Loyalty in Hawking

A Kwashieman Traffic Scene

November 10, 2016,  

Two elderly women hawk plantain chips and sachet water.

Plantain seller: The mate said you gave him only 70 pesewas change.

Pure water: Really?

Then she hurried after the car which was stuck in traffic.

Plantain seller: Ah, where are you going? Come back and let’s continue hawking. It’s just 10 pesewas.

Me: Integrity is everything. You never know what people say about some of the things you do, even those you do subconsciously. Maybe tomorrow the mate might decide not to buy from her because he felt cheated of 10 pesewas.
