Miss and Mrs
A Twitter user caused a stir on the social network after she expressed anger as to why a customer service agent for a telecoms company will request whether she is Miss or Mrs after he had asked for her name, and Nigerians jumped in as usual.

Miss or Mrs is now an issue? I should have made a thread on the day MTN Customer care asked me whether I use a BlackBerry or Android phone.— Edidiong Udoka (@EdidiongUdoka) March 1, 2017
How can a customer care rep ask you if he should address you as "miss or mrs" and you'll ask him if it matters? Why do you like stress? ????????— April Maey (@AlmostMaey) March 1, 2017
