A woman shared a story about how a petrol attendant used his last R10 to help her with fuel. She pulled up at the garage with only R13 in her pocket to fill up her car. When the attendant saw her dilemma, he did not hesitate to contribute his last penny to help.
Petro Du Plessis Deysel shared her story on the #ImStaying page on Facebook. She shared that she and a colleague were in a car but did not have enough petrol money. They scraped together R13 and went to the petrol station in Stellenbosch.
"I told the petrol attended please don't laugh, but this is all we have..."
Without hesitation the man took out the only money he had, a R10 note, and added it to their money.
"He said you need it more than me."
The stunned but grateful woman shared his photo on social media. She said she would give him a reward for his kindness. Social media users were equally impressed by the man's kind act. Facebook user John Sibenge said:
"May God bring back the R10 ten times."
Wendy Gail Abrahams said:
"He will receive 100-fold back in return. His heart is in the right place. GOD BLESS YOU YOUNG MAN"
