Aint Nobody got time for that

Since I resumed back and started doing my blog rounds (I'm taking my time so I haven't gone far), I've been amazed at whats been going on in blogville. I've missed out on a lot of things o! especially the vouchers @tilola is giving for her "Guest blogger series" and plus the SENTIENT book giveaway by Caeblogs *sobs*

 Anyways, I found an old post on "Aint nobody got time for that" by Coy-introvert. (Click here to read post)   and it inspired me to write my on follow up of the things I don't have time for ;)!

1. 'Hanging' Blackberry smartphones: I dislike seeing the wait sign on blackberry phones (especially the bold series) as if i don't have enough things to do already. Abeg No time for that! Lool!

2. LAG BRT bus queues: Have you ever seen how long the line of people waiting for BRT buses in Lagos especially after working hours? Terrible! It's worse than the usual ATM and bank hall queues that I find equally annoying!

3.Traffic lights: Yeah I know they are put for a reason and so forth... but seriously most times I really don't have time to wait for the lights to change.  (except when i'm on the receiving end of the green light :) ).

4.Hair dryers: One of my least favorite things to do but yet i still find myself voluntarily going to salon to get my hair set (rollers n'all). Why can't there be a hair drying spray or something. No time to seat still and pretend to be reading a magazine when my whole body is crying from the discomfort and heat. Its usually worse if my hair got burnt during the relaxing process :( !

5.Peel Potatoes: In fact no time to peel anything small that requires to much effort and "little" result. Potatoes here are small and require peeling a gazillion to get a decent meal portion. (Garlic and ginger are included in this equation)

6.Suya: Funny how I'm not a big fan of suya  especially the beef one (prefer chicken and gizzard suya) but still I ain't got no time to wait for the Aboki or Mallam to put it back on the grill and roast it properly. (They usually display half-cooked suya)

7.Commercials: I don't need to explain this one!

8.Customer Care lines: I should rephrase and say I don't have time to be put on hold until the next available customer care agent is free to talk to me. To start with I'm calling because i have a compliant or something I don't have time to elongate my discomfort!

9.Caller  tunes especially the annoying and meaningless ones. People should stick to old faithful beep sound or even better, pick on the first ring.

10. Ain't Nobody got time to think of Number Ten :p

"And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone".

(1 Thessalonians 5:14)

"Living as becomes you] with complete lowliness of mind (humility) and meekness (unselfishness, gentleness, mildness), with patience, bearing with one another and making allowances because you love one another."
(Ephesians 4:2)

N.B. Patience is still a virtue I'm cultivating so I'm learning to "get time for all these and much more :)!
