DRAMA @ WORK PT 2
Due to popular demand, I'll finish this story. .......................
The next day i walked into the studio, he was talking to a female co-worker and he turned back& saw me....
He Says: Oh, Speak of the devil!
I say: (Sarcastic tone) Oh, Hi angel! (and i walked out of the studio)
Later, my co-worker comes to me and asks what happened and i told her, she then said David had gone around telling anyone who would listen that I was disrespectful to him. Being a media house, the word spread faster than wild fire, every one heard about it. They kept coming up to me to ask why i didnt hang out with david anymore.....
We ignored each other & spoke only when absolutely necessary for almost a month. A female co-worker & friend (lets call her Nikky) came up to me and said:
Nikky: I need to talk to you
Me: What about?
Nikky: About u & David, We (your friends @ work) Think u should go talk to him, apologize because......(I cut her off)
Me: WHAT? Hell NO!!!
Nikky: We know he's an idiot, he's immature.........but we think you should try to talk to him, not because you are wrong, but so that u can get back on the morning show. U know its the #1 morning show in Naija. U cant deny that it has helped your career as a broadcaster. We know he misses having u on the show and we know u miss being on the show..........
Me: I cant do it, It would just make him have a bigger head, i cant. He has never once apologized to me, i cant keep getting disrespected!
Nikky: This is a career move, do this for your career.
Me: I'll think about it. Thanks.
So i though about it for a few hours........& decided to grudgingly talk to the idiot! This is how the conversation went...............
Me: So whats going on?
Him: What do u mean whats going on (smirking)
Me: All the drama, all the wahala
Him: Theres nothing going on, we had a nasty argument. Im sorry it happened, but then im not sorry it happened, It helped me get stuff off my chest.
Me: Huh? What do u mean? what stuff? If u had stuff to say all this while, why didnt u just say it? & What does this have to do with the show?
Him: I want to go back to the days when it was just David on the show. Ive been listening to my tapes and i think im better in the studio by myself. Having you on the show, was quite distracting. I think i work better on my own & if im going to have another female co-host, it will be a more mature female, our age gap is too much. Plus u have an attitude & u are too mouthy.
Me: (loosing my cool) an attitude? mouthy? Who started the argument? You were the one who started raising your voice and saying nasty things. What did u want me to do? just let u talk to me like that? Im tired of being of spoken to that way, im tired of being treated badly. & U had the NERVE to bring up MY FATHER? & U expect me to be quiet??
Him: Too bad, he got u the job anyway, you didnt pay any dues..........(I cut him off)
Me: My father has nothing to do with this, I dont think you would like it one bit if i brought ur family into this...................(Some random co-worker just walks into the studio, so i stop talking)
Him: Besides, u made me lazy.......(Another interruption by yet another person...........so i leave the studio)
I regret going to say anything to him. He got even bigger headed. We say hello/hi/good morning or whatever but we dont hang out anymore. (To be cont.)
