Bus Chronicles

Do not leave your house without change!

This is a warning don’t say I didn’t do anything for you this year πŸ™‚, not doing that is a recipe for having a bad day.

Nigerian bus drivers are always angry😩…

On a beautiful Tuesday morning, this half-bougie babe left home with 550 naira notes in her bag.

How did she forget the number one rule when using Nigerian buses?

Balancing like a queen in the front seat, the bus conductor asked, “Front seat your money?” then it dawned on her that she had messed up big time. To crown it all, a lot of persons in the bus were with larger currencies and she didn’t tell the conductor before entering that this was what she had as the last person who entered the bus.

She decided there was nothing much she could do, she gave the comductor her 550 naira and told him to give her 400 naira change. The audacity! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

This man gave her this look like “you go dey form fine babe wetin be this? I go commot your teeth juss now“πŸ˜’πŸ˜’

The conductor was pissed, ” O girl, give me 200 naira oh, me I no hold change

Pretends to search bag, ” Sir, I no hold any money, sorry sir…. abeg manage help me find change” and returned back to using her phone, thinking she was being polite. πŸ˜πŸ˜‚

That was the stroke that broke the camels back, the conductor goes off ” I tell you say I no get change, you go dey press phone

The man was infuriated! 😩

What is it with older people and seeing younger persons using their phone when they are conversing with them?

An honest question really, I felt I was polite, but he didn’t think so.

In conclusion, he got change for meπŸ€—πŸ˜…, but I wouldn’t lie that I wasn’t a bit rattled, I always avoid leaving my house without change.

I hear in places like Lagos, they would take your money and that will be it, except you can be ready to display some form of crazyπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚, that place ain’t for me.

That’s it for today, let’s hope the new week is as interesting as the last one!

Ever had issues with bus drivers? Let’s talk, how did you handle it.

  1. I have personally learnt never to do this.
    But I still feel the bus conductors and drivers in Port Harcourt are far better than their counterparts in Lagos. I keep telling people Lagos is not for me, at least not now.
