Car Talk / What Car Should I Buy With My Budget? by Izen: 2:32pm On Apr 28, 2019
Hi guys.

Please I need your advice!

What car can I buy with #2m? Max #2.2m

Preferable specs
. Sound engine
. High fuel efficiency
. Nice and techy interior
. LED lights
. Lights on the side mirrors
. Low maintenance
. Non-accidented and reasonable mileage
. Durable

I don't want Toyota because the interiors of those I can afford are mostly trash.

I would prefer Tokunbo but I can also go for Nigerian Used in Abuja only.

Lexus IS would have been a great choice but the fuel consumption is something else.

So please help a sister out car experts!

Thank you.

She prolly has an active lifestyle that burns the excesses.

Doesn't mean diabetes is a myth. I know three people who have died of diabetes.

Oga it is not sugar that causes diabetes. Sugar only makes it worse. Stop sending the wrong message to people. Even people who don't take sugar need to be weary of symptoms of diabetes. It is mostly hereditary. Coming from someone who has a number of relatives with diabetes.

DIYhackers:
Now that he's a grown man and a lawyer, to spite his father is not the way to go. What about those without father at all. It's either he understands why his father left his mom at that age or he just forgive him for no particular reason. He's got a father now anyhow. Some fathers do have regrets.

You have either abandoned your child before or you're planning to. It's not a child's fault that you can't get along with the mother. Don't punish them for what they didn't do. Don't bring a child to this world if you're not ready to stick around. It's better the father is gone than absent.
Stop this cheap emotional blackmail.

I applaud your in-depth assessment but as long as this country is concern 74% of all the above stated(if not 90%) don't matter. Once you get connected to the right connection which is dominantly a fact progression in this our country's corruptional pollution, then you don't need all of the above grammatical collision to enrol you into any company's decision.

If this your model was our country's model for working, many unemployed graduates would have certainly been engaged with "personality" jobs.

Even me that have passion to go for Russia 2018 shey I am here waiting for Aba boys to start their league.

You better wake up. Thousands of youths (myself included) have gotten jobs with multinationals without knowing a single soul in the companies. We went through all these tests. I wasn't the best student in school, I was an average student yet I hustled my way into a solid organisation. Thank God I never listened to the likes of you while I was job hunting. You're only short-changing yourself with statements like this. Wake up and find a job!!

This is one of the worst forms of stupidity...or maybe it's because she's a gurl

What can i say tho...i don't expect any less from a slay queen..i heard most of them reason with their pussies

There's nothing wrong in spoiling yourself once in a while. Why not look at it from another angle. I also have a piggy bank. I'm planning to break it sometime in November when I'll take my leave so that I can go on a mini vacation. It's easier for me to take money I'm not keeping track of for my vacation than to actually remove money from my bank account or other sources of income. That way, it seems as if someone else is sponsoring that vacation and not me. It's the journey that makes life beautiful and not necessarily the end goal. Relax.

So women shouldnt be criticized right? My girlfriend used to be overweight but after threats and scolds from me she quickly decided to hit the gym. Today she looks like a model. You people should stop being lazy. There are things you cant change ( ugly face, dwarfism, etc) those ones are acceptable.

You're just a bully. If the poor lady falls into depression now, you'll still be the first to shout "check up on your loved ones". I don't know if you people consider the emotional and psychological effects of your words and actions. You could have still made her hit the gym without the threats and scolds. That is not how to love. For her sake, I hope she doesn't end up with you.

Next2Bezee:
Nevertheless, a lot of guys are falsely accused of gropping.

I have witness a scene, on a bus back from computer village, where a woman was screaming her head off, accusing the guy sitting directly behind her, of pressing her backside with his knee. But, the bus was tight and the last row, where the dude sat, had 5 people sitting there, so the dude couldn't even budge. Should he have swallowed his knee?


Any woman that dares to try such with me, will receive the biggest embarrassment of her life.


