Lizzy Lizbet has made her fellow South Africans proud after she displayed a rare measure of honesty recently. According to a post made by the local woman in SA group ImStaying, a petrol attendant made the grave mistake of undercharging her for her tank of fuel.
"I asked the petrol attendant to put R600 which he did. To my ignorance, when he gave me the machine to put in my pin, I did so without checking the amount as we were talking me and him."
She then explained how she left the garage and soon thereafter received a frantic phone call from the attendant explaining how he had charged her the wrong amount for the petrol that she just purchased.
"My sister, I made a mistake, I put R600 petrol for you and only took R200, I beg you my sister please come back and pay," he told me he got my number from the guy I was standing with. She wrote:
Lizzy again explained how she went back and paid the outstanding the amount, much to the delight of the petrol attendant Thabang, who now greets her happily every time she comes to pour fuel.
Her petrol story was met with tons of thumbs-up from Stayers who applauded her for her honest act. Here are some of their comments.

Briefly.co.za previously reported BI Phakathi has done it again. At the receiving end of his hand, which seems to always be giving, was a lucky young petrol attendant. In the video, BI can be heard asking the unsuspecting petrol attendant about his job.
After the attendant is done pouring his petrol, BI then pays for it. Just as the petrol attendant thinks the exchange is over, BI hands him some money. And right when the surprised yet delighted attendant thinks it's time to thank him and say goodbye, BI offers him more and more cash.
The excitement and shock are clear on the attendant's face as it becomes increasingly obvious that he had never before received a tip as big as this. BI, who seems to thoroughly enjoy putting a smile on his face, laughs on in the background.
