In the kitchen, you hear only your name

Olu is a house boy who drinks his boss’ wine and then adds water for cover up. His boss became suspicious and decided to buy pasties ( A french wine that change colour if water added).

As usual, olu drank the pasties and topped it up with water. Unfortunately for him, the pasties changed colour. When the boss came back home and notice the colour change, he told his wife about it.

Olu knew he was in trouble and decided to stay in the kitchen.

The boss shouted, “olu!!!”

olu answered..”Yes, Sir!”

Boss.. “Who drank the pasties?”


olu didn’t respond.

The boss ask again, still no answer. Then the boss went to the kitchen to confront him. “Are you insane or what? When I called you, you said ‘Yes Sir’, but when I asked you a question, you didn’t answer me!

Hmmm Oga, when you are in the kitchen you don’t hear anything except your name,” olu answered.


“Let’s try it. Okay go to the bar and stand beside madam, while I will stay in the kitchen. Then call me and then ask me any question,” The Boss suggested.

Olu shouted, “Boss!”

Boss answered, “Yes!”

olu asked, “Who goes into the maid’s bedroom when madam isn’t around?”

Boss didn’t answer.

Olu asked again, the Boss kept quiet.


The boss came out from the kitchen shouting, “Wonders shall never end!!!

 Olu it’s true. When one’s in the kitchen, one doesn’t hear anything except ones name”.

The wife interrupted, “That’s not true. It’s a lie”.


Without argument olu ask if she’d like to enter the kitchen to be tested and she agreed.

olu called, “Madam!

Madam answered, “Yes!”

Olu asked, “Who is Junior’s biological father? Me or boss?”

Madam rushed out of the kitchen saying, “This kitchen needs to be checked, I can’t hear anything!”

Don’t just laugh about it but think as well. Share with others, spread the message. Sin is a very shameful thing, it makes you lose your right, dignity, reputation, authority, conscience, boldness, gut, and stand. Keep away from it.
