It impossible. Thus, he did not totally subscribe

To what the man said, if he goes to the market,

He will reluctantly take survey of the prices of the


Goods. And after taken the survey he will

Justify himself when things have not changed.

However what he did not expect happened during


The Coronavirus lock-down, because he

Never expected what happened within the short

Period of the lock-down. He has in his stock


Some goods which he has purchased from

Different wholesalers in anticipation for something,

But when the lock-down was invoked, he could not


Make the sales in those things for everything

Ceased to function in his country. The government

After about four weeks of total lock-down and


The populace have started groaning that the

Lock-down should be eased, for after all it is

One thing that would lead to the death of anyone


In the world, there has not been anyone who

Has died that medical personnel have not ascribed

Something to have led to his death. Thus, the people


Said if the government do not want to be coming

To different houses and be taken people out with

Their families dead, she should ease the lock-down


Because of hunger that has penetrated different

Houses within the island. Government considers this

And yielded to what the people said and eased the


Lock-down in the island. After the lock-down

Has been eased, a bit for those who are not government workers

Neither earning salaries nor having anything to do with

The government so that they would not be finding

Dead bodies inside houses and on the streets,

He also got out to open his business store for


That transient hours that the government has

Given people to be trading with their face masks

On, having soap and water at hand (or sanitizer)


And body thermometer ready. When he opens

His business, he discovers that customers throng his

Store to get some of his stored goods and he sold


All within short time. He was happy for selling

Those things and was rejoicing that what he has lost

During the weeks of lock-down has been recovered


In a miraculous way but unknown to him that

Nothing of such has happened but he instead has

Been hit by business set back. After selling all those


Goods in his store and he decides to go and buy

Them back from where he used to buy those products

He discovers something weird and it was that the


Capital and the gains he has made on those things

Cannot even buy one percent of the goods he has sold

Back, for everything has skyrocketed. It was not as if


The inflation was 20 % or even 50%, the inflation

On those goods were in the tune of 300% and more

And he never had a 20% gain on any of the products.


When he was told the prices of those goods he

Cannot but exclaimed on hearing the prices, “from

When till when?” He retorted, within four weeks, this


Has happened? It was surprising, then he remembered

His mentor’s advise that he should be taken price survey of

Goods he is selling. He has ignored the advice, assuming


He has yielded to the advice then, he would not have

Found himself in such a mess, he would not have

Experienced set back that he is experiencing now.
