Jokes :--10 things you will know from using public toilets in Nigeria

10 things you will know from
using public toilets in Nigeria

We are sure you must have had one or
two nasty experiences where you
suddenly felt the need to use the toilet
while outside the comfort of your
house or lush bathroom. Some people
are lucky enough to be in
a comfortable and neat environment
when this happens.
Bottom line is, you are human and this could happen
to anyone. The worst case scenario would be for you
to feel the need to use the toilet while traveling
in a bus. Some Nigerians who know there is no big
deal about being pressed may not be bothered by it;
but when you are running stool while traveling, you
would definitely know it is no joke.
Firstly, the thought of having to stop the driver
and explain to everyone in the bus is unsettling;
many people debate about this in their minds for as
long as possible while trying to suppress the shitty
feeling. And when it finally happens and you
discover you probably have to do it again, it could
change your system and mess your mood. In a
situation like that, you could become sick from
worrying and could have other issues along the line.
Find below some of the other things you will
understand from having to use a public toilet:
1. The fear
While you are looking for the nearest place to ease
yourself and empty your bowel, there is this fear
of not having to mess up yourself. As a Nigerian,
you would be thinking about the shit not dropping in
your pant; if it does, you have just created another
unsettling situation. You would have to deal with
the smell and having yourself cleaned up from the
2. Looking for a place to do it
While you are nursing the fear of not soiling
yourself up, you would probably be looking for a
place to do it. Having to ask everyone around you
for the nearest public toilet is embarrassing to most
people. If it is a place you are not familiar with,
you have a lot of work to do as this would
destabilize you the more.
3. When a putrid smell hits your nose
from the entrance
Finally, you were shown a public toilet and you
made your way towards it. However, you had to stop
the moment you got to the entrance and you were
hit with the strong putrid smell of urine.
At this point you are confused, you have a tough
decision to make; whether to manage the toilet
while the strong smell of urine stings your nose or
to walk away from there and find another toilet.
What were you expecting by the way, that the
public toilet would be as neat as your own toilet?

4. When you cannot use the toilet
without paying N20
Your decision to leave the other toilet probably paid
off as you were able to find another public toilet
that could be managed.
The only problem with the new public toilet is that
there is a mean porter at the entrance who insists on
you paying N20 or N50. The sad part is you may
not be with your purse and if you do, the change
may not be available for you to give the porter.
5. When you finally made it to the
After being able to get through the porter, you got
to the toilet and discovered it is not as neat as you
thought. But of course, it is still better than the
first one you saw.
The toilet could have permanent stains that toilet
cleaner cannot remove at once. The buzzing flies
around too could land on your body and piss you off
the more. Since you are there already, you are

RELATIONSHIP :--10 basic types of boyfriends you would see in Nigeria

10 basic types of boyfriends
you would see in Nigeria

Nigeria is no doubt an interesting
country with lots of characters; there
is virtually nothing we have not seen in
this country. And when it comes to
relationships, you are bound to hear
tales that would wow you.
In order to ascertain how fruitful your relationship
would be, the type of people you roll with would
either have a long or short term effect on you.
There are certain traits women should watch out for
when they want to venture into a new relationship.
The qualities possessed by the men would give
women a glint of the kind of experience they are
bound to have with them.
In this piece, we would be looking at the different
types of boyfriends you could get in Nigeria and
the things you are likely to face while in a
relationship with them. Perhaps, this would serve as
a guide and help ladies choose wisely.
Find below some of the different types of
boyfriend you would find in Nigeria:
1. The unserious boyfriend
This boyfriend is never serious, he jokes around most
of the time and enjoys teasing you. While this may
be a good thing as the relationship is bound to be
fun, it could also be quite an annoying thing to
have him take you for granted and crack jokes with
important matters that are tugging at the strings of
your heart.
If your period ever gets missing while dating this
joker boyfriend, he would tell you to go look for it
wherever you misplaced it.
2. The wealthy boyfriend
He is all over himself and cannot do without
mentioning how vast his wealth is. You may have a
great time moving with the wealthy boyfriend as
both of you would paint the town with colors.
The only restriction attached to having a wealthy
boyfriend is that he knows other girls can be bought
and you will not be at liberty to act anyhow while
dating him because there are so many options when
it comes to replacing you.
3. The social boyfriend
Having a social boyfriend means you are not the
only one dating him. He is like a community
boyfriend with uses that extend to every tom, dick
and harry.
He is quick to lend support to a damsel in distress;
he could be useful to everyone in the community
except you. When you complain about him, everyone
thinks you are being too demanding as he is perfect
for you already.
4. The fine but broke boyfriend
A boyfriend like this could be very handsome and
would easily attract ladies in the society. Men like
these love to look good and would invest more in
themselves than in you.
After all, it is their looks that they sell; they have
their hair cut twice in a week but cannot afford to
give you money to make your hair. They would stalk
you all day and give people the impression they
worship you while you do not value them.
