A woman stunned people in an Internet cafÃ© along Kampala Road when she demanded for help to send e-mail in her own handwriting with her signature inscribed on it.
â€œNyabo nyamba. I am supposed to send this information to UK now and they want it handwritten with my signature.
â€œI am in a hurry to send it now. How much is it?,â€ the woman asked a surfing assistant in a mixture of Luganda and English.
â€œWe canâ€™t send handwritten e-mail. May be you can go to a post office or pay for faxing services,â€ the surfing assistant advised the woman.
â€œOmpitta musiru. Literally meaning â€œYou think am a fool.â€
â€œYou think I donâ€™t know what I want. If you are not willing to help me, let me know, cafes nyingi mu tawuni,â€ the angry lady insisted. People around could not believe what they were hearing and seeing.
The woman was insisting over something impossible.
She kept on making noise in the cafe, claiming that the surfing assistant was not kind to the customers and did not know his job.
â€œIs it because am not rich that you are not taking care of me. The fact that I was asked to send this e-mail handwritten with my signature, has a purpose,â€ the woman said.
â€œThat is the problem with some Ugandans even when one knows nothing about something, they pretend to be experts at it,â€ one customer said.
Moments later the furious lady stormed out of the Internet cafÃ© spitting fire.
â€œLet me go somewhere else where they know how to handle customers,â€ she said before walking off.
