Petronella raises the bar
Petronella proved that fear is not a factor for her as she bravely approached her boss, TGOM (Rami Chuene), for a salary increase.
The feisty domestic went on to add that her boss should remain wealthy so that she could be included in her will.
Matu shared the clip along with the motivational message via social media and encouraged others to be bold and strive for what they want.
Petronella solves the festive season blues with 2 bonuses
Many South Africans party up a storm in December but struggle to make ends meet in January.
Petronella solved the conundrum by requesting a double bonus from her boss in December.
She tells TGOM that it’s impossible for her December bonus to last up until January.
TGOM pushes back as the helper already received 3 increases and requested to be part of her boss’ will.
Petronella’s contacts can even solve fertility
We all have those women in our lives who seemingly know about everything and have contacts for any situation.
Petronella fits this description perfectly and even fertility issues aren’t a match for her.
In an episode that aired in May, Cleo (Thandy Matlaila) shared her fertility woes and Petronella revealed that she knows a Dr Blom in Germiston that can solve her issues in an instant.
Social media erupted following the hilarious revelation.
