Every morning on the way to work, the same thing happens to me (and to many others, i assume). It is getting so boring. I am starting to think that there is something going on that is way beyond my age. And my reasoning capacity. Like in that movie…
Anyway, why would the same guys walk past you and try to trick you into exposing your greed so they can take your money every morning? EVERY MORNING?
It goes down thus: Two guys walk towards me but i can’t tell they are together. One is a little infront of his crime buddy. The one nearest to me drops the same old bundle of money (and i use ‘money’ in a very loose sense). He walks on so i am supposed to assume that he has genuinely dropped his inheritance of Uganda Shillings 1000 times x. The guy behind him jerks into action; he grabs the wad of bills and turns away to walk in the direcition i am headed.
Instantly, he strikes up a coversation. I have a new best friend. Because i saw him pick somebody’s money. If i don’t tell, he wont tell and we can split the loot 50/50.
The first time this happened, i actually picked the money and ran after the oblivious victim. His friend kept on hissing for me to let it go but i was so naive…Eventually, i caught up with the dude and tagged at his shirt. He had to turn around. I gave him his loot but i think by then, the plan had been blown apart.
But that musta been like four years ago. Since then, i have learnt that this is some sick trick to rob greedy folks. I have also learnt that many things can happen in the space of one day.
Four years later, peeps be tryina fool me with this strange trick? What am i missing?
