HELP/ADVICE/ANYTHING..PLEASEEEEEEE!!!!

Hey guys and gals of blogville..hope everyone's week is going well!!! Please I have a huge favour!! I need all the Doctors, Engineers, people that have tactics, Agbero's self anybody HELPPP!!!

Here is the problem. My family is about to apply for the Citizenship passport of where I live. For you to apply you should have stayed in the country for 3years. You can leave and come back over the three years plus sum other crap you ahve to have done. During this 3 year time, I have left the country without my parents knowing.TWICE!!! don't worry it was Nowhere far, just across the border. for like 10days each time. Now the problem is on the application form, they ask you to list all the places you have been to in the past 4 years and my entire family is going to put down certain dates when we all left the country collectively. Now my dilemma is I cannot lie to the government because this is VERY BAD!!! but making my parents know I have been leaving this place, THEY WILL HAVE MY NECK!!! coz they will know I have been going to see my Boyfie!!! Ehem so I need a plan where I fill this form truthfully for the government but at the same time the parents don't find out..PLEASE HELPPPPPPPPPPPPPP...
This is so sad because it means I wont get to see Hubby on Thursday as planned. because with this situation I don't want to make it worse by leaving the country again. At least until after they apply. Yes Fine I am wrong to do such without letting my parents know. But man such is life. I really want to see him.its been almost 5 months.and I cant do this anymore. But at the same time, I would be in so much trouble. And no am not old enough(i think) where I can pull the"you cant tell me what to do, am old enough" card. So please Blogville people help me!!!

ALL SUGGESTIONS ARE APPRECIATED!!!
Thanx all...and please no laughing..its not funny!! Biko..:D
xoxo

If it makes you feel better, I did not laugh until you told us not too, then I giggled.

Ok. I think you have to be a big girl about this and fill out the form truthfully as planned, and hope your parents don't notice. If they do though, just tell them that yes, you did leave the country a couple of times and it was to see a friend. If they ask who it was, tell them. And before they have your neck, tell them you're pregnant with their future grandchild so they should really be careful!

And after they wake up from their faints you can say "Oh, that was a joke! I'm not pregnant!" and they'll be so relieved they'll forgive you for leaving the country a couple of times! It's a great plan, isn't it?

About your secondary problem, is it possible for your boyfie to come and visit you? That way you still get to see him.

(And for aafety reasons alone I'd tell them where I'm going, just so they know.)

gng got me laughing

just be truthful and dont leave the country. a little inconvenience for the family's happiness. and like GNG said, maybe he should come over

Buttercup said...

oh wow..i dont wanna be in ur shoes right now..

i have no solution as to how u can avoid ur parents knowin..if they find, which i guess they will if u r gonna fill the form honestly, u cud say u went to visit a sick friend n she paid for the trip n ish or somn, dont tell them u went to see a guy..lol i dunno jere!

all the best o..i dont want u gettin into trouble..:(

Buttercup said...

i just read gng's comment n saw she said the same thing bout u goin to visit a friend..lol..

Buttercup said...

ok, so i was chattin with my friend, E, n he came up with a suggestion, or rather, suggestions after i sent him the link of this post:

"she can still pull it off without her parents knowing anything..
she just needs to fill last and make sure noone goes over her form..
u just have to do it with skill.
first u fill wat they all know, let them review that one cos parents like to review such forms
now after the review, she needs to get the form and add in the extra under-g travels..
since it is even across the border, she can just say one of her classes went for a field trip and after they were done, she decided to stay a few days extra to enjoy the area.."

Sting said...

There's no way around it. Just fill out the form, and state when u left and for how. If the notice, u just have to fess up. You don't want to lie on that type of form, so dont even think about doing that.

Lady Koko said...

BUHAHAHH AT BURRACUOS FRIEND...LOLOLO....
YEA U CUD DO THAT..
or u cud....
LIKE STING SED..OWN UP .....AS AN ADULT..AFTER ALL U DINT TEL UR PARENTS WHEN U WERE TRAVELLING BECOS..... you felt you were an ADULT.......ADULTS ALWAYS ACCEPT THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR ACTIONS....
AT THE END OF THE DAY...
ur their daughter..they can only SHOUT...SCREAM..OR SLAP......
p.s: I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!! AM JUST SAD U WONT SEE HUSBY!!!!!!!!! BUT U ALWAYS HAVE ME.....(i shud be enuff jo *hiss*)

Lady Koko said...

P.S:XOXOXOXOXOXOOXXOXOXOOOXOXOXOOOXOX *OVERLOAD..2 DAYS IN A ROLL ..DAMN U MUST BE SPECIAL*
*wink*

Afronuts said...

I agree with Sting.

The most honorable and powerful thing to do is the RIGHT thing.

Dont even lie...and Im sorry to say this - if you need to tell ur parents, u have to.

My reason - if u dont break the ice sooner, it may sink ur ship.
Tell them and let them know u never meant to do things in such a way that it would complicate things...theres a way u go about it such that they would sympathise with u rather than vex with u.

Trust me, it works.

LG said...

hehehehe (notice d laughter is in small case) *grins*
but sweeri, theres nothing like a clear conscience o,
just tell d truth n leave d rest, u never can tell....... Goodluck


muuuuaaaah!!!!
njoy ur w'end

Parakeet said...

Ms.O, if am not wrong this is my first time here and you actually made me turn heads at work due to my loud laughte...ok ok am sorry but even the way you wrote it is so adoringly funny.

