Couch Convo - Myth Or Tradition Or What?

 It is said that if you want to travel with a mortar, no one will carry it unless you put money inside it.....Can someone enlighten us on why this is so? Is there some kind of meaning attached to this or just some old myth?

  2. According to the popular myth it is believed that the vehicle transporting the mortar will stop along the way. My mother sells utensils including mortar and on several occasions drivers usually ask her to put monies in the mortar before the vehicle moves. And on all those occasions she refused n absolutely nothing has ever gone wrong. A business she started while I was in secondary school n I am in my husband's house now.

  4. My Neighbor told me about it cause she just came back from benue state..she said she wanted to come back with mortar back to lagos but they did not allow her to put it in the bus..reason is that the bus will not move if they put in there. She said she have to leave it behind then called her mum to come and take it back home..

    If you are travelling with a mortar,to avoid the vehicle carrying it not to stop on the way,you put Money inside the mortar..

  14. I travelled with small mortar from my hometown to America. Nothing happened. Some times I use it for small stuff like grinding nutmeg, ginger . Etc . instead of running the blender.
