Dear Nigerians, we know you have good intentions. But sometimes, you need to check those good intentions before someone decks you. If you know you do these things to other people, whether they are strangers or people you know, please stop. It’s not proper.
1. Pulling down a stranger’s blouse or t-shirt because their waist bead is peeking out.
No, but what is your problem? Can’t you see something and turn your eyes away?
2. Walking up to them to pull their sleeves because their bra strap is showing.
The question for you is “Why?” Why did you do that?
3. Seeing people and asking them why they have gained so much weight.
Clearly, boundaries mean nothing to some of you.
4. Seeing them and asking why they are not pregnant yet.
Whatever spirit that wants to make you ask this kind of question, please rebuke it.
5. Grabbing them to get their attention.
This is really horrible, sha. And it’s wild when you are going on the road and someone grabs you to come buy their wares or come enter their bus. Please stop it. Really.
6. Seeing them and asking, “Hope you are still a virgin oh?”
If you ask me this, I’m going to assume you want to sleep with me. Because, clearly, there is no other reason to ask me such a personal question.
7. Peering into a stranger’s phone because they are next to you on the bus.
The worst part is when they tell you, “Bros please scroll down a little, I have not finished reading that part.” Excuse me, is everything alright at home?
8. Dipping hands into someone’s food because you know them.
Even if you are dating, please minimise this act. Or maybe ask them before you chook your spoon or hand inside their food.
9. Commanding them to give you something because you know they can afford it two times over.
In this economy where everyone is struggling? LMAO you better check yourself.
10. Going on a stranger’s picture to comment rubbish.
This is really unkind, sha. If someone posts and the only comment you have is something horrible, just look and pass. It’s not every post you must respond to.
