A woman known as Angel working at a sporting shop has narrated her story about how she became pregnant and lost her old job as a restaurant manager.
Confiding in a new worker, the woman said that she and her children have been living in a shelter. Before getting to that place, they at different times slept at bus stops, Goal Cast reports.
While revealing her secrets, the woman did not know that she was being filmed and the new worker was helping to do just that.
It turned out that the person that she had been talking to all the while was actually her boss. The CEO had shaved his head and grew a bushy moustache to create a perfect disguise.

How her life changed
To present the lady with the biggest surprise of her life, she was invited to a ceremony she thought was a sales pitch for the company.
At the event, the CEO announced that he would be promoting the woman to an assistant manager and she would get a $14,000 (R210k) raise.
That was not all, the man gave her a $250,000 (R3.8 million) cheque to get herself a place. He said:
”I don’t want you living at that homeless shelter ever again.”
When Angel got the cheque and saw the amount, she collapsed on the floor in big disbelief. In reaction, she said:
“I’m going to tell my children that we’re not going back to the shelter any more, that we’re going to have our own place. They can be kids.”

Man walks to the office on first day
Meanwhile, Briefly News earlier reported that a young student, Walter, had to trek 20 miles on his first day to resume at his new workplace. His car broke down the night before so he resorted to going on foot.
Before morning, the young man tried to see if his friends could take him but nothing came up as it was such short notice.
The young man never allowed that to discourage him. Instead of staying back, he decided to walk all the way.
