CREATIVE SUNDAY || Ethics Amidst Adversity - Playlet by Vickoly

Good day, everyone, and welcome to the very first edition of Creative Sunday for the year 2024. Like I said in one of my posts a few days ago, today I've decided to take a dive into one of my resolutions for the year, and that's acting out a short playlet. In light of that, today I present to you a short playlet titled Ethics Amidst Adversity. I hope you'll enjoy it and, hopefully, find it interesting.

So the playlet is about a young man, Daniel by name, who has graduated from the university for over 3 years and yet has nothing to show for it. He was a very intelligent student who came out with a first-class grade, but unfortunately, despite going for multiple interviews, no one was willing to offer him a job.

According to his experience, he believes it's only ladies who those interviewers can benefit from; someone who's willing to bribe his or her way to get the job or those who have connections are the ones they gave jobs to, and despite his outstanding performance in all interviews, he's never given the job, and people with lesser qualifications get the job.

Unknown to him, aside from all of those reasons, some of the interviewers also don't employ him because of how overqualified and intelligent he's, and that could cause them to lose their jobs or the position if their superior were to learn about him and his impact.

Well, on one of those days, he just returned from another job hunting tour without a positive answer, and he decided to eat what he had left at home. While eating, his mother called to inform him of how broke they're, requesting that he send some money for them to stock the house with food and also pay for his kid brother's school fee, who was chased from sitting for exam for not paying.

While walking around the street, he saw a bag filled with money, and the first thought that came to his mind was that the money was a manna from heaven to help him settle the issues on the ground, but on a second thought, he knew that wasn't right, and while I looked through the bag, he saw a business card and decided to take the bag home and then call the number on the business card.

While home, he did just do that, and the person was excited and even invited him over to his house, but that's when the light fades away from the stage. What would happen next?

Would Daniel return the bag?
Would his kind gesture turn around the tides for him, or would something more disturbing befall him?

Watch out for Part 2!

But I'd you're were Daniel, what would you do in such a situation? Putting your current situation into consideration!!!

Thanks so much for your time. Have a wonderful day ahead, and stay blessed.

Hahaha I understand the situation and know how hard it's to for someone to return such when there are loads of problems..

Thanks for your compliments and stay bless.

Ok, this is what I've been thinking for the past few days now. That what exactly and where exactly am I going after service, till this moment I'm still thinking. I remembered I once told you about it.

Just the way you are drinking your garri I'm also soaking it all the time 😂 it's funny but true. I Can not wait to see the part too. Hope he gets to see the big bag soon.

Thanks for the creative video. Stay blessed.

You can also start acting of You can't place your head around what next after NYSC, but you've got your hand work, do that while you search for a better offer.

Agba you can act o, you are a man with multiple talents

if I were the one, I would return the bag. cos there is a blessing for every good deed done, it may not be from the owner of the bag

 3 months ago  

Smile thanks boss for the nice compliment.

You've spoken well and I hope he'll return and get those blessings like you said, let's see how it goes.

Wow, this is awesome, like play like play you don dey turn movie producer o. Nice one.

My guess is - he will return the money and the owner will offer him a job with a fat salary and other entitlements. No matter how hard adversity hits us, we shouldn't forget integrity.

 3 months ago  

Hahaha I'm still far from that, but let's see what the future holds.

That's a great guess, I I'm also gunning for that, because we shouldn't let our situations determines our reaction to problems.

Thanks for your comment.

Hehehe, it's actually one of my new year resolution and I was like what better way to do it thank now, waiting for the right tools will only delay or make me not do it anymore.

Returning that money is not happening in Nigeria nit with the current situation, well not everyone is corrupt but in Daniel's condition I don't think he will return that money, pls I need to watch the next episode

 3 months ago  

Hahaha Nigerians are going through a lot and that might affect the decision of the biggest saint, but let's see how it goes.

Part two will most likely be next week by God's grace.

Ahhh. Vickoly went the extra creative to bring something nice as this. This is so beautiful and I kept smiling especially laughed at the part you said you don't want to sieve the garri water because you will be wasting its nutrient 🤣🤣

This is so good and I am waiting to see what will happen to Daniel after returning the bag. I believe he did the right thing and I can't wait for the part 2. When is it coming out? 🙄

 3 months ago  

Hahah abi na, I don't want the nutrients to cart away while I'm trying to remove dirt.

Would Daniel return the bag? Of course. He would. I mean, isn’t that what they all do? At the end of the day they end up getting a “not-too-good” reward. But, it’s not about the reward, but the intention, right?

 3 months ago  

Hmmm would that be the case like most movies those?

Let's see how it goes, seems the part 2 will unfold what would become of Daniel and the bag.

 3 months ago  

I’ll be on the lookout for part 2, sir.

Hmmm would that be the case like most movies those?

Let's see how it goes, seems the part 2 will unfold what would become of Daniel and the bag.

Truely it should be returned because it's morally right and not because of the reward that might follow.

 3 months ago  

Wow, I never thought of this and you nailed it bro. I remembered you sharing a story about being a drama coordinator back and you have proven it with this short playlet.

This is the reality of what's happening among the youth, somehow they fall into pressure just because they want to do the needful for themselves and family.

But holding on to good moral is very important, it's more rewarding.

 3 months ago  

Thank you bossman, I'm glad you love this and finds it to resonate with current happenings in the country.

Yea I actually talked about it on several occasions, hope I tried?

So the thing is that most people want to be morally on the right track again, I hope Daniel do the right thing.

 3 months ago  

I’d be tempted but actually, I don’t like to take what does not belong to me
It does not work well for me at the end of the day
I’d return the bag

 3 months ago  

Yea despite our situation, we shouldn't let it take away our morals.

 3 months ago  

Lol, why this tempting question na in this hard country, me I will not see business card inside in Jesus name🤣🤣🤣

This is an interesting one, I will love to see the part two, don't keep us waiting for too long 🥺

 3 months ago  

Aunty return this money 😂😂😂

I know it's hard to do in such a broke situation, but let's see what's do.

Tha KS for the compliment.

 3 months ago

Now you're putting us in suspense mood, let part two be ready next week oo lols

 3 months ago

 3 months ago

Damn Vic, you’re a man of many talents. You never told us you could act na😅. Deciding to return the bag or not is a big ask but it it was me I would return it.

 3 months ago (edited) 

Gosh you carried me back to the Drama Years, You still got the Acting Talent in you Baba, This is a very Awesome playlet.
As for me on whether I will return the bag?, It depends on, if my account is straight up zero, I will spend the money and call the owner later when I have d money to pay no cap😂, but if I have some spare amount to carry me for some time then I will return it immediately.

Keep it Up sir, our Hive Tom Cruise 😎😎
