I had boarded a bus, and was on the way to another state. I had been asleep most of the journey, till I suddenly jerked awake when the car came to a halt. The snacks and food hawkers had swamped the bus, each of them trying to sell their items. My belly rumbled and I decided to buy chips, signalling at one of the hawkers, I brought out 500 naira. I asked for 2 packed chips, he said it costs 200 naira, at that point I spoke out and said “this is too expensive,” one of the hawkers friends told me that was the true price. I then returned the chips to him that I wasn’t buying again. Meanwhile, the young hawker also had like five 500 naira notes in his hands. Then something happened, right after i returned the chips to him I felt like I had paid him already and made a signal for him to give me my 500 naira, which I never originally gave to him. He too thought I had paid him and handed over one of his 500 naira notes to me.
And at that very moment, the bus kicked off and went off at top speed. I then looked into my left hand and saw that my original 500 naira note never left me, and I had already collected another 500 naira from the hawker.. Oh snap!! The bus could not be stopped and it was going to be impossible to reach the hawker forever. So I now had a 1000 naira with me, and 500 naira wasn’t mine. What was I to do with the money? Throw it out of the window or what? This was totally unintentional, no one even saw it happen but me. I could just picture the face of the guy when he realized he had just given out some of his days earnings. What would you do if it was you??
