The Unbearable Lightness of Being...Broke!
These days--and it's not just because it's an election period--no matter how careful you are with your money, the primary considerations that enter your budgeting are:
1. credits for your phone
2. if you have a car, petrol. If not, transport
Given that quite a number of us own more than one phone, the amount allocated for units becomes all-too-high!
You might have noticed that my series on Westernisation was a non-starter on account of the comments I got when I submitted it to Ghanaweb.com. A combination of bad formatting by Ghanaweb and an attempt to get ideas from an article that might not have been fully-fledged all conspired to get me tremendous criticism from a large number of readers who called me unprintable names.
I still think it was great food for thought to fashion a better argument on the putative westernisation of Accra.
I am only really mentioning it at this stage, because I am wondering how even I whom many might consider middle class is "suffering" from the way money is spent so quickly and easily these days, I wonder how the "working class" and itinerant vendors are doing?
God have mercy on all of us!
