A grateful South African woman, Zeenat Patel, recently shared how a good-hearted OR Tambo employee named Nobuhle displayed real decency after returning her mother's cellphone that was lost at the airport.
"I have to share this wonderful story of Nobuhle who works at O.R. Thambo Aiport. I picked up my parents from the airport earlier at Terminal B. When we arrived home we realised that my mom was missing her cellphone.
"I called the number and not only did this lovely woman answer the phone, but she also gave us all the details on where to collect the phone with her personal number.
"We rushed straight back to the airport from Pretoria. She refused to accept a reward as this is company policy. It is extremely rare to not only find lost cellphones but to find them in an airport with hundreds and thousands of people," she wrote.
She ended the heartwarming post by saying how grateful she is for people who continue to display true kindness and decency. Meanwhile, Stayers had this to say:

Wendy Omullane said:
"I have always found them all friendly and helpful. Thank you Nobuhle, always lovely that people appreciate what you do for people."
