School Stories: Matty's Experience Part 1




This article is a guest post compiled by a student for myschools.com.ng. He wants students aspiring to further their education in higher institutions to learn somethings from his experiences while he awaited admission. Enjoy...


It all started may 27th 2014 when I signed up to work with Gidanbu  Enterprise, it was my first working experience, after waiting aimlessly and anxiously to gain admission into any university after writing my WAEC the previous year. I actually never had any intentions of working but my mom had her own plans for me as she got tired of me lying aimlessly at-home from morning till night, eating, pressing my phone and gaining weight unnecessarily.

I wasn't the only ‘waiter’ in this condition, I was assisted by some jobless friends at that time including Goddy whom I’ll be talking about as we advance. I would wake up in the morning after saying my prayers and freshing up, I would eat breakfast, watch TV a little, do some house chores and go back to my room and begin to press my phone from morning till evening while having some heavy meals in-between.. Then perhaps visit some friend and that would be all for the day. Only to repeat the same process all over again the next day. This went on for months on-ending...

Now what really pissed my mom off wasn't my staying at home, it was how I would pest her for pocket money all day, everyday.. She was doing it judiciously very-well when I initially graduated from high school, but as time went on, she couldn't tolerate it anymore... She decided to take matters into her own hands by approaching my soon-to-be boss. She came home that faithful day and broke the news to me that she had finally secured a lucrative job for me and I would have a lot of tips for pocket money.. WOW! on hearing this I readily agreed and resumed work the following week..

Now after working tirelessly for a week, I was handed a week’s worth of salary as I started just when the month was ending 27th may, I then decided to involve my friend Godswill Samuel to join me in the entity so we could enjoy and catch all the possible fun being my very good friend. It was then the whole story changed, due to his experience in the field and possible manpower, favoritism began to creep in, it first started in the secret such as giving to him excess allowances, openly praising him and openly reprimanding me, what the whole silly excuse was, was that I was acting too slow, that to an extent was true but I will officially like to blame it all on my inexperience.

Part two on its way...
