- A young lady recently headed online to share how she accidentally bought R500 airtime
- In her post, she also uses crying face emojis and broken hearts, which probably means that it was her last cash
- Many South Africans soon headed to the comment section to share similar sad incidents that happened to them
A young lady recently fell victim to an incorrect purchase after she tried to buy airtime online.
As opposed to buying the amount she could afford, the woman with the Twitter handle, @siiwe_ ended up buying a whopping R500 that she undoubtedly could not afford to buy and so she did the only thing she could do - headed online to complain about it.
"I bought R500 Telkom Airtime ka mistake," she wrote, also adding some heartbroken emojis and some crying faces.
How many times have we accidentally bought the wrong thing on our banking apps? Unfortunately for us, even one time is too many.
Evidently the young woman was not the only victim of these sad mistakes as many other South Africans were soon in the comment section explaining how they once found themselves in similar situations.
Read a few of their comments below:
"l am sorry, l feel you, my sister bought R1 000 water for the house she used to rent the last month before instead of buying R1 000 electricity for the current house."
"My father asked me to buy R100 electricity at beginning of this month. I don't know where my mind was. By the time the meter started singing, I saw 690kw loaded. A whole R1 000 gone in 30 seconds. I felt sick same time. Shame my dad was understanding about it."
In other Briefly News, many say that honesty is the best policy but in today's world it's sadly a rarity. People generally seem to be shocked when they meet someone who is honest and truthful about things. This was the reaction of Facebook user MakaBoyz MaZulu BoyzMaame.
MakaBoyz was left in a difficult position recently when she accidentally sent money to the wrong number. Her intention was to send money to her husband's number, unfortunately she typed in the wrong digits and the money made it's way somewhere else.
After calling her bank and realising she could not reverse the payment, MakaBoyz proceeded to phone the number that had received the money. To her surprise, a lovely man answered and sent the money back to her.
