Not making it to the two major events I had hoped to attend outside the country.
Facing some unscrupulous clients in which it took me a lot of restraints not to hurt their feelings in a way I'm capable of, and especially because someone's intimate relationship was at stake. And so, I had to take in some crass comments about my person. (Tolerance is a virtue).
A tiff at work (a certain Tunde, amidst other skirmishes, threw at me the most laughable jab that my angst is because I "wasn't promoted." This will still play out unless... !). Even worse was the most unnecessary & stupid apology I was compelled to make.
Of a generational issue that manifested in form of an MD who, being ignorant of what "epic sh*t" means, embarrassed me. (I was only propping up a team).
Every time I was in Lagos traffic!
