Common ‘Unruly’ Behaviours Displayed By Nigerians-BBC

According to a BBC article published recently, Nigerians are one of the most unruly sets of human beings around.

As the article goes, here are the most common bad behaviour exhibited by Nigerians:  

The Nigerians who will never stand in any queue, who must make their way to the front as soon as they arrive

The drivers who will never stop at a traffic light, who consider it anathema to allow an empty space in front of their vehicles

The invisible individuals who excrete piles of solid waste on the pavements, night after night

The staff who take three weeks’ leave to attend their father’s burial, then another three weeks later in the year to attend their father’s burial, again. “That first one was my father who paid my school fees,” they say. “This one is my biological father

aunrulyThe mothers who threaten the head teacher with fire and brimstone because their children were punished for coming late to school

The bosses who, in the presence of their entire staff, praise you for your excellent work skills, then wink and ask if you also have excellent “bedroom skills”, while everyone present bursts out laughing

The top government officials who show off their importance by the number of people jam-packed into their waiting rooms. They give you an appointment for 7am, knowing full well that they do not intend to see you until 10pm

The air hostesses who frown throughout the flight, to avoid giving you the false impression that they are at your beck and call

The “big men” and “big women” who scream “Do you know who I am?” when you ask for some identity before they can be allowed through the gate

Those who ring the airline to request that the flight be delayed for their sakes, while their fellow passengers gaze out of the aeroplane windows for an hour, wondering why the flight is delayed.
