Being a corps member is hard. Everybody presumes to know more than you do about your own life and more often than not, they ask questions and offer advice that can be quite stressful. Here are some of those questions:
1. “What state are you planning to live after NYSC?”
This question is important, yes. But corps members are stressed and anxious and this might not be the right time to increase their anxiety. Give them time to take things slowly and get their lives and affairs in order.
2. “Now that NYSC is about to end, how much have you saved?”
This is a look that actually means, “You don’t know what is going on.” You see that issue of saving money during NYSC? Let’s just give God the glory.
3. “So, how far with wedding plans na?”
Honestly, corps members want you all to calm down. Marriage is not running away. Besides, is it not somebody who is balance that will decide to get married? Let these corps members find their balance, please.
4. “Did you even serve at all? After all, they stopped you people from going to the PPA.”
This is what they have in mind whenever you ask that kind of question. For real.
