You’re My Little Secret….. January 5, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — FlawedBeauty @ 12:01 am

Here at SSSO we enjoy having guest post from fellow bloggers and commenters.  Today we’re going to feature a guest post from none of than Ms. 80s Baby… Enjoy!

You’re my little secret and that’s how we should keep it……….

I’m not Xscape but I’m 80’s Baby and I have a secret. I’ve never really had to keep a secret so this is all new to me. This secret has been weighing me down and when it was fresh I felt like a black cloud was constantly following me. However, I’m currently like 8 months into my secret so I’ve pretty much accepted the situation and it’s nothing I can do about it except come clean.

So here it goes…..On 5/14/08 I traveled to my hometown for the weekend. I arrived at my friend’s apt and I remember sitting on the couch and because of my keychain my work keys were uncomfortable in my pocket so I took them out and laid them on the table. The weekend went on and I went out with my friends and spent time with my family. The weekend’s over and I go back to work on Monday and our office suite is locked. So I dig in my purse. No keys. So I just borrow someone else’s and I’m thinking they’re in my car. Check my car. No keys. Check my luggage. No keys. So I’m like oh, I must have left them at my friends. Call my friends to check their apt for my keys. No luck. So I’m thinking they didn’t look good and I know my keys are over there.

Maybe I should mention I work at a medical facility and we have two huge divisions. I didn’t have a master key but I still had a general key and the key for those in my respective section. So for that week I mentioned to my coworkers I left my keys at home. One coworker decides to tell me that a Dr. had lost a master key and every door in both buildings had to be rekeyed and it cost over $300,000. At that point I got kind of scared. So it took a couple of weeks before I went home again but when I did I searched my friend’s apt. up and down and never found the keys. Then reality sunk in. No keys.

People get to work before me so I can get in our suite and I can get through my office by cutting through somebody else’s office. However, my main problem has been getting in the bathroom. We have a spare key for the bathroom but it’s kept in another lady’s office and she was peeping me using it so when she mentioned something to me about it I realized she was on to me. So now when she go smoke I go help myself to the bathroom key. The one other black person in my dept is the only one who knows I lost my keys so I borrow his bathroom keys when I can’t get to our spare key.

I’ve been dealing with this since May and every time I got the nerve to confess to my supervisor I couldn’t go through with it. In November, I received word that my supervisor’s supervisor was retiring in January. So I decided when she retires then I’ll come clean because only my supervisor will have to deal with it. So now the time is approaching and I’m more nervous than ever. Before you ask these keys can’t be duplicated and they’re numbered so it ain’t nothing I can do except confess. So there is my secret. My work keys are long gone.

I know I’m not the only one with a secret. So what about you? What are you hiding? Do you have any secrets that you plan to confess in 09? Now is your turn to come clean……

  1. That is soooo scary 80s! Is this a key code system, where you punch in codes to get the doors open? If so, it can’t be that expensive.. my old job used to change the code EVERY TIME someone got fired. And trust, they did NOT have it like that!

    I don’t have any secrets. Nicki is pretty boring. 😦

  2. 80's Baby Says:

    @Nick…. It’s not a key code system it’s 2 regular keys. But all the doors around here remained lock majority of the time. I don’t know if it’s because of the patients roaming or what.

    One key was pretty much a general key that unlocked the bathrooms, mailroom, and etc that pretty much all employees had. And the other key was for pretty much the people in my section.

    I’m just nervous because I don’t know what all will have to be rekeyed…My coworker says the bathrooms and stuff probably won’t have to be just the doors within our section and that’s at least about 30 doors right there….

  3. “I’m just nervous because I don’t know what all will have to be rekeyed…My coworker says the bathrooms and stuff probably won’t have to be just the doors within our section and that’s at least about 30 doors right there….”

    Don’t worry.. What I’ve learned is that coworkers have the same ethic as the 6:00 news… they love to operate on fear.

    I can’t tell you how many times at previous jobs, you’d hear, so and so is gonna get fired, we’re not making any money and are about to get laid off, etc.

    People like to incite fear for some reason.

