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

09 August 2016, 07:43 Shakila Alivitsa

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 miserable.

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 my case.

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 office.

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 parcel!

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, day out.

Or would you rather just have a glass of wine and kill the loneliness- guess which one I pick.
