Being a worker comes with a lot of real struggles that take the excitement out of work and make us want to just join the gang of people that are making money even in their sleep. There are so many real struggles every worker on a 9-5 in Lagos will understand, from the time we have to wake up, to getting the job well done.
Here are 5 real struggles Workers face in Lagos.
Nothing breaks our heart like the evil sound of an alarm! Its totally a show spoiler for every worker because sleep always find a way to only get sweeter when our alarm screams us out of bed.
- Getting A Bus
After leaving the house early and getting to the bus stop, we are faced with this annoying crowd, waiting to force their way into the next available bus. It is usually at times like this; when we might have waited and chased a couple buses to no avail, that we make up our mind that Nigeria is the worst country ever.
The real road enemy, the idea of traffic showing up first thing in the morning when we should be getting things done at work, is just too depressing; especially in Lagos. Workers totally have this struggle to face every day, only that some days just choose to be good!
This is where the whole lecture about how its impossible to please everyone begins to finally make sense to us, after one or two clients bombard us with a thousand other ways they want their jobs done, even when you have possibly done your best for the job, we just get weak all together.
- Dead Line
Nobody likes to be faced with a dead-line when they are nowhere close to finishing up. Enough reason employers like to ask if we can work under pressure because this is one pressure too many; especially when it can’t be postponed.
Workers have just enough struggles to face every week day, it gets really depressing and tiring but its something that has to be done; at least, to get bills paid!
