No you can’t white knight into such conversation. The man didn’t come to you, you’re just a bystander. You can’t give unsolicited help especially when you’re not sure the other person need one from you

The cost of fixing is very far less than the cost of knowing what to fix.... shocked shocked shocked shocked

Total cost = Cost of Fixing + Cost of knowing What to fix

It’s a two way road. If this said man knew what was wrong he would have done it himself. And please acknowledge that he served using knowledge, please acknowledge that.

On ethical level prolly he should fix the phone and the man should still reward him with what he has but that wouldn’t be such case.

So there is only two way it would happen. You will have to charged explicitly or don’t charge at all.

Same people will blame Dangote for selling cement higher. I don't know what 2k can buy in Nigeria now, nevertheless, the repairer should have charged the man something fair, then teach the man how to do it incase it happens again. Where I live, thats the way they do things.

Nigeria will be better when the people are ready.

THE PARABLE OF THE SHIP'S ENGINEER

A giant ship engine failed. The ship’s owners tried one expert after another, but none of them could figure how to fix the engine.

Then they brought in an old man who had been fixing ships since he was young. He carried a large bag of tools with him, and when he arrived, he immediately went to work. He inspected the engine very carefully, top to bottom.

Two of the ship’s owners were there, watching this man, hoping he would know what to do. After looking things over, the old man reached into his bag and pulled out a small hammer. He gently tapped something. Instantly, the engine lurched into life. He carefully put his hammer away. The engine was fixed!

A week later, the owners received a bill from the old man for ten thousand dollars.

“What?!” the owners exclaimed. “He hardly did anything!”

So they wrote the old man a note saying, “Please send us an itemized bill.

The man sent a bill that read:

Tapping with a hammer………………….. $ 2.00

Knowing where to tap…………………….. $ 9,998.00

Effort is important, but knowing where to make an effort makes all the difference!

My laptop was not coming on, except you press the power button for a while. I took it to a repairer, he told me to pay 6000 that he wanted to change a part, I told him 4000 he was reluctant. He just opened it and cleaned a certain part of the computer and the power button works. I was watching him, he was confused. He knew he had messed up, letting me see what he had done. I ended up paying 1500.
Lmao grin. I wanted to buy something and the seller told me 5k and told another buyer 2.5k. I said "Oga, na 2.5k you give the other buyer na".The seller just weak grin. He knew he f**ked up grin. He wanted to cheat me grin. I ended up buying below 2.5k grin

He simply paid for his laziness / ignorance.
Why not google the possible fault on an alternative internet enabled device 1st? If he is unable to use google due to illiteracy, he simply paid the price for not being educated.

If there's anything like judgement day, that's if the words found in the Bible happens to come to fulfilment, I bet your own judgement will be greater than that of the phone engineer...Ask me why?

I have no business with what the phone engineer charged the customer, in the eyes of Nigerians the phone engineer is right after all he's not running a charity organization and the Op is right to keep mum but Divine judgement cannot be applied using Nigerian street law of being smart, and because of that @ Op has the greater judgement.

My nephew carelessly pressed the sleep button on the tv in our house.The screen went blank but the red power on button was showing when I switched on the tv.I tried all techniques to make it turned on but it didn't.So I took it to a tv repairer.He charged me #1500 and asked me to come back the next day.After repairing it I took it home.
As i was using the remote to search for channels.I mistakenly pressed the sleep button and the tv went blank but the red light power button was on.I pressed the sleep button again the tv screen came up.That was how I knew that nothing serious happened to my tv.

One tv repairer continued to charge me bmoney on this until one of his apprentices told me the secret privately - it's wrong to charge people (high price) for a minor fault...no justification
