Comments of praise

Saffas are loving the kind gesture and say it's the little things that make the biggest difference. Some are even sharing their own experience with pleasant taxi drivers who go the extra mile to make their passengers feel special.
"A kind and sweet gesture, indeed. I once went and done my practical exams at Durbanville private hospital and on the way the taxi driver asked me why I'm so stressed, he then gave me one of his souvenir collections that he decorated in his taxi. Fifteen years later and I still have it. We still have a lot of kind-hearted people amongst us."
"So sweet! We have a driver like that who works between Lombardy East and Johannesburg. He thinks it's his duty to make passengers feel special in his taxi. We get sweets or fruits. We love it like that!!!"
Dolly Sibande Khumo:
"That is so much. If a person gives you something, especially when you didn't ask, that is more than enough. Nothing in giving is less than what you deserve. May he be blessed. Thank you sir."
Chantelle De Klerk:
"That's pretty cool! Yes I love those Smoothie sweets. All folk appreciate them."
Melanie Caisley Scholtz:
"A gesture of kindness goes a long way and does not need to be big... it's the little things that mean so much to me."
