All cars parked at owner's risk

I was talking to my friend about how you just can't fight with some people, especially in public. I can't remember now what lead to that conversation but that's not important. I started telling her about a girl that I knew from University. In the middle of the story, I thought that I should gist you guys too. So here it is.

Let's call her Joan. She is an Igbo girl. Tall, fair in complexion and "pleasantly plump". The first time I noticed her was when she came by my room to see one of my room mates. I joined in their conversation just as she about to leave and after that time, whenever I saw her in school we'd exchange pleasantries.

One day, there was "drama" in school. My room mate told me about it. It turned out that Joan was the center of events. Her ex-boyfriend had come to school with about 3 of his friends to “jack” her for what he claimed was the theft of money from his house. He started shouting in the middle of the faculty quadrangle about how she stole his 25k and he wanted his money back. He was not quiet about it at all. Joan had an answer for him. Here's what I remember of what she allegedly said:

"Everybody come and hear o!"
"I used to date this guy and we broke up. The other day, he saw me walking on the street, gave me a ride and we ended up back at his place. When I was dressing up, I noticed that he had some money in his wardrobe. I counted out and collected N25,000. Why not, when we dated, I got pregnant and since he refused to pay, I had to use my own money for the abortion. I was merely collecting what I was owed."

Then she looked around: "Was I wrong?"

Are you wondering what was happening with the guy and his friends? He turned tail and walked off with his friends. The abortion was probably supposed to be the ace up his sleeve. The next thing he would have said to disgrace her. Well, apparently no-one was disgracing her that day.

Fight 2. There was another fight in front of the faculty and again Joan was in the middle of it. This time, one of her friends had annoyed her badly and she started shouting.

“You stupid girl, I made you what you are. I was the one that picked you up from the gutter, gave you clothes and introduced you to that Alhaji and now you think you can give me mouth? I don't blame you. In fact, that top you are wearing is even my own. I want it back. I want it back now”. Then she attempts to tear the top off this girl. In broad day light, with a crowd of people as audience. The girl in trying to save herself, attempts to tear Joan’s own top off her body. She really should have known that absolutely nobody disgraces Joan. If she's going to go down, she'll take herself down. So what did Joan do? She ripped her own top off and (this one is according to them o!) took off her bra as well and then resumed the fight.

After that last fight, ol' boy I greeted that girl with fear and never prolonged any conversation with her. Who knows what will set her off?
Some people you should never fight with.


  1. I didn't even reach the second case to conclude that she's a nut house. Imagine shouting you did an abortion in public. Phew...Bad bad girl :(

  2. Lolll - now that is Gangsta! Definitely the kind of person you steer well clear of!

  3. What? LOLO.....Absolutely unreal...

  4. Lawl... There are really gils like these who do not have a care in the world.... I avoid them like a plague!

  5. u sure say no be warfi the babe grow up in?

  6. Well, i just dropped by to let you know of a competition that is running at the africanloft.

    Pls, participate.


    Ps: 600 words is just a page..

  7. lol, that Joan is just a real fire starter.

    I cannot and will not, by special grace of God EVER fight in public.

  8. I too knew a Joan-like girl at Uni, no-one messed with her

  9. ok my dear - it's been too long! UPDATE OH!!!!

  10. You were at play?
    awwwh, next time, email others to ask who would be there,
    really would have loved to see you.

  11. what does that ubong da blogger mean she probably grew up in warri? i ve tons of female relations who grew up there and still live there. a mad person is mad, no excuse of where he or she grew up. we encounter them everyday. learning to be smart to avoid them is the key. some are looking for people's hand to die on.

  12. every one has met a joan, or someone close to that, ready to rip off her own clothes before ripping off her opponents. A jerry springer type. I abhor them.

  13. wow... Joan is hardcore! yep.. definitely a proceed with caution type "acquaintance"
