If you ask the average Nigerian to give you a list of people they only tolerate because they really can’t live without them, odds that the following people will make the list:
Everyone already knows that these people don’t have the fear of God. Your landlord wants to milk you dry because of rent. And may God help you if you’re looking for a new apartment because you can’t escape the daredevil agents. Like why is their commission(s) almost as much as the rent itself. Like breaking your savings to raise money for rent is not enough, your landlord wants you to pay for service charge too. And what does that even cover? Water and “security”
Yes, they deserve all the hate.
2. Cab drivers/Conductors/ Bolt/Uber drivers
If there’s anything these ones know how to do, it’s how to collect your money and waste your time. You won’t know how much the mere existence of these people is affecting the quality of your life until you get home at the end of the day and realize how much you spent on transportation.
3. Food vendors
We know we live in a capitalist society where everyone makes money off themselves. Food vendors have hacked how to make money off you — yes, they provide a service. But why do I pay for food and wait hours before it gets to me? And wait, what is this bill I’m looking at? No, we definitely can’t be friends,
4. Online vendors
These ones are a different beast. Some of them will make you pay an arm and a leg for an item and it won’t be the only torture they will put you through. You may not get your order and if you reach out to them to ask “How far”, you might “chop insult and block”.
If you do indeed get your order, what you find inside the package may not be what you paid for. Apeke Closet, please fear God. We are in this Buhari times together.
5. Laundry businesses
If it’s not that I’m so lazy, what are clothes that I cannot wash. But why are you charging so much. Life is not that hard, oga.