Shut up! Sexual Harasser oshi! Justifying nonsense. If I climb bike, do I press my breast to the bike man claiming that's the only way I can sit? If you try that nonsense with me, you'd be the embarrassed one. Olodo. When these predators try some of these things with your sisters/daughters, that's when you'll understand the implication on women's psychology. Very insensitive bigot.

Or they'll want to stay on the outside lane/hold your hand while walking down/crossing the road. I just laugh in their faces when they do that because me and them know that I need more protection from then than from anything else. Forming protection that is not real.

Honestly, this world has really gone bonkers!

If a man decides his wife should not work, that she should just take care of the family while he provides for their needs, women will call him all sort of names, that he does not want his wife to progress, he is jealous of her success, he is overbearing, bla bla bla.

If the man decides that she should work and feel fulfilled, he is called all sort of names, he is a lazy man who cannot fulfil his duties, who depends on his wife to survive bla bla bla and he must be ready to do the cooking! shocked shocked
What rubbish!!

I've heard the 'definition of a woman' as a specie that does not know what it wants!
Seems very apt.

Any SORRY-ASS woman who thinks cooking for her family and herself is too much for her should stay single.
S-T-O-P WHINNING.

Otherwise, employ a "Houseboy' and then marry him afterwards.


If you want it to work that way, then we would need to start from the scratch. Because no way in hell will I go through all I went through as a child and a student, the tests, the exams, the projects, the ridicules, the sexual harassment from lecturers just to come and be your housewife. No way in hell.
So how about propose that females shouldn't be allowed education anymore so that we can dedicate the rest of our lives to caring for our men. Mr Smart A.ss?
Plus, you better be ready to fund whatever lifestyle I choose grin Shey you said you're wise?

because thats what women do. the are better at taking care of the home while the men support them. its the same case when it comes to the providing. men are better at it and the women support in anyway they can. agree to it or not, with this mentality of yours marriage will become utterly useless because couples would be sizing each on the basis of who is cheating who and it isnt supposed to be so. my previous post explains it better although you choose to be blind on the effect such mentality has on marriage. cheers. with the way you are putting it, is it not unfair for her to carry you child for 9 month since it will affect her career? explore the 50 50 thing to the last or let us be abeg.

All this "better at" you're shouting are things that were taught and are things you can learn. Being domestic doesn't come naturally to women, we were taught to be domestic. You think you provide better naturally? Come, let's compare our portfolios so that I can lecture you.
Funny thing is, no one is even dragging 50-50 with you. How is that even measurable? The problem is you lots won't even lift a finger. When you do, we won't hear the last of it. "I'm just helping o, it's not my responsibility o", as if it's not your household too. Abeg oga, you'll see your type. Marry her and enjoy. Stop shiting in your pants about the rest of us cos frankly, we don't care about you too. God forbid I marry your type.

People like you are either ignorant or just too narrow-minded not to know that WORK is not all about what you do physically.
Planning, layout, monitoring, e.t.c are all part of work! They are BRAIN WORK!

Men/husbands in the household, do more of the brain work, which is even more tiring..... if in doubt, ask a student studying for exams why he/she eats much when all he/she does is sit somewhere and read. grin undecided

"Work" does not have to be PHYSICAL or time consuming.

If not so, the Labourer that carries Cement on his head should be more paid that the Architect that 'just draws' some skecthes for a few minutes or the mech Engineer that 'just puts on his helmet' and directs the labourers on what to do.

Some of you need to see the "Big/Whole Picture" and stop whinning like a horse, just because you cook.

Honestly, l dont enjoy engaging people like YOU who are intellectually challenged and whose mindset is 'weak'.
You can go and challenge your husband to a fight, because you cook the food you both eat, e nor 'consign' me. undecided

Guy said brain work grin grin grin grin

Let us stop this fallacy that women do ALL the "home Chore/work" whether they work or not.

There is division of labour. Cooking the meal is for women. End of story.

