Backlash INguni Nhlangulela took to Facebook to detail the amazing encounter he had with an absolute stranger.
He and another nurse went out to grab some lunch and were chatting in the queue.
To their delight, the lady standing in front of them in the queue generously decided to pay for their meals.
Nhlangulela instinctively told her: "I'm staying," and they both laughed.
His reference was to the groundbreaking Facebook group that has become such a smash hit with South Africans.
