My friend,lets call her Winnie, has an okayjob . She could afford to feed, clothe and keep herself groomed. Problem is, she lives with this dead beat nigga who got laid off work 2 years ago and is still tarmacking. 2 years later. He has sat on his ass for 2 years sending out CV’s and going for interviews. 2 years. It hasn’t hit this 40something year old’s mind to devise a plan B, C and even D. If one can’t get a job in their desired field, one applies to jobs outside the desired field or goes into business. If you are 40 years old, i assume that you have been in employment for about 13 years. If you got laid off and can’t get nobody to hire you, it means you were not very good at whatever you have done for 13 years. Time to finally grow some balls and re-strategize.
Newton’s first law of motion states that an object in motion tends to stay in motion, and an object at rest tends to remain at rest. This law applies to people. While some are naturally driven to complete projects, others are simply lazy. Laziness, a lifestyle for some, is a temptation for all. But the Bible is clear that, because the Lord ordained work for man, laziness is sin. The book of proverbs is full of lacklash for lazy ass nigga bitches;
- “Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise” ( 6:6)
- “The sluggard’s craving will be the death of him, because his hands refuse to work” (21:25);
- “As a door turns on its hinges, so a sluggard turns on his bed” (26:14)
- “He who is slothful in his work is a brother to him who is a great waster” (18:9)
- “Diligent hands will rule, but laziness ends in slave labor” (12:24)
- “The soul of the lazy man desires and has nothing; but the soul of the diligent shall be made rich” (13:4 )
How does a grown ass African able-bodied sane minded husband and a father, sit at home and let a woman feed him and his kids. What does he do all day, watch Nigerian movies and gossip with the help? Does he cook and clean the kids, does he pop the kids? Should she fire the help and have him take care of the home? What does he do all day at home? Does she give him money every 2 weeks to get his hair cut? Does he get an allowance? Does she pay his cell phone bills? When he goes for interviews, does she give him lunch money?
Times are tough for us all and one needs to suck it up and do what needs to be done to earn a living. Not being able to secure employment is not a good enough excuse. Start a business, start selling Newspapers outside your gate for all i care. Sell sweets inside a citi hoppa. Get your lazy ass off the sofa and bring home the bacon dammit. Lazy men who refuse to put on their hustle are the scum on earth. They don’t deserve to eat. They should all starve to death. Useless.
Mwanaume ni effort.
