when i looked in my account,
i only had 5 dollars.
damn near about to be over drafted soon.
it all stemmed from having to buy a mta card that same morning.
it left me complete pretty much…
you already know.
two weeks until i even see another check.
at that point,
i just tried to remain happy and remember that i have a job.
“tough times don’t last forever…”
as i sat in the cafeteria,
here i see mr. green walking up to me.
i’m always happy to see him.
he has a very kind disposition about him.
well he was visiting the office today and had a couple meetings i booked on the calendar.
“why are you not eating jamari?”
“honestly i don’t have any money.”
“oh no that’s not good.
are you hungry?”
at that point,
i felt like i was a beggar.
all i needed was a cup,
and a monkey that danced as i played the keyboard.
i pointed to the atm over in the corner.
he went over,
withdrew some money,
and came back over to me.
so i thought he was gonna give me the 20 in his hand.
he gave me 80 dollars.
80 fuckin dollars.
“take your time.
i’ve been in your position before.
i know whats it like.
you are doing a good job as well.
so i told a homeboy on the phone what he did for me.
this asshole gon’ say:
“why would you take money from your boss?
n*gga i dunno about that.”
which is when i kindly let him have it:
when you step up AS A FRIEND and volunteer to help YOUR FRIEND,
you can fuckin’ talk to me on what to do.
its a shame a complete stranger with a kind heart had to help YOUR FRIEND today.
as a friend,
you should be extremely embarrassed.
you like to talk about how you bought this,
and paid for some bitch this to get some pussy for that.
you have no time to help your friends.
let some bird brain bitch come in the picture tho,
your wallet is open ready to throw the bird seed on the ground.
get all the way the fuck out my face with the bullshit.”
yeah uh huh.
trying to ruin my moment with the bullshit.
then gonna say i never asked.
i gotta train people to be good people?
i hope he calls me with an issue about some bitch.
watch him ask my voice mail.
