In Lagos everyone is angry!!!

In Lagos, everyone is angry.
Everyone is vexed.
On the streets, there’s nothing but pure anger. Humans and non-humans are vexed and looking for who to pour the anger on.

The sun is not smiling, the rains are pouring angrily.
Driver, conductor, passenger, even the bus itself are all hot and angry. The road is rough, too many potholes. Conductor is angry, he said enter with your change, yet you entered with 1000naira note for a 100naira bus fare.

Market women are angry, some have not sold anything since morning. Customers are angry too, the prices of things are too high.

Policemen are angry, bus drivers are no longer misbehaving on the road. They cant afford to be caught and pay any fine. Bus drivers are angry, Policemen are beginning to invent new offences.

Churches are angry…offering money is reducing, so they are creatively creating more programmes. Church members are angry, pastors are becoming too rich, so they have decided to stop paying offering.

Husband is angry, the wife is getting too fat. Wife is angry, the husband is demanding for two pieces of meat, yet the money he brings for food has not increased for the last five years.

So many people are angry. Just walk on the streets of Lagos, you’ll see a whole lot of anger written on the faces of people.

The economy is taking its toll.

Be careful how you talk to people. Some of them are so frustrated, they are just looking for an avenue to pour anger on someone.

Sometimes, just overlook that 10naira change with the conductor. Its not enough to start a fight over.

My fone is bad…
My car is faulty…
The traffic is too thick…
Parents are calling…
Anothers school session is knocking…
Missed landlord’s call…
Time is far spent…
Targets unmet…

Amidst all these, deliberately put a smile on your face. Don’t grow old before your time. Don’t give yourself wrinkles.

Once in a while, take some money from your salary/account if any and give yourself a treat. Go watch a movie at ICM, eat pizza at Dominos, eat KFC’s chicken or just go to a buka and order amala and ewedu with ogunfe and fanta, Coke or Pepsi.

Life is not difficult. Dont let the situation on ground begin to shape up your personality!!!
