Jesus wept! Dudes and dudettes, you won’t believe the gbese I put myself in. Okay o, so yesterday, I was sitting down in my cube jeje, when I got a call from one of my older friends (by older I mean 40s)…”Es, would you like to go to a concert with us?” (by us, she meant ppl 2ice my age or close). I was like, “emm, where, who, what time”…she replies, “its at madision square garden, a caribbean singer (something marshall), starts at 8pm, might last 2 hours”…I was a little hesitant at first…but I figured what the hell, I’ve never really been to a concert before…well except for that Majek Fashek one where momsie got into a spit fire with another woman over a chair – long story. “Sure, I’ll go”. Woohoo, rock and roll dude!
So, today older friend ims me, “I ordered the ticket. Its $101.65 plus tax”….YE! 100 gini? Ni bo, si bo? It’s not like I’m going to a Lupe Fiasco concert. I wont even pay 80 pa for that one sef. As per bigger girl levels, I didn’t want to show myself…so I asked nicely, “101 each? Or collectively?”…she is like, “what do you think?”… na wa o, I was asking a simple question, so I go…”I don’t know I haven’t been to a concert before” – which is partially true. She goes, “really? Ok, its 101.65 each.”
I wanted to cry. I called Sir-Real (the frugal master) immediately and poured out my heart! “NOOOOOOOOO! I can’t pay $101.65, I’m frugalicious dammit…I don’t even know who the musician is…what should I do Mighty Frugal One?” – well I didn’t say it like that sha but close… Of course Sir-Real felt my pain and after scolding me he told me to pay and this should be a lesson for next time. 101.65 pa – damn! This show better be good o…’cos I plan on saving a buck each day to foot the bill. STUPIDOS!
ps: this is where my rich friends come in handy…where are y’all when i need you?
