A young lady, Rebecca Lekalakala, recently headed to Facebook's ImStaying group to share how she had gone out of her way to return money after she was undercharged by a local store employee.
"Hey, Stayers. On the 24th of Dec, I went to Rage to buy sandals and I bought two pairs of them. At the time I made the payment the shop was already closed. It was me and my younger sister left inside the shop.
"While I was sitting on a couch watching TV, I decided to check my slips. Only to find out that I bought two pairs of sandals for R22.99 instead of R229.99. I was very worried that they may cut off her job due to a shortage of money.
"So today after work I did pass by, I got there, greeted the lady, and explained to her. She was so surprised that I came back. She called the lady who was helping me that day, and she was so happy because she was supposed to pay and write a statement," she wrote.
She then explains how the lady was overjoyed that she came back, also puzzled by it, but she told the grateful cashier that she did not want to get her in trouble.
Stayers had this to say about the post:
Erence Raseruthe said:
"We need more people like you I wish you can be a manager one of the good day... not heartless people that we see in different workplaces."
