When the wife is the head of the busi­ness

The Manica Post - - Teenchat/Blabbermouth/Weekender Guy & Girl/Wedding -

BLABBER was im­pressed to learn about that pop­u­lar busi­ness­man who has given his wife so much power and re­spect to the ex­tent of al­low­ing her to run the show at this build­ing in the city cen­tre.

I mean that other pompous busi­ness­man who never misses a chance to let peo­ple, in­clud­ing strangers, know who he is, what he owns and knows.

I mean that one whose build­ing was of­fi­cially opened by a for­mer States­man.

Yes, that one who was once on this widely fol­lowed col­umn af­ter his un­bri­dled sex­ual ap­petite pushed him to pounce on a hap­less maid at home.

Word reach­ing Yours Truly is that the wife now calls the shots, and has curved a niche of hir­ing and fir­ing ten­ants willy-nilly.

Blabber un­der­stands that clients now hardly suc­ceed in ne­go­ti­at­ing busi­ness with the fam­ily. You may agree busi­ness terms with the hus­band, but it is the Madam Boss who has the fi­nal word and her sig­na­ture is the seal of ap­proval.

How­ever, the sad thing is that she seems to have lim­ited knowl­edge and skill to nav­i­gate the tur­bu­lent wa­ters of busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tion in the pre­vail­ing en­vi­ron­ment. Her heavy­handed ap­proach is ac­tu­ally work­ing against the suc­cess of their com­pany.

Yours Truly hopes and pray that this woman will not ar­chi­tect the demise of the guy’s busi­ness­man’s em­pire.

Blabber is watch­ing!

Hard times for our dear prophet

What is this that we hear about this other pop­u­lar and pint-sized prophet who is now singing the blues in the city?

I mean that other sex­ual pervert mas­querad­ing as a Man of God.

I mean the one who started off his ill-fated evan­gel­i­cal min­istry in that other high den­sity sub­urb on the out­skirts of the city and later tried with­out suc­cess to ven­ture into the dog-eat-dog en­vi­ron­ment of the cap­i­tal city.

He then re­turned to con­cen­trate on his lo­cal con­gre­ga­tion, but un­for­tu­nately the gods seem to have de­serted him and things are not well in his min­istry.

Dwin­dling num­ber of fol­low­ers be­came the or­der of the day and word reach­ing Yours Truly is that sev­eral pas­tors within his church have turned their backs on him and de­serted the church.

As if that was enough, the boy is now des­per­ate to the ex­tent of re­search­ing on church at­ten­dees’ back­grounds so as to fake prophe­cies dur­ing church gath­er­ings.

Des­per­a­tion can never get any worse!

Be­ware of these stu­dents

This one is for plea­sure seek­ers around the city.

Please, be warned that there are three fe­male stu­dents at this other col­lege, spe­cialises in tech­ni­cal ori­en­ta­tion, who are pouncing on un­sus­pect­ing rev­ellers in trendy wa­ter­ing holes around the city.

I mean that re­spected in­sti­tu­tion near the city cen­tre and op­po­site a ser­vice sta­tion and this pop­u­lar de­nom­i­na­tion.

Their modus operandi is sim­ple and straight for­ward.

They pre­tend to be in­no­cent col­lege stu­dents when hav­ing qual­ity time in the dif­fer­ent night spots they fre­quent only to steal from their ‘boyfriends’, dur­ing bed­time.

Be­ing fore­warned is be­ing fore­armed.

In any case Blabber will soon name and shame them.
