|Was I Wrong? by purples25(f): 6:38am On Nov 09, 2021
For those who care to dissect the situation.
I'm putting this down before heading to work.
On Sunday I was ill. With the intention that I would have to show up at work on Monday, I forced myself to get up and go to a salon to make my hair. On the way I nearly ran back home because I was very nauseous and weak.
Sunday Evening: I still had to force myself to cook for the FAM, before covering myself up due to the fever/malaria. My family was concerned, told me to let my boss know that I cannot show up on Monday. Instead I asked my boss if I could come in late. Boss agreed.
Monday morning: While wondering how I would eventually get up and go late to work, a colleague called to say I should stay home and rest, they have discussed it with the boss that I can totally take the day off. I was glad , took my drugs and rested.
4:00 pm, same Monday: I was feeling a lot better. A friend came to see me because of my health and I was glad. Since I felt okay now, I accompanied my friend out of the house and even took some pictures of me sitting on a bench with that person. I was very happy that someone cared.
4:30 : I posted those pictures on whatsapp with the caption : 'Coming to see my when I'm Ill, I really appreciate that.'
Monday Evening: Here comes the shock. A colleague called asking how I was. I replied innocently that I was better, took my drugs and all that.
My colleague said everyone has seen the pictures (like I was 'caught in the act' or something). That a sick person can't post pictures. That I should bring the chicken I enjoyed to the office the next day.
I was dumbfounded. That someone saw and called everyone's attention saying 'Look who said she was ill, posting pictures' Like I posted myself in the club or something. My colleague that told me just acted like I scammed everyone, that the posting was wrong. That if the MD had seen it i might be in trouble. This is a picture of my friend and I sitting on a bench.
Question: Was it bad that by 4:00pm, I was better and able to walk around? Was it bad that by 4:30 I posted pictures with me looking better, with a friend who came to visit? I'm expected at work today, was I supposed to be ill all through yesterday? Work closes by 5:30, was I supposed to dress up and start coming to work by that 4:00 because I felt better? I don't get it.
Please share your opinions. I'll read later.

There's nothing bad in you posting a pix of you and your colleague after getting better on whatsapp. Just know that you have an enemy at your place of work.
This will teach you to be careful and not to try such again so as to avoid stories that touch.

It's what you get when you post every tiny detail of your life on SM. Learn your lessons.

Tbh, seems like it hasnt gotten to your head yet, not to trust anyone. Keep posting every single thing about your life...

Social media in this part of the world is more of a tool to monitor people. Just a few know it's purpose and usefulness. A life of low-key is a wise approach to social media usage for those who want less problems to be added to the already available problems of life.
About your colleague who showed others, lol, you are taking the wrong approach. The right approach is no one really loves you, love God and leave the rest to Him. It might even be the person that called you that is the chief of the operation.
