Yesterday, I was at DSTV office to dash them my decoder that has been giving me unnecessary headache.
When I got to the gate, the security guys asked for my nose mask. It was then it occured to me that I had lost the mask in transit while in a hurry.
They apologised and said… NO MASK, NO ENTRY!
As an obedient child that hates trouble, I went to a plaza in Maitama and asked to buy a new mask.
The lady selling mask in the whole plaza said the mask is N1,000. I heard N100 and handed her N200 while expecting my change.
Madam mask said Mbaaaaaaa ooooh. Mask is 1k non negotiable.
I didn’t even argue with her golden market that she is selling. I cut out one newspaper and used the rubber band I had inside my bag to make my own mask.
When I got to the gate, the security guys and people hustling to sell their market outside burst into acrobatic laughter.
I just boned my face like I just descended from the moon. No son of Adam can shame the shameless daughter of Eve.
After the whole plenty queue, I finally got a new decoder.
When I got back to Banex axis, I bought five new masks with 1,000.
The guy sold the masks with gratitude at N200 per one.
For me, I will rather sell N100 item to 5,000 people, rather than sell N500 item to 5 people.
As a seller, please sensibly price your goods before your customers will turn your market to necessity is the mother of invention.
I come in peace!
