A young mother, Nhlapo Sgegede Nomvula recently headed to Facebook's ImStaying to share a touching post about how she had arrived late for an interview but still got the job thanks to the understanding receptionist at the company who both reassured her and gave her a drink to pull herself together.
"On Friday I had my staying moment and I was shown kindness that's just beyond me so I had an interview only to be dropped by the person who promised to babysit my child, I ran around like a headless chicken trying to find a babysitter eventually I did but I got to my interview late as I had to walk there, when I arrived I was sweaty and breathless with dusty shoes.
"I explained to the receptionist who I was she told me I was over 30 minutes late seeing the disappointment in my eyes she offered me a wipe to go wipe off the sweat and dust. She then promised to go and ask the interviewer if they can still interview me.
"Upon my return from the bathroom she gave me her squeeze bottle with juice to drink she told me to sit down the interviewer will see me in 15 minutes. When I got to my interview the interviewer asked why I was late I answered honestly. The interview went well and I received a call when I was on my way home to report for duty today apparently Mr khosa was impressed by my persistent nature. #I'm staying because of sis Ntombi and Mr khosa," she wrote happily.
