On this Friday morning, John woke up hurriedly and prepared for work. He works in a busy institution and was expected early at work. His wife works a short distance from where her husband’s office is.
As a result of this, John unknowingly carried his wife's mobile phone leaving behind his own. After he had gone his wife, Jane noticed the mix-up but it was too late for her to do anything about it. She thought for a while and decided to carry her husband's phone in case he came back for it.
On arriving at his place of work, John noticed that he had confused his wife's phone for his, but decided not to go back for it. He sighed deeply because he knew his wife could access romantic messages sent by his many mistresses.
His wife too was disgusted because she had several toy boys.
Drama began to unfold when John received an SMS intended for his wife sent by somebody saved as ‘Peter-Taxi’, which read, "Hi sweetie, ope yo monin’ is fine, 4 me am okay just mad! My love 4 you kills me. I couldn't stop dreaming about you even after we met last evening coz you hold the password to ma heart." John was shocked to see this and thought he understood why his wife had come home late the previous evening. He decided to stay mum to see what more would come.
After one hour he received another SMS from somebody saved as ‘Susan-Salon’ which read, “Monin darling, ope ur fine, am also fine but not so fine without seeing you next to me coz you control every part of ma heart. Nice day sweetie, see you at lunch.”
The third SMS ticked in from somebody saved as ‘Winnie-Handbags’ which read, "Monin ma beautiful queen, I wish you were a gum, I would chew you every time, you make me feel young like I was born yesterday, you without whom I would go on a hunger strike. Have a bright day ma dear."
John was deeply shocked by these messages but knew that on the other side his wife might be seeing drama too.
Meanwhile, Jane had seen even more than her husband. She had received three messages from three women that clearly showed they were his mistresses. The first SMS was from a woman saved as ‘Ochieng-Car wash’ which read, “Hi dear how's ur monin? 4 me am okay with ur son here, he says he loves you so much n you should come n stay with us. gday."
Jane almost fainted on seeing this because she could not believe that her husband had a son outside marriage.
Before her anger was over, she received a second SMS from' ‘Omosh-Kinyozi’ which read, “Monin ma dear, ope ur enjoyin ur day. Mine can't be complete without you. Every time I sleep in this house you bought 4 me I dream 2 love u always. The BM u bought me is perfect on road. Thanks, g’day.”
The last message came from ‘Karanja-Electician’ and read, “Sasa honey? Ope uko poa, mimi niko fiti hapa campo, lakini nikumiss sana . But honey kuna doh tunadaiwa za project 40k, nita come unishow vile tutalipa. Nice day love you big.”
Jane had found the answer to why her husband was always penniless!
When evening came, John and Jane met at home. They could hardly talk but only stared at each other with suspicion.
Then trouble began, and I was called to intervene. Sincerely, what would you have told them?
