Nigerians in the diaspora have taken to social media to share stories about the culture shock they experienced abroad.
Though it is normal for people to experience culture shock when they find themselves in an environment different from theirs, the ones shared by Nigerians are rather hilarious.
Twitter user with the handle @binjoadeniran started the thread by asking tweeps in the diaspora to share what they experienced that sent them into waves of culture shock.
"Nigerians who are abroad? What's the one thing that you've experienced that sent you into waves of culture shock?"
Nigerians flooded the comment section with their experiences.
"Landed in Manchester Airport and took a one hour car ride into Lancashire; in rush hour, cars everywhere.
"About halfway into the ride, something felt seriously wrong, then I realised what the problem was - I couldn't hear a single car horn! The entire ride. E shock me!"
Another tweep with the handle @hapiboi8 said he was invited to a birthday dinner by his friend and upon arrival, he ordered for expensive steak and expensive drink thinking that the celebrant would pay.
According to @hapiboi8, everyone paid for what they ordered for and he had to part with $145. He said if he knew, he would have ordered for only bottle water.
Another tweep shared her experience as a pregnant woman abroad.
"A friend told me about their family friend (a Deeper-Lifer who stayed with them on a short visit). She was begged to wear trousers, but Aunty said "NEVER".
"Few minutes later Aunty ran back inside saying she felt her pad freezing inside her this thing."
"I ironed like 15 shirts first week expecting NEPA to comot light. 10years and still counting e never happen!"
