A Johannesburg hustler saw an opportunity when others only saw a problem- and it made him money a rainy day.
One local man decided to take a bad situation and turn it into something profitable. After the streets of Jozi flooded following heavy rains, people were having difficulty crossing the roads.
So, a Joburg hustler decided to help them out- for a cost of course! Footage, which was posted on South Africa Live's Facebook page on Tuesday, showed the entrepreneur helping people cross the road with a trolley.
Briefly.co.za saw several South Africans enlisted the help of the hustler and he got his money's worth for the back and forth trips.
Social media users found the video both hilarious and inspiring at the same time. Some added at least he was not turning to a life of crime and figured out some other way to make some extra cash.
Dawid Giliomee commented: "clever dude, at least he is not robing and stealing."
Bahlerh Sihle Chiliza added: "Fair and square..no crime involve"
Jay Nair wrote: "Smart thinking, they are providing a service. Atleast they are not mugging & robbing people like others."
Take a look at the video, which gathered over 24k views in just four hours, below:
