- A man recently got more than he bargained for when he threw a surprise party for his girlfriend, her other bae used it as an opportunity to propose to her
- His story caused a stir on social media
- Briefly took to Facebook to hear South Africans' thoughts about the man's tale
Briefly.co.za recently shared a story about a man who threw a surprise party for his girlfriend, only to have another man use the scene to propose to her.
Briefly asked South Africans what they thought of the story - which left the man understandably unimpressed but had social media in stitches.
Here's what Mzansi had to say.
Many South Africans felt sorry for the man in the situation, but found the story hilarious. One Facebook user, Bulee Mzilikasi, said she thought it sounded like the plot of a low-budget movie.
However, some said that the man was lucky that this happened now and not later on in the relationship, with one user writing, "Take the positive part bra…she showed what type of person she is."
Others, however, sided with the woman. Thandi Maerman, for example, said, "Clearly she wanted to get married and the guy throwing surprise parties wasn't ready."
One user event on to argue that the real winner in this situation was the man who proposed.
"Wow, the one who proposed saved money for catering, decor and beverages," wrote Nxumalo Njabulo. "Give that man a Bells."
