Question of the day: What would you do left alone at a train station?

Here's the question and please answer sincerely. You're on holiday in a foreign country (by yourself) and you miss the last train (midnight) that would have taken you back to your hotel. You're left with only two options; 1. Sleep by yourself at the train station (with no one else around) till daybreak or 2; lodge at the only hotel around the train station...unfortunately its a five-star hotel and the cheapest room there is $2,000 (N320k a night). Bear in mind that you're a regular salary earner...you don't even earn up to N300k a month...but the train station is notorious for violent attacks and is close to a dangerous hood. Which option would you take?

I AM DEFINITELY GOING TO THE 5 STAR HOTEL AND PREPARE A BIG SPACE TO SLEEP RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF THE HOTEL TILL DAY BREAK, SINCE I CAN'T AFFORD TO SLEEP INSIDE THE HOTEL,ITS MORE SAFER THAN SLEEPING AT THE TRAIN STATION.

That price of the hotel is too high for a regular salary earner, I will just look for a night club close by where I can go and have fun all through the night.

Here is what I would do: I will walk up to the 5 star hotel and chill in there lobby till the train starts moving again. In most standard Hotels nobody would harass you in the lobby.

infact, you can even explain to the front desk people your plight and they will allow you to chill at the lobby. chi ke na

Anonymous said...

Worst case, Go to the hotel and sleep close to the wall, opposite it,or close to the gate. At least, if you get in trouble, you can shout help and may bet some from the hotel security. $2000 is a lot for one night, i am sure the hotel has taxi services as well, and would cost you less than $200 to get one to take you to your supposed hotel.

Train is not the only means of transportation.

A five star hotel should have a 24 hour bar or restaurant, go there and buy yourself the cheapest drink. Make sure you drink slowly till the next train comes.

or, You could also call cab.

But if you are stranded with no money, just start a vigil at the station.

Question makes no sense really... You should simply go to the lobby of the five star hotel and wait till the morning.

Anonymous said...

I don't think this question is viable enough. In Europe alone there's an affordable hotel in close proximity to the train station, this is to allow low salary earners afford to lodge in the hotel. But I guess to answer your question it is best to sleep at the train station or call a cab to take you to another cheap hotel (there's internet so you can definitely browse for one)

widdy said...

Simple as ABC.....g to the hotel lobby, sit and pretend to wait for someone, get a newspaper to read....if tired, since its a 5 star, there will be a club, bar,etc....before you know it...its morning.....its called street sense, no school will ever teach you this.

the time of wait shld be approximately 5-6hrs as the last train is mostly arrd half 12am and and first train is 6 or half 6am.

I will go to that hotel, sit in the lobby, order a bottle of water, sit there and nurse it till dawn. No one can ask you to leave. After all you bought a drink. If I feel sleepy I doze off and on. Stroll around small, read a magazine, go to the bar which they will have, at least burn like $100 its better than that train station. All na brain you need. And don't forget they work 24hrs, so u will survive till like 5am then find your way.

Option 3. Call the police and explain your situation. They'll give you a ride to your hotel.

Linda 4get matter. I will sleep in d train station, dem nor violent reach me. Were dose oyibo gang get liver 2 track me. My movement alone go make dem give me chance.

Linda its no big deal, get into the hotel and look for their porters corner and crash for the night or sit @ their lobby and pretend to be working/waiting for someone, when ts late they'll personally offer u a corner to crash cause they dont want u to get into wrong hands, thats why ts always necessary to dress appropriately all times cause they can differentiate an ashi, from a craze woman and a sincere stranded woman
if u sleep at the train station, its either u get killed by a racist or raped by hoodlums
the choice is urs!

it's already a five star hotel, and i am a seven star wise man.
The only option left for me is to work straight to the five star hotel as a wise man to hang out with the rich men at the bar.even collect my contacts from them till morning.

Must i be a mugu to sleep at the train station at that very hour because of $2k ?

wise man is wise man.
