One day, my father talked on his phone for a long time. His airtime got used up before he could end his talk. He was conversing with his workmate, Mr. Obadiya. He decided to send me to buy more airtime
Using my bicycle, I rode as fast as a horse. I returned within ten minutes with airtime. When I reached home, I found my father busy listening to the news on radio. He was so attentive that he didn’t want any disturbance. He therefore, gave me the mobile phone to load the airtime for him.
I was excited because I was going to do so for the first time. I got the airtime card and scratched it. Since I did not know what to do after scratching, I opened the phone. Then I took it to my father thinking I had done the right thing.
My father immediately tried to call his friend. He dialed repeatedly but the call could not go through. ‘’Have you loaded the airtime?’’ he asked me. I responded happily that I had loaded it. As he removed the battery, the airtime card dropped on the floor. ‘’oh my son! You didn’t know how to load airtime!’’ he laughed. I was disappointed that I did not load airtime for my father. He realized that I was sad. He held me in his arms and said, ‘’don’t worry my son. let’s do it together.’’ Then he loaded as I was watching. I was very happy to learn how to load airtime.
