…forget about their customers after receiving money. Taxi operators are experts at this stupid game. When the conductor is looking out for passengers, he appears to be considerate but also deceptive.
If he is heading to SULFO and you are stopping at Rubangura’s he will still claim to be heading there. After you have paid your fare, the taxi will speed fast to SULFO without stopping at Rubangura’s for you to get off.
They will sheepishly tell you how the police cannot let them park there as if it is something they had just realised. Others from Kimironko to Nyabugogo will just drop passengers at the fuel station instead of the taxi park they were talking about before.
The Hater suggests we should not pay until we reach our destinations.
…shamelessly heap a lot of food on their plates in restaurants.
Although the customer is considered a king, he does not have to be a greedy king. I hate fellows who walk into self service restaurants and put so much food on their plates.
I saw one last week that had so much food that he could hardly see beyond the mountain on his plate. He even shouted at the waitress to pass him the salt shaker yet it was just next to his overloaded plate.
I hate guys who do this and fail to finish the food. However I hate them more when they put the food and actually finish it! What kind of appetite is that?
…have no respect for their jobs.
I am now looking for the phone numbers of some bosses and once I get them I will urge them to fire some of their workers.
I was totally disgusted when I met a female receptionist in Kigali who was busy chewing cheap bubble gum as clients waited. How on earth do these scumbags get jobs?
What was she trying to achieve by looking like an animal chewing cud in front of respectable clients? What happened to work ethics?
If she is chewing gum now then maybe next month she will upgrade to sugar canes! Oh how I wished she had choked on this gum. I would be happy to give her a heavy and painful blow in the back under the guise of helping!
…always turn any conversation into one about football.
The fanaticism that people have developed for European club football has reached nonsensical levels for sure. Do you know that some people cannot talk about anything other than Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Barcelona?
The other day a joker came and quickly turned a rather constructive conversation into one about football by simply bringing up the Arsenal - Barcelona Champions league game. He went on and on about how Lionell Messi is a great footballer.
I thought we all knew that, didn’t we? And besides if I was also earning £100,000 per week then I think I could play like him too. So it’s no big deal.
…pretend to be beautiful by wearing cheap wigs.
Sometimes I really enjoy this job of hating. This is because sometimes I first laugh before I get on to hate.
The other day I saw a lady who was riding on a motorcycle. When it stopped she got off and removed the helmet. Then to everyone’s surprise the smartly dressed lady had a bald head!
However on taking a closer look I realised that she was wearing a cheap hair wig and when she tried to remove the helmet, the wig also followed.
I could not resist laughing at the folly that had led to this unbearable embarrassment.
