I’m an easy mark myself, but I’m pretty sure these stories are all face-saving lies — at least, that’s how I understand the subtext of this meme. There is no reason a legit Ghanian doctor couldn’t find some work in health care or related white collar profession.

(Then again, I once got an Uber driver who claimed this was a better deal for her than working as a nurse, so go fig.)

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
