For those of us who can’t FaceTime or be FaceTimed, trusty old WhatsApp has always got us covered. Most of the time, anyway, because Ghana we dey and it’s in your network provider’s contract that they have to disgrace you once in a while. Here are some of the hilarious things that happen when a WhatsApp call goes bad.
What Happens On Every Bad Call: Shout. Repeat
There’s some time after a call goes bad when nobody realizes that it’s gone bad yet. It’s during that window that we shout into the phone asking if the other person can hear us. It’s especially embarrassing when you’re shouting into your phone and all of a sudden the other person can hear you.
Having To Explain For The Entire Country
When you’re talking to friends or relatives outside the country, it’s automatically assumed that whatever is going wrong is from your end. Simply, because … well, you dey Ghana. Anyway, you end up trying to explain and somehow you’re making excuses for your entire country and its trash internet.
The Android Shaming
When WhatsApp starts messing up and you realize that you have to use a different app, it’s usually a cue for whoever has the iPhone to start Android shaming the other person. Why don’t you have FaceTime?
Have you ever been so desperate to talk to someone that you even used Skype? No? Well, lucky you then, because trying to figure out Skype in 2020—crap, scratch that—in 2021 will show exactly why no one uses the app anymore.
