The association of married and pregnant women holds its meetings twice a week. I don’t have a problem with that, except for the minor fact that they unfailingly decide to set up camp across the room from my pod at work. No, my character has not being impugned in any way – I am neither responsible, nor even remotely implicated, but their choice of venue riles me…

The topics covered are varied, but time after time they settle on being pregnant and being hot…… They can be excused – the oldest of them is twenty-six and they’re all first timers.. looking to work as long as possible before they hit the motherhood trail…. For the hour they meet, all we get to hear is trimesters, weight gain, gym routines for pregnant women… and a whole slew of designers I’ve never heard of…

If only, we had not gone ‘open plan’, I’d simply have shut my door and spared my ears the trouble….. God dey o!

  4. lol I was going to say the same thing as Ms. O and it seems most of us were thinking the same thing.

    Alternatively, you can invest in some good noise cancelling headphones and drown out the noises that way…

  7. LOL…Jeez I feel for you. Office chit chat can be annoying but the best way is to start your own chitchat routine with a few pals you work with…talk about basketball brackets….or fantasy football or baseball…it drives women nuts!


  8. I am so torn between being compassionate and bursting into evil female laughter. I'll stick with compassion as I have just been subjected to listening to a colleague's loud 25 min conversation on the phone. Headphones all the way.

    PS You do know though that when your Halle Berry looking, akara making Queen becomes pregnant you will remember this post and wished you had listened to those women more often right?
