…impress me

How far, are you going for lunch? No. You? Not necessarily, but, want to take a stroll down the road. “not necessarily”, yeah right, as if you eat at all. In that case, rather than send the office assistant help me cash this cheque. Oh! That means I will have to ensure my walk gets that far, no probs sha. …just that personally I don’t like the ambiance of that bank, moreover, their wahala of confirmation of cheques is pretty inefficient.

 

Oops, no queue……gracias. Good aftern’n. Good afternoon. Your identification? Hmmm, this cheque is extinct. Sorry? This cheque is extinct. Bottomline sha, you cannot pay me. Wait oh; she said the cheque was ‘extinct’. What meant her? Oh! See this guy, what was he thinking of ….he signed ’04 rather than ’08. But then, ‘extinct’, thot dinosaurs were extinct? Encarta, Encarta where art thou.

 

That obviously is not the end of the story. What did you do to her afterwards? What is that supposed to mean? I did nothing, only, I felt pity for my colleague who would have to spend the weekend (public holiday inclusive) cashless. Ok, something tells me I was supposed to be ‘impressed’; funny enough, I was but, not positively. Can anyone ever impress you? Yes but, it won’t be for something you do consciously.

 

Educate me. The moment you do something consciously to impress another, you have simply given powers to the other. But, when ‘tis a habit……………..it may not necessarily impress people however, ‘twill differentiate you.
