I still give a fake name when i order food over the phone. I did it in America, Italy and China. Now i do it even in Nigeria, i refuse to be called funfair anymore so i just say john. People keep asking to hear my full name like this is a game, its real life people. The woes of having a completely unique name are real, major 3rd world problems.
I love how foreigners from america like to state they are coming to Nigeria amidst bombings, kidnappings and poor governance. Excuse me but my sister goes to school in a city where bombs went off in a marathon, my other sister goes to school where two planes crashed into two buildings and my good friend lives in the murder capital of north america. Am i missing something? Do people think north america is not falling apart. In all the countries i have lived in, America is the most dangerous and pretentious. Forget all the award shows and movies, there is rape and crime lurking in every single city. A woman is lesser than ground and a man who is either black, gay or muslim is another completely different story. It seems someone needs to turn the cameras onto the defunct state of GM and the countless ponzi schemes run by wall street. Nigeria isn’t perfect and i am far from patriotic but hypocrisy is the highest form of ignorance. Yes we have issues but so do you, last i checked my sister can go out at night without fear of being date rapped or shot by an insecure white man who can’t get girls to like him.
