Am sure most of you might have been in that kind of situation where you have little or no airtime on your line but you are so stranded that you can't buy a recharge card and you also have no internet access to perform an online topup. This can be really frustrating.

Note that I post stuffs like this because I believe they can come in handy in case of emergency. So unless in a situation where there is probably no recharge card vendor around you or in an emergency, I will really advice you patronise more from the local airtime vendors. I believe they really need the little penny more.

If this has been helpful, don't forget to share.