  4. I don’t get it…will they make you pay?

    Lawd…I would be in total anxiety every time I went to work…I would not be able to do it.

  5. 80's Baby Says:

    I don’t get it…will they make you pay?

    @Jac…I certainly don’t hope so but I don’t know… A few weeks ago I heard a conversation about an employee who lost their cell phone and they are making him pay for it…

  6. 80's Baby Says:

    Oh and when the dr. lost his keys… They didn’t make him pay for it. But I ain’t no freaking dr…. LOL

  7. thecomebackgirl Says:

  8. Cuzzo Says:

    @CBG

  9. cuzzo Says:

  10. “i guess one i haven’t blogged about is that white boys seem to be digging me sorta. im not sure what thats about. maybe its the weave LOL.”

  12. cuzzo Says:

  13. thecomebackgirl Says:

    “I don’t go around announcing I don’t know how to drive”

    ??????…you need me to teach you Miss Daisy?..sike i know you lived in new york.

  14. cuzzo Says:

    “sike i know you lived in new york.”

    thanks you, some people don’t understand that it’s a legitimate excuse.

  15. ““sike i know you lived in new york.”

    thanks you, some people don’t understand that it’s a legitimate excuse.”

    My homegirl, didn’t have a car until she moved to Baltimore… she is from Manhattan…

  16. The Notorious N.M.H. Says:

    I have a lot, most of which will be taken to the grave…one I can share happened years ago. Me and this guy were cool, he was crushing on this girl we knew really tough, doing all kinds of stuff for her. Me and the girl ended up getting to be friends since she was always around us. I guess dude started to get jealous or something and he changed toward me, and we ended up falling out over some BS. I originally had no intentions on being s3xual with the girl but just to spite him I laid pipe on her something serious, making extra effort to totally smut her out. Anyway later dude apologizes profusely and we got cool again, and he continues courting the girl. So for a while he would be out with her kissing her and showing her off as his woman, and I never said anything to him about it. We basically grew apart over the years and I have no idea what happened to him or her.

  17. cuzzo Says:

    hey moderator – can we be judgemental?

  18. “just to spite him I laid pipe on her something serious”

    LMAO… Something serious, huh?

    If he would’ve found out, he prolly wouldn’t have talked to her anymore… he would’ve been angry at you for a while but would recover. He’d never recover from her… men seem to be this way.

  19. The Notorious N.M.H. Says:

    “LMAO… Something serious, huh?”

    Yeah in revenge I had to go above and beyond normal piping.

    “He’d never recover from her… men seem to be this way.”

    Pretty much, something sort of similar happened to me and I was mad at my boy for a few hours but we were cool, I was pissed at the girl for a few weeks.

  20. “Yeah in revenge I had to go above and beyond normal piping.”

    **shivers****

    “Pretty much, something sort of similar happened to me and I was mad at my boy for a few hours but we were cool, I was pissed at the girl for a few weeks.”

    see now, can u delve into the male psyche and explain this phenomena my good sir? 😉

  21. cuzzo Says:

    “see now, can u delve into the male psyche and explain this phenomena my good sir? ”

    i got this…cuz girls are supposed to be made of sugar and spice and everything nice. men, snails and puppy dog tails…u expect the worst from the male…not the female.

  22. 80's Baby Says:

    @ no more…..You are a mess….. So if the normal piping is spitting skittles and diamonds then what you spitting when you go above and beyond?????

  23. “i got this…cuz girls are supposed to be made of sugar and spice and everything nice. men, snails and puppy dog tails…u expect the worst from the male…not the female.”

    I’m thinking u have a point Cuzzo…

    Do u agree NoMore?

  24. The Notorious N.M.H. Says:

    “see now, can u delve into the male psyche and explain this phenomena my good sir? ;)”

    Bro’s before hoes.

    But seriously I’m going to be more mad at the woman because ultimately it was up to her to not do it. She was the one whom the romantic connection was with. Thats the person you ahould be mad at. Its like when girls get mad at the girl with whom the man cheated with rather than the actual man who cheated. You should be more mad at the person whom you had the romantic connection with and who couldve not given it up.

