My handphone rang, i answered and over the other end of the line, he asked if i was free to talk, surely i said ok for a friend.then something this friend of my said really gave me a shock of my life, suddenly i felt like i was being accused of something that was so damning and culpable of a death sentence....... to be frank i was really shocked to say the least.
Then he began with something like this,," Hey Eugene, do you want to find fault with me ka, if you do just let me know?" i was speechless, didn' t know what was wrong at this juncture, then he continued," or do you want to prove that you are so good in computer, that you could find my wife in FB?" i was even lost then, i cooly interrupted him," Hey friend, what is this and what did i do wrong?"
He kept repeating the same two questions, before he made himself clear to me and he began to fire his salvo at me when he said this." why did you want to add my wife in facebook, you know that i dont like my wife keeps fiddling with his broadband phone with all this facebook stuff, i really dont like this,you know?" i could sense his frustration and his anger and i did not want to enrage him further to prove my ignorance (that he hates FB so much,) or my innocence ( cos i really feel that's nothing wrong in adding a friend's wife in my FB and have many friends' wives in my FB.
I was telling myself to calm down,(if i were to be my oldself, i would have really retaliated to prove my innocence,lest anybody accusing me,but now with God's grace i am a better man now"
I said i was so sorry that i did not know my action of adding his wife into my FB could infuriate him to this extent, profusely i said i was sorry and telling him that he could ask his wife to ignore my request.
I really dont understand this, we know one another, my wife and myself know both of them, we are friends, albeit not close but we are still friends and i really feel sad that this action of mine has caused some disharmony in my friend and his wife. I know i am innocent but then again i cannot undone what is done, can i?
This incident really thought me one thing, it really takes a long time to know a true friend or the true color of a friend.
Note: I hope he can still see me as his friend.............
P/S : To diffuse, sometime saying sorry is neccessary even if it is unneccessary...........
