Life's little annoying things

Updated on October 10, 2012
-Oh my God what the hell is this? Men, i don't know why these stupid Government people cannot fix these roads,i mean what the fucking hell is this?

Folks, the above statement was made by a co-passenger on a bus on our way from somewhere to another place. And the complain was because of the terrific traffic jam caused by the bad condition of the road we were traveling on.

It is now forty five minutes and no single car has moved so people began coming out from their cars and within couple of minutes,believe me; you could see just people and not cars anymore, worried Fathers driving down the whole family, worried Lovers on their way to the new cinema,exhausted taxi and bus drivers, i mean, it was truly hectic,horrific and inhuman.

What is really wrong with these guys in power? When not in power, they have the solution to everything;vote them in and they become a menace to the lives of every dick and duck

The frustration was no longer accommodating, i mean who would even accommodate frustration? It became so annoying and believe me, almost everybody on that road,on that traffic that day was causing the entire sector of the Government, if causes could kill someone, believe me; the President himself would have died that day.

-Fuck that idiot
-He is a bastard
-What we have is a goat head and not a president
-That man is the worst we have had so far
-No idea, no vision for the country, he is nothing but an imbecile
-Mumu,obote man

The above were all for the President,anyway the thing is this, the very first guy, my co-passenger could no longer wait anymore, now one hour forty five minutes.So he decided to go back because the opposite lane was free.

-I am going back and when i get to the junction, i will board a mini cab and use the express way

The guy crossed over to the other side of the road then waved down a bike (Okada) and began traveling back but few meters away from where i was standing, i saw flames of fire, i mean i heard the explosion either, it was like the kind of sound you hear in Movie..Gbooooooooooooooooooooooom!!!

Fifteen minutes afterwards, the air was clear and we all could see the burning tanker, the flame was heavy and all effort by good Samaritans to extinguish the fire was to no avail, the fire extinguishers was no big deal. Thanks to God, as the fire men arrived within minutes and controlled the situation and the flame. by this time, most of us have moved closer to the scene of the accident and have totally forgotten that we were held in a horrific traffic.

Oh my God, what is this i shouted, Oh God why? Why?.. i kept asking this and did not even see the tears dropping from my eyes;what a world?

You see, if only this guy had waited,this would not have happened, was it his fault? There was no answer to all these glittering question on my head and heart,i saw him when the three fire men pulled him out from below the tanker, he was burnt beyond recognition but i could see his left pair of shoe and that how i recognized him, and from eye witnesses, the bike was on a top speed and as the rider tried to avoid a tanker coming from a wrong direction,he lost control of the bike and 'gbosaaa', they ended underneath the tanker, a fuel carrier thus the explosion.

Both the rider and the passenger were killed.Believe me, if these guy had waited few more hours because not quite long after the accident did the traffic eased, the broken down car blocking the pass-way was wrecked away. I must confess that seeing his vacant seat for the next three hours we journeyed sent freezing cold all over me,still unbelievable but you see sometimes the best thing for us is to appreciate Life’s annoying little things. This particular incident took me back to 9/11. Do you guys know that few people who were suppose to be at the world trade center on that particular dreadful day but were not present when Osama struck were all away because of some funny annoying circumstances.

Take a look at these...

As you might know, the head of a major company survived the tragedy of “9/11” in New York because his son started kindergarten.He had to drive him to school first before going to work.Reason: Wife don't want to do it.

Another fellow working with the Fedex was alive because it was his turn to bring donuts.And his bike broke down on his way back

Sandra working with one travel agency at the 78th floor had to go home to change her cloths because she spilled food on her clothes.

Now,as i remembered all these things,the one that struck me was the man who put on a new pair of shoes that morning, took the various means to get to work but before he got there, he developed a blister on his foot. He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid. That is why he is alive today.

You see, folks,sometimes the best thing we could do as human is to take things the way they are,there is no need to hurry when it is uncalled for,believe me,every forsaken lost and ignored second of our life cannot and will not be recovered,every minute of our life is a gamble and every moment you live,appreciate it to the fullest because it takes nothing but a twinkle of an eye.

Now when I am stuck in traffic…
– miss an elevator…
– turn back to answer a ringing telephone…
– all the little things that annoy me…
– I think to myself…
this is exactly where God wants me to be at this very moment.

The next time your morning seems to be going wrong,
– the children are slow getting dressed,
– you can’t seem to find the car keys,
– you hit every traffic light…
– don’t get mad or frustrated;
God is at work watching over you.

May God continue to bless you with all those annoying little things – and may you remember and appreciate their possible purpose.
