God Services

I was assisting an employee in filling out recruitment papers for staff on the field.

She went through a long list of people to hire:
-A Secretary in Benin,
-Business Development Officer and Driver in Mali,
-God Services in Senegal,
-Program Officer in Niger.

I dutifully write this down and do a double-take at the “God Services”. Rather idiotically, I reply “God Services? Is that even possible?”. Instinctively, I wonder how much we’ve budgeted for that.

She doesn’t flinch and repeats “Guards services, we need guard services”.

D’uh.

ROTFL :) That's hilarious! It's too bad, because we really do need God services :)

THAT is what happens when you spend too much time in Africa. Everything becomes a possibility.

I appreciate the irony, though ! ;O)
