Sasha said, “I would always sneak in with my friend Sherman to be a seat filler. I see seats down there and I’m like ‘let’s go down there!” They trudge along to the empty seats they spotted and sat down. A few minutes later, a lady walked up to them and in a sassy tone, said, “You have my seat! Get up off my seat!” Turns out the ‘Boss’ and her friend had stolen Kofi’s family’s seats.

Kofi and the rest of the New Day were clearly enjoying Sasha’s story. “That would probably be the situation where she would turn up,” commented Kingston.

The whole narration drew a lot of laughs from all four participants in the podcast, especially Kofi who was surprised by his mom’s reaction to seeing her seats taken. “They probably left to get popcorn or something and I was feeling so bad,” said Sasha.
