August 21, 2016 – True Confession By Anita Joseph: I Once Begged For Money To Pay For Food

My Most Embarrassing Moment By Anita Joseph

“I never believed I would have to ever beg for money in my entire life but it happened to me this unforgettable and embarrassing day at the airport”.

“Jesus, I was so embarrassed. I was at the airport and needed to use the ATM, because I didn’t have a dime on me. But for some reason the ATM didn’t work and I couldn’t withdraw any money. This is after I had eaten at a restaurant at the airport and needed to pay.

I looked around to see if I could spot anyone I know, until my instinct told me I had no choice but to beg. The mere thought of it made me cringe with horror.

Me, Nita, to beg? It was inconceivable and unimaginable but it was the only reality staring me in the face or I had to face bigger embarrassment from the restaurateurs,”

“ You mean you are an actress and you don’t have any money on you and you depend on ATM. Na Wa for una” the guy barked at her. “I was almost in tears and my flight was already boarding. I approached another guy and told him the same story and what he said was another shock to my soul.

He asked me who I am and said ‘ are you doing this? I told him I am a Nigerian actress but he replied that he doesn’t watch Nigerian films.

To my surprise he gave me the money and behold one of my movies was showing at the lounge.

    Lesson. Always have cash handy. Yeah POS transactions sometimes do fail and the embarrassment is not small. This story is incomplete though, we want to know the reaction of the “good guy” who bailed you out of your predicament at the airport when you let him know your movie was the one on screen at the time? Or, didn’t you tell him?

    It can be embarrassing, and moreover before eating u should av withdrawn some cash first not the other way round, unless u are sure of payg with a card at d restaurant, which of course u had verified with them.
    So next time save urself a lot of trouble by doing d proper thing.
