“Helping others is the way we help ourselves. We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.”

Quote source

Some people will always amaze me and it's always exciting when you can get to move close to some people so you can know who they are and perhaps, listen to them while they narrate their funny experiences which would make you realize that some humans are strange in their behaviour to others. I was chanced to listen to a lady's experience yesterday and I wonder what kind of being she crossed paths with. Things wouldn't stop amazing me too.

I went for Bible study in Church and being the last Tuesday of the month, it's all about question and answer time. You get to bring those questions disturbing your mind about the scripture and some people are ready and willing to answer you satisfactorily. This is why I love spending time with other Christians who understand a bit of the scripture and just like every Tuesday, it's always a digging deep into the word of God.

Some questions were being asked and answers were given which sounds okay to the one who asked, plus another knowledge to those listening. A lady raised her hands with a question in her mind but started with an experience she encountered.

You know there are some people that when you help them willingly, they would act to the extent that you regret helping them because they take it like they never sent you to do that for them. It's always sucking to me but as a child of God, we need not be bothered but continue doing what we are always doing in the best way.

According to the lady, there is this neighbour of hers where she stays. Whenever this neighbour spreads her clothes on the wire and she isn't around. When it's about to rain, since this lady is always around, she would help her neighbour to pack them inside so the rain will not beat them. When the neighbour returns, she would be like “Why can't you fold my clothes for me?” So hilarious 🤣

Like seriously? Someone who helped you out of her goodwill and you made her feel she made a mistake helping you pack your clothes and you still want her to fold them for you even without a thank you? Nah!

The girl said after a while, she made up her mind that even if the flood is taking her clothes away, she won't help her anymore because she isn't grateful. She asked if such decision is good?

Though, I understand this lady because if it was me, I won't even do the kindness of helping her pack her clothes again but looking at it again, we have to keep helping people no matter who they are. We can only tolerate their attitudes for a while then we can just speak to them so they can know what they are doing bad and if such behaviour should keep repeating, then, I think one has to avoid them.

Some people are so funny because that neighbour's behaviour isn't welcome at all. If your clothes were left in the rain, there is nothing you can do to others who are around because they know what you are capable of doing. Not being grateful and you still want such a person to fold them for you? It's wrong to act to me in that way.


One thing about life, though we started together, we cannot finish together due to different circumstances in our lives. For some, death will happen. For some, perhaps they do not have the financial capability to continue and so, they retreat. For some, it might be they're not been serious and taking things with levity hands or for granted. And the list goes on like that.

Why am I saying this? A drafted graduating list came out last night and many people won't be graduating with us due to different reasons. Some are dead while some were terminated from being students while others carried the course over. For another set of people, they need to resolve the issue with the department before the real list will be out since the system didn't record their names even though they sat for the exam.

I saw a friend of mine who repeated a course and it hurt me but life hasn't ended, right? Not graduating with us doesn't mean the end of life but picking themselves up and working towards graduating with the next set.


There are some people I am following on Noise.app but I can't comment on their posts. I will be able to do that if you kindly follow me by clicking this link

Thanks for your time.

Exactly. At least she could have uttered a thank you even if you have to say that rude word.

I think it depends on how close they are. Even if they are close, let me just assume that she said it playfully. Honestly, I am not alright 😅. If someone tries that with me, I'll soak the clothes again in water😅. But we just have to keep helping people not because we want them to help us back or because we want them to feel indebted to us but because we need to put a smile on people's faces.

That rude lady is lucky that she has a good neighbor. There compounds you stay, everything there is mind your business. If you know that you're not going to be around, you don't dare put your clothes outside or else........

Some people are just ungrateful noatter what we do for them. It is hard to keep being nice especially when your effort is not appreciated.

You are right. For such people, if we talk to them about it and refused to change, just turn around with helping someone else. It's as simple as that.

Don't mind her. Some people are just so funny but it's bad attitude anyway.

For the lady to utter such words, I'm sure that they're very close because it's rare to for an ordinary neighbor to say such to someone she's not familiar with. I mean, it's like they are good friends and you know, there are ways our friends talk to us 🤗

That was really a weird way of appreciating her neighbour's effort and she took it so lightly. Imagine if she didn't help her remove her clothes from the line, how it would have been. In life we just need to be grateful.

A shocking one. She demanded some thing after she didn't even say thank you which is totally wrong. The person helped her, she must be grateful but what she did she demanded her clothes to be fold princess.

She was wrong because she could have been grateful at least. She won't do anything if no one helped to pack her clothes.

People and their entitlement mentality. Next time the neighbor wouldn't make an attempt to pack the woman's cloth when it's raining. And if confronted by the woman later, she should just tell her that she was sleeping while it was raining. After all, most people do sleep when it rains.
