|How You Hurt The Least Of Your Brethren Unconciously by Harrisonwo(m): 5:11pm On Aug 04, 2015|
Got this from a friend thought it wise to share so that we can reflect:
Most times when we walk into big malls, boutiques, supermarkets, we never question their prices.
We pay exactly what we see on the price tags and even hand out tips to the staff. But the moment we are out of these shops and want to buy banana, our bargaining game gets off to the roof. Poor widow with 12 hungry children at home tells you banana is N100.
She even takes out her time to explain how difficult it was for her to even buy it, how the economy is so tough. But we insist that if it's not N50, we are not paying.
Some of us even step back into our cars and make to drive away. But because 'half bread is better chin chin', this woman is forced to call you back and sell to you at little or no gain.
In her heart, she cries, she's worried about how she'll survive with her children. She silently reassures herself that 'It's well. God will definitely provide' while you happily chop the luscious banana. Take some seconds out and think about this, guys.
Please stop the hard bargains with small vendors like these. They do business not to buy designer bags, Gucci shoes but to LIVE and EAT!

This is so revealing and encouraging.

Never thought of this before. ... we really need to encourage and be more generous to these vendors out there surviving on their little biz.
