I love the fact that as human being we have the free will to choose to do something. This is usually preceeded by some consideration of the merits (or demerits) of numerous options before selecting a course of action.

I remember a quote from one of Neale Donald Walsch's books... ‘Every decision you make—every decision—is not a decision about what to do. It’s a decision about Who You Are’. I guess that's why the thought process behind the decision is also an important one.

Making a choice is itself a problem as the there is no way to always determine all the actual resulting outcomes it causes. So all causes have a beginning… actually, in truth, all causes are the beginning because for every cause there is an effect.

On Tuesday night, I instinctively chose to pick up the ringing phone in my hotel room as I was aimlessly surfing the internet. On the line, was one of the Principals I worked for; however, he wasn't calling to discuss tomorrow’s meeting, instead he wanted to know if I would say yes to his gesture which was supposedly innocent but actually sheepishly disguised.

His choice: Engaging in pretence to get me into a comprising position…

My choice: Pondering the rationale behind his stupid behaviour after my initial repulse…

I politely declined as I had already watched the film ‘The Departed’.

Maybe he thought I would eventually depart from my senses and that is why he chose to continue in hope; after all hope is the quintessential human delusion... or peharps he was under the illusion that if he persisted I would realise that I had no other choice but to agree to what he was proposing because as my Principal Consultant, he was the one with the authority.

My reaction: Indignation!

His reaction: Embarrassment!

Can someone please give a valid reason as to why in hell I would leave my hotel room for a married man’s room to perch on his bed at 10:45pm under the pretext of watching a DVD?

No… I didn’t think so!

Enkay 1 September 2009 at 12:55  

Na wa o! What a pathetic man!

tobenna 3 September 2009 at 12:46  

Really though...
For men, it can really get rough like that.
But then again, thats why we have teenage years to burn off all that agro.
So, honestly, it can be controlled.
The guy shoulda taken a chill pill...

aloted 3 September 2009 at 13:16  

o ga o..some men sha!!!!!!

Chiamaka 3 September 2009 at 20:53  

Some of these married men just make the thought of marriage nauseating*(did i spell that right)? Anyway, if you had gone to watch the DVD, he still would have told you he didn't believe you were naive enough to think you were just coming to watch a DVD. That's what some lazy lecurer's do too, as a way of fighting the goverment, they sexually abuse students, if that doesn't work, they go on strike, just as they've gone now.

Shubby Doo 5 September 2009 at 12:58  

@buttercup - lol

@enkay - yup!

@tobenna - i think he'd have happily opted to take another kinda pill that night...hmmmm, viagra maybe! lol

@aloted - u know! lol

@HYAW - that's so sad...geting a good education should have nothing to do with sexual favours

Tigeress 5 September 2009 at 16:47  

only one reason why u'd do that- to get laid! lol!! Allow d guy jare- no harm in trying. hehehehe

Shubby Doo 6 September 2009 at 11:22  

@tigeress - see me see trouble o! woman lemme catch u!!! with a married man that aint my hubby?...hell naw! so doesnt tick the valid reason box for me at all!!!

tunrayo 7 September 2009 at 16:43

Could it be that you just wanted to watch the movie?

TheAfroBeat 27 October 2009 at 03:56  

Classic!! People can be soo unoriginal! Been a hot minute but i trust you're doing well!

Don 3 May 2010 at 13:15  

Too funny @ Maybe he thought I would eventually depart from my senses and that is why he chose to continue in hope;

I cannot help but to laugh cause I believe him seeing you in his own 'imaginative light' had absolutely nothing to do with the reality of the situation.

Then, on top of that, he is a married man. Smh.
