As a lady, I understand women who choose not to marry and deal with a man every day

Nairobi - Men are not the fountain of life. Just
because a woman is single and in her 40s or 50s or plus, does not mean she is
If I walk outside right now, I will find a man. I think if I
mentioned a few names and they can walk outside wherever they are now, they
would find them or they can just as well come to her.
At times when I encounter something, it
makes me wonder if I want to get married. I will give a couple of examples for
The first one is very recent.
When you sort of run an office you get to
encounter many people. One workmate after he is done eating, cleans up his
surroundings and spruces it up. On the other hemisphere I will mention this man
whom I will burn in hell before I even accept one of his many invites. It is
not a must for me to date this guy for me to know he would make the worst
husband for me ever I have already read his number just from what he does in
The other day, he empties his trash in the
bin, so the cleaning lady picks everything up and at the bottom we see a
chewing gum. This man did not even have the brains and etiquette to wrap it in
something before throwing it to get stuck in a bin.
So the cleaning lady was obviously not
going to pick it and I waited the next two days for him to show up- very
anxiously by the way. Putting on my very kind, calm face I explain to him why
he was so uncouth and he should pick it up. The man tells me I am being petty-
in my head I know I am being petty but I just simply point out, so ‘you would
like your wife or daughter to be picking up things someone has chewed out of
their mouth or what about you? Would you pick something I spewed out of my
mouth?’ He walks away saying he will pick it but he just comes back mumbling
how I am the queen of being petty.
Dear Sir, Mr Man, you did not leave a wife
here or come with one to be picking up after you. I was going to be petty all
day every day and from that day he just earned an enemy. How disrespectful! You
can imagine this man as a husband because we are always picking up after him
more than everybody else; even more so than the boss himself. If offered on a
platter, I will die barren and chaste, thank you very much!
The other case, I have so many but I will
limit them to just two.
So these lady sends her husband to get a
parcel for her. It comes and the last name is not hers but because it is a
parcel in Kenya transportation system and we know how those work, we all see it
was an honest mistake.
But the man, two days down has been fuming
inside, case and point, ‘his wife must have another man around because she is
carrying a last name that is not his –on a
He starts a full blown argument about it
and even calls the lady who sent it at eleven in the night to talk about how she
is one of the women in cohorts with the wife practising prostitution.
A parcel brought all this madness!
If I was the said lady, would I have even
sent the man himself to go get it, so he can see it and start drama for me?
Men are a natural cause of hypertension and
high blood pressure. Reproduction is not that serious by the way. When you see
women choosing to just let some things be and live their own lives, it is
because of such. You just sit down and ask yourself whether you have the balls
to actually make it long enough past 50 with one giving you migraines day in,
Or would you rather just have a glass of
wine and kill the loneliness- guess which one I pick.
