Hmmm please you will help me to check-in a bag on our way back. Why? You see, that my friend we saw yesterday has excess luggage so, she brought a bag for me to help her take. So, ‘tis me you are certain will not have much luggage? So? I am going to have 3bags and my hand luggage and they only allow 2bags. Who told you? If you don’t exceed the maximum per person it does not matter how many bags you have. Well, that is what she told me, that they only allow 2bags and a hand luggage per person. Hmmm, that is pretty weird to me sha oh, but, let us even get to the airport first. This guy, ‘tis me you want to be liable for possible trouble abi? Don’t worry a fool-proof way I will find not to be responsible for carrying your presumed excess luggage. Me, carry somebody else’s bag? No way.
Put your bag on the trolley now. ‘tis not necessary, I will just wheel it along. No oh, how can I allow my oga to be carrying load? Smart one, we will end up checking in together. Just pray the combine luggage do not exceed….
Excuse me, please can you guys help us check in these bags, since you only have hand luggage? We have checked in. It does not matter; you can still check them in for us. Sorry, we cannot help you. Kai, is it my afro (oops, I just unveiled my identity) abi, do I look like a mugu? No problem, if you guys cannot help us. Tough luck. Why are you explaining to them that we have checked in? Oh, because you are helping your friend to carry her excess luggage abi? Now let me tell you something, you don’t ever collect any luggage from anybody at the airport. ‘tis that simple. You see if your friend had asked me to help her bring her excess luggage back, I would have told her no. Why? What does she have in her excess luggage? Goods she wants to go and sell with possibilities of making profits in excess of 500%. I have no problem with the profit she is going to make, that is why she is a businesswoman anyway. However, I have every problem with her not wanting to pay for services rendered her. But, more importantly, you don’t courier people’s (more especially strangers) luggage, that is the easiest way to be a very important guest of NDLEA.
When we (individually) decide to be RESPONSIBLE for our ACTS (& actions) then, we will realize that such thing as ‘the Government is bad’ does not exist.
What are you still doing indoors, you mean you went all the way to Dubai to browse? Hmmm, didn’t realise I supposed to be walking up and down the streets 24/7? But,….. But me no but my friend, have fun.
What are you doing in blogsville? …….thot, you were in Dubai. Ehen, so during leave one should shut down even the virtual world? Noted, my dear friend.
Hey, so how was your trip? You see first thing I noticed was that they have two ‘weather’ conditions. Outside is hot (not necessarily sunny but, the air is hot) and inside (at least all the buildings I entered) is cool (as in air-conditioned). But, I did not find what I was looking for. Pray tell, what were you looking for? People with two heads on their shoulders. You are simply mischievous. I am serious oh. You see, Dubai can easily pass for one of the fastest developing Cities in the world. This you can attribute to the vision of one man (their ruler –the Sheik), who wants to make sure that by the time their (crude) oil finishes (the myth is that their oil is going to dry-up after a definite period of time); they (the country) are self-sustaining. But, more importantly, what fascinated me the most was that the people ACCEPTED and were COMMITTED to the works (be it blue or white-collared) they do.
‘twas an experience that confirms that nothing is totally impossible , once the WILL is there.
