Episode 17: The Man In The Jalopy


There are those contradictory sayings about first impressions and judging people. For instance there is the saying first impressions are lasting impressions, and don't judge a book by its cover. Perhaps its the realization that there cant be a universal way to judge a person that we have all these sayings. The environment and particular circumstances are key in determining whether to judge a person by the cover or not. How will a prostitute on the streets for example know whether a man is loaded or not?

At the heart of it, it doesn't matter. As long as a man can pay my fee it matters not to me whether he is spending on me what he makes in an hour or a whole month. Sometimes its obvious a man is spending the last of his shilling on me, but well that's his choice. As some other people would say generosity is not a function of how much one has, but the enormity of the heart;or stupidity.

Wordily logic, however, has it that the more one has; the more one is likely to give. From an economic view point, I tend to think everyone spends a similar proportion of their income on leisure; something like 20%. Certainly a fifth of a hundred thousand is more than a fifth of ten thousand. So a girl will wish to go with a man with more money;hoping the man will pay him extra. Of course it doesn't always happen that way.

In the streets the way to judge how loaded a man is by what he drives. I  can't  tell apart many models of cars but I can know an expensive car. Well there are girls who are experts. A seemingly expensive car will drive past and a girl will say " That's Japan not showroom." Japan is cheaper. How they tell is beyond reason. But the car a man drives is not an absolute gauge of his well being. The car may not be his. This is somehow easy to know by the way the car is driven and the confidence of the driver.

High worth individuals, driving the fuel guzzlers, are able to make decision fast. They wont dilly dally picking a girl. Its as if their minds are already set. Such a man will stop a car, and as we crowd it, he moves his eyes from end to end then settles on a girl. A decisiveness which perhaps explains their wealth. Or perhaps they don't want to be seen on the streets talking to prostitutes.

Those in the average cars will take hours to pick the girl. They have some misplaced excitement or perhaps are confused. They will stop a car, let the girls gather around, and like a king, Swazi king,  take their time to make their choice . Some will be lost in laughter as the girls sell themselves. They are problematic men.

Some months ago a rickety old car, which no one could tell what make it was, drove slowly along the street. When it stopped the girls thought it was due to a mechanical problem and no one seemed bothered, until the man removed his hand and waved, beckoning  a girl. I went.The man just opened the door. I got in and we drove to some hotel along Ngong road. To be on the safe side he was the kind of man I had to insist he pays me upfront. He gave me a $50 note for a one hour session and paid for my taxi back to town. I have neither seen the rickety car  again, nor its owner; a man not to be judged by the cover.

  1. hahaha.... funny. this is too hilarious. Sue you keep baffling me at what you do. the reverse is true. You dont know which is a good prostitute or who is a thug. I am one man who got connered by a prostitute. She went ahead to call a rogue cop, they fleeced me 20k by marching me to an atm. No i dont hate them. Just pathetic on someone to really have taken advantage on me like that when all I wanted was a sexual escapade

  2. @Sue, A man shall be judged by the shoe he wears! Thats a simple fact in my experience. Indeed a man can borrow a car, steal one or hire one for whatever reason. But a shoe with quality socks? Takes a particular type of man. Thats how i know without a doubt that any white leather shoe wearing brother is a bonafide thug. I Dont giove a shit if he has a Phd from LSE like Gaddafis son... and i am 100% sure that bastard has a white pair SOMEWHERE in his wardrobe. Nkt.

    But then again, since its not the shoe paying for the job done, i guess you are right.

  3. @ sue, first impressions eh! In your kind of business where one has less than 30 sec' to make first impressions and negotiate, i bet its always tricky. There was an episode where you talked about trusting in your guts. I think we, men are a complicated bunch and frankly you can never single one thing to ultimately define a man by. Neither by the shoe he wears, nor by the car he drives. But i blv in one thing, you spend ten minutes with a man, listen to him talking, reasonin, and you have something about who that man is. Something. Not everything. Like always sue, i love your street anecdotes.

  9. Sex sells. Interestingly enough... Sue does not appear to be a prostitute in my opinion but well vast in the industry. This is a very good read and I appreciate the comments as they are worth reading. I feel that the targeted readership is those who appreciate an intelligent and well written story. I feel that whether or not she is a prostitute, this is a very talented writer. Sue should consider writing books and make a living out of the sales. Great writing!!! Great Read!!!

