A young woman opened up a can of worms via social media after sharing a controversial tweet.
Twitter user Progie (@ProgieMinnie) shared a tweet, which included the below caption:
"Why do men stay longer in their cars when they reach home."
Based on the strong reaction, Briefly.co.za gathered this to be commonplace in South African households.
The tweet can be seen below.
A wide range of theories were shared and some were funnier then others.
Many men offered up some reasonable explanations, such as listening to the end of a song or radio show, praying for their families or composing themselves before their household duties commence.
Female tweeps weren't convinced and many suspected the delay down to foul play.
Mr Mabaso Sir (@ThulaniMabaso17) said,
"In as much we warm our Cars before we get in for a journey,it also needs a warm down before we come out of it. Things we dont learn on K53."

"Waiting for the song playing to finish."
Nolo Matlala (@nolorata) said,
"Two or three times listening to @BraAubrey until midnight sometimes yes fall asleep but we have an intimate relationship with cars."
Lolo de’Lolo (@LorenzoMalolo) added,
"Before the nagging begins we need to prepare our minds. Nihluphakabi nina endlini."
In other news, Briefly.co.za previously reported that a high school senior student, Antonio Gwynn, saw the damage protests had done to his community in Buffalo, New York -US, and decided to help clean it up.
Word spread about the 18-year-old's good deeds and a man named Matt Block came forward to help him own a car.