  25. The Notorious N.M.H. Says:

    Plus in my case I really couldnt get too mad at my boy, this was high school and ol girl liked both of us. No man was going to turn down some azz too many times.

    80’s: I dont know, Ill have to think on that one.

  26. The Notorious N.M.H. Says:

    “Do u agree NoMore?”

    No. I expect women to be just as thirsty as men. I’ve seen both sexes do crazy stuff.

  27. 80's Baby Says:

    Umm cuzzo and nicki where yall secrets???

    I know yall got something..

  28. cuzzo Says:

    I don’t know how to drive….that’s all your getting from me.

  29. 80's Baby Says:

    @ cuzzo… That ain’t no secret… Lol

  30. cuzzo Says:

    I wear wigs…how about that?

    (even though i have a weave in now)

  31. AnitraClark Says:

    I don’t have any secrets yet but can someone tell me why my font looks like someone on ssso need bifocals ???

  32. “You should be more mad at the person whom you had the romantic connection with and who couldve not given it up.”

    I def agree with this!

    80s: I don’t have any secrets.. I’m sitting up here trying to think and I’m coming up blank…

    Oh God. I do have a really startling secret who I’ve never told ANYONE.. it is so embarrasing. And it must go to the grave.

  33. Mik, I don’t know what’s going on with yours… I think er’body else can see!!!!!

  34. 80's Baby Says:

    Well since yall being secretive I got another one…… I was a victim of a pyramid scheme.. And the sad thing about it is I got got by some pastors….. This man just kept hounding me and my friend. So finally I gave in so they could get off my back and because I was like the pastors ain’t gonna intentionally lead me astray… Ha Ha…. It was a scam…. And I had told a couple of people that I did it but I never told how much I paid in the beginning…. Luckily I was keeping up with investigation because the attorney general had stepped in and I was able to get my money back. To this day my sis still asks occasionally to see if I will slip up and tell her… But nope, not happening.

  35. “And the sad thing about it is I got got by some pastors…”

    @80s: I think this is the funniest thing ever!!!! Dang, I pastor!!!!

    Girl, my secret is so embarrasing that I’ve only told three folks… one of them is involved so that’s how she knows.

    I don’t want this one traced back on the blog!!!!!

  36. Junior Says:

    My secret….I stole the cookie from the cookie jar. But, if my hands in the cookie jar, know one thing, I’m going to take the cookie not leave my ring.

    I also like Green Eggs and Ham, I do like them Sam I am.

  37. Junior: WTF is wrong with you? LOL.

    wasn’t that cookie jar thing a kids song?

  38. 80's Baby Says:

    Singing

    All together: Junior stole the cookie from the cookie jar
    Junior: Who me
    All of us: Yes you
    Junior: Not me
    All of us: Then who

    lol

  39. That’s it 80s!!!!! LOL

  40. Junior Says:

    Yeah it was, but I couldn’t resist cause I couldn’t think of any secrets that wouldn’t put me in jail.

    @ Nicki, yes it was a kids song as 80’s pointed out, but then I added a little Jay-z swag to it :).

  41. Junior I refuse to believe you’ve done dirt to land u in a cell.

  42. cuzzo Says:

    I don’t like to read…there you go.

    I think I was in a pyramid scheme, so to speak. Is that the same as multi-level marketing? It’s new fancy term.

    Like we were supposed to be selling a product but really they want you to build a team and get ppl to pay to be sellers. But they make it seem like you own part of the business. Everything is so secretive. I’m out maybe $250…so long ago, I don’t even remember. may have been more.

  43. “Like we were supposed to be selling a product but really they want you to build a team and get ppl to pay to be sellers. But they make it seem like you own part of the business. Everything is so secretive. I’m out maybe $250…so long ago, I don’t even remember. may have been more.”

    That is indeed a pyramid.

  44. cuzzo Says:

    ah, did they used to be called bunko schemes too? or potsie? where’s the lawyer?

