The ₦100 Lady
I wanted to speak to her but she rudely walked away from me (or so I thought) staring at the ground looking for something. Her face wore a droppy frown.
I was mildly upset and walked away too. But after a few metres I stopped and went back to her.
What is the problem young lady, I asked.
I have lost the airtime I wanted to load on my phone.
How much airtime?
I didn’t have my wallet with me. So I looked around to see who could lend me ₦100. When I got it, I returned to the young lady.
Here is another ₦100. Buy a new airtime.
Her eyes welled up with tears as she looked at me in shock and thanked me endlessly.
I didn’t understand why she was so grateful.
But I learnt one important lesson- what may be meaningless to you might mean the world to someone else.
