Ah! I learned the hard way myself about two weeks ago while joking with an oyinbo colleague whom I stupidly thought was a buddy of mine.

Anyway, you know how in naija you see a good friend that has been slim for as long as you know and you then suddenly notice that she has put on some weight. Well, that's how I noticed this colleague of mine had put on some weight oo. I come in one morning to work and saw her brewing some tea in the kitchen and I went straight to her and said "girl..what are you eating? you've put on some weight". That's how this girl blew up and said in a horrible tone...thanks for pointing it out and left the kitchen mad as hell. I least expected the outburst because she strikes me as someone with a sense of humour. Apart from that, she never struck me as someone with a weight problem. If I knew she had a weight problem trust me I would never have said a thing to her. Anyways, she gets to her desk immediately and sends me an email letting me know how the comment did not sit well with her and I should think next time before commenting. I was so shocked at the seriousness of it all and immediately replied with my apologies.
The ridiculous thing about the whole issue was that two days later our supervisor comes to me and tells me that this colleague of mine whom I thought was my buddy had reported me to her and had asked her(my supervisor) to speak to me as she did not appreciate my comment. Imagine! even after I apologized to this girl, she stil went ahead and reported me probably expecting me to suffer consequencies. Gosh! I usually don't trust oyinbo people but this just confirms to me that one needs to be very careful with the way one jokes with them. She has not spoken to me till date, probably hoping I will be scared and come begging because she reported me to our supervisor. I'm yet to have a true/real friend in an oyinbo person. I'm yet to.
