Russell Dickson shared an amazing story in the #ImStaying group on Facebook. He explained that an elderly lady, Johanna, had come into the tire shop to have her tires and battery replaced.
When she tried to pay, her credit card wouldn't work. A lady, Tina Dolman, sitting in reception overheard what was happening and offered to pay for the woman.
Johanna burst into tears when Tina made the offer and Russel said there was not a dry eye in the shop.
Thandi, Johanna's daughter, arrived and when she heard what had happened she also burst into tears.
Russel thanked Tina calling her an angel in disguise.
"Just witnessed a #ImStaying moment, an elderly lady Johanna came to have tyres and a battery fitted at our shop. There was a problem with her credit card, an amazing lady seated in reception, Tina Dolman had heard our conversation, called me one side and told me that she would pay the bill."
"When I told Johanna what had just happened, she burst into tears, believe me, there was not a dry eye in the shop. Thandi, Joanna's daughter walked in and her Mom explained what had just happened, more tears flowed."
"It's moments like this that give me hope for our country and its people. I just wish politicians would take heed of the good that happens in our country, and stop dividing us. Thank you, Tina Dolman, you are an angel in disguise."
Facebook users took to the post to share their reactions to the inspirational story:
"Something went into my eyes God bless you in abundance Tina and your ENTIRE family ♥️♥️"
"Lovely! Every day there is goodness and compassion in this country. It's just that some choose not to see it and prefer hatred and division."
Lynne Van Der Westhuizen-Benjamin:
"If not why not. Isn’t it just awesome to bless in what ever way you can. What a wonderful, kind gesture ❤️."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Emily Hein-Visagie took the #ImStaying group on Facebook to share her inspiring story about how she was able to help out an elderly couple.
She was behind the couple at the till and noticed that the cashier was ringing back some toiletries the couple couldn't afford.
Emily took the opportunity to do a good deed and paid for the items which included bath soap, toothpaste, lotion and roll on.
