Personally for me, I do think Zip / postal Code means same thing, Oh well, I possibly cannot know every thing therefore please do not quote me as I stand to be corrected. However, A couple of times, people have one way or the other asked me, ‘Samuel, please what’s the Zip code for Nigeria?’, ‘What is the postal Address for my area In Lagos?’.
Okay, do you know what I usually use as my state zip code when filling forms online? I just use 23401. Yeah, I know that might be wrong and funny but it has always worked for me. More so, are you aware that when you use 111111 as your ZIP code when filling an online form, it will be accepted? Yes it will because that code simply means ‘I don’t know it’. Yeah, I just gave you an hint there right?
