls is envy and 2 much competition btwn 1 another why can't we just be happy 4 1 another and unite in sisterhood

Nyemoni said...

Hehehehe... it is so with women... we were created with an envious bone methinks.. But why can't they just move on? Eve applied after saying she wasn't interested and then...? Abeg tell them that you demand a refund kiakia! I demand it on your behalf!

SOLOMONSYDELLE said...

You most definitely should get your kudi back. haba! Anyway, you sure say something else didn't go down? Seems rather petty that they would fight over aposition, after all they are both working, shebi?

@ Idemili: LOL!!!! You too should get your money back from waffy!

UnNaked Soul said...

I mean, men are crazy, but women, they never get along (more that half the time is always)... I've seen it, and I know it from experience... Wasting so much energy...

imagine two pallies dey ment for inside parliament... lol

oya make una refund her drink sharp sharp or the cash eqiv. lol

law_damsel said...

Haba get ur money back jo, so u can use it 2 buy banga ingredients 4 me.. Well its human nature 2 b insatiable however girls are more susceptible to such devious characters..its such a pity sha

Simply Gorgeous said...

Women are always women. We are multi-faceted. But also have bad points also like back- biting and being crude and hurtful.

Jola Naibi said...

We women sha...but then this one is even mild compared to some other stories like women who will advise their friends to pack out of their husband's house because he is misbehaving - only for the friend to move in with her 'friend's' misbehaving husband. This one is not even 'dem say' I have seen it with my own korokoro eye. I guess like in all things we should be careful with those people that we call our 'friends' there is a lesson to be learned in this...thanks for sharing

Yetunde said...

Na so women be...I don't think that will ever change...women palava na something else, but won't this world be a better place if we all can just work together without having hidden thoughts inside or being jealous and all that, so sad!

hold on...does this same Waffarian chat for one nigerian site?

ijeoma obu iheoma said...

update nah!

Sparkle said...

KAI, I still dey wait for my answer o...na d waffarian for one nigerian chat room be dis?

Abeg update dis blog!

Waffarian said...

Yetunde, Sparkle, abeg ohhhhhhhhh, make una no dey spread rumor for here! ahahahahahah No, I don't do Nigerian chat rooms, I am a member of "Nigerian village square" I was a bit active there about two years ago, but since then, I just have my blog! Sorry to disappoint una!

Bluntremi said...

Wow, I can’t say that I am surprised by their actions. It’s the way people are. And men are not excluded, far from it! Some times its even worse with them…they are just very good at not expressing their feelings, while women will tell their husbands/spouses everyone about something immaterial.

I have always felt it stems from insecurity. Not realizing that just because you didn’t get a job/girl/car/shoes/bag/whatever…why hate the next person?? Why not be happy for them and work harder for yours? I have sat in the waiting rooms with people waiting to be interviewed. I always wish them well… if I don’t get the job it wasn’t meant to be – pure and simple!! I know some people will say otherwise…


Great post!!

Yetunde/Sparkle said...

ok, guess I got d wrong person...but it won't stop me from reading dis blog:D

SouLBoutiQue said...

It's the nature of females to not like one another, esp. if one female is not secure with herself, Maybe there is some underlying code of Darwinism hidden somewhere...The girl should have just honestly said she was interested in the job offer as well. Na so, nigerians dey do sha...sneaky, sneaky, its too much!....And get una money back Ooo! lol...love the blog.

Moments said...

Women wahala!!! I don't even think that's anything to stressabout. They should just ignore the whole thing and move on jo! what is that now?? which kind fight is that one?? Unless there's something there they ain't sharing sha!

ijeoma obu iheoma said...

nature of women? i dont know about that oh.. there are some women out there that genuinely care about the prosperity of all thier friends, and actually drive thier friends to be ambitious. as fineboy rightly said.. men do it too.. maybe its just about the individual and thier state of insecurity rather than a woman problem?
