It's there?? That was his advice? It's there?!? I mean duh it's somewhere! Could he at least pretend he knew? Or walk with me to help find it?
But no, he had done enough. Technically, while he was saying "it's there" he was also making continuous hand gestures pointing to only God knows where. So in his mind he had put in a lot of work, right?
At this point I had no choice, but to venture off on my own. As I went through all the aisles I finally found some shampoo, thank God. And later found the hangers - in between completely random, unrelated items - of course.
Typically I would keep wandering the store and end up buying a few other things, but not today.
With all this roaming, I was drained and quickly joined the line at the register. Great, yet another endeavor to overcome.
The lady in front of me was buying just a toothbrush that cost N300. She gives the cashier a 500 Naira note. The cashier responds, “Madam, you don’t have change?
“No, just 500’s”
“Ah. I don’t have change oh.”
“Okayyy?? So go and get some?”
“Oh ok ok, I’ll try.”
The cashier signals to another “co-worker.” Again, I’m using this term very loosely. “Abeg, help me get change.”
The girl snaps back, “Is that part of my job?! No oh. I can’t do that one.” She hisses and rushes off.
