This brave Mzansi man took the front seat - and refused to count. In a clip uploaded by Chris_Plaatjie to Twitter, the man can be seen absolutely refusing to be the front-seat calculator.
He can be seen causing a whole scene in the taxi, questioning why he should be forced to count for the driver. While himself and the driver have a hilarious face-off, the other passengers laugh out loud at the predicament they found themselves in.
Other passengers however complained that their time was being wasted, telling the unidentified young man to simply get out, a request which the man refused. He then threatened to beat the driver up for trying to intervene.
There seems to be an unspoken rule regarding the front seat and adding up everyone's taxi fare. While the taxi drivers and their passengers never actually discussed it, the person who sits in the front seat does the calculations.
While the calculations are often simple, there seems to be a lingering pressure on the counter, this could be accredited to the fact that the person just isn't friends with maths, or knowing that even a R1 missing can result in the taxi being stopped.
Either way, most people avoid sitting there.
Twitter users found the whole situation hilarious and shared their thoughts in the comments section. Here are some of those comments.
"Dude doesn't fit the curriculum."
"Ndakuqhekeza ngenqindi" Dude is traumatized."
"Clearly this isn't a Zulu Taxi Driver otherwise.....well let's just leave it at that"
Briefly.co.za also reported about an Australian man who goes by the name Matt Wright went viral this week after he posted a video of him shooing away a 13-foot crocodile nicknamed Bonecruncher.
Fox News reports that the funny incident happened while he was trying to get logs out from a river. In the viral video, he could be seen being tailed by the big crocodile.
The croc silently was swimming to him as he made the video speaking into the camera. Just when the animal was getting too close, he shooed it, telling the crocodile to stay away. That act was one very unbelievable moment.
Wright yelled, “Go away! Get out!”. Then he commanded it to “Sit!” as if he was addressing a dog.
