After a long walk from my friends place, with the idea to save money for later, I stopped by a fancy restaurant made of glass.

it was so hot outside that, I was sweating at the back of my ears.

I took a stop and said to myself, “Why not!

I pulled the glass door and I was welcomed by the cool breeze from the industrial air conditioner. Omo! life is good.

So I sat down close to the AC, for my body temperature to cool down from the heat outside.

“…In order to stay longer at the restaurant and enjoy the cool AC, I ordered a bottle of water and left it on the table untouched.

…One of the Waitress walked up to me after a long State from afar along side her co-workers, murmuring.

Waitress: Sir, are you waiting for someone?

Me: No. Am all by myself. Thank You.

Waitress: Sorry ooo! But my Oga said “You have to buy something. We have….

Me: Is my table empty? Did I not order for bottled water? This is how you harass customers.

Mtchewwwww! Poor customer service.

(…But in order not to fall my hand, I had to order a meal without looking at the menu.)

Me :  Since you want me to buy, Oya! Lemme have Beans and Garri.

Waitress: ????

Me: If you like do face anyhow, “Na weti hungry me be that. If una no get am, tell me make I better Dy go jejely ????.

A FEW MOMENTS LATER

Waitress: โ˜บ๏ธ Here you go, Sir

To my greatest surprise, I was served exactly what I ordered.

Waitress: ???? Do you want Sugar, Honey, or Salt?

Me: ????Gimme Sugar jare.

“…To be honest, the beans and garri was nothing like I have had before. it was so good.

Waitress: โ˜บ๏ธ Did you enjoy it Sir?

Me: (murmuring) Na only me us Waka enter wahala. Sister! Una Dy use POS?

“…Quick as a flash, she brought out a POS machine from God knows where.

I try to reach for my card at the back of my jean pocket, I heard a strange knock at the door.

Me: ???? Hmmm! Which kind knock be that?

A familiar voice: Omo! You never ready to go school? The exam na 8 O’clock ooo.

A huge smile like that of a rising sun ???? on my face as I turned to the waitress and said ” Aunty! Is like you go come collect your money for real life ooo!
