- Brian asked restaurant owner, Yaron, for work as he needed R 180 for transport for his job
- Yaron obliged begrudgingly as it was Brian's second request for work
- A few months later, Brian returned hoping to repay Yaron
Yaron Wiesenbacher proudly recalled how an unemployed man he once lent money to, finally found employment and wanted to repay him.
Yaron says Brian came into his shop one evening, smiling from ear to ear, but Yaron didn’t remember him, despite his familiar face. Brian gushed that he had finally got a job and was very excited about the opportunity to be a cleaner at a hotel.
Brian had been making a living as a car guard, Briefly.co.za found.
Brian said that he needed a form for the job which would cost R 150 to get. He asked if he could help Yaron out with some work, hoping to earn the money. Yaron obliged and asked him to clean the kitchen for 30 minutes.
A few days later, Brian was back, having lost a little bit of his sparkly enthusiasm as he needed R180 for transport money. Not having any work for him, Yaron begrudgingly gave him a R 200 note, hoping that Brian would not come into the store again.
Three months later, Brian was back and so was his bright smile. He hadn’t come to ask for work but simply to slide a R 200 note on the counter, saying “here you go, my friend.”
Brian had been eagerly awaiting the moment he could return the money that a kind stranger had given him, and felt proud that he was finally able to do so.
