How Would You React To This Message? by pocohantas(f): 3:37pm On Oct 09, 2023
Backstory...

There is a shop that sells gas on my street. It was previously owned by a yahooboy, but when he picked money again, he bought a car and stopped opening the shop. A lady took over earlier this year and I don't know if she is working for him or change of ownership, but she opens everyday.


Last week she said she wants to see me. I was in a hurry and told her some other time.

Today I came out to receive an item from a dispatch rider and she saw me. What is it, she said she can't say it as someone was with her.

Now I was curious...we exchanged contacts and about 3hrs later I got this message.

For emphasis, I am not one of those that doesn't believe in patronising street shops. I patronise some on my street. I just do not buy gas from street vendors. MY PREFERENCE.

Very simple.. grin

I can't patronise you because i buy it at 250 naira per kg; Something you won't sell for me.

If you will sell at that price, i would patronise you .

Thanks.

Say what? That you don't buy gas from street vendors?

Instead of wasting your energy explaining, give her a reason to run away by herself.

It is the Entitlement mentality for me! She did not even beg you to buy from her. Rather, she's asking for an explanation.

A Ment case, if you ask me.

I no get any customer for street, Ishi.
Buying gas on the street is like buying fuel on the street to me. For emergency situations or small quantity.

I told her I have no problem with her, but I rather buy at depots. She replied "OK".

My response would be I prefer to buy gas from wherever I buy it. Period! If you're doing it for safety reasons, say so. It's not compulsory to be nice all the time

Is not so difficult to answer...

You can always tell her that your husband do the buying as he has a friend who sell gas also, you can even say most times, the person comes to pick the cylinder, fill it and bring it back...

She's only trying to have you as a customer, you must be a respected person in the neighbourhood, for her to approach you...

If you can patronise her once, ease don't hesitate, you never can know what favour you are doing to her...

Buying from Streets vendors is better, plants are always under dispens. Plus your t.p to the plant. Their profit is just 50-80

I sometimes wonder why you guys put up everything online. What if the lady is here on Nairaland??

Anyway to the topic, I understand cos I usually feel same way about some street vendors too. Just politely tell her the truth. You'll always sleep better being plain.
