- A lively old man and a giving cashier have captivated Mzansi with their story
- The 91-year-old could not afford his groceries with the R100 note he carried, so the cashier generously offered to pay
- Mzansi shared their reactions to the sweet post in the comments section
A charming old man, 91, has Mzansi's hearts melting. Mirriam Coetzee shared her father's touching story on Facebook after the sweet man returned from his regular shopping trip with a lot more groceries than he could afford.
In a heartwarming post shared on Facebook, Coetzee tells users her 91-year-old dad is still very active and chooses to do the shopping alone sometimes. On one occasion, he had only taken a R100 note to their local Woolies and could not pay for all the items in his basket.
The frugal spender, however, was lucky enough to find himself at the till of one very kind cashier who generously offered to pay for the old man's extra groceries.
The madala's daughter added that she's very grateful for the cashier's generosity.
Mzansi took to the comments section to share their thoughts on the sweet post. Check out some of their comments below:

"I wish this post gets to the Woolworths management and appreciate this cashier. Nowadays in our generation, we don't have much sympathy. Thanks again for the appreciation post and God bless our old man."
Joanne Caren Hardman said:
"Wow. He looks in his early 60s!! What a wonderful looking gentleman."
Sue Keefe said:
'Wonderful that he is still able to take himself to the shops - that's what keeps him so spry and young!"
Belinda Rothman Jacobs:
"Does not look his age at all."

Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that BI Phakati is at it again, this time helping two very deserving disabled men out on the streets of Mzansi. The good Samaritan took to sharing his deeds in a viral video that has since been viewed more than 100k times.
In a three-minute clip, BI begins by introducing himself to a friendly man sitting in his wheelchair at a local garage. It's clear the old man does not have much but still, seems happy and willing to share his troubles with the younger man.
BI then offers the madala a fresh pie and some cooldrink before leaving him with a few R100 notes.
In the next part of the clip, the young man performs similarly kind acts, offering a friendly man who struggles to walk a few R100 notes to get by. The man's smile absolutely radiates through the screen as he receives the kind gift.
Mzansi was definitely inspired by the young man's selfless act of kindness. Check out some of the comments below:
