I was warned..................

So its been raining or drizzling
while i aiint salt
i dont like to get wet,damp or whatever
so i have been taking cabucabu .........

there's this bad patch on the way
its really bad
keeps getting worse
its been know to swallow SUV's
how much more cabucabu that
apapa trailers will blow away..........lol

ps:if u know anyone that owns a picanto
advice that person not to pass tincan,apapa route ooooooo


the car will be blown away
(I hate the vehicle)
it's tiny
any one who knows me knows i like big things
.....*cough*..........*wink*........

oh ok i digress...

so i engage this cabucabu and dude and i agree on 300 naira
......i let him pick other passengers on the way cos
he wanted 500 naira......

journey was smooth
no old papa to harass this tyme....*wink*.....

we get to the bad patch
i pretend to be engrossed in a novel

he GRUMBLES ALL THE WAY
at a point i felt we were gonna topple into the water......

we made it safe across........
then got to my destination
i alighted.....
paid and just as he received his fare he goes

Aunty..ni ojo imi ti e ba ri mi ni garagi wa
ema pemi kin gbe yin wa sibi yi
ona yin yen ko da rara o
mi o le ti tori ise 300 ki lo tun motor se fun 3000

Aunty...next time you get to our garage
dont engage my services to bring you here
i will not fix my car for 3000 naira
just cos of a 300 naira trip
the road is pretty bad



i just dey laff......

he kept shaking his head as he drove away
to face the bad patch again........

that was yesterday
today i swam across in my rain boots
and took a bike the rest of the way
i did see cabs at the garage but i was afraid

i remember baba's threat
i could have been lynched if i had tried
to get a cab cos i know baba must have spread the word

so u see
me sef dey fear small...........sometimes.......

*wink*...........

It really doesn't matter does it?
If someone tagged me again I'd simply re-post the one I just did. Cest fini.
Anyway, thanks for dropping by. Being a newbie I didn't know you had been tagged. It was nothing personal.

No dey fear. If you see the baba, psyche him.
I won't suggest asking him to drive you though (before he swears for you).
You've been warned indeed.

No comments.

I am yet to see a Lagos taxi driver that will not complain about one thing or the other when you get a ride on them. If its not traffic, its the road or the distance, or whatever.
They should just get meters.

How are you?

ibiluv said...

......meters*&^%$#@ with the traffic situation in lag............HELL NO!!!!!!!!!!!
