It was a rainy Saturday and I urgently needed to fix my phone because it fell into water.

I got to the phone repairer’s shop and there was a middle age woman with two kids about the ages of five who sook shelter at the porch of the phone shop.

When it looked like the rain was about to cease, this woman brought her mat onto the pavement to go about her job which is to sit on the mat and beg for money. Few minutes later  the rain resumed and it looked like the sun was not coming out today so this woman without any form of disability picked her mat and kids and bid the phone repairer goodbye by saying she has closed from work because the weather is not in her favour.

I just could not help but laugh because never for once did I consider begging a job.
