The festive season is a special time of the year which is generally filled with happy times.
Unfortunately, some are bearing the brunt of December and a controversial video served as another reminder of this.
Twitter user @pmcafrica shared a video which reveals how the driver of a luxury Mercedes-Benz drives off after filling up with petrol.
The unsavoury incident is said to have taken place at a Sasol petrol station in Durban.
Briefly.co.za gathered that the act understandably incensed those who viewed the footage.
Many found the deed despicable and couldn't understand why a seemingly wealthy man would burden the helpless petrol attendant.
Motheo Lebelo (@MotheoLebelo) fumed,
"Disgusting act by the driver and sadly the petrol attendant is going to get deducted for that petrol bill. We as drivers need to start to be more responsible."
Maphum (@Maphumzah) expressed her disbelief:
"Hawu, a whole Mercedes driver."
HawttMessSemester (@Lebogangkk) shared a useful suggestion:
"Dear @SasolSA @TotalSAfrica @EngenSouthAfrica @ShellSouthAfrica. I think it’s high time y’all introduce prepaid authorisation swipe the card first if they paying with cash they pay ahead of time."
Chileshe (@Chilesh71951450) felt that the festive season took its toll:
"December pressures. Probably headed back to Joburg after showing off new car emakhayeni. Had no petrol for return trip."
