- A gentleman took the bold decision to place his bottle of expensive champagne in the freezer
- When he eventually wanted to remove it, he discovered that the bottle had broken in the freezer drawer
- He blamed his ancestors and social media users had a lot to say about the matter
Alcohol has become a very precious commodity during the nationwide lockdown.
With government placing a ban on the sale of liquor, South Africans are cherishing every lost drop of alcohol.
Twitter user Tshepo Mashego (@TshepoTsala) was therefore in anguish when he made a disturbing discovery recently.
He decided to chill a bottle of Moet champagne in his freezer. Upon his return, he discovered that the bottle had burst open, with the contents spilt in the freezer draw.
The disillusioned man shared his woes via Twitter and seemingly placed blame on his ancestors for the unfortunate situation.
Tweeps were on hand to share some advice. Briefly.co.za gathered the comments ranged from sad to comical.
Justin (@j_dominic) shared some practical advice:
"Eish, sorry. But please wrap broken glass in newspaper before putting it in the trash, so that waste collectors and pickers don't get hurt."
Mbaliyethu Sithole (@MbaliyethuS) also took the pragmatic approach:
"Take a spoon ,sit down and dig in mntase."
Evans B (@evebee4) said,
"Am struggling to feel sorry for you...u froze a bottle! Deep freeze. Lets say your ancestors had a lesson to teach u on this one."
Tshepang At Home (@TshepiMolisana) sympathised with the young man:
"My thoughts and prayers go out to you at this difficult time."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Health Minister Dr Zweli Mkhize has put his weight behind the current ban of cigarettes and alcohol.
The restrictions are a bone of contention for many citizens, but the man leading SA's Covid-19 response has voiced his support.
