June 2, 2016

1. Your face, when the security guy makes you open the door yourself.

Why are you now here, biko?

2. You, straining your neck to read their menu.

Na wa.

3. The attendants and “we don’t have.”

Why is it now on your menu?

4. When you hear how much they are selling their drinks.

The same drink they are selling outside?

5. Your face, when they tell you their POS is not working.

They will now start directing you to ATM that is 5 buildings away.

6. How the attendant looks at you when you ask for extra serviette:

Hian! No vex.

7. You, waiting for them to bring your food out.

Must I starve and die first?

8. The food you order vs. The food they bring for you:

What is this?

9. When you tell them to add extra food.

Ah! Sorry.

10. When the food they bring out is now cold.

What the hell?

11. When they give you a blunt knife to fight with their chicken.

What’s now the point?

12. When you take a bite out of their meatpie and all you taste is dough, air, and betrayal.

You people are just selling lies.

13. When the attendant that said they’ll bring your change for you sees you coming.

Give me my change, abeg.

14. When the security guy starts doing “happy weekend” as you leave.

You saw all I spent and you still want to collect money.
