Lol jk, it’s been terrible.
The floods, damaged property, washed clothes refusing to dry, not being able to get from point A to B without strategic planning, and more. But we’re choosing to look on the bright side here at Everyday Lagos.
Some people have definitely been having it good because of and in spite of the rainy season. Some of those people include:
Because cars that were intended for the roads have now been turned into submarines, I’m sure most mechanics have been cashing out from repairing fan belts, exhausts, and everything else that spoils on a car when it is submerged in large bodies of water.
Nigerians typically don’t like to visit doctors until they are at death’s door. Rainy season tends to bring with it a lot of germs, so we know most people’s local chemists will be making a lot of money selling cold medicine and malaria drugs for all the illnesses brought on by the cold and the accompanying pools of stagnant water.
- Danfo drivers and other providers of transport facilities
Ubers have been on surge pricing for as long as I can remember, and danfo drivers and okada riders have doubled their prices because they know we basically have no other choice.
- Twitter Comedians
The jokes have really been flying and while there’s no money in it, but it has provided some comic relief for we the observers, and writing material for bloggers like me.
