Hello, Where Are You?

 Spouses, parents, friends, business partners and
several others generally ask the simple question ‘Where are you?’ when talking
to loved ones or business partners over the phone.

Several times too, rather
than give a simple reply of where they are, some people tell lies about their
location at that point in time, because they believe that with the mobile phone
it’s not easy to tell where a person is.

Over the weekend, I had a very engaging period, though
it had to do with work, but I found time to also relax.



 While chatting with
some people with whom I shared a table at an event in Freedom Park on Broad
Street, Lagos, something caught my attention. Simple, it was a telephone
discussion.

Now, don’t get me wrong here. I wasn’t like trying to eavesdrop,
 because I was enjoying the discussions
with two other people when the person on the phone kept emphasising that he was
still somewhere in Minna! “But how could he say was in Minna, when we were all
sitting right here in Freedom Park, Lagos?” I thought to myself almost aloud.

With a glass-full of orange juice in my hand, I
managed to push the plate of ‘small chops’ in front of me closer and turned
faced him better. 

Don’t worry about the position I tried to adjust to because
the young man was not perturbed. He continued in his discussion with the person
on the other side. 



He spoke with this angelic voice, full of promises, and
concluded that he would be back to Lagos within the week ahead. He had this broad
but annoying smile on his face as he said ‘bye’!

He obviously knew what I had in mind, so before I
could say a word, he started his confessions. He explained that he had to tell
that ‘small lie’ about where he was because he ought to have given the person
some money two weeks earlier. 



 “But
should that warrant your lying that you were in Minna while you are in Lagos?’’
I asked him. He replied to say it was no big deal saying he was not in Lagos, ‘’after
all, mobile phone helps everyone tell lies about their locations,’’ he
concluded.



He argued that spouses tell lies about their location over the phone,
just as employees do to their employers. In his own case, he wasn’t going to ‘turn
a new leaf’ any time soon, because he had once been ‘caught in the act’.  



While telling a lie that he was in Apapa, the
person he was lying to was right behind him in Ojota area of Lagos. He was
highly embarrassed no doubt, but he sees it as something everybody does now. 

What do you think?

    This is absolutely free, very easy all you need is an internet facility.

    for full details see my blog at work-at-homefree.webnode.com

    I have been using this system for some time now; I will be showing you how to make unlimited cash with your liberty reserve account and a perfect money account. I will try to make it as short as possible. But clear, just like every other business your interest and seriousness counts.

    "The reward for hard work is success".

    THIS IS HOW IT WORKS.

    1. open a liberty reserve account at libertyreserve.com ( this is free).

    2. Open a perfect money account at perfectmoney.com (this is free).

    3. Fund your liberty reserve account with a minimum of 11 USD, because of transaction charges, actually you needed a minimum of 10 USD.

    (Note: To fund or sell your liberty reserve, go to google.com to search for an e-currency exchanger close to you.)

    4. Go to rapid-goldex.com , and exchange 10 USD from your liberty reserve account to your perfect money account.

    1 LR——>1.28 PM, so 10 LR—-> 12.80 PM.

    5. Go to superchange.ru or swapgold.com , exchange 12.80 Perfect money to 11.01liberty reserve.

    1 PM —-> 0.86 LR, so 12.80 PM—>11.01 LR. You have gain 1.01 USD.

    6. Repeat the exchange process from LR—->PM—>LR.

    You can always increase your capital, because the more money you exchange the faster u make your cash. I can make up to 257 USD per day. Doing up to 25 exchanges per hour. But there is also no harm in starting small.

    GOOD LUCK TO YOU.
