EARLY MORNING NEWSPAPER STAND ARGUMENT: WHY DO THEY DO IT?


Have you ever seen people (mostly men) gather at the newspaper stand every morning screaming their lungs to dryness, arguing over everything and anything...?

If you are a Nigerian, and you stay in Lagos (I don't know about other states)... your answer is most definitely going to be yes.

We see them every morning!



While some are rushing to the office either to beat the hold-up or just because they are already late, market women and men are trying to tidy up the environment getting ready for the day's job. Some are in their shops praying, some are on the phone calling their clients etc...

You see these young, old, middle aged people gather round the newspaper stand (which they will not buy) reading headlines (never the real content) and arguing over everything and anything...

My question is, why do they do it?
Does it only happen in Lagos?


If you can offer some explanation... please drop a comment. I will really like to know why they do it.
