There are certain moments that every Lagosian can identify as very stressful and scary. Some might have happened to you, and you can only hope and pray that the rest never do.
You may recognize some of these:
When you touch your pocket and you don’t feel your phone and wallet.
When the danfo has started moving and half of your body is still outside
Because they are never patient.
When no money comes out of the ATM but you get debit alert
If that was now your last card…lol.
When you’re in an Uber and the driver calls someone and tells them that he has picked up ‘the package’
Is this the day that they use me for ritual?
When you wake up and hear the conductor shouting last bus stop and you’re at Redemption Camp instead of Berger
Your eyes will clear instantly.
When you codedly enter BRT lane to avoid traffic and you drive out and see LASTMA and police on the road
Begin to beg like your life depends on it.
When the conductor starts asking for money and you discover that you forgot your wallet at home
Prepare to chop the insults of your life.