If for example (just an example here so dont start farting), the roof starts leaking after a rain or the Generator breaks down in the middle of the night when there is no public power supply, is it the wife or the husband that takes responsibility for such, even if he has just returned from a grueling day's work? Does he start moaning like a cow about how his office work is preventing him from doing the repair?


That is when you hear tales like: 'Is he not a man'? or 'That is why he is a man'.
Fair enough, it is his responsiblity/chore in the home front and he does it without whinning.

Women should do theirs, like cooking, without whinning as well.
Any wife/woman that feels she cant cook the family meal is USELESS to the family and should move out or be kicked out.
End of story.

BTW: I can cook like mad because l am one of those men that believe that no woman should ever blackmail me with good food!.

When you people want to argue, you don't even make it believable. One of your colleagues too was saying changing light bulb, taking waste out and washing car up there..... LMAO. Anyone that compares a once in a week chore to a 3 times a day job, or a chore that would take all of 3mins to one that would take nothing less than an hour; such fellow is too dumb to argue with in the first place LMAO.

and automatically it puts her at a disadvantage because she is cooking the food she will eat, her children and husband too. what am i missing here? infact why stop there? why shouldn't you demand i pay for impregnating you or in another twist we hire a surrogate and contribute 50/50 for her to carry our child since it will be unfair for you to carry it alone. lets continue like this and by the time we are done thier will be no reason for anybody to get married because most of what married couples do out of love and sacrifice would of been measured in monetary terms. gender equality is cool but a line must be drawn or it should be explored fully to the last items so that people can make better choices

Because you have no comeback for my question, you decided to derail. I asked a simple question, your woman is also providing so why is she still expected to be solely responsible for the home front? You think paying her for the chores is more important than actually collaborating with her? Even the big corporations you all work for understand the importance of collaboration and team work, but I guess our men enjoy the bliss of being blind to the truth.

Because our mothers never complained doesn't mean they had it easy. It was just unnatural to complain in their time. You know "suffering and smiling". Thank God I have a mum who is open and honest. Hers is a path I don't wish to toll and thank God she doesn't want that for me either. Work, contribute "even more" financially, and still hold the home front solely. All for what? God for bid.

The problem most married men make in their early marriage is being too soft and scared of consequence. Oga discuss the situation with ur wife and let her know how you feel about it. Let your wife know you didn't marry both and besides you two needs privacy for now. Let her talk to her elder sister about it,give them sometime to act,and if she doesn't leave,then be a man and ask her to and damn the consequence. Is high time people should start saying their mind and stop pretending that all is well while they keep dying slowly in silence.

Please don't damn the consequences in a marriage o, it's a long term thing. Your wife may grow to resent you. Imagine your mum does the same, and your wife is asked to damn the consequences. That's still her family member abeg. I'll advise the OP to talk to his wife privately about how the situation makes him feel. Not in a harsh or blame-throwing manner but in a logical way that won't make his wife think he's being selfish. Perception is key here. In the process, he and his wife should form a team to present a United front. His wife should do the talking to her sister but if she's too worried about being in the black book of her family, then he should do it himself. There's no way OP asks his sister in law to leave by himself that she wouldn't. She can still give excuses to her sister but not to him.
The funny thing is you're assuming the wife likes this arrangement. Same thing happened to my mum before and she was the one even complaining. My father took it up and spoke to the family member in the most loving way possible and the person started looking for accommodation from then until moving out. So my guy, abeg marriage na partnership, no be every time muscle. E ma a calm down.

I never seen marriage as a competition between the man and the woman where the one that provides calls the shots. The woman should complement the man without having to call the shots. This is what I know marriage to be before getting married.

You're talking like this because the woman is bringing in the dough here. If it was the man, you wouldn't mind him calling all the shots. The hypocrisy on this thread. This justifies my resolve that Nigerian men are the ones putting financial pressure on themselves not the women. I mean, how else will they call the shots? They need to remain in that financial position of power to call all the shots init? I hope we reach a level in our society where every human is respected not because of the size of their accounts.
