Berry Good Advice: Check your Email!!!

Hey guys,

How are ya? I hope you're prepping for a fun weekend. We'll see how mine goes.

So my family and close friends know this thing about me: I can be VERY forgetful. As in, VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY! I forget a lot of things from faces to names (I need to meet some people 3 or 4 times before I recognize them). I forget event dates - I think I've mentioned here that one day, I got my sisters and cousins to get all dressed up and decked out for this Bridal Show in Atlanta, only for us to get there and I had mixed up the dates :p I forget things Cakes tells me - NOT EVERY TIME O! Because he'll now use this admission against me in a future argument. Anyways, why am I saying this and what does this have to do with checking your emails? 

SUNDAY EVENING
*I see a text on my phone about goods for me in Oshodi*
Me: Cakes, see this text message. I think it's spam.
Cakes: No it's not. Give me your phone. (he likes to pretend he's Superman) HELLO?! WHOSE NUMBER ARE YOU TRYING TO REACH? WHERE DID YOU GET THIS NUMBER? DON'T CALL THIS NUMBER AGAIN, DO YOU HEAR ME?!
Me: *rolling eyes because Cakes can be extra sometimes*

MONDAY MORNING
*I see the same text again on my phone PLUS 3 missed calls from the number. I respond to their text saying, "Wrong number."*
Me: *called Cakes* Hmm, these my Igbo brothers are still trying me o.
Cakes: I told you! It's 419. They got your number from somewhere.


TUESDAY MORNING
*I see a missed from the same number AGAIN*
Me: Hmm, Cakes. These guys are really serious. They've called again. See enh, call them back and warn them. Tell them that you know who they are! And if they keep calling my phone and sending me stupid messages, you will call EFCC for them and they'll be arrested for fraud and 419 charges! NONSENSE!
Cakes: *calls them* WHY ARE YOU STILL CALLING THIS PHONE? I'VE ALREADY WARNED YOU BEFORE! 
Me: *shouting in the background* WE WILL CALL EFCC FOR YOU!!!!
Cakes: WHAT PACKAGE? WE DID NOT ORDER ANY PACKAGE FROM ANYWHERE! WHICH PACKAGE FROM CHINA?!
Me: *confused* China? OHHHHHHHH!!! WAIT! Did they say China? Oh, I ordered something last week online. :D *hides face*
Cakes: *looks at me like I'm crazy* Oh. My wife forgot she ordered something. She should check her email? Okay, thanks.
Me: *sheepishly looking at Cakes* Erm, remember the lace I ordered? I think that's it. Lemme check my email. 

It turns out that the Friday before, I had received an email saying that the package would arrive the next day. OOPS!

I apologize to my Igbo brethren in Oshodi for coming to stupid conclusions instead of checking my email. NDO!

  2. This got me laughing so hard. Oya have a back up abi evernote or something to keep important info, but then again if you don't check your email you most likely won't even bother with this one. Your Igbo brothers would have just carried the stuff to dash their babe.

  8. "We will call EFCC for you!". Loooool!
    The people were persistent and patient oh. If it were me I'd stop calling you are take your package to my house as my own jeje.
    Sadly, I am also super forgetful. It's so bad that I can tell you the same story 4 times without remebering I told you previously.

    1. That's why we're brothers and sisters - so that you can forgive when Berry threatens to have you arrested.

  12. Lol! I'm showing my sister this post and I'm glad to see someone worse than me when it comes to forgetting stuff! Haba, how can you forget beautiful lace that you ordered...you didn't like it again?! Lol!
    Okay don't mind me, Berry.
    For emails I find that pop up notifications helps me and so I don't miss important email, I keep an email account I use only for such things so when I hear the notification sound, I'll read it immediately.
    For dates, I write a note in my calendar and set it to remind me a day or two before the event.
    For faces/names I always forget too...so my trick is to give the person a nice nickname so when I see the person I won't say he/she...until I can remember the real name.
