I had an interesting day well going for a job interview today. Let me take you through memory lane of what happened today.
Knowing how important this interview was for me, I woke up early in order to be at the location before 10 AM. I found my way to the bus stop and waited for a cab going my direction.
“yellow pawpaw where you dey go?” a young man draws my attention, of course, he will call me that because I was fair in complexion.
‘Wuse’ I replied in an irritated tone.
‘Why you dey talk to me like that, ashawo like you’
I ignored him and rushed into a cab going my way still very angry that I had to be insulted by a total Stanger and to make it worse, I was sitting at the back of the cab with three other passengers.
Just then I notice someone’s hand on my laps. It was the hand of the man sitting close to me and he was rubbing his left hand all over my laps, I then hit his hand and cautioned him, seeing that the rest of passengers were giving him a side-eye, he apologized and blamed his behavior on how uncomfortable the cab was. But I did not buy any of that.
By the time I got to the interview center, I was already feeling frustrated and angry by what I had to experience that morning. After some minutes, I was sitting in front of a male interviewer.
“your credentials show you are qualified for the job but are you willing to do what it takes to get the job? You are a very beautiful girl, hope you understand me”?
Knowing that the man was asking me to sleep with him, I left the office after giving him a piece of my mind. When I got home, I ranted about my experience to my family.
