Lebo Msk took to Facebook to detail a recent experience and to reveal the impact that honesty and kindness can have on someone else's life.
Lebo recently returned home from a trip to the shops to purchase groceries. However, she soon realised that she had some extra cash that was unaccounted for.
She realised that the cashier incorrectly gave her an extra R50 worth of change.
While most people would take this as their cue to enjoy some extra money, Lebo feared the impact it would have on the cashier.
Lebo drove back to the store in search for the cashier in question.
After some deliberation with the store manager, Lebo explained that she needed to speak to the cashier to return the R50.
The manager then confirmed that the cashier was indeed out by R50 and that it adversely impacted her.
However, both the manager and cashier were blown away by Lebo's refreshing sense of honesty.
The story has been shared via the #ImStaying group and Briefly.co.za noted that it went viral.

"Amen honest is the best policy. God bless u."
