HGN100 is scarce on my end. Is it same on yours?
I've been meaning to talk with someone about this painful scarcity of NGN100 for some time now.
You know how before you leave your house or any destination you fist make sure you have 'change' to avoid being beaten or verbally assaulted by drivers/conductors?
This is the situation I find myself daily. Since Lastnight, I had made sure that I had actual NGN100 to meet my first level of transportation and pray for a miracle in the second. Then a miracle truly happened.
I found in my bag's side pocket, NGN50, in my wallet, NGN40 then on my reading table, I got NGN10. I was proud and I believed that the cab driver I give this 'change' will be equally proud.
Fast forward to this morning as I commuted to work. My first level of transportation was not eventful, and apart from the sense of pride I hoped to feel when I would spend my 'changed' NGN100, I didn't expect any event. ... Until a fellow commuter entered one of the spaces in the backseat and yelled "my NGN20 tear ooo". The driver instantly turned to check the level of 'tearage' ~he obviously wasn't dissatisfied, as he didn't utter a word.
I then got a sudden urge to examine the notes I had put together. Lo & behold, every single one of them had tears ~one even had sellotape plastered across it. ... Immediately, my pride and confidence flew out of the open window by my right ear. I then had to look for how to organise the notes in ways that suggest there's nothing wrong with them.
I swear I felt like a sinner and an unrepentant one at that: especially since a fellow sinner quickly confessed to avoid some perceived wrath..
P. S: after almost 40years of life on earth, I only just learnt and paid attention to the spelling of SELLOTAPE. -----
