- A man has taken to Facebook to share how a petrol attendant helped him in his time of need
- According to the post, the man had been experiencing trouble with his banking app when it came time to pay for his full tank of petrol
- He then explains how the kind attendant trusted him to leave and return with the money for the cash
Abednigo Chauke Yahumba shared to popular Facebook group ImStaying the story about how he stumbled into a little trouble after he went to fill his car with petrol at a local Engen garage. In his lengthy post, he says that he had been experiencing issues with his banking app and was unable to pay for the full tank of gas he just purchased.
"I asked for a full tank, by the time he was done servicing me I realised my banking app was blocked. I tried to reset it but the network was not on my side. Frustration and confusion filled the moment. I humbled myself and asked Tumelo if I could go to the nearest ATM to get my problem fixed so I could come back to pay."
He then explains how Tumelo, the petrol attendant, put his trust in him despite having fears that he may not return with the money for the full tank of gas.
"He never made me feel ashamed, he understood what I was going through at the time. He never did something like this before, yet Tumelo took the risk, trusted a stranger with his job."
Stayers who read about the man's touching experience commended both Tumelo for his great service at the petrol garage as well as Abednigo, who didn't take advantage of Tumelo's honest heart by not returning with the cash.
Here are some of those comments.

Yvonne Berger said:
"Brilliant, hope Engen is proud!"
Mashadi Madiseng Sedaka had this to say:
"Big ups Tumelo."
