Are You Here?

A ‘Ghanaianism’ for “do you live/work here?” So, a young man in originally black or brown (can’t tell which) jeans walked up to me at Zenith Bank to ask. Maybe it was my ‘bankeresque’ snazzy suit. I aimed at him with my purest poker face, and then sneered, “If you can see me standing here, then I must be here!”


  1. looool no..Im there would have been a "nicer" response

  2. @ Yngvild: Glad you find it funny.

    @ JuaNita: I agree it is a "nicer" response. :-(

  3. Nana Yaw--chaley; you be hard! That's a more discreet way of putting it; I would have been harder!!

  4. eeeei,Nana

    That's quite a response... happened to me just a couple of days ago at Melcom plus and I must sa i was much less gracious to the elderly woman... I just didnt see the resemblance between me and the mall attendants.

  7. @ Anon: Yes, me.

    @ Kwame Mensa-Bonsu: These things happen to all of us all the time. I only have a notebook in which I chronicle them.

    @ Kobby Asamoa: Hey man, wish you'd come here more. At Melcom, huh? Still cannot imagine you losing your head.
