My Confession Because My Heart Is Heavy With Guilt

159

Feel free to judge me. Caught in a dilemma I have a printer which I hold dearly. It's the only thing that is most precious to me and the most valuable thing I have at the moment. Last 3 weeks I fell ill. I didn't have anything to treat myself and I had no one to call on. So I had no option than to post my Printer for sale. A man called and wasn't serious initially and was even flashing me and later Totally ignored me until last week Thursday when he called back to ask for pictures. Some time wasters had initially called me and I had used my own money to take it to the park and they will stop picking calls when it's time for payment. But this man, when he called again on Friday morning for the printer, I told him I can only go to the park unless I confirm payment because I don't want to be wasting my time. He dropped the call and chatted me. Then I sent him my account number. He sent me 20,000 naira then I went and packed the printer, left for the bathroom and took my bath because of the malaria sweat on my body. When I got back into my room, my heart was crushed because I realized I had nothing else again. Everywhere looked so empty. Then I wanted to call the man back that I will send him his money because I didn't want to sell the printer again then I went out to buy airtime only for me to realize I had no Kobo on me. I went straight to the chemist and bought antimalarial drugs after withdrawing from the 20k (still trying to figure out how to call the man and send his money back. Then a second thought came into my head "guy, you are a honest man. Send Me Francis this printer". I went back home, with a heavy heart, packed the printer and got a bike. But when I got to the motor park and wanted to tell the man waybill is 3k, I realized the man has deliberately switched off his phone. (The reason he did that was because he was expecting me to send down the laptop with my own money inside the 20k he sent) I was so angry and frustrated and I was already sweating profusely because of my health. I waited at the park for over 2 hours calling the man all to no avail. Then my call went through and I asked the man why he had to switch off his phone when a trade is on? He denied that his phone wasn't off and that I was calling a wrong number. The next thing he said was "so hope you have sent the printer already?" I got so angry and pissed. And I told him I am at the park and waybill is 3k. He flaired up and insisted that I should have sent it. Then he switched words again and said I should give them the printer that when it gets to Lagos that he will pay. I told the transport Agent and they said no, that they will only transport good that has been paid for. I called the man again to tell him and the man shouted at me that he pays for the waybill when the goods arrive. The stress was overbearing for me and I just told the man that he was being too unfair and stressing me. I got a bike and headed home. my phone fell on the road while I was struggling to hold the printer from falling on the bike. another wahala. I got home and went to sleep without bothering about the phone or anything again I have been broke and starving for a while. I haven't touched money in a while
