|A Stranger Returned My Goods To The Seller, Picked Costlier Ones And Paid by Froshey: 6:07pm On Jun 30|
So this morning, I was almost leaving a petty trader's shop when a lady I met there (also a customer) asked me if the bread and butter I bought would fill me, she was serious, else I would've responded with a cruise reply of "no, will you get me something better? " But I simply said yes, at the same time trying to guess what her reply would be. Surprisingly she drew closer and asked me to drop the bread and picked a bigger one with an extra satchet of butter, I was silent but making a body signal, like would she cover the extra cost? She got the signal and said I should not worry, so I stood and watched as she told the mama to return the amount I paid for the bread and butter to me(I bought some other things apart from bread).
As if that wasn't enough, she paused and asked if I have oil at home to which I replied yes, so she took the butter and returned it, she said eggs would be better.
In short, she paid the cost of the bread and butter she picked for me and made to leave, beckoning on me to follow her that she sell eggs and so I should come for the eggs in her hostel, lol.
At that moment, confusion is an understatement. I was overly confused that I only stood as if carried away watching the event unfold between the lady and someone else. "It's nothing, I'm sent to do this, I'm replicating the way strangers have helped me too by doing this" she said in our native language trying to convince me to follow her, she also faced the mama, telling both of us and listing various occasions strangers have wowed her by helping her with cash, materially and being kind.
No! I insisted, so she came back with my polythene bag as she had already picked my bag asking me to follow her, she then went ahead and picked 4 eggs from the mama's crates and paid for it also, telling me not to be shy, lol. Little did she knew that I was more than shy, I was only standing like the little guy I am, local man is already catching fear
So, she went her way after paying, I still stood there, trying to discern if she was really sent from God , and also if it's moral or safe for me to accept this gifts from a stranger out of the blue, I was trying to recall morals mama at home taught me, and if mama would be pleased with me accepting this offer.
I simply asked for her whatsapp contact, and allowed her to leave before re-buying what I initially bought, and paid to the mama.
I know the mama would be grateful to both of us that partook in giving her extra gains; :Dthe lady for her kindness to me, and to me for refusing it.
I can remember the mama telling me that people like them are omo-omi, as if praising me for being a good child .
Have you ever experienced such?
