The Pre-Foreword Written In Past Present Tense

On the 1st of April 2008, I was given an appointment with a company called S.L.A.V.E. Inc to work with them as a Trainee Biomedics Engineer. This blog is about my experience there. 

Working for S.L.A.V.E. Inc wasn’t actually my first taste of paid employment; during my Industrial Training days I had worked in the Engineering section of a major soft drinks bottling company and also served the nation as a Science Teacher in a secondary school during the mandatory NYSC service year. My relationship with SLAVE Inc however, has been radically different.

Over the course of the months I have worked there I have written a couple of posts about several incidents and people I have met there. These posts therefore form the basis of this blog.

By the time you read this, I would most probably have left my job and maybe moved on to something else and so I’ve had to re-write most of my posts in what I call the Past-Present tense to capture a timeline that was once the present but is now past. Some of the stuff you are going to read on this blog may therefore be a bit confusing chronologically.

Some other things you’re going to read here have also been superficially altered but only for reasons of privacy. The names for example, and certain geographical locations have been changed where necessary so as not to cause embarrassment to the parties concerned. The gist however remains the same and as true as I can tell it from my point of view.

So many words have already gone by so I think it’s best right now to start at the very beginning.

“Story, story…”


“Once upon a time in an Office far far away…”


  1. Damn boy! You are 'sasha fierce!'

  2. @ SSD: I can't wait either! LOL

    @ ESQ: Sorry, guess I never went to the Beyonce Slang School. What's "Sasha Fierce"? Apart from her album title, that is...
