You must be joking.
Let's assume 90k on feeding, rent and transport monthly, with 100k savings for most month of the year.
That's worth something in this present time abeg

She's likely HYDROPHOBIC.
and that's not worth her stress at all.
Small Money for that matter...
She better gets a 150k Job in states like Ondo, Enugu, Akwa Ibom than 200k Job in Lagos.
LAGOS will kill her before her time.
It's an assurance.

If not sheer poverty, what is the fuss about 190k job that makes it to be tagged "lucrative?"

Deduct the amount you spend on transport and calculate how much that is per hour (add the time you spend in buses) in dollars.

Add Lagos stress to this. You'd be living an unenjoyable and purposeless life.

Much as I doubt the sort of things people post online these days, I won't be too quick to dismiss this entirely because I know someone close to my family who has a similar phobia. And as such, I think I can relate with this to some extent.

The thing is, she is not necessarily scared of the bridge in question. She is actually scared of the body of water beneath the bridge- almost to a point of nauseousness.

I would have said this is just another 'lie' myself had it not been for the fact that a family friend (a female too) also has a similar problem. She simply doesn't like going over that bridge whenever she is in Lagos. And if for any reason she has to travel over it, she would have to shut her eyes so as not to see the lagoon.

It's a weird phobia for sure.

What you didn't factor in your equation was the salary she may be currently earning.

If the difference between her present salary and this new one is 40k or less, then the inconvenience may not be worth it.

People will hear only one side of a story and open their mouth waaaah like goat as if they have full information.

Do you know much the lady is earning currently in comparison to the alternative she is forgoing?

Do you know her phobia?

Do you know how she handles stress?

If you don't,.................. ......

Lol...they'll gladly jump at the chance.
We all expect life to be better, but what I'm saying is the sad reality we are currently facing, whether y'all agree or not.
