A Tale of Disappointment: Nigerian Lady Shares WhatsApp Vendor Woes

A recent social media post has sparked a wave of commiseration and amusement among Nigerians. The story centers around a lady who ordered food through a WhatsApp vendor, only to receive a meal that fell far short of expectations.

The aggrieved customer uploaded a series of images, showcasing the stark contrast between what she envisioned and the unfortunate reality. One photo displayed a mouthwatering arrangement, boasting an assortment of delicious-looking meats, exactly what she had ordered with anticipation.

However, the following image shattered her dreams. The delivered meal was a pale imitation of its advertised counterpart. Disappointment turned into outrage, prompting the lady to vent her frustrations in the comments section.

Her post resonated with many. Fellow social media users chimed in, sharing their own experiences of being misled by online vendors. Favy, a commenter with the username Favy, expressed a strong desire to confront the vendor in person, perhaps even seeking retribution from the delivery rider.

“I will call the rider bike pay him to take me to where he got the food,” Favy wrote, “I go too beat that vendor ehhhhn,” conveying a strong intent to hold someone accountable (ehhhhn being an emphasis for effect).

Another commenter, Big.bee, took a more cautious approach, advocating for publicly identifying the vendor to warn others. “Tag am [Tag him/her] make we no go order from there,” Big.bee advised, aiming to prevent similar disappointments for others.

Omo Toyosi, with a username hinting at playfulness (Omo meaning “child” and Toyosi possibly being a name), offered a lighthearted observation. “She don give you plantain as compensation,” Omo Toyosi remarked, suggesting the vendor perhaps included the plantain as a form of apology for the underwhelming meal.

The situation even sparked humor. Cake vendor in Oko poly, seemingly referencing their own profession, offered a solution focused on speed: “Chop am fast fast you no go notice,” which translates to “Eat it quickly and you won’t even notice” (implying the disappointment would be less severe if consumed rapidly).

SHALLYCUTE, another commenter with a username that likely reflects a love for cuteness (SHALLY being a potential name and CUTE being self-explanatory), expressed skepticism. “Nothing u wan tell me na u cook dis food if ur not the one tag the food plug,” their comment implied disbelief, suggesting the lady might be exaggerating the situation or had not identified the vendor properly.

The conversation continued with a mix of outrage and amusement. Only❤️‍🩹One❤️‍🩹Sopheeyah questioned if the customer might be exaggerating the issue, asking “You chop spaghetti abi you no chop spaghetti?” (Did you eat the spaghetti or not?), while thereal_teefeh offered a more neutral perspective, simply asking “She deliver Abi she no deliver?” (Did she deliver or not?).

Becky echoed Big.bee’s call for identification: “Tag him/her so we won’t order from her if this is true,” underlining the desire to hold the vendor accountable if the story was genuine.

COOLEST, possibly a regular online shopper, shared a preventive measure: “That’s why I mostly use my own pictures for advertisement to avoid this kind of thing,” their comment suggesting using self-produced images instead of relying on potentially misleading vendor photos.

Eniola provided a more dramatic solution: “You suppose climb bike follow that dispatch rider go her house,” which translates to “You should have hopped on a motorbike and followed the delivery rider to her house,” expressing strong feelings of wanting to confront the vendor directly.

The lightheartedness continued with PRETTY_ LEE’s comment: “If I see this one chop now I don turn to princess be that,” (If I ate this, would I turn into a princess?), adding a touch of whimsy to the situation.

B dreh joined the humorous commentary, poking fun at the unappetizing plantains: “And Na person go marry this vendor ooo, unripe chips, because that’s not plantain,” (Someone will actually marry this vendor? Those are unripe chips, not plantains!), their comment highlighting the disappointment with the supposed plantain as well.

The social media post, though focused on a single customer’s experience, has snowballed into a wider conversation about online food vendors in Nigeria. It serves as a cautionary tale for those considering WhatsApp vendors and a space for shared frustrations and humor for those who have already encountered similar disappointments.
