My Bolt Chronicles… (Part 6)
For some reason, this bolt driver thinks he is smarter than me.
I just finished recording my podcast with Tayo, we decided to go get something to eat.
After we were done, our ride came… he looked like trouble.
His first issue was that he couldn’t drop Tayo at her place and then take me home, it sounded annoying but we sorted it out.
After dropping her off, it was just me and him left in the car and there was this unnecessary awkward silence😭
What broke the silence was him following another route from the one I know.
“I’m sorry this is not my usual route” I told him
“Don’t worry this place is shorter and we can avoid the traffic at Gwarimpa” he replied.
I let him go because I know the road and I’ve followed it 1–2 times.
“Wait, I don’t have fuel, this fuel won’t take me to your place and bring me back.” he complained.
“So what do we do? There’s a fuel station on the way, you can get some there.” I told him.
We drove to the fuel station and found it closed. Apparently, there’s fuel scarcity in the country.
Now, this is the funny part, he decided that since he couldn’t get fuel at the first station, he needs to drive around to look for fuel. LMAOOOOOOO with my money?
“Sorry, but I have to go home and my money is on the trip. The fuel you will use to drive around, you can use that to take me home” I told him
He insisted it won’t bring him back because he knows and trusts his car.
I stood my ground because it is not my brain this man will use this evening.
He finally agreed and told me I should please wait he needs to urinate.
In the history of all my bolt rides, this is the weirdest I’ve entered and experienced.
I knew he was trying to increase my bill and waste my time but little did he know that I was on PROMO.
When he was done “urinating by the roadside” we continued our journey… then he stopped all of a sudden.
“What is it again?” I was already pissed at this point.
“I just saw one black market selling fuel, wait make I buy am”
And then he took another 30min out of my time.
This guy must be a joke.
Finally, we got to my estate and I insisted he drop me at the gate instead of my house because he has been acting weird all evening.
Now, this is the funny part, with the whole trip that we’ve taken, bolt is supposed to charge me something like 2500 or 3000 but because I was on PROMO… I paid 1k lmaoooo
I could read the look on his face when he ended my trip and saw the amount. It was pain.
I paid him the 1k and stepped out smiling while giving him a 1 star with extra complaints.
Hello and welcome. Thank you for reading. This is the sixth part of my bolt chronicles.
How did it come about? I ride bolt at most everyday to go about my business in the city of Abuja and I’ve encountered different type of bolt drivers. I thought it will be fun if i write about them and how I felt why listening to their stories and hilarious tales.
