Hey Faves, this entry really had me like this "😲". See Anu's story for yourself.
Broooo, my story probably tops the chart. Reliving it as I’m writing sef is making me cringe!
Anyways, I have this ritual where I pull out my laptop during my morning ride, to catch up on my reading. But this fateful day, I had forgotten to book my shuttle the day before and had to use danfo! *inserts cries in had I known*. So out of habit, I whipped out my laptop to read. Till today I don’t know how it happened, but when I stepped down from the bus and it drove away, I realised something felt off! Took me a hot minute to realise that my laptop was gone! I’ve lived in Lagos for 6 years and I felt like a “sharp Lagos girl”. Having this happen to me just made me reflect on life generally.
I got to the office to report a “missing laptop” to my IT manager, and let's just say he wasn't feeling my life choices. His vibe was basically, "You did WHAT?!"
So, what's the moral of this tragic tale? Shuttlers isn't just a ride; it's a sanctuary. It's where laptops stay put and the only drama you'll encounter is deciding whether to listen to a podcast or an audiobook.
Yikes, talk about a "lesson learned the hard way" moment! Thank you for sharing this eye-opener with us, Anu. It's a potent reminder that sometimes, convenience and peace of mind are worth more than we realize. One second you're a "sharp Lagos boy/girl," and the next, you're rethinking your life choices—and probably your transport options!
So folks, got any "hold-my-laptop" stories that left you shook? We're all ears. Share with us.
Stay sharp and, above all, stay Shuttlers-smart!