  45. 80's Baby Says:

    @ cuzzo…If it’s anything where the money I get depends on how many people I can bring on then my scheme alert radar starts going off…. But I was out more than 250 before I got it back…. I tried to tell my friend what to do to get her money back but she wasn’t on it and had chalked it up as a loss… But once I told her I got my money back then she was like so what I gotta do… LOL

  46. cuzzo Says:

    dang, my friend is about to do something like this, and he’s such a smart dude. he seems real excited about it too. i don’t wanna tell him i think it’s a scam. you know how they give you a schpeal about ppl will be trying to tell you it’s a scam and blase blah. brainwashing i tell ya.

  47. 80's Baby Says:

    After it happened I think I was embarrassed than anything and that’s why I didn’t tell how much I had I actually paid in the beginning…

    I think the few secrets that I kept were a result of being embarrassed. And that’s another reason why I haven’t said anything about the keys…. I don’t want to be “that one” who lost her keys… Even though that’s the reality of the situation..lol

  48. 80's Baby Says:

    @ cuzzo…. I think you should tell him to make sure he go out there and do his research…. Because these schemes are not cheap!!!! Heck, they’re getting more and more expensive.

  49. I think u should tell him too!!!!

  50. cuzzo Says:

    see the thing is he didn’t tell me directly that he was doing it…i overheard him talking to another friend about it (on the phone) and on one of those conference calls.

    and that was weeks ago.

  51. Now it’s a shaky situation… u wouldn’t want him to think u were eavesdropping… can u hint around for him to get to tell u?

  52. 80's Baby Says:

    This is a shaky situation…. And it’s probably gonna be one of his secrets after he gets got!!! Because afterwards you be like how was I so stupid to even fall for this in the first place….

  53. Junior Says:

    @ Nicki, don’t judge this book by its cover, don’t let the looks fool you 🙂

    @ Cuzzo, I think you would be referencing a Ponzi scheme. And throw that in his face, eavesdropping or night, its better than jail!

  54. cuzzo Says:

    @junior

    even the little people can go to jail for it? if you sign up and recruit people, unknowing that it’s a scam….

  55. thecomebackgirl Says:

    thats cute how yall ask for a lawyer and Junior comes…he’s in house counsel.

  56. cuzzo Says:

    yes, yes. you need a lawyer for everything girl. we got all kinds experts up in here. 80’s knows about dealing with customer service and whatnot. Jada will quote a scripture with the quickfastness.

  57. Junior Says:

    No, I think what you described is more just a multi-level pyramid scheme, not a ponzi scheme. but if my memory serves me correctly. I don’t think you can be held liable either for being gullible and susceptible, I think you have to be one of the people knowing perpetuating the scheme. Don’t quote me though, but I’m like 95% sure that basically if you don’t start it, you are ok

  58. I have a secret but I had to wait til late in the day to say it. I have a little *clears throat* crush on a person…and I sort of umm *bows head* might have done a bad thing or two…

  59. “@ Nicki, don’t judge this book by its cover, don’t let the looks fool you ”

    Junior, u need more people… or more details. LOL

    Jac: I need more information.

  60. Let’s just say I am more than willing to sho-do whatever necessary to ride the pony…deep in the batcave.

  61. Junior Says:

    @ Nikki Sigh, ok, I was just fronting like Pharell….:-p

  62. LOL, Junior…

    Ohmygoodness… I knew it.. I can see it in your picture. 😉

    What Jac??? You are harder to figure out than a Toni Morrison book. Help a sista out!

  63. cuzzo Says:

    i owe sallie mae maaaad money

  64. 80's Baby Says:

    i owe sallie mae maaaad money

    @cuzzo…is this a secret… If it is I got another secret too than because my student loans ain’t the business..lol

  65. I am still collecting student loans! How about that.

  66. cuzzo Says:

    @ 80’s

    the real secret is embarrassing…i avoid them like the plague!

  67. Sallie Mae is making me move back to Alabama.

  68. Oh and my secret is I wanna f*ck somebody.

  69. Cuzzo Says:

    ^^not a secret Jac

  70. Thanks CUZZO. Not a secret. LMAO

  71. Junior Says:

    ^^^^^^Agreed

  72. Jac. It looks like we’re all on to you, mahdear.
