When children want favours from you ehn, they tend to greet you a lot of times, wa ki e nigba ogun (as in twenty times), smile with you and run plenty errands for you; na scam o..

MY STORY

So one morning at about some minutes to 6, I boarded a certain bus and was forced to notice two children (Both females) who sat at the extreme. One of them greeted me like there was no tomorrow, she greeted me non-stop. Infact her sister had to ask her  if she knew me.

As I was saying jare, so as the conductor started asking for money. She was looking at my side to pay for them. In order to get my attention, she was now calling me from afar to ask how much I wanted to give the conductor ( Ahah, common child, there were two or more passengers sitting closer to you before me, why didn’t you ask them for change first…) When I told her the amount I wanted to give the conductor, she was so disappointed to find out that I didn’t even intend paying their fare; pele o…
