The furious man told him that he couldn't pay for those as the instruction was clear and duly communicated, and that he was expecting a bill of N5000, and other losses are at his peril.

The vendor screamed and cursed him. This made Daralta realize how conflict arises so easily in society.

The vendor kept on asking, "Is it good?". Deep down, the lawyer pitied him, but he couldn't be liable for those extras. He however paid N6000 in the end.

The tweet has sparked reactions amongst netizens as many shared their thoughts about the incident.

While many noted that the vendor was wrong, others maintained that Daralta should have paid for the extras.

“Appeal to Emotion does not move a lawyer". On top Ice cream. While I get the point you're trying to make I'd like to also point out that humanity should always take precedence. Gain knowledge but also be wise in its application. For God's sake pay the 10k but educate him as well.”

@Xendusdelivery said:

“And you brought it here? His gain on one ice cream is less than 10 naira, he's just a vendor and does not own the ice cream, in fact, they return the ones they couldn't sell to the distributor.”

@EdithMartha5 said:

“I beg to differ cos appeal to emotions can actually move a Lawyer but it all depends on the circumstances of each case.”

@OGtheEnergee commented:

“The vendor is a crook. He found a way to sell more, that's what he did. You gave him simple instruction and he flaunted it. If you had paid him the 5k beforehand, you would be surprised that nobody would collect N300 and N200 ice cream, he would be vigilant.”

@MmantiUmoh reacted:

“How were some of the law students so dishonest? I mean it was a Instruction: 100 Naira Ice Cream. The people who took 200 and 300 should have paid the balance. Where are the harbingers of law and order so lawless and disorderly?”

@Preciousfehyn commented:

“Many ppl will talk abt humanity on dis post meanwhile we condone and allow people to get away wit indiscipline anyhow. The order has a fixed value, he shldnt hav released more than 50. Dis is d big diffrnce btwn wot makes oyinbo countries better dan ours. Deal is always deal.”

@1dipowerplay reacted:

“I think immediately after the instruction, you both should have concluded on the total amount before he started giving out the ice cream. He would have it at the back of his mind that he is not getting more than 5k.”

@derekbranding said:

“This is why I always have issues with people who can't follow instructions & rules. Am sure he wanted to make more.”

As he kept on complaining over how expensive the food was, a male waiter walked straight to his table and served him and each of his friends a plate of jollof rice. His attitude suddenly changed as he began to move away from the meal and asked who was going to pay for it since he had not made any order.

At that point, he started to shout and proceeded to make his way out of the restaurant, a move to signal that he truly wasn't going to pay for the meal as he initially threatened. At the time of writing the report, the video had gathered over 11,000 likes and 300 comments.
