4 Annoying Things About Using Artisans In Lagos

As everyone that has ever solicited the services of artisans in Lagos knows, it can be a very infuriating experience. And for many reasons too. So we figured that we’d list and talk about four of them today. Because there’s nothing better than finding out that you’re not alone in your frustration.

1) Finding them.

As you go about your life in this Lagos, you will come across multiple shops and stations for different kinds of artisans. You’ll even think to yourself, “How are these so close to each other? Don’t they fight for business?” All this will change when you actually need one. All those shops you saw? No longer there. It’ll be like the universe is altering reality just to mess with you. Then you’ll have to start calling everyone you know to ask if they have a carpenter or baker on speed dial. The worst.

2) Getting them to show up.

Let’s say you get lucky and actually procure the number of an artisan you need from a friend. You call the person and tell them what you need to be done, and they say, “Ok.” You’re ecstatic because you think your troubles are over. You’re wrong, though. Because an artisan in Lagos actually arriving when they promise they will is a cosmic event that’ll trigger an ice age so cold, hell will freeze over.

3) Getting them to do their work on time.

After showing up late as hell, they’ll now proceed to work in slow motion. It’s almost like they think you have no plans for your life on any given day and can afford to clear your schedule and just sit around and watch them work slower than Wonder Women in every action scene of hers in Zack Synder’s Justice League.

4) Getting them to actually do their work properly.

Artisans in Lagos LOVE to complain when you demand that they redo a thing because they’ve done an obviously terrible job with said thing. They will complain so loud, any passerby will think they’re doing you a favour, as opposed to the fact that you’re paying them money in exchange for a service.


Avoid all this stress and just find artisans that sabi the work on wrkman.