  12. Maybe that was his langa pick-up truck. Years ago there was this rumour that ex prezzo Moi used to cruise the streets at night in an old datsun 1200.

  14. Sue should look for the vagina monologues and see what first class authentic female thought is e.g. ''Because He Liked to Look At It'', in which a woman describes how she had thought her pubic area was ugly and had been embarrassed to even think about it, but changed her mind because of a sexual experience with a man named Bob who liked to spend hours looking at it.

  21. since you like poetry, i though i should share one you might know... its about a girl called Irene.



    There she sits a-smokin, reefer in her mouth
    Her hair hangin' northward, as she travels south
    Dirty on her Harley, but her nails are clean
    Super powered, de-flowered over eighteen Irene

    I've seen her in the bare where her tatoo's and her chains
    Wrap around her body where written are the names
    Of prisons she's been in and lovers she has seen
    Curve winding, bump and grinding motorcycle irene

    Ground around like hamburger layin in a splat in pieces crumpled flat
    Oh, the feet were in the bushes, her toes were in her hat
    Stark-raven, un-shaven Motorcycle Irene

    TheHunchback, the cripple, horseman and the fool
    Prayer books and candles and Carpets, cloaks and jewels
    Knowin all the answers, but breakin all the rules
    Stark naked unsacred motor cyle irene

  22. strange, it is always sue that gets picked, the other day it was a guy who screwed her in a police station, yesterday some guy with an old car..am assuming he must have been an old white man... today it is silvester....( and this engineer takes her to his digs?) am sure you have asked your self this question : IS SUE THE ONLY MALAYA ON KOINANGE? i have seen dozens pretty ones and am sure many go home without aclient...sue never misses a client! something does not add up,i am coming to believe that this is all imaginary, a young lady with a powerful imaginantion..... a rael work of fiction

  25. anonymous March 9, 7:46 PM, since she doesnt write daily, I assume she doesnt get picked up daily, and so what if she does, maybe she is the prettiest!

  26. @Anonymous, March 9, 2011 7:46 AM >> There is no suggestion that Sue's posts are a day by day recollection of her life. Reading these posts, to me suggests that she just tells of a client who fits into the topic she is writing about. She is not telling us about "all" the men who have picked her up. I have no idea what your reasoning is based on.
    @Anonymous, March 3, 2011 10:53 PM >> that is simply the dumbest question anyone could ever ask.

  29. PS just because you don't find it wrong doesn't make it right..its like a guy whose payed to kill and he stands and says..im not inhuman its just work (which is true BTW)...its just that we value life differently..i kill for money and you don't... no matter what you tell yourself or us it has never and will never be right you know that as much as we do..the choices that we make have a price.PEOPLE NEVER CRUMBLE IN A DAY...sure it might not be HIV which should scare you BTW..but trust me your ever-after will be forever dented because of a conscious decision that you make each day..well good luck sue

  30. I have mixed feeling about your blog. It makes a great read. The first Episodes have a flavour of philosophy you rarely come across. Being a prostitute is not a even social taboo, it is something we don't wanna believe exists. I'll keep reading so I can form an opinion.

  31. Sue,
    I have become a recent addict to your blog, I even voted for you but I am often so heart-broken. When we live our nice lives and sleep in our comfortable beds, we never realise that such is the life of another human being.

    I just want to let you know about the love of God, as nice and candid as you sound and am sure that you have so many more virtues, adulterers will not make it to heaven.

    God is real, i have trusted him for my mum's healing and i wasnt disappointed... and so much more, n he dint disappoint. You can do smthng else and support yourself just as well. Keep us posted but seriously, I am praying for your transformation. You shall be the voice of reason for young girls. You shall prosper and you shall live to tell of His good works in your life.

  32. Sue,
    All I have done all day is read ur blog. I believe wht 'Your sister said...' says above.

    Using ur gift of writing, you have managed to put a human face to all prostitutes. And the next time I walk down K-street. I wont see filthy women who lack morals. I will see real women, going thru real issues.

    This blog is God's work thru u. And the NGO stuff too. There is a happy ending to all this my sister. There is a happy ending
