Monday Rant:-Kusupport Hustle ya Beshte

As we all agree in principle, beshte yako akiwa na hustle ni poa kumsupport in all ways possible including patronising his/her establishment in the hope that jamaa ainuke. The hustle may be above your paygrade ama iko off your usual route but you make it a habit to go the extra length just kuinuana na brathe.
Sasa shida hutokea jamaa doo ikianza kuingia ama afikirie doo imeingia aanze kulenga some basics of business. Jamaa anaona mambo yake inaanza kwenda poa anasahau ile discipline alikuwa nayo at the beginning while he was struggling and begging guys to support his hustle. Utapata jamaa ameanza kulewa chakari mkienda kwa hustle yake hayuko. Employees wanaiba kuiba since hakuna MTU anafuatilia kwa kina what is going on. Wale amewacha hapo hawatambui nani ni nani they are just treating everyone shabbily. Worse, jamaa ameanza kutombana na employees wake mpaka wanaanza kuona wako na shares kwa biz hakuna mahali utawapeleka kama customers. Wengine hata wanaanza kuibia veterans by inflating bills. Huu ni ungwana kweli?
This rant has been powered by tabia za a buddy who opened a bar and restaurant and we would drive some distance passing other pubs just to support him. Naturally, guys formed a habit of calling in advance kuwekelea choma ama fry ndio ukifika ni kukula tuu. Guess what the fucker and his employees have been doing to the loyal us of late? Tumbukiza ile imelala ndio anatoa anaweka kwa moto ichomeke eti hio ni choma. Ole wako ukiitisha nyama fry. Nyama hata ya siku mbili ndio inakatakatwa halafu anajaza ndani kitungu, dhania, hoho na pilipili mob to mask the staleness. Waitresses nao wameanza kuinflate bills without consequences hata ukilalamika kwa jamaa wetu. What cheek! Let me not get started on the recent influx of watu wa mchele na jamaa amekula njaro kwa ulevi akitombana. What probably is escaping his notice is that several home boys na mabrejings wengine wameanza kujitoa pole pole. Hata mimi siku hizi hutokelezea Saturdays pekee mahali nilikuwa naenda kila siku. Nini husumbua mabrathe haki?
END OF RANT.

If you are really his friend and a loyal customer too, then you should tell him what’s cutting.
Otherwise you aren’t his buddy.

My late dad once told me that there are two men you can’t advice:-
[ol]
[li]A man falling in love and[/li][li]A man who has money or thinks he has money.[/li][/ol]

In the end, you know your real friends when they can sit you down and tell you exactly the kind of stuff you have listed here about your bar owner guy.

Jamaa tumemkalisha chini mara mob sana hata tukamuonesha wenye wanatuibianga na kumuibia kama he is not around but haskii for the simple reason that he fucks the thieves when no one is watching. Time ya corona last year tulikuwa tunaendanga kujifungia kwake at least hustle iendele coz the guy hana hustle ingine. We had all the time to advice him but due to his shenanigans, tukaona kyondokea pole pole.

There’s business and there’s pleasure, and the two may not be mixed.

Hapo kweli kizee. Usiwai changanya biashara, urafiki, familia na asana. Time ya job piga job ilale. After that kula anasa n treat yourself. Customer service is the key to a successful business.

Your friend is as stupid as it comes, let him fall and he shall surely know that pussy should never be mixed with business…

The pride of ownership, the discipline of ownership.

It is his business. He can do whatever the fk he wants. You should leave him alone and mind your own business.

The way I see it, there are two possible scenarios here:

  • You are telling the truth. The guy is an idiot and his business is being ran into the ground. If that is the case, you should have stopped visiting that establishment ages ago and spend your hard-earned money in better restaurants.

  • You and your friends behave like you own the restaurant and he is tired of you. Who goes to a friend’s biz daily hata kama ni “support”?? There is a thin line between support and being a nuisance. Maybe wewe ni wale mabeshte hufikiria mko na shares kwa biz ya mtu you start ordering employees around as if you cut their cheques and drinking on credit. Anajaribu kimfukuza politely muache kumwambia vile ataendesha biz yake.

Either way, @magreb mind your own fkn business.

Your friend is not a business man but a thrill seeker.

You take ktalj too seriously. You seem to have missed the gist of the rant.

Discipline kwa bizz is what most people lack. Also hapo kwa kubeba ma boyz wako ufala after pesa kidogo ineingia ! A bro opened a joint someplace and we would of course patronize to support even though out of our way. Kidogo kidogo heshima kidogo ndio hiyo. His wife was managing the kitchen department. So one Friday we call and order meal. My fren its like she asked we be served those ’ nyama tayaris’ that didn’t sell. We tasted paid and LEFT for good. After some time the bro came looking for us at our local bought rounds pleading. He of course knew what the issue was and brought up the issue of the last time we were there. Eti we should tell him even if the issue was about his wife. I told him point blank there was no way his wife would bring such heshima ndogo without his knowledge and that was that. We never talked about it again.

I didn’t miss anything. I gave you the response you weren’t hoping for. I told you to mind your business instead of poking your nose in his business.

Wise man your dad

Beshte anaanza club ama bar
He begs you to patronize it
You do and he treats you well
Patrons increase and business starts doing well
Beshte enploys relative to manage and disappears
Relative treats people like crap, but cant be fired
Patrons leave
Beshte anarudi kuwabeg.
Too late
The end

Maskini akipata matako hulia bwata.
Your answer lies in that swahili saying

Let the guy lose everything and he will learn. Expect him to blame you and your friends when he goes down.

Sawa kimenyi. Nimesikia. However, mine was a general complaint about the absence of customer care and ethics in Kenyan owned businesses especially in the hospitality sector. As others have testified, it is so prevalent to be ignored.

Nakubaliana na wewe, lakini pia mimi hujiuliza mbona hawa wahindi are very successful and its usually a mostly family owned and run business.
