I was puzzled. How can someone be so mean? I asked myself.
These were my reactions the other day when I saw a young man bit his index finger in regret for not being the first person to see a purse lying fallow beside him where he sat in a public bus.
So, I was moving from point A to point B in the popular Lagos yellow Danfo bus when the young man alighted from the bus at Fadeyi and his eyes traveled to the back seat where he alighted from, and that was when he bit his finger.
I was not the only one who noticed his act. The woman and her daughter who sat beside him also saw him. The woman happened to be the owner of the purse. She picked it up, muttered some thankful words to her stars and tucked the purse deep inside her hand bag.
We moved on.
