South Africans spend thousands of rands on security systems and they never leave their cars unlock all with the purpose to protect their belongings. This is because of the popular believe that every passerby has the intention to take what they can.
However, one man proved those people wrong by showing integrity and honesty not often seen in this day and age.
Briefly.co.za gathered Nathalie Coen took to social media to share the inspirational story of a waiter, who she identified as Eugene.
According to Coen, her wallet fell out of her pocket at Burger Box while she and her family were enjoying a meal.
One of the restaurant's workers, Eugene, picked it up and instead of taking it for himself, he tracked her down.
He asked her what her car's registration number was and after establishing that Coen was the owner, he returned her wallet.
"He said to me, 'Madam today is your lucky day i have picked up your wallet may God bless you,'" Coen explained.
Coen praised the honest man and thanked him for returning her wallet.
"We need more people like you Eugene," she wrote in Afrikaans.
South Africans were inspired by the story and they applauded the man's honesty.
Leanne Fiandeiro commented: "You made God smile❤ Well done!"
