I can't believe the receptionist is not going to take my consultation fee just because I'm from her tribe! I thought corruption was only for the politicians and big businessmen. But here, in a small-town the clinic, I am going to be the beneficiary of a corrupt doctor's receptionist.
Is this a good thing or a bad thing? Well, I don't care right now. I have spent the day running around offices getting papers stamped. Now, I must get a doctor to give me a check-up, approve this medical form, and stamp it.
I was about to walk out of this clinic because the consultation fee alone, without the medical check-up fee, was way too high. But then, the receptionist glimpsed my name on the form and said, "Eh, you mean you are from my village! Why didn't you tell me your surname, I would have done you a favour?"
Then she started chatting away in our language. "If you had told me where you were from, I wouldn't have told you to pay that high consultation fee. In fact, I've got enough for today, so don't bother paying for the consultation. Just wait for the patient who is in now to come out and you can go in for your check-up."
