Niaje babes si unipe hiyo namba?

21 Mar

Hello gang, how have you been? I know I haven’t had enough time to come here, I keep telling myself to stop with the laziness…
Now I was having a chat with a friend on something I have started noticing too. My friend was on her way to work when she sits next to a guy. After checking her out she started behaving funny and all fidgety to which my friend thought “pickpocket” and clutched her bag tightly. Our guys removed his phone and started texting then he started nudging her. She asks him what? He shows her the draft text “niaje babes si unipe hiyo namba? (loosely translated to hi there babes can I have your number?)”
She burst out laughing and said hell no, I mean he skipped all the norms of good manners. Starting with a hello, introduction etc etc and went straight for the kill. What did he take her for? Was this the new way of making new friends? Where you whip out your phone to text “niaje babes….?” and show it to a perfect stranger? Maybe he thought if she saw his fancy phone, her heart would melt and she would tell him “oh yes you can have my number, and my home address, I think I love you and I want to marry you already, we will have three babies and a four bedroom bungalow in the leafy suburbs….”

Apparently that was the second time someone did that. They don’t talk to you, they nudge you and expect you to just go along with whatever little plan that is going through their little heads.   This made me ask around and I was dismayed yo learn it happens to even guys! Has texting and all this new technological advances changed how we should behave? Should we expect cocktail parties and networking events where people will only be showing their little phone screens to the other people around? Is that where we are going? Is that the future? Two people in the same room but you can only chat? Picture this
Wife: (via chat) There is a snake in the house
Husband (replies) Oh you mean the one sitting next to me?

    This is a funny tale, Mackel9 and quite an eye-opener to the modern ways of the digital world. There is a phone box just outside the shops near where I live. Everyday the phone rings and rings when I’m passing by. One day curiosity got the better of me and I answered it. The caller asked if he could speak to Juanita. She had given him this number and he had tried calling so many times for several weeks but she was never home. When I told him that it was a pay-phone he called me a rude word and hang-up
