South African Twitter users are absolutely furious after a man pulled paid far less for his fuel than he owed. In a video uploaded to the social network site by @bisah_q, a man can be seen paying a petrol attendant R20 after he was asked for R210.
The man's face is not visible through the video but he can be heard joking around with the attendant, saying that the R20 is "two ten". The video has gained over 320 000 views since its upload on Monday.
Many tweeps said that it was a prank but scrolling through the replies it was evident that the man did not pay in full for his fuel. Twitter users came together and managed to locate the attendant and revealed that his boss had sorted the payment out.
The petrol attendant was identified as Wiseman by Tumi Sole and his banking details were posted on @tumisole's Twitter.
Briefly.co.za took a look at what some frustrated Saffas had to say:
"This is sad. Why do this to another human. Imagine someone coming to your workplace and making a fool of you then post it on social media, for laughs."
"This is not funny at all... Just for clout, actually, this is disrespectful to the petrol attendantts, this guy is humble. He doesn't deserve this, next thing you're doing your job, the next thing you trending."
Fortunately, Wiseman did not face any issues with his job and many people sent him money. His story, thankfully, had a happy ending. Briefly.co.za previously reported on another petrol attendant who helped a man in need.
Abednigo Chauke Yahumba shared a story to Facebook group ImStaying about how he stumbled into a little trouble after he went to fill his car with petrol at a local Engen garage. 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.
