Man people are hustling in this Lagos. Something funny happened to me in traffic just now between Dolphin Osborne.
Ok, so I have always wanted to buy a Jumpstart cable just in case. U know d way Car Battery can mess u up. I saw this guy selling it in traffic under a bridge or so after the dolphin exit gate. I didn’t even plan to buy it today so I just honked n he came over.
I asked how much n he said 4k. We finally bargained at 2500. All this while traffic wasn’t moving at all. Ok, he gave me this cable n that was how traffic started moving very fast ( The traffic light/lastma passed us).
That was how I started looking for my wallet then I realized it was in my booth so I stretch my hand to give d guy his cable back. All this while I was driving slowly and d guy was racing hard. Other drivers were blasting horn as usual…
Me I just wanted to drop this cable on d road for him but he was shouting bro pls do transfer n in my head I was like how d hell will I type *737* not even this FRSC that always there and d way Sanwo Olu is Para’ing.
Omo this thing no funny. This guy was bent on selling this item. Ok, I risked typing *737* while driving slowly n I shouted *WHAT BANK * n he shouted ACCESS DIAMOND.
Ok, he told me his account No n man I didn’t have credit and this transfer didn’t go through. Which kain life.
Ok, he now said I should give him my phone number n I just remember I had my business card just in my car n I threw it on d road for him. I was driving all this while n I was like wow this guy really trust me with this unpaid item.
Ok, long story short. This happened
