This was too funny I had to post it. This was a text message exchange between my dad and my sister. My sister is stuck in Asaba, Delta State doing her NYSC. She was posted to the Ministry of Works and Mines and you all know how 'ministry work' tends to be like in our dear country.
Onyenachi: Fada! Just incase u haven't noticed, i have been sending texts to you because I don't have much credit to call. As the case may be, your daughter is low on cash. Moreover as a fellow 'civil servant', government has not paid us. They say they will pay at the beginning of June. Besides I am tired of this place. They are wasting time and money posting me here because I do absolutely nothing all day except smile... more like hiss and roll my eyes at people.
DAD: Onyi, thanks for ALL the mails. Well...our own month is 40 days but I will see what I can do to save you from starvation. But for now DRINK WATER. God Bless.
