Mzansi applauded a group of kind-hearted car guards who went out of their way to prevent a car from getting wet inside from the rain after the owner left the window open.
The owner of the car parked outside Lonehill Shopping Center in Sandton and left the window open when it started to rain. The car guards working in the parking lot, gathered around the window and covered it with cardboard.
A social media user, Priscilla Michelle, took to Facebook to share photos of the genuinely helpful actions of the hardworking men. She expressed her gratitude for car guards who try to earn small change by helping people, but are met with hostility from drivers.
Priscilla argued that people who believe the car guards only watch cars when they see the owner returning are unrealistic.
Priscilla said, ”They don't take your kids college fund. Spare some change even a R20 once in a while (one less Red Bull) which is bad for you anyway. See now they’re saving your life too…”
Other social media users agreed with Priscilla saying that people would often prefer to spend that R20 on ‘boomed parking’ which he claims is also dangerous, Briefly.co.za discovered.
Candice Michelle Roodt, a Facebook user, applauded the car guards and said she always tips them.
“I love this and always tip them and if I don’t have change I’ll buy them a loaf of bread and a juice, you never know where their next meal is coming from. You know the saying 'when you have more than you need build a longer table, not a higher fence'"
