Forget Thank God its Friday, my first coherent thought on Friday mornings is “Please God don’t let it be Friday”. Now, I have nothing against Friday as a day, religiously its the holiest day of the week. But… Its my Drivers day off! I’m literally a prisoner in my own home, any errands that I couldn’t do over the week and wasn’t able to do on Thursday will have to wait till next week.Not only that, but almost every other girl I know is in the same situation I am.
So a typical Friday convo goes a lil’ something like this:
“nothing, you wanna do something today? I’m bored”
“Sure!… why don’t you come over we can watch a movie?”
“uh… why don’t YOU come over? I don’t have a driver”
“me neither. day off. and he took the car”
“whatever. Lemme know if your situation changes. Bye”
“‘Kay, Bye ”
Some of us would rely on our brothers to take us to the mall or a friend’s house… but my baby bro is all grown up now and out of the country studying. So yeah, I’m stuck. Forget my dad he hates driving and only rarely drives me anywhere that’s out of his way.
I was thinking of taking a taxi yesterday… or one of those “drivers-per-ride” which is just an unmarked taxi. The pay-per-ride drived didnt pick up his phone. But then my grandmother sent me her driver, who apparently doesn’t have a day off… poor guy. lucky her.
