"Good for self reflection": Lady enjoys a solo date, Mzansi loves her confidence and independence

This is especially true for rainy days when you are at the bottom of the pits. The converse is, however, truer as it is often on those 'bad days' where it feels like all of the friends in your life have suddenly disappeared.

Luckily, one Mzansi woman had anything but a hard time reaching out and getting the help she needed, on the spot too, showing us all a thing or two about friendship goals.

Taking to the socials, the user @zindziswa_m posted a screengrab of an EFT deposit of R10 000 before tweeting "sent" two minutes later, confirming that her 'blesser best friend' had just done the right thing.

Accompanying the screenshot of the notification was a short caption that read:

"I said I’m broke my friend send me 10k."

Social media users gobsmacked, many ask for rich friends

Undoubtedly, Mzansi had a beaming reaction to the tweet, as many gushed with one user, whose handle is @Esterrrrr_ asking:

@twxst_342 added:

"I hope yall seeing what other friends are doing. There's nine of you here, I'm broke and I expect to see 90k by the end of the day."

@ZineidaPomuser rationalised:

"Look at what other friends are doing."

One vocal user @muks15052496 tore into the tweet, highlighting some sentimental points. He said:

"Sharing is a good thing, send some R1000 or R2000 as a gift, it's still a good gesture ... R10K that's a statement. Money doesn't define friendship but its disposition is a huge sacrifice for someone who gives."

To which the original user @zindziswa_m said:

"10k is not a statement in our friendship. Sorry if it's a statement in your friendship."
