A young woman, Tshego Penyenye, recently headed to Facebook's ImStaying to share a heartwarming post about how she and a kind car guard came through for each other at a time when they both needed it a lot.
"I gave him 7 Rands and he thanked me. I watched how he was begging drivers to give him some coins or something to eat. He had no luck I was remaining with only 20 Rands in my pocket and asked my niece if she had anything with her. She gave me 20 Rands and we called the guy and gave him our last remaining to go get something to eat."
She then goes on to explain how the next time she had felt dizzy while waiting for her sister in the parking lot of the same hospital when this time the car guard came to her rescue and bought her something to fill herself.
"I felt dizzy and weak. I was so scared and the same car guard came to me and asked if I am ok. he saw my car and remembered me. He realized that I was not ok and he went out to get me some water.
"He was so concerned and even asked when was the last time I cleaned my stomach. He gave me water and kept on checking on me. After an hour he came and asked if I have eaten. I told him I had breakfast in the morning.
"I didn't have money with me and only had a bottle of water. He went all out and asked another driver if he can give him money he wants to get me something to eat. He managed to get money and bought me a big bottle of mageu."
She then ends the lengthy post by saying how he waited for her to be okay. She also adds that her sister welcomed beautiful twins into the family and they all tanked the car guard for his kindness.
