Lagos never ceases to amaze me. With a population of over 20 million people, you are bound to meet individuals of different backgrounds, and there is no better way to encounter them than being in Lagos traffic.
But sometimes, these encounters could be repulsive and somewhat disgusting. I was in a bus from Jibowu to Ikeja and had my most horrific experience, I just might need therapy.
The journey didn’t start horrific, it was just like any other day, until this elderly woman who seemed to be in her late 50s sitting right beside me started coughing, while doing a poor job at preventing her saliva from making contact with those beside her.
It didn’t take long before she started spitting, letting out long drawing saliva into a piece of cloth which she had with her. But that wasn’t the worst part, being with her for about 30 minutes with the traffic held at stand still wasn’t the worst part.
The worst part was when she highlighted at Maryland, and as she was about to get down from the bus, she rubbed her saliva cloth against my body.😭😭😭
