More Stories From My NYSC Experience

I almost got sacked on Monday.
Or maybe redeployed to Chibok.
It's a bit complicated and seeing that I do not control who reads this post, my employers may just be going through it, so I dare not make things worse than they already are.
Lessons learnt anyway include:
1. To greet the Oba 'Kabiesi' whether it sounds good in my mouth or not.
2. To follow the Oba around like ants follow sugar until he is done with inspection.
3. To make sure I appear in the group photo with the Oba.
And to wait until the Oba leaves before I take a glass of water.
Actually, my main mistake was failure to recognize that the name of the hospital I work in starts with 'Oba' and that the Oba must not be in kingly attire for the name to take effect.
I wasn't being disrespectful. I was just being a girl from the east.
Lesson number 7, when in Rome, act like the Romans.
