I left home for a brief Christmas visit and I was glad i did. I always bless God for the eventful life he lets me experience.i always have a lesson learnt by the time i’m back home.
I had a very interesting conversation with a young man that lets me know that he would rather spend higher and discomfort himself than give lower to someone he feels is trying to overcharge and rip him off. I felt sorry for him,’ you poor deluded creature’.Is this what Yuletide brings?
I can’t forget this particular aged man. He is a cobbler, i ask him to fix my shoe and he starts yelling at me, ‘una no dey hear word, una no know say u suppose sew am before u wear am’. While I was busy wondering why he was taking it personal, i kept mute. Then he resumes, ‘this one Na money matter oh, for me to do am go take big money oh… Then I said,’ Oya baba how much because I no really get much. I said this thinking this man would charge me up to 2000Naira. Believe me I felt disappointed when this man opened up his mouth to say,’ Na 200 Naira oh’. I kept thinking, did this man keep screaming with 200 Naira in mind all this time? Is this what Yuletide brings too?
Arguments brewing ahead of me;
The Young Man, Elderly woman and a Middle-aged man.
I lessened the pace at which I was walking; yea I’m a fast walker. I walked past just in time to overhear the young man asking in clear disbelief,’ wait are you still asking me to apologize?’. You see, he had told his own side of the story but was still asked to apologize.He stormed off in anger exposing his really bad walking posture. I shrugged as I walked past but auntytalkytalky couldn’t stop asking herself . Is this what Yuletide brings?
