7 Best Places To Cry As Told By Nigerian Twitter Users

July 16, 2020

Everyone knows that sometimes, a good cry is all you need to feel better about your existence. Today, Zikoko shares 7 best places to cry as told by Nigerians on twitter.

1. Outside In The Rain

According to this Nigerian twitter user, when you need to get things off your chest, nothing beats standing under the rain as you expose your body to the hazards of bad weather. Would you get struck by lightning? maybe. Would your neighbours think you’re a lunatic? definitely. But at least, your tears got a chance to be one with nature.

2. While Cutting Onions Or Sitting On An Okada

What better cover-up for your tears than when you’re cutting onions and the stench rhymes with your unhappiness thus making you cry? or better yet, when the okada-man goes fast enough for your eyes to water and you’re suddenly reminded that you’re an adult now and have to pay bills so you let the tears fall.

Okada-man: Oga, you dey cry? You: No, na breeze full my eyes.

3. In Your Bedroom

Whether facing the wall…
or in the closet…

These Nigerians agree that the bedroom is where the waterworks and for others, darkness is a key component to a successful crying session. Note, PHCN has to be in agreement with your grief for it to bang.

4. Office Bathrooms

Something about the tiling in an office bathroom hits different when you cry. It’s like the perfect echo chamber for your sobs and sadness and it intensifies when you know that you work long hours for little pay at a job you absolutely hate.

5. Your Human’s Chest

Relationship twitter at it again…😒

This only works for those in some form of relationship. If you’re single don’t attempt this it will only end with you sobbing on a stranger’s chest as they try to peel you off and clean your snot off their shirt.

6. In The Presence Of God

Sometimes, worship hits different. One moment you’re singing a song, the next you’re on the floor bawling as you think of the goodness of God in your life. Most worshippers have mastered the art of looking immaculate as they cry unto glory, others, not so much.

6. At The Ocean

Crying by the Ocean works well if you’re a marine spirit because why else will you be crying by the ocean? This person is obviously a version of Disney’s Ariel who misses the ocean life and can’t wait to play with her pet Jamaican crab.

7. Inside A Car

Crying inside a car is top tier crying spot especially when the car isn’t yours. The car owner might want to interrupt with their curiosity but you must stop them with the weight of your sadness.

Bonus: In The Card Shop Reading The Messages In Greeting Cards Because You’re A Baby-Back Bitch

This tweet was oddly specific that it had to make the list. Obviously, this person has obviously been through a lot.

In case we missed anything, tell us your favourite crying spot and why it bangs.
