A South African lady has shared an inspiring story on Facebook group #ImStaying about two security guards who returned R4 000 in cash to her. Melanie Giezing withdrew the money with the intent to buy a part for her car. When she arrived at the car part shop she realised she did not have the money she withdrew.
Arriving back at the bank after her realisation, a security guard approached her to ask what was the problem. She explained her situation and he then called another security guard, who had her cash on hand.
Melanie said the security guard had kept the money with him awaiting the owner's return. They planned to check security footage of who withdrew the money if no one had returned to collect it. Melanie took down their names and promised to give them something when she received her pension.
