- A local woman has shared screenshots of text messages between a girlfriend and both her boyfriend and "male bestie"
- In the hilarious screenshots, the male bestie is a ton more helpful than the actual boyfriend
- Many Mzansi ladies who could totally relate to the screenshot shared their responses to the post
A local woman has had social media buzzing after she took to Twitter to share two screenshots of two different conversations with both her boyfriend and her male bestie. In the texts, the lady tells the bf and the bestie how she just got stuck.
"Babe, my car broke down in the middle of nowhere, I'm so scared," she wrote in one text to both the boyfriend and to the bestie.
The responses from the two differed vastly, somewhat proving the point for some woman that "male besties" are not only important to have, but some times better to have than actual boyfriends, who seemingly can tend to get a little too comfortable in relationships.
The boyfriend responded by scolding his girlfriend for not getting her car fixed on time and told her to call a cab.
"Your car has been making funny sounds and you didn't get it checked? Looked what happened now. Call the insurance people and call a cab to bring you home."
He then refused her request for him to fetch her. Meanwhile, her male bestie who was a lot more helpful, advised her to keep safe, offered to fetch her and bring her food.
"Look I'm coming to get you. In the mean time, get inside the car and lock yourself in. Call the insurance company, I'm on the way. Just don't be scared," he says.
The contrasting screenshots sparked a ton of comments from tweeps who shared mixed opinions about its contents.
"If we dating and you have some other dude as a male bestie, we’re no longer dating... I mean I'll be there as a 2 in 1."
"Boyfriends can be careless (not meaning they don’t love you) if they think you can manage. I don’t have a male bestie but guys who don’t have you tend to go further than the one that does. But you will be shocked if I tell you it’s vice versa."
Meanwhile, other tweeps accused the poster of fabricating the whole thing.
In other Briefly.co.za news off sovial media, a local man who calls himself "Mr Smeg" took to Twitter to share a picture of the lunch that he was preparing. The picture, which shows a healthy portion of meat in a pan on a stove, was clearly missed by tweeps who only noticed the expensive SMEG kettle.
Not only that, but his BMW car key as well as his pricey watch can also be spotted in the pictures. Mr Smeg, who is clearly not hiding his flex, was soon at the receiving end of a plethora of roasts from Mzansi tweeps who seemed annoyed at both his Twitter post and the fact that he goes around calling himself Mr Smeg.
The post received over 2 000 likes and over 300 quoted tweets from Twitter users who shared their thoughts on the very weird flex. One user commented that she loved seeing SMEG content being uploaded on the platform.
