The Door!! Who goes in First? #LovelyPeculiaritiesofNigeria

It was 3:35pm. She greets the Security at the  bank entrance and wait patiently for the two ladies who were before her to enter the banking hall. As she found herself in front of the door waiting for the light to turn green, this elderly man walks up to the door, greets the Security and places himself between her and the door.



“Good day Sir” She said. He didn’t respond but shifted slightly to the side. The light turned green and the security pressed the ‘open’ button and they waited for the door to open. She continued boring holes into his side that he looked up at her after a while.


And she gave him the “you really mean to say you didn’t notice me standing here” look.

The door opened and she waited for him to make the first move, he was blocking her path after all. She’d already shaped her mouth to tell him immediately he took the first step forward that it was her turn so he should come out and wait; and she was ready to cause a scene.

It was like he could read minds because he moved aside and waved for her to go in. And into the banking hall she went without a backwards glance.

Nigerians should learn not to jump queues especially older adults who feel they have more important things to do with their time unlike young people. If you are in a hurry, explain to the people who came before you nicely and most people would make way for you.

Not to come and be forming sharp guy.

      Make I hear? So you are implying that those join a queue aren’t sharp??
      This is why Nigerians jump queues ‘cos you will look foolish if you try to do things the right way

      1. I have had people get mad at me for not letting them jump queue. Especially in banks. Anyway sha, there are special circumstances you let people (especially older citizens be). Most times it depends on their manner of approach.
        But the niaja factor. Everybody must get strong eye or else…

  1. I can relate to this too. Happens to me a lot. One look at you and the person jumps the queue with no apology, no excuse. It’s rude no matter your age. Courtesy says it all. I remember standing patiently on an unending Enugu Shoprite waiting for my purchase to be calculated, the next thing, a woman just came all the way to stand in front. People with zero tolerance almost created a scene. She said she was in a hurry. We were all in our own hurries too.
