A Nigerian man has rewarded a lady for maintaining calmness in the face of a provocative situation.
According to the businessman identified as Marksman Chinedu Ijiomah, he was returning home from work when a car in his convoy splashed water on the lady who was walking past.
Sharing the story on his Facebook page, Marksman said to his surprise, the lady didn’t scream or curse at the car but instead cleaned herself up and continued her journey.
This act caught his attention and he ordered the convoy to stop as he apologized to the lady.
The businessman then gifted her a cheque of N500,000.
He wrote; ‘‘Today, on our way back from the day’s business, one of the protocol cars mistakenly splashed water on a young lady who was walking by. I am often alert and so when I observed her actions, I needed to apologise.
Unlike what a lot of people would do, the young lady did not scream or curse at our cars . She cleaned herself up without a word and walked on.
This act of calmness in the face of such chaos and disruption called my attention. Immediately, I instructed the cars to park and I called the young lady to apologize on behalf of my team. Of course, when she came, we apologized to her as much as words could convey and I asked her what she did for a living and when she said she was a fashion designer, we thought of the best way to assist her and eventually signed a cheque of half a million naira (500k) to her.
I dislike conducts that put others in uneasy places and I never encourage it. But the calmness that this lady exhibited was truly profound and I couldn’t ignore it.
May our conducts in the face of uneasy situations enable others have a rethink. May it teach others important lessons about life.
