Route: Victoria Island -Ajah
At the first gate bus stop, Ikota, Ajah; the driver makes a right turn to take the alternate route… We passengers already know the repercussion of this- Missing some bus stops and not getting us to our final destination but it seems nobody cares as long as we get home early.
Passenger: 2nd Gate wa o!
Driver: (slows down) Oya boole jare!Ko rin pada lo si be.(Just alight and trek all the way back)
Passenger: Is that how to talk? No be your fault, na because I don pay you. Is this where you should drop me?
Driver: Sorry now! Just go!
Passenger: (Continues grumbling as he alights)
Driver: Okay o! Wakanda nigbayen (Ok, just wakanda)
Me: Laughs (thinking what the fudge!!!)
Abeg o! I just want to know- Is ‘Wakanda’ now a driver’s slang? Did I miss a memo? These people wont kill me.
While passing through the alternate route…
Another passenger: I’m Ok o! I’m ok
Driver: (Keeps driving)
Passenger: I’m ok here! Driver! I’m ok!
The conductor suddenly understands what the guy means and bangs on the bus then the driver stops.
Me thinking… Uncle, just say O wa now!You for no pass your bus stop (but what’s my bizniz?
