Done this before but worth repeating.

We watched the video below this morning and laughed out loud. Sorry but true life connection here.

Our first company office was in Port Harcourt, Nigeria. Our main client was Stena.

As we got to the end of this video he told me about one of his MANY telephone death threats when there.

Local : Gimme 20 million nira or I’ll come and kill you.

Him : 20 million? C’mon. You can do better than that. How about 40 million.

Local : Gimme 40 million nira or I’ll come and kill.

Him : Is that your last offer?

Local: ….

Him : OK. Meet at the xyz Hotel in Lagos at 1pm next Friday. Carry a newspaper under your arm and I’ll be wearing a red rose in my lapel.

The Saturday after the Friday meeting.

Local : Where were you, bitch?

Him : Fuck off you stupid little c**t.

Swear to God. He’d also get threatened with being thrown to the crocodiles or having his wife kidnapped.


My husband has said many times that if someone was stupid enough to kidnap me, they’d ring him up within hours offering a King’s Ransom to take me back.


He knows me so well :o)
