Remember ‘Honesty is the best policy’?
A few days ago, I was trying to order lunch from an Instagram business online. I know, I’m always ordering food lol. Anyway, I was this close to completing the transaction and asked for bank account details. She provided her bank account details in a ‘last name, first name, middle name‘ format. Why was this a problem for me? Although I know this is how we write our names in Nigeria, I am now used to writing names in a ‘first name, middle name, last name‘ format. I asked her to verify the order of the name but by the time she responded, I slept already. She asked me in the morning if I would still make the transaction and I politely explained my ‘name confusion’ coupled with Western Union declining my transaction. I didn’t say I will get back to you, I just told her the truth.
