the day before the last post

The moment we become legendary

indeed on this day we all become legendary. its not yet time for any speeches but we are literally by the first finish line.. first hurdle and i can imagine there will be more to come but we are not jumpin over this one oh. we are runnin straight through it.
u know i keep thinkin i should dedicate some time and share with u the story of NS1463., how it came about and why we are still around and relevant.. maybe one day.. maybe one day..
things are cool.. still on my grind.. sales have been slow.. well thats on me tho, i literally camped out at the store for days to make sure things gets done right and then going thru inventory is def no joke i wish there was an easier way. hmmm!!! maybe bassey and bayo take notes oh..
anyway its all good not much to blog about.. still lookin for a correct sales person... so far i havent been impressed and ns needs a passionate staff cuz as i am, i wear NS emotions on my sleeve oh so its very personal. fyi if u r not feelin ns just keep it movin oh.. bassey is not here to play the good COP and me i am the bad cop. what do u expect u cant come into a fathers house and tell him how ugly his daughter is .. lol i mean what do u expect him to say.. thank you for comin by we appreciate ur opinion and we hope one day u will see her differently :) that wont be our case oh.. so dont test me.. i dont have it in me to be diplomatic.
but i am sure its all love we will get from u.. back to the store we will be unofficially open on monday the 24th nov 08 . but there are a few behind the scenes things we need to get done so i am hopin sometime early dec we can have an official opening ..

enough rambling. enjoy the pics. they say pics can tell a story well i initially sequenced the pics to flow better than this.. but i cant figure out the mathimatical formula or i am too lazy to fix it :) much love and ns loves u more

what doesnt kill u.......

only makes u die younger in nigeria.

so i dare u to ask me how my day was? infact i tripple dare u to ask me how my day really played out.. shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit ( for those that watched the wire.. u should get that reference) my day was pretty rough. probably an understatement.. u know its like wearing a beautiful white suit and then having a big red wine stain on the jacket.. no matter how things fall ur way later u will know things aint just right.. tomorrow has to be a better day for real otherwise its back in the uuuuusaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. well maybe not but this is my last warning to all the morons in uniforms that think they have power or rights... u dont have ish.. and at the end of the day u will get what u deserve..

so how does my day play out.. i went to VI to link up with hakeem then stopped by smalls place.. not like u will know these guys anyway. but the wahala started on my way back to the shop..

so we made our final u turn and we see these group of men in white and black uniforms.. now they usually dont stop private cars .. so i thot.... but somehow the driver also has blame.. its like these guys stop u but dont really stop u.. if u r tooooooooooooooo gullible( not sure thats the right word.. but pretty much not all the cars they ask to stop .. stop and nothin happens after that)

anyway back to my lament. so we get pulled over .. i am thinkin fuck.. i dont want to deal with these ppl. in nigeria when u get pulled over it usually will cost u some money and some how they will always find something wrong to seize ur car.. i am sure there will be a day cars will be seized or fined for not havin a workin radio or maybe even a PEN.. back to my story again.. so we are pulled over.. the driver is confident all our papers are legit. this will be an in and out thing.. me i am thinkin.. na mehn.. this things aint just in and out.. they will run their mouth. then my dumbass will respond in my yoruba english and then the guys will be like mugu done land. this one we go chop better money...

anyway long story short. we had everything but MOT.. now apparently it means something to them. but most car owners rnt even aware of it.. plus they were mainly for commercial vehicles now its for all vehicles.. the fine was 5k which aint that bad if it was just straight forward fine but to make the matter more suitable to the jungle in nigeria..

what these guys thot of was. once they realize u dont have the paper work. whici is probably a wannabe vehicle inspection.. they in some cases seized ur car keys, in our case since i didnt give that up. they took the tags.. and one of there superman officers decided to sit in the car. now to resolve the issue.. u will have to go to accordin to them make payment at a specific bank branch in a heavy traffic area. pay the amount and come back and pick ur car up at the office on the other side of town pretty much. now with this option .. to pay the fine off. they will ask u for some tax info.. imagine that.. what the eff does this have to do with taxes.. its like before payin ur speedin ticket they ask u for ur tax returns.. now what was more a really bad set up was. this tax info they asked about i am sure its like askin u to provide proof on the sales taxes u paid at Burger King.. u know something very trivial or something hardly kept or even remembered. long story short.. more money out the ying yang...

well i got lucky or maybe unlucky somehow they were friendly enough .. choosin my words carefully.. to take my job well done gift to them.. and they let us go..

now gettin into my complex and sharin my story with some ppl.. i realized i got off easy. some ppl ended up payin 35k to 50k to get the car because of the tax info no one had or ever paid.

long story short. the ppl that are suppose to protect us in naija are part of the ppl raping us.. anywhere else a warning or a reasonable fine on the spot.. but in naija things have to be done differently. so what i dont understand now is what if i was visiting lagos from a different state.
why should i get penalized for rules that dont apply to me in my own state..

craziness.. beasts of no nation

ns still loves u more..
