Scariest 5 mins of my life!

On Friday evening, I was at the train station on my way to a friend’s wedding at Sheffield. I was sitting “jeje-ly”, minding my own business, when one guy (probably from the eastern part of the world) beside me asked me if I was still around for the next 5 mins. I said yes and then he asked me to please watch over his bag cuz he wanted to go to the gents. I said yes automatically.

As soon as he left, an alarm went off in my head. "What if this guy has a bomb in his bag"? Men, I started to panic! I jumped off my seat and stood at a distance, still watching the bag. Then it occurred to me that if indeed there was a bomb in his bag and it went off, I will still be blown into pieces despite me standing at a distance. Men now I was really scared. I started to pray “Father, please don’t let there be a bomb in this man’s bag, please God I beg, I don’t want to die like this!!!”. It was not funny at all, I tell you! Thankfully the man came back from the gents and I scrammed. Funny enough he was on the same train with me.

Later on, I felt bad for suspecting the guy especially because he looked like them (y’all know who I am talking about). But men u can’t blame me now, this world has so turned into a scary place…Or what do you guys think?

  1. I'll be scared to my dear i seriously don't blame you but i am curious and would have taken a little look to see what's in the bag.The other day this dude sat next to me with the long beard and their long outfit with a bag he was also reading the quran and was acting all weird. I Was scared oh, i got off at the next stop. Its human instinct.

  2. Lol. There's a co-worker like 'them' who's so fond of me. I know its wrong but those 'thoughts' cross my mind when he's with me. We live in a strange world my dear, only natural to react that way.

  3. Lol..... Don't worry u won't die like that, and you still have many years ahead. But next time let them know you can't for security reasons.

  4. I don't think u should agree to watch anyone's bag in a place like that (train station, airport) regardless of how they look like. You never know. It's the people that you are the least likely to suspect that do stuff.

  6. @londonnaijachic-u actually dropped off at the next stop...omo i feel u...lol..

    @aijay- men! I'll freak out if any of them even looked at me somehow, not to talk fondness.....lol

    @rinsola, bubbles, writefreak- thanks for your advice o my people. To be honest I am not sure why I said yes cuz on a good day I would have explictly said "sorry I can't watch your bag, for security reasons". I guess I was too tired to think straight! I'll be more careful next time.

  8. I couldn't help but to laugh, but at the same time I felt your pain. I would have done the same thing. The only thing different is that I would have spoke in tonuges faster then I ever have. The good thing is that it didn't happen and you are still here.

  10. LOL!!! This comes from watching too much "24", I would say. Next time call CTU. But seriously, if there was a bomb and he wanted it to go off, he wouldn't have told you to look after it ... he would just have left it there and gone to activate the detonator. I can imagine you fidgeting and standing far away from the back praying and I can't stop laughing. ROTFLMAO!
