Why are you so ANGRY?

The people in Lagos AMAZE me! Almost every Nigerian is extremely angry! No seriously though…It’s like every one here is on a power trip and when they don’t succeed they lash out at everyone around them who’s happy…

I went to the passport office today for my new Nigerian passport and first of all let me say that office is embarrassing! I can’t wait till I get a new phone so I can start showing you the things I see in this country…

Second, if you don’t have connections in Lagos, I don’t know how you’ll survive. I go there and there were at least 200 people waiting outside in the ridiculous heat to be answered, luckily for me my uncle knows someone practically EVERYWHERE  (in my opinion) so I was there in and out of there in an hour.

But while I was there, let’s discuss the lady who was attending to me. Home girl was definitely angry. Maybe she didn’t get none the night before of something, but you could tell she was not happy at all. (And I hate people who are mad rude and belligerent at their job. I always say ‘If you don’t like your job, then quit’. While I know it’s not that easy and everyone needs money, if you’re in a situation take it in stride and do it willingly if not go home and sleep.) She was snapping at everyone around her, talking to me like I just stole her man and when my cousin and I laugh at something we see (that has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with her) she gets even more annoyed and tries to push me aside to attend to someone else…

But you know what I’ve realized about Nigerians, they like to hear sorry, please, thank you and all that… they like to receive respect they don’t deserve cause it makes them feel more powerful… And I tend to give it to them. While that may make me weak in your eyes, it makes me powerful in mine. See I know what they want, and I give it to them and I’m still going to get ahead of them eventually. I’m not going to give you back anger because that won’t get me anywhere, except at the mercy of some old, menopausal lady on a power trip who probably hates every female cuter than her.
