Conflict Of Interest #8 Minister of Religion Cheats In Exam

It has been a while since I last updated my ‘Conflict Of Interest’ series, but this story is quite interesting. I remember some time ago I wrote a blog about my experiences invigilating exams at UWI. I started invigilating again and just this week a theology student, a minster of religion was caught red-handed cheating in her examination. She had a paper of notes neatly hidden behind her ‘minister of religion’ identification card. Caught in the act of cheating she couldn’t deny it.

Fortunately for her grace was granted and she was at least allowed to complete her examination. Cheating is not a rare occurrence in examinations, but this one got a lot of attention because invigilators usually do not critically watch theology students as cheating is not expected from ministers in training. It is interesting to note though that subsequent to that event, all theology students are keenly watched during examinations.

At the end of the exam, the lecturer for the course was summoned and was making inquiries of her cheating student. The examiner asked ‘Do you think Jesus would d such a  thing?’ and the shocking reply from the student, who appeared to be in her late 50s ‘I don’t think God would want me to fail’.

Should we be critical of her simply because she is a theology student? We certainly do not make such a big deal of other cheating students. Med students cheat very frequently and they are being trained to saving lives. Should we forgive and forget and allow her to cheat 70 times 7? The criticisms are based on the expectations of a minister, can we trust her lead her church by example? Could it be she was the victim of possession and the devil made her do it?
I am in no way qualified to throw any stones, but this certainly is a conflict of interest.

Conflict Of Interest #7: Impregnating Two Women At Once – Part 1

This is a true story!

So we all know cheating is a big deal business in Jamaica. You are not a real Jamaican man until you have three ‘baby mommas’ you don’t care about.

 

So Matthew, 27, met a beautiful young lady, Samantha, 22, and wooed her panties to the floor. But other than falling in bed they fell in love and formed a ‘serious’ relationship. No one expected Matthew to joke around. But there is something powerful about vajay-jays that makes Jamaican men giddy headed. Matthew met another young lady, Sasha, mother of two children, and immediately fell into her. Of course, it was an accident. This accident happened over and over on the streets of an apparently busy highway, until the evidence of the mistake could no longer hide itself. She got pregnant. Naturally, the Jamaican thing for Matthew to do is to keep it a secret from Samantha for as many decades as possible, stressing about a possible revelation until he dies of a stroke. Okay so no big deal right? Wrong! Sasha is also in a committed relationship with the ‘father’ of her babies, a man who already questions the paternity of the children ‘given’ to him, who clearly lack the phenotypical characteristics that defines a father-child connection.

Sasha, naturally is afraid to tell her partner her big secret as he uses the machete very well and his mental stability has not been confirmed. So she presented the news to him in a brilliant fashion, ‘Babes, we havin a baby! I’m pregnant, for you’. Problem solved. We will get back to this later.

Matthew continued his relationship with Samantha and four months after Sasha got pregnant, Samantha had some good news for Matthew as well. Yes, you guessed it, Samantha found out she’s pregnant!…For ‘Matthew’.

At this point I’m sure Matthew shouted the very same profane words he did while he accidentally fell into those holes without head gear.

He eventually built the courage to tell his sisters that he got two women pregnant and without a doubt it was met with much surprise. No one else knew. Sasha’s baby, Kimberly, became Matthew’s first born and is loved by Matthew’s supportive sisters. It was a sibling secret and they kept their mother in the dark regarding the birth of Kimberly.

Months passed and Kimberly grew to become the clone of Matthew. So much so that Sasha’s physically abusive spouse is now asking for a DNA test. It is important to note that Sasha is a very close friend of the family, who often stays at the family house. Mathew had to break the secret to his mother, who resides overseas. But of course, he had to deliver the message in bite sizes. He told his mother Samantha is pregnant and was about to have his baby. Matthew’s mother was happy to hear such good news so he paused there for a bit.

This is where it gets interesting…

So Matthew’s mom decided to make a trip to Jamaica to meet her ‘first’ grand child, for whom she brought many gifts. She decided to have the entire family meet up at the family house. Samantha had just given birth to Shannele and they made the trip as well. It would have been a grand and happy time for stressed out Matthew except Sasha and Kimberly were staying at the house at the time.

Sasha and the siblings knew the whole story but the siblings eventually had to let their mother know. Much to her disappointment as she had given her heart and cash to Shanelle. It is important to note that during the visit Sasha felt so left out and unwanted, that she left. But to this day, Samantha is unaware that her child is not Matthews first.

Should he tell her knowing it would mean the end of their relationship?

Should Sasha tell her spouse?

In my view, to be honest, the truth sometimes really really hurts. Lets hope this is resolved soon, without injuries.

I can’t say I am excited to see how this story ends but it does encourage me to keep it in my pants until it rots.

I am an independent observer/advisor of the events. All names have been changed for privacy.

How To Tame A Stallion

When I speak of a stallion, I refer not to the wild uncastrated male horse. I speak not of the beasts which roam the land, eating the flora, making huge strides and embracing the freedom. I speak of the men who cannot be captured and tied by the strings of any Fallopian tube. The men who have mastered the art of seduction. The men whose names are echoed in soft slow tones on the walls of random rooms. I speak of, the cheaters.

So ladies, your male partner has been cheating on you. You question his reason. You visit Aldeam’s blog to find out why men cheat. You simply can’t understand, you did everything right. You love him and refuse to let him go but you simply want him to accept only you and reject the very thought of infidelity. Well, if you want to keep him at home here are some things you should NOT do:

Get pregnant – Shotgun marriages don’t work when every man has a gun. Having a child may be a greater push factor than a pull factor for a man. Do not get pregnant if your only intention is to keep your partner.

Confront his partners – Tempting, yes I know but that will not prevent them from sneaking around. I have realized that women will approach men in relationships without any consideration of his partner!

Cheat as well – It is said that sitting on two wongs don’t make it right and it is true. He may feel what you feel but following that path is guaranteed to end your relationship and leave you feeling cheap.

Stalk him –  You may think it is a good idea to follow him around, search his Internet activities, his phone and question his friends. You are better than that, if there is no trust in the relationship, find a new one before your vagina gets old. Stalking is wasting your time and the result is never good.

Here is what you should do.

Play with his ego –  Men are very egotistical and can be manipulated by women so easily. Let him know how smart, how big and how strong he is, he will enjoy hearing from you.

Play ignorant – Don’t let him know immediately that you know he is cheating. Subtly let him know how faithful you are and your expectations of him considering your faithfulness. Nudge his conscience.

Research new stuff for the bedroom – Blow his mind in bed, if you already are engaged sexually. Be incomparable and unmatched, a pull factor won’t hurt.

Hold out –  If you haven’t started the demolition of the house with a wrecking ball then hold out until you are CONFIDENT about his faithfulness, considering you may never be sure. Get to know him and his history. Was he a run around in the past? Have him wait until he makes a bold commitment.

Counselling –  Get some professional assistance, together.

Finally

Talk to him – After you find out he is a creeper, let him know how you feel and have him give you his assurance that it will not recur. It is important that you hold out from this point onwards, primarily for your safety.

I have a zero tolerance to infidelity so the relationship would have ended the moment I find out my fish is in another pool but try these methods if you really want your relationship to work. If these methods yield no results, find a quick way out or accept the fact that you are not exclusive.

A true stallion cannot be tamed.