I'm happy to read some wise comments here and I think you have your answer already. You need to complete the form truthfully and deal with the wrath of your parents. Trust me, it wont be as bad as you envisage. We all have to pay for our actions one way or the other that's why we must act accrodingly all the time. But one will also be inhuman if one does not err.

Take care love and fill us in on how it goes.

Rita Esuru Okoroafor said...

This is what I call humourous writing. If you were not serious, I would have kept on ROTFL...

Well, u've been told the honorable thing to do - don't hide anything from them. It's better you're truthful now and everyone gets over it than starting one lie which could lead to more lies and further complications.

And it's possible you can still see Hubby on Thursday. My mom was moved by my sincerity when I once told her I wanted to spend a nite out. She told me she trusted me.

NigerianDramaQueen said...

As has already been stated,
You absolutely cannot lie on this form because it would jeopardize things. At the same time, I realize the kind of kwanta you could be in. My mother would ring my neck...okay, maybe you could make up a story? Have a friend back you up? Or if your brave enough, just tell the truth...it will definately be hard but more beneficial in the long run. Awwww Im so sorry babes...can only imagine your dilemma...let us know how it goes.
xxxx

wellsbaba said...

hahahahaha!....ok im sory I'd2laff ironically I think ur request for us not to laff sorta had a counter effect on us! anywais,I really dunno ow u gonna go bout it,u just said u cant lie n dnt even think bout it! n since u cnt lie ur parents r gonna knw d truth!mayb u jst lie bout d reason u went there but we both know it wouldnt work!...lol...LAMO!

Woomie O! said...

I've sorta been in a similar situation before o! (But in my own case, i didn't go to see a boyfi, I was on a peace-keeping mission with the UN ...ROTFLMAO)
Girlfriend, I know how you feel.
Just own up...lie about the reason(s)if you want BUT! you must tell em what's up.
T'was almost impossible to read this post, I had to highlight it first...can you change the color????Pleasse??? I like your blog...and I have astigmatism. *wink*
first time here!!!

prettyinpink said...

hi hon,

i think i can help u, but if u under 18 ur parents would have to know......but if u over 18 u apply all by ur self, this is what u do...1st off all, i think wen applying u need a form, get two forms, fill in a fake one and the real one, the fake one is for the eyes of ur parents alone, if u need to get a solicitor to stamp it, stamp both, cuz obviousily they would be going tru ur application as u go....make sure u really smart with it...when its time to post it swap it around... really the only way u get busted is if u make it obvious.....when its time to post it cuz they might be posting it all together swap it....or u give them the real one cuz they have gone through it, they wont be going through it again..............................................
and wen u left the country or crossed the border was ur passport stamped or anything that could get u busted..if nothing was done to you then believe me the governor really dont know so u cool down u dont have to panic....

ShAé - ShAé said...

Big Brother is always watching and since you've blogged about it I'd say definitely tell the truth on the form and also to your parents. It's easier to forgive one discretion rather than three or four. Just tell them you're sorry for not telling them sooner and it won't happen again without them knowing.

Think of it this way, if something were to happen to you, they could help you faster if they knew where you were.

naijalines said...

Best to be honest. It'd work out ok in the end. Your parents may give you an earful, but it's not the end of the world...compared to the consequences of trying to hide the truth.
Consider b/f visiting you in the meantime.

Afrobabe said...

Hahahhahahhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa...I am not laughing oh but hahahahhahahah ..

babe, i think the only way out is to call the parent you are closest to and come clean...dont lie oh...

Shubby Doo said...

oh no you didn't....hahaha...come clean...from what i remember of such forms your parents will want to look at it that you did it right b4 they get someone to sign as your reference.

eFJay said...

Shit!!! Don't u have a friend that lives where boyfy lives, you can say you've been going to see the friend... or say you made a new friend... or you just needed a break and you just went away for a bit...

Hope u sort this out soon o. Pele

Ef babe

eFJay said...

R u guys funnyy? Come clean ke? If i came clean about such, i'd be on the next flight to Lagos + my ma would prob make me take a pregnancy test.
(What kind of person am i, i'm telling you not to tell the truth)

Goodluck babe

Chari said...

jus do it joo and hope they dont see it...what's the worst that could happen?

Aphrodite said...

Eh ya, tight spot there.
I think you should just do like afro suggested and tell one of them preferably mumsy that you travelled out at certain occassion but you dont have to tell them you went to see a man o!

all da best luv.

badderchic said...

no be small matter o!

okay the way I see it, the truth will set you free, its hard ehn but meen!

I sincerely dont want to be you right now.

Tininu said...

This is what you do, you put all the dates down but not in chronoligcal order...so if you start with 2004 just chuck in activities you dont want them to see, somewhere in 2006 and just carry on filing the rest...that should do the trick, i dont think your parents would sit down and look through all ur dates especially as i am sure you have travelled without them( with their knowledge)....

archiwiz said...

O girl we can only advise you based on our own dealings with our folks. Personally, I have gotten to the point where I tell my parents after the fact, and whatever they say, they say, and I listen and take it calmly. What's been done has been done.

LOL @GNG... I wonder how that pregnancy thing would fly? Perhaps you could tell your mum (or your dad depending on who you're closer to) you're going to see your boyfie/Hubby (me sef confuse) and if any raking starts, you calmly say that you were just telling her bcos you feel both of you have now reached a wonderful point in you guys rel/ship where you can tell him/her many more things. You can then say how you've gone twice b4, and you respected yourself and their name. :)
