I went to a supermarket to pick something to eat.
As I was walking down the isle, I noticed a man staring at me. I looked at the man and kept walking to the front counter to pick Gala.
As I picked it, I turned to see the man right in front of me.
I smiled and greeted him, then went on to get Lacasera.
The man followed me through the store.
I was getting a little nervous and mad because he was following me without saying anything.
Trying to be friendly I said, ”Hi!”
The man finally said, he is sorry for staring at me, but I look like his youngest son. They just buried him two weeks ago.
I felt silly for getting mad as I expressed my sincerity to him.
He said he was fine as he knows his son is with the Lord.
Then he asked me to do him a favour.
I said, ”Sure, if i can”.
He said he was a bit sad that his son never said goodbye before passing on.
He asked me to get in line behind him, and as he left the store I should say, Goodbye dad! So that he can have a sense of closure.
Though his request was weird, I however agreed to grant him.
As he collected his bags from the cashier and walked away, I said, ”Goodbye dad!”.
He turned and said, ”Goodbye my dear son!”.
When the cashier calculated my bill she said the total is 12,500 Naira.
I screamed, ”For what? How can a Lacasera of 120 Naira and 50 Naira Gala turn to that amount?”.
He replied, ”Your dad said you are paying for his bill too!”.
