Rant No.5 – Holiday Likes and Hates

So obviously you’ve noticed that we haven’t posted in a while. This is because, we are Nigerians. And we study for our finals like good children, because our parents would not accept us back at home otherwise. And then comes the holiday season, when we typically go home, see family and friends, eat good food and neglect everything else. So, very briefly, to usher in 2009, I offer a few Holiday Likes and Hates.

Nigerians like coming home for Christmas…
… but hate having to wait 3 hours for their luggage at MMA (Murtala Mohammed Airport), and then fending off rabid money changers asking if you have “dollars” on their way to the car.

Nigerians like eating Christmas food…
… but hate having to haggle for half an hour with food sellers who charge “Christmas price” (rather, ridiculously inflated price) for a malnourished turkey.
… Nigerians also hate people who refuse to pay the “Christmas price” – they think they’re stingy.

Nigerians love ushering the New Year with fireworks and bangers…
… but hate having to run to avoid getting hit by fireworks and bangers.

… Sorry, can’t think of anything else. Too much jollof rice and chicken… lol. Feel free to add your own holiday likes/hates.
