6 Things To Look Out For Before Choosing A Friend

July 28, 2021

Making friends as an adult is a daunting task, and it oftentimes requires a certain level of patience. We’ve come up with a list of signs to look out for before choosing friends.

1. If they press the toothpaste from the middle.

This set of people are so used to chaos, they make sure it shows in every area of their lives. Any friend who presses their toothpaste from the middle is going to stress you in more ways than you can imagine. You can already tell that’s not a straightforward person.

2. If they start shouting from 6 am.

The only set of people who are allowed to start shouting as early as 6 am are Nigerian mums. Any young person who shouts as early as 6 am is either crazy or on drugs. Do you need a mum or a friend?; you choose.

3. If they drive in Lagos.

Lagos drivers have seen crazy and can do crazy. There’s no one who drives in Lagos who isn’t slightly crazy or big crazy. The advantage of having friends like this is knowing they’ll always be ready to fight for you.

4. If they take public transport in Lagos.

This set of people are just as crazy as people who drive in Lagos, they have run out of patience and have replaced patience with craziness. If you do anyhow, you’ll see anyhow with this set of people. They make great friends nonetheless, they are just impatient.

5. If they eat semo

People who willingly eat semo are clearly lacking in the taste department It is impossible to trust the judgment of a semo eater, if they can eat semo, they can do anything. They’ve already hurt their own feelings with that meal, now imagine what they’ll do to your own feelings.

6. If they can sleep in jeans.

People who sleep in jeans, fight battles in their sleep. They’ll wake up from their sleep to fight battles with you in real life. You don’t want to catch them on their bad days because you’ll have to take whatever you get. You have to think twice before choosing friends like this, for you one good.
