He said that a phone conversation from the boss to the friend when he was beside his mum ruined it all. After their talk, the boss asked to speak to his mother.

The worker humbly told his boss that his mum is illiterate, asking the woman to speak to her in Yoruba only.

He said:

“Ma, my mum is illiterate, please speak Yoruba to her instead of English.”

That particular statement angered his boss who asked how dare he talk about the woman like that when his job is to polish her up.

The woman asked if that is the way the worker goes around talking about the company’s clients. After an abrupt disconnection, the man’s contract was terminated via an email.

"I don't think it was any fault of his. The boss has an issue with temper and rushing to conclusion. Seems to me like someone who's hard to please. If it were an office setting, then she's on her right but in his own house again. It has to be ment!"
