Question: My company provides excellent free health care benefits to it’s staff and family, and my newly pregnant wife has been seeing the gynaecologist at the company approved hospital for about two months now.
During my latest on-shore stay – I am often at sea – I accompanied my wife to the gynaecologist for the first time, and while he seemed quite professional and knowledgeable, he’s way too handsome for comfort, a tall, light-skinned half-caste man with blue eyes and a polished British accent to boot!
I normally consider myself a confident, secure man, and I trust my wife, but
Question: I recently found out my friend’s fiancee is cheating on him. Do I tell him? If I don’t and he finds out I knew, wouldn’t he see this as a betrayal of our friendship? At the same time, I wouldn’t want to be the cause of their split as he would surely be devastated by this news. -To tell or not to tell
Answer: Knew this question was going to come sooner or later. So there is you, there is your friend (let’s call him John, shall we?), and there is the cheating fiancee (whom we shall call Rose).
Firstly, I want to assume you are ABSOLUTELY sure she is cheating. Also, you mentioned he is your friend, but I need to ask you, how
Question: I am a middle-aged man of average means. About 5 years ago, my wife kept urging us to move out of our flat to a different area due to flooding in that area. After looking around together with an agent she got, she insisted on a particular flat in Magodo which, though slightly more affordable than the other options at the time, was not my preferred choice as it was farther from our offices than my preferred option.
I wouldn’t consider myself a debtor and I usually paid previous rents relatively promptly. Since we moved to the new place however, she always gave constant reminders once the rent was almost due and insisted it be paid on the exact date. Two years ago she also informed me that the landlord (who lived abroad) wanted the yearly rent 2 months early for some urgent reason, and we managed to meet the request, which didn’t stop ‘the landlord’ from increasing our rent the following year.
While searching her phone recently to retrieve some important numbers to my new phone, I couldn’t help noticing a text message from the agent confirming he had recently forwarded my rent to her account, less his commission! What do I do? While we have the typical ups and downs of any marriage, our marriage could nevertheless be described as blissful. -My Landlord, My Wife
Question: I work in a small friendly open plan office somewhere in Victoria Island, Lagos, comprising 6 co-workers, our boss, and myself.
I usually bring along a can of Coke as part of my lunch, and put this in the fridge in the shared office kitchen beside the office area.
For the past few weeks however, I always meet the Coke can empty whenever I am ready to have lunch. I initially figured it’s only a can of Coke afterall, and even found it funny, especially as the culprit always puts the empty can right back in the fridge.
However, it is now getting on my nerves as no one seems to know anything about it, it is starting to become a distraction, and is also making me look foolish.
My amateur detective moves have included randomly going to the kitchen and adjoining toilet, covertly watching my co-workers, listening intently to sounds from the kitchen area etc, all to no avail. -The Case of the Missing Coke
Question: During a quick visit home from my nearby university in Lagos, Nigeria, I walked in on my parents in the kitchen, in what I would call, a very embarrassing position, involving, some ice cream and a banana.
My reflex reaction was to immediately retreat and head back to the school hostel, and I haven’t been back home in the weeks following the incident.
While my dad has stoicly kept silent since then, my mum however, has been unsuccessfully trying to reach me for weeks.
I am no child, but don’t know how to face them after this, and I fear the longer I put it off, the worse it would get, especially as I have now run out of pocket money. -Going Bananas
Answer: I guess you now know why there always seemed to be ice cream and fruits in the house when growing up, and
Question: I recently met a nice lady, Lily, and she subsequently brought her friend, Rose, along when we hungout. During the course of the day and subsequent interactions with them however, I realized I had a lot more in common with Rose, and am now more attracted to her.
How do I proceed without hurting Lily’s feelings, and also without missing a potential life mate in Rose. – A tale of two ladies
Answer: This is a dicey one, as hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, especially considering the two ladies are friends. Eventually however, the points to consider are; 1) How close they both are to each other, 2) How
