South Africans were left in stitches after a man shared how he was bested by his neighbours' young son.
On Wednesday, a man, who was identified by his Twitter handle @mrmanyoba_big, shared how a young kid hustled him after he asked him to buy a sack of potatoes and keep the change.
Briefly.co.za gathered the young kid saw the sack of potatoes cost more than @mrmanyoba said and it would cut into his profits. So, he kept his share and returned the R90 to the man.
"I gave my neighbour's child R100.00 to buy for me a sack of potatoes for R90.00 and take the remaining R10.00 for helping me. I couldn't believe it that this chap came back eating biscuits and gave me R90.00 change, telling me that a sack of potatoes is R95.00," he wrote.
South Africans wee left in stitches and they praised the young man for being smart and not cutting into his profits.
Neville Taai, who goes by the Twitter handle @TaaiNeville, commented: "So sweet of him, not reducing his service fee, he will get far as a entrepreneur."
Another tweep, @Sivu_Kose, added: "If the lad is clever, he'd charge you another R10 after you gave him the R5 to make up for the price of potatoes. That's if you sent him again to buy you potatoes. He's smart."
Social media user @mbullorfc wrote: "This chap knows his story. R10 is R10 not a R5 change from a bag of potatoes he won’t eat."
